Ladies, it’s official, March is finally here, and at last we can cast off the shackles of winter and look ahead to the return of spring. As daffodils and snowdrops begin to appear, creating a carpet of blossoming colour across the nation, now is the time to also implement those beauty trends that will inject a little much needed glow back into our skin.
Luckily for you, I’ve got the lowdown on all the beauty secrets you’ll need to ensure your skin is glowing this season, as women everywhere begin gearing up for a beauty overhaul.
With the sun putting in a more regular appearance, it’s time to regain that natural glow. Garnier BB Cream is a miracle skin protector that promises to reduce the look of fine lines, redness and imperfections, leaving you with a luminous and fresh complexion. This product also seeks to add some much needed hydration to your skin following the long dry spell of winter.
If, like many sensible people, you spend the chillier periods of the year wrapped up in a state of hibernation, then no doubt your skin will now be in need of a little TLC. Firstly, we need to address the sensitive topic of shaving. It’s been a long winter, whereby a little extra leg hair is sometimes required simply for that added layer of warmth. However, with winter now over, it’s time to take control of the situation and claim back some femininity. Uberwurst Shaving Crème transforms into a rich cushioning mousse, eradicating the need for any other pre-shaving products, making this whole process a lot less painful.
Once you feel ready to ‘dare to bare’, you need to make sure those pins are feeling silky and smooth. A good exfoliator like Thalgo Sweet & Savoury Body Scrub will help to eliminate any rough patches and leave your skin feeling beautifully soft. The multi-sensory scrub will also ensure you go about your day smelling like roses, as the product is infused with the deliciously sweet scents of Mediterranean essential oils.
Big, bold and fluttering eyelashes are emerging as one of the key make-up trends of the season. We’ve seen models and celebs rocking this statement style and we’re keen to get on board the bandwagon! L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes is our go-to mascara for creating this striking fanned out lash look. However, I recommend using the waterproof version just in case you get caught in any of those April showers.
So ladies, one big tip you need to be aware of - less is more. Especially when the new ‘it’ hairstyle is making the rounds this spring, as the hottest ‘must-have’ style trend. The recent Michael Kors catwalk during New York Fashion Week showcased this look with models wearing extra loose, wispy braids in an almost dishevelled and lived in look. Think bed head chic. To tousle your hair into a loose and effortless style, use Kevin Murphy FRESH.HAIR. This dry shampoo gives body and texture to lifeless hair and will help you on your way to achieving a romantic look that embodies the freshness of the season.
If you like a bit more structure to your hair then may I suggest the more quaffed style of the ‘low pony’. This hair trend is very popular amongst celebs, as it draws attention to the face and is extremely flattering on the eye. Bed Head Candy Fixations Glaze Haze Serum will nourish your hair leaving it easy to manage into those sleek styles. The serum will add lots of shine that will radiate throughout the day and into those ever-warmer nights. And if that didn’t sell it to you, may I just inform you that this wonderfully fragrant product is enriched with the scents of crème brûlée that will leave your hair smelling good enough to eat!
Take note of these springtime beauty tips and you’ll be looking blooming lovely and ready to take on the new season in no time!
