Spring Shades

Spring is in the air! With longer days and warmer weather on the horizon, it’s time to take a look at the beauty trends coming your way!

Clean Skin

After the cold winter months, your skin will need some pampering. What better way to do it than giving your skin a well-deserved break in preparation for summer? Light, liquid products will moisturise the skin while covering spots and redness, while some are just opting for cleverly-positioned concealer to give the illusion of perfect, fresh skin. Gently tap product into place to keep it lasting and maintaining a dewy, youthful glow. Try Pacifica Dreamy Cover Foundation for that bare-faced, less-is-more look.

Unexpected Colour

Bright, poppy colours are always popular in the Spring time – but this year, the trend is to wear it in unexpected places! For example, instead of wearing a bright eyeshadow, try running a bright blue eyeliner through the lower lashes on the outer corner! Beauty Without Cruelty Soft Kohl Pencil in Delft Blue is the perfect soft pencil that’s easy to smudge.

Or why not try a brighter blush? Beauty Without Cruelty Mineral Duo Blusher Pressed in Pink Blush will give your cheeks a beautiful, youthful pop of pink without being too overwhelming.

Nails are an easy way to wear this trend - Beauty Without Cruelty Kind Colourful Nails in Heat Haze is a pretty pink colour while the nail varnish itself is totally cruelty free and 100% vegan – simply apply to swipes for an easy, even colour that will protect your nails, too!

Lipstick as Blush

This tried-and-tested idea was a popular practise back in the day – your grandma probably used to do it! It’s a particularly good method if you’re in a rush or if you struggle to match your blush tones to your lipstick; simply swipe your lipstick on your cheeks and gently pat in! It will create a beautiful dewy glow while matching the colour of your lips – plus it’ll save on room in your makeup bag! Beauty Without Cruelty Natural Infusion Moisturising Lipstick in Pomegranate is a perfect, cheerful spring shade; apply with liner for a deeper, more defined look or smudge in gently for a softer, more subtle appearance.

Pacifica Lip Tint in Blood Orange is also great for on-the-go applications as it’s as nourishing as a balm but has a great hint of colour, too!
