Enhancing Your Spring Look

Hair ­Plaits with Twists

Nothing says ‘undone’ sexiness like a side plait with loose tendrils framing the face, or a plait twisted into a classy chignon at the nape of the neck. For maximum hold and texture, use a pliable hair wax, such as TIGI Stick­ A Hair Stick for Cool People. Smoothed through the hair, it will allow you to create a variety of styles with great hold and a wonderfully natural finish.

Eyes ­Anything Blue

Tying in with the denim trend, blue is having its moment this Spring. The beauty of this look is that it can be worn any number of flattering ways: Applied along the lash-line for a subtle flash of colour with Bobbi Brown Long­ Wear Cream Shadow Stick ­Iced Blue 8, a long-­lasting eyeshadow stick. Contrary to popular belief, blue is a colour that can be worn to work, provided that it is blended with other neutral tones for maximum wearability. We absolutely love Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-­Effect Quadra Eyeshadow­ 224 Tisse Riviera...and the gorgeous baby blue in NARS Duo Eyeshadow ­ Cleo. To create a striking, dramatic evening look, apply a mid-­blue shade with light­ reflecting particles all over the lid, such as crease-­resistant NARS Shimmer Eyeshadow ­Tropic and frame the inner and outer rims of the eye with creamy and intense NARS Soft Touch Pencil­ Dark Rite.

Lips Loud

If you’re going to wear a lip colour this season, make it LOUD! Emphasis is on impact. Still going strong from Autumn/Winter you cannot go wrong with the shade of deep, purple oxblood for gothic glamour. Shades of crimson, pink and orange are great daytime alternatives. Choose a matte or satin texture for longevity. We absolutely love the shades and feel of NARS Audacious Lipstick.

Nails­ French Manicure (Green, silver, orange or oxblood)

Nails are oh­so­beautiful at the moment...Once again, the deep shade of oxblood (Chanel Vernis­ Rouge Noir) maintains its stronghold and gives a polished, classy finish to fingertips. Shades of moss green (NARS Nail Polish­ Night Porter), speckles of silver and peach or orange (NARS Nail Polish­ Blow Up) nail art inject a fun, fresh alternative most often applied in the technique of the ever­ classic French Manicure.

Lashes ­Clumpy Lashes

No longer the enemy of every person to have ever beheld a mascara wand, this trend is probably the most surprising this Spring. The look is intended to be rebellious, sensual and seductive, a nod to all­night partying and wild times. How to wear this look? Whimsically brush through your lashes top and bottom with a thick ­formulated mascara, such as DIOR Addict It-Lash with as many coats as you possibly can!

Spring, here I come!
