Now that spring has firmly sprung here in the UK, it’s time to ditch your heavy winter makeup and start thinking about how to really achieve a beautiful springtime glow… perfect for day and night!

The good news is that it’s actually very easy to get this look for yourself and you don’t have to bust your budget to pick up the essentials required where your makeup bag is concerned either. However, you will need to make sure you focus on your skincare regime this season as springtime looks are typically a bit more pared back. Remember that less is more with makeup at this time of year!

Never forget to wash your face with a gentle cleanser morning and night, followed up with a good face oil that will really sink into your skin. After that, apply a light moisturiser with an SPF factor of at least 15, or you could use a BB cream that has it in it (which will also help reduce the appearance of your pores).

Once you’ve taken care of your skin and are happy with the results, now’s the time to start making yourself up! For a beautiful springy glow, use minimal foundation if you can. If you really don’t feel confident, you can always use BB cream as mentioned or a light concealer, but remember that you’re going for a barely there look.

Get yourself a good pigmented rosy blush to sweep over your cheekbones and opt for pink glossy lips, as well as using a cream gloss eye shadow to complete the look. A sweep of mascara and some highlighter on your cheekbones, down the middle of your nose, above your eyebrows and on your cupid’s bow will finish the look off perfectly.
