Spring Beauty Notes

Thinking of Spring

My must-have beauty products for the new season

Ok so it's only just August, but it's 26 degrees today and I'm officially excited for Spring.

I like to keep things simple in the warmer months, using Bobbi Brown BB cream and YSL touche eclat to highlight and conceal. Three of my favourite beauty purchases to make at the start of a new season are fragrance ( I like something new to mix in with my old classics), a new nail polish colour (I love nude and blush tones for spring) and a lip colour that can work for both day and evening.

For this Spring I'm thinking of investing in Byredo's Mojave Ghost fragrance. Gypsy Water has always been my favourite for Summer but with my upcoming travel I feel like being a little adventurous. B. by Balenciaga has become a go-to for evening (the scent is just incredible) and I love the freshness of the new Marc Jacobs Mod Noir fragrance which I'll be wearing more once the weather warms up.

My usual spring nail colours are O.P.I Samoan Sand and Chanel Ballerina, for this Spring I'm thinking of giving Tom Ford Toasted Sugar polish a try and also experimenting with a peachy colour, like Mecca Comsetica's Bridgette or Jessica.

As far as lips go, last year I mixed YSL Rouge Volupte in Coral with a little bit of Paw Paw Ointment to soften the colour. This season I'm looking at softer colours like Sunday Riley's Bare Honey and RMS Beauty lip2cheek in Smile.

What's on your beauty radar for the new season?
