As we prepare for a new season, it’s time to go through our wardrobe, and – of course – our make up bags. This Spring eye make up is all about being subtle and natural with a hint of colour. In the case of Matthew Williamson’s Spring Summer 2015 catwalk show, for example, the chosen colour was pink, but you can go for any shade you like as long as you keep it very light, and focus on that barely-there look. Work on your eyebrows and get the best shape you can (I highly recommend Shavata in Marylebone, London, for a fabulous shape) and keep your lipsticks and highlighter or blush natural by using nude tones. It’a all about clean, healthy skin and hair. Eyelashes are also big this season but, again, I recommend that you opt for a natural look (as opposed to a more TOWIE vibe). If mascara isn’t enough for you when framing your eyes, you can use some Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes from Younique, which will attach to your existing lashes like a thick mascara once you apply some primer gel on your lashes; it will then stay on like a normal mascara to give you that great, defined look. I also tried some Moodstruck Mineral Pigment Powder and loved the shimmery finish and hydrating feeling it gave me. Curious is a great white colour that works well with that of-the-moment barely-there look and Confident is a lovely coffee shade that blends into your skin tone effortlessly.
