Blue and glitter for the eyes, orange and coral for nails and lips, and skin that's are almost bare: see how you can achieve this season's beauty look.
Colours are bold this season, but pretty. Think blues and glitter for the eyes and coral, hot pink and red for the lips. Picture: Photoshot
Azure is THE shade of the season when it comes to the eyes and yes, you are supposed to wear it with a bright lipstick. Just stick to the lid and avoid the brow bone for a pretty look rather than a punk one. This cream shadow by NYX, £5, is the perfect hue and the applicator makes it a doddle to apply.
Eyes are not subtle in this look. Glitter and sparkly shadows are huge, so get on the trend and bag yourself this gorgeous palette by Sleek Makeup in Garden Of Eden, £7.99.
This season is all about luscious, full and colourful lips. A shiny, high pigmented lipstick such as Bourjois's new Aqua Laque, £8.99, come in lots of bright colours and will help you achieve the look.
Coral and orange shade trends are fun and a nod to the 1970s - huge this season. Try Nyx Butter Lipstick in Hot Tamale, £7.
If you prefer a more natural look you are in luck, as another big trend this season is nude. From eyes to cheeks and lips, the au naturel look is in. However, a touch of colour is needed or you'll look washed out. Add it with a natural, tinted lip balm, such as Lanolips, £8.16.
Skin is dewy, fresh and natural. Click on the next picture to see how you can achieve this look with skincare and makeup. Picture: Photoshot
The face takes centre stage this season, so don't scrimp on your cleanser. A cheap one can be really harsh on the skin, making it dry, red and flaky. Invest in a good quality one such as Aromatherapy Soothing Cleansing Balm, £37. You only need a tiny amount of this superb cleanser to get rid of makeup (including mascara and kohl), making it a money saver in the long run.
An good moisturiser goes a long way and doesn't have to be pricey. A-derma Hydralba Light Hydrate UV Cream, £14.50, is one of the best we've tried. Light, easily absorbing and yet highly moisturising, it has added UV protection against the harmful sun rays and it's fragrance free, making it ideal for those with sensitive skin and all other types. A true beauty hero.
Coconut oil is being hailed as a wonder ingredient in skincare thanks to its hydrating, anti-ageing properties and versatility. Use it at night instead of night cream, for a truly emollient effect or as a mask when you need extra tlc. Also excellent as a body moisturiser, on eczema, hair and cooking. Coconoil, from £6.99.
It's important to wear eye cream all year around to protect the sensitive area around your peepers. Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream, £20, tackles fine lines, puffiness, dark shadows and revives. Light and easily absorbed, this is ideal even for those who find eye creams too heavy.
Dr Organic Dead Sea Mineral Bio-Plasma Mud Mask, £7.99, deeply cleanses whilst providing an anti-ageing and firming effect, thanks to the properties of Dead Sea mineral salt and mud. Perfect to clarify the skin and giving it a youthful appearance.
BB creams are an excellent alternative to foundation and they are much lighter, letting your beautiful skin shine through. Perfect for this season's dewy trend. Balance Me Natural Perfection BB Cream SPF 25, £26.
If you have oily, combination skin or a few blemishes, a medium coverage foundation may be more suitable. Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Foundation SPF 20, £5.99, is an excellent option with great staying power and it shields from UV rays too.
The skin is bright and dewy. If yours is a little lacklustre, cheat with Dr Lewinns Skin Perfect Illuminiser, £22. Dot it on your cheeks for a healthy glow.
To set your makeup, get rid of shine and add luminosity, dust a thin veil of translucent powder on your face. Lily Lolo Mineral Finishing Powder, £13.49, also minimises lines and creates and has a light diffusing effect.
Hands are manicured this spring, with nails kept mid length and oval-shaped. And the colours? Just like lips, corals and oranges of course! Picture: Photoshot
OPI has some great on trend shades, such as I Eat Mainely Lobster Nail Lacquer, Aloha and A Good Man-darin is Hard To Find Nail Lacquer, £11.95.
Nudes and pale pinks are still hot for the spring and summer and go with the natural look alternative to the bright one. Models Own Hypergel in Pink Veneer, £4.99, is pretty and on trend.
For a pop of hot colour, try Barry M in Raspberry, £2.99.
If you like your nails the colour of the sea and you want to match them to your azure eye shadow, Rimmel do lots of shades perfect for the hotter months, £2.99.
