Just as trees sprout new leaves and flowers begin to bloom, spring presents all of us with an opportunity to start afresh for the new season.
While many see the beginning of spring as a time to refresh and “spring clean,” we’re taking a moment this season to update our beauty routine. The clouds have finally parted ways for the sun and the weather is beginning to heat up, so we’re taking cues from our surrounds and warming up our winter beauty routine.
From injections of floral inspired hues to skin finishes reminiscent of spring dew, these are the products we’re using to refresh our mineral makeup for the new season.
The weather is growing warmer, and your makeup should reflect that change in the seasons. To celebrate the notion that summer is just around the corner, we’re working warm, golden hues into our spring beauty routine.
Add a healthy, spring flush to the cheeks with a glistening bronzing powder, like our Rose Dawn Bronzer. This finely milled cheek compact contains four rich, rose and bronze shades - swirl all four hues together to customise your complexion, or use a fine brush like the White Fan Brush to pick up each individual colour for precision application.
Extend that spring warmth to the body by adding some seasonal colour to the shoulders, legs and décolletage. Apply a shimmering, golden lotion to any areas of the skin that you wish to catch the light and bathe in colour. Golden Shimmer Face and Body Lotion is a multipurpose solution, allowing you to add sheer, luminous colour wherever you feel you need it.
Your Beauty Bouquet
Embrace the new season by taking inspiration from spring flora. This spring, inject a pop of colour into your beauty routine by way of peony pink lip colours inspired by a seasonal posey. Cool, creamy pinks will add a spring sensibility to your makeup in the most subtle of ways. For makeup that looks polished and considered, choose a hue similar to your spring cheek colour - this will tie your entire spring look together with ease. Minimal effort, maximum impact.
Seasonal Skin Finishes
Beyond our seasonal colour choices, we’re using spring as a time to experiment with new season textures. This season sees the arrival of the NEW Beyond Matte Liquid Foundation, a formula that delivers intense hydration to the skin and mattifies the excess shine that often comes hand in hand with a shift towards warmer weather, while maintaining your complexion’s radiance.
To give the skin a dewy, spring sheen, swap out your winter-ready pressed powders in favour of the sheer, glowing coverage of a loose powder. We love the Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder Foundation as it delivers sheer, natural coverage with a sun protection factor of 20+ to help shield the skin from spring rays.
