With the days starting to get longer and the weather warming up, it is time to start thinking about beauty trends for the new season. There are some great looks trending that will help you to move towards summer and enjoy some fun makeup. As ever, your makeup should be applied after following your normal skincare routine.

Red lips

Try reducing your eye makeup and choosing a matte red lipstick for a fresh, stylish look. You can achieve a natural ‘just been kissed’ pout by blending your lipstick using a finger, which is totally on trend for a less-perfect blurred edge to the lip.

Golden eye

This is not a homage to the Bond film but rather a quick, modern take on the classic golden smoky eye. This can be a speedy look to achieve by using a product such as the peachy gold in the nude eyeshadow palette from Benefit makeup and blending it using your finger for a perfect smoky eye. This look never goes out of style and can glamorise any ensemble.

Glowing skin

This skincare trend, termed yoga skin after the belief that your face will be naturally glowing after a yoga class, is expected to be huge this spring. Fortunately for the less bendy amongst us, this glossy look can easily be faked using products from Benefit makeup. A clever trick is to use a highlighter under your foundation in place of primer for a beautiful dewy glow.

Nude pink eyeshadow

The SS19 catwalks were bombarded with pretty and fresh eyeshadows. Nude pink shades can create a soft, romantic look, which is perfect for the daytime in spring. To take it into the evening, try adding a subtle pop of glittery eyeshadow. Red carpet events are even seeing celebrities with an entirely pink makeup palette if you would like to try taking the look even further.

Sheer textures

Another trend to look out for from the SS19 catwalks is creamy textures. These products can suit everybody, with buildable formulas that can really enhance your complexion. Try creamy eyeshadows for wonderful smoky eyes and the liquid blush from Benefit makeup, which can blend to a beautiful, delicate glow.

With the right products, there are some fun, simple looks to experiment with as we head into spring.
