Springing into beauty action

It’s no shock that I’m obsessed with Spring – i mean after months of the cold who isn’t right? I’m definately done with Winter and every now and then Paris teases us with a warm day reminding me what to look forward to!
We may still be a few weeks away but I’m already in the Spring mood, and a very red one at that. These are the beauty products helping my frame of mind along…

OPI nail lacquer in Red my Fortune Cookie: There are nothing like short red nails to enliven an outfit, not that I reserve this colour only for the hotter months, in fact, I’ll choose this colour any time of year. It just feels more fitting when I can match it to my wardrobe.

Clarins Eau des Jardins: The perfect scent for hot weather, and as the name implies, the fragrance reminds me of a spring garden.  Created with essential oils and dry oils – although the fragrance is not at all oily – it leaves the skin feeling more moisturised which adds extra skin care benefits. A real mix of fragrances such as grapefruit, lemon, bergamot, mint, vetiver (the list goes on), all I can really smell is spring!

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy lipstick in Envious: This rouge à lèvres is an essential in my make-up bag. Not only is it super moisturising but the pigment stays on without ‘caking’ and leaving a red ring around the edge of the lips with nothing in the middle. It’s easy to apply with the perfect amount of glossiness too.

MAC matte in Lady Danger: While I love a glossy lip, I’m in love with a matte lip at the moment. I think it’s the contrast of a luminescent skin with a matte lip and MAC have a gorgeous range of bright colours perfect for …. you guessed it … spring!
