Raise your hands if you’re tired of the winter doldrums! Spring is here so revitalize yourself and your routine with a new outlook and a few of our favorite spring beauty finds from our favorite lines. These are our tried and tested picks – share your Spring favorites in the comments too!



Bold lip color is always a treat, but some moments call for a sheer touch. Tom Ford’s latest edition to his luxe beauty line, the Lip Shine Color offers the moisturizing formula and luxurious packaging we’ve come to expect, but serves up a variety of shades that give a hint of glossy color. Perfect for those balmy days ahead. Take our favorite shade, the sheer red Willfull for a test drive.


Trade in those heavy powders for something rich and creamy, the latest feel good shades from lines like By Terry and Urban Decay are deeply pigmented and provide a welcome burst of color. On the S/S runways we were treated to a variety of vibrant shadow looks and with these creamy pencils it is easy to recreate the look on your own. Give bright shades like Urban Decay’s Glide on Shadow Pencil in Clash or Morphine a go. In the mood for all our opulence – try By Terry’s luxe Ombre Blackstar in Fizzy Jade or the sleek blue, Paradise Island.


Banish winter skin! NUDE’s Omega 6 rich moisturizer stimulates the production of collagen, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants, elements that make us look younger and fresher. If breakouts are an issue instead, NUDE’s Purifying and Cleansing Wash is a gentle way to cleanse without stripping your skin of those essential oils.


Bigger is better, particularly when it comes to luscious, full bodied hair looks. As appealing as the slicked back minimalist ponytail can be, there is just something fun about voluminous body. One of the simplest ways to achieve the look via with Rahua’s all-natural line, complete with shampoo, conditioner and styling products. Our personal favorite, the citrus scented Voluminous Spray is an alcohol free way to add shine, body and texture to revitalize your look.
