Spring is in the air and it’s getting sunny and warm, well at least on some days. Late spring and early summer is the perfect time for a natural "effortless" makeup look. This particular time of the year is all about light textures and neutral colours. We have rounded up a list of our top makeup picks for Spring/Summer 2015 for a radiant fresh look!
Complexion. Smooth, velvety skin is a dream, but with the right products this dream can easily come true! Cover all small skin imperfections like blemishes, dark circles around the eyes and redness with Avril Beauté Certifié Bio Concealer using finger tips or Ecotools Airbrush Concealer Brush.
Instead of conventional liquid foundation or compact powder why not try Lavera Natural Mousse Make-Up. This product gives medium coverage with a lovely velvety finish. It is very easy to apply, feels weightless on the skin and lasts a long time. Apply Antipodes Translucent Skin-Brightening Mineral Finishing Powder with either EcoTools Retractable Kabuki Brush or Antipodes Natural Hair Kabuki Brush to set your makeup to make it warm weather proof and to add a radiant finish.
Eyes & Brows. To define your eyes and not to overdo it is a key for any makeup look. But for this time of year you might want to strip down your eye makeup as much as you can. Avril Certifié bio Eyeshadow Désert or Benecos Natural Mono EyeShadow So What give very light colour with a bit of shimmer for a radiant look. Choose brown mascara instead of the black one for a softer look. We really like Lavera Volume Mascara in Brown for this purpose. To achieve a more polished look, use an eyeliner pencil in a soft brown colour like Green People Pencil Eyeliner in Forest Brown. Benecos Natural Eyebrow Designer is perfect for shaping and contouring eyebrows.
Cheeks. For medium and tanned skin tones, it might be time to add light-coloured bronzers like Avril Certifié bio Bronzer Ambree. For fair and light complexions, soft pink or peachy pink blushers would be more suitable. Beauty Without Cruelty Mineral Duo Blusher Pressed in Sweet Apricot or Radiant Rose have lighter and darker shades in one pallet to give you a better control over colour.
Small hint: Avril Certifié bio Eyeshadow Désert can be used as a highlighter if applied above cheeks, eyebrows and along the nose line to add extra glow and to bring out facial features.
Lips. Nude, soft coral and peachy pink are some of the best options for lips to add just a hint of colour and to plump lips. If you are a lipstick lover, check Beauty Without Cruelty Natural Infusion Moisturising Lipstick in Cherry Blossom or Benecos Natural Lipstick in Pink Honey. If you prefer lipgloss then Beauty Without Cruelty Soft Natural Lipgloss in Nude will be a good choice.
