Spring is on the horizon and with it a slew of pastel shadows, creamy lip balms and skin balancing nourishers. We’ve separated the men from the boys and have rounded up our favourite new Spring beauty releases so far.
This goes out to all the matte eye look lovers that were waiting for this day to come. Glossier answered all our prayers by coming out with this super easy to apply liquid-to-powder eye shadow. The seven shades cover come in a range of pastels to neutral earth tones and are buildable and a great way of getting an understated wash of colour.
Laura Mercier knows all primers are not created equal. As much as you want to try every primer possible, it’s better to go for the ones that target your specific skin type or concern. These six silicon-free formulas are the answer: there’s the hydrating one with marine hydra botanicals; the illuminating one for glow; the blurring one for a pore-refining matte finish; the one with SPF and the one that ‘good for you’ one boosted with Vitamin C and Aloe Vera.
Milk Makeup’s new lip scrub is the perfect way to scrub your lips into Spring. This smoothing formula contains sugar crystals and hemp seed exfoliators alongside jojoba and olive oils for hydration. We love the easy to apply twist-up tube which is perfect for on the go days.
Huda says goodbye to warmed toned shades with these three pastel eyeshadow palettes in Pink, Lilac and Mint. Each palette has nine shades, making them great if you want to slowly dive into the pastel trend. There are five mattes and three metallic shades, but we are obsessed with the marble swirls in each one.
We know we can count on Summer Fridays for their incredibly pretty packaging and hydrating formulas. This cleanser can be used in your morning routine and is perfect as a second step for double cleansing. It’s pH balancing and it contains 11 different amino acids making it a good option for every skin type.
