While your wardrobes are already bursting at the seams with spring/summer essentials, your make-up bag leaves a lot to be desired. Stocked with Autumn/Winter looks it’s time to clear out those deep berry lipsticks and porcelain powders and make way for your fresh summer face. We have the low down on the hottest spring/summer looks that you will be dying to road test. While some are not for the faint hearted others are nude and natural. So sit back, relax and get ready for your make-up master class.

The Natural Look.
Clean fresh faces were seen all over the runway, from Julian Macdonald to Marc Jacobs. A good natural base is a must have to build any look upon. There are two routes to go down, dewy or matt. If you’re prone to shine like the sun try a mattifying powder we recommend L’Oreal’s Mattifying Minerals powder, to add more interest select a slightly darker shade on top to contour the face.

For a dewy look select a liquid foundation, such as MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation or Bobbi Brown’s Tinted Moisturizing Balm for a sheer finish. To achieve that sought after dewy glow sweep on MAC’s Iridescent Loose Powder on the cheek bones and highlight where the sun would naturally hit. For a fresh faced look finish off with a touch of cream blush, try Becca in Turkish Rose. For a sun-kissed sheen a touch of bronzer, we like Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick  in Beige for a hint of colour and shine.
