Five days ago we welcomed the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and whilst the weather isn’t co-operating that’s no excuse to ignore this season’s key beauty trends- particularly when we have done the legwork for you! Take a look at our favourite make-up items for spring 2014, and don’t forget to use Savoo’s discount codes to make the prices even more tempting.
Top Beauty Trends for Spring 2014
Trend #1: Golden Glow
Think gorgeously glowing complexions and swap your bronzing powder for a creamy alternative, like this Dewy Glow Stick from Wild about Beauty. Colours to look out for include peach and apricot, to boost your natural skin colour rather than masking it: Dr Hauschka’s Translucent Bronze Concentrate is ideal for a transparent look.
Trend #2: Barefaced Chic
Sexier than a face full of make-up but often harder to achieve, the barefaced chic look requires well-conditioned skin, clever concealing and an almost invisible base. Invest in a good BB cream like this one from Elizabeth Arden and a concealer for troublesome blemishes.
Trend #3: Technicolour Rainbow
Showcased by Cara Delevingne for Chanel and seen across the spring/summer 2014 catwalk, technicoloured make-up is everywhere this season. Play around with colourful eyes with liquid eyeliners from Urban Decay, or choose one vibrant shade like this cobalt blue eyeshadow by New CID.
Trend #4: Bright Orange Lips
Lip Library available from Look Fantastic for £18 | RMK Coral Orange Lipstick also at Look Fantastic, £19
Celebrities like Kate Hudson love experimenting with bright orange lipstick, which works on all skin tones and comes in shades from neon to coral. Lord and Berry has a set of three lipsticks including Fire, Earth and Orange, or you could invest in one single colour to wear every day like this one from RMK.
Trend #5: Graphic Eyeliner
Made popular by pinup girls in the 1950s, chic cat eye flicks are still being paraded down the catwalk in 2014. Get graphic with straight flicks and angular shapes, best achieved with liquid eyeliner like this one from Natio or New CID’s pencil alternative.
Trend #6: Nude Nails
Don’t forget about your nails this spring: jump on the nude pastel bandwagon for perfectly on-trend hands. Nails Inc. has a collection entirely dedicated to dusty pinks, pale greys and slate blues, or you could go apricot with this delicious nail lacquer from Butter London.
Whilst the weather may still be in denial that we have entered spring, with these key beauty trends you will be ready to welcome the sunshine when it finally hits the UK (here’s hoping!)
