For a fresh look this spring, try play­ing with a new eye pal­ette. “Soft greens and blues are beau­ti­ful when paired with min­i­mal, clean make-up ev­ery­where else,” make-up artist and Max Fac­tor am­bas­sador Liz Kelsh says. “Coloured eye­liner is one of my favourite spring beauty trends. Try dark blue for day or emer­ald green for night.”

If you’ve al­ways found the ap­pli­ca­tion of eye­liner a lit­tle chal­leng­ing, try us­ing a gel or creamy liner ap­plied with an an­gled or flat-line brush for more con­trol.

Shades of vi­o­let are another big trend this sea­son, and they suit all eye colours and skin tones. “A great way to wear this trend is by cre­at­ing a bold eye with deep, elec­tric shades of pur­ple,” Scout Cos­met­ics founder Sylvie Hutch­ings says. “Try matte or sub­tle shim­mery shades like li­lac and lavender for a softer day­time look, and re­mem­ber to make one area the fo­cus – for ex­am­ple, if you’re wear­ing bold eyes, give your skin a dewy, fresh look and fin­ish with a nude lip.”

You also don’t have to cover the en­tire lid with dif­fer­ent shades, she says, adding that a sheer wash of one colour is all you need. Spring is all about us­ing lip colours that re­ally pop, Brook says, adding that “a soft berry or tan­ger­ine lip is per­fect”.

How­ever, if you’re go­ing for bold eyes, opt for a nude lip. The trick to work­ing out which nude suits you best is to pick a shade that’s clos­est to the nat­u­ral colour of your gums.

Be­fore ap­pli­ca­tion, prep dry lips by lightly exfoliating them with a tooth­brush, then add a slick of co­conut oil at bed­time to re­hy­drate.
