SIX MAKE-UP HACKS FOR SPRING 2018…

  1. Try a sweep of nude kohl pencil inside the lash line to neutralise pink tones and make eyes seem brighter. A great reasonable pencil for this is Barry M Kohl Pencil in Due £3.99
  2. Add a drop of face oil to your foundation to give your skin a healthy glow. A great face oil is the Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil £30.00
  3. Sweep blush across the tops of your cheeks, over the bridge of your nose and lightly around your hairline which mimics the flush you get from the first rays of the sun and gives you a spring face.
  4. Have a face exfoliation to give your face a healthy spring glow.
  5. If your skin gets a bit unpredictable between seasons, prone to sensitivity or spring-time allergies, a serum which helps strengthen the skin’s natural barrier function is the way to go.
  6. Frame your face with perfect brows. There is nothing like a good brow tidy and tint to make your face come to life.

BRIGHTEN UP YOUR SKIN…

According to Prima regular exfoliation is the key to a healthy glow, and the best way to get this is with an acid toner.

It’s less scary that they sound as they work at dissolving the dead cells, and are often kinder than particle-packed face scrubs.

The latest version are designed to be swept on daily but it is advised to start with a few times a week.

Prima’s top two are Ren Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic which is £25, – Formulated with the health of the skin in mind, REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic helps the natural exfoliating process in the skin while instantly boosting radiance and smoothing the skin texture. A tonic lotion for a luminous and renewed complexion
smoothes, energises, and perfects the skin all in one step, Very gentle towards the skin, it can be used day and night. Targetslack of radiance, uneven skin tone, congestion.
enlarged pores, dry and rough skin.

Glossier Solution at £19. – Unlike physical exfoliators that scrape off the surface of your skin, Solution gently sloughs dead cells away through chemical exfoliation, dissolving the bonds gluing problematic dead cells to the healthy skin beneath. With daily use, expect a reduction in the appearance of redness, blemishes, and pore size. Skin’s texture will be smoother and softer, and the fabled glow of balanced, healthy skin will be in full force. Solution contains a particular 10% blend of three acid actives for maximum efficacy: Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), and Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA). Acids are your friend.
