GET THE LOOK: Spotlight on Highlights
Let’s hear it for highlights - nothing makes skin look fresh and healthy like a dab of luminizer on the top of cheekbones, cupid’s bow and on the inner corners of eyes. RMS Beauty’s Living Luminizer is my not so secret weapon and gives an I-only-drink-green-tea-and-practice-yoga-daily glow.

GET THE LOOK: Pretty Pastels
I love this look - soft pretty pastels blended from the outer corners of the eyes. It’s perfect for Spring! I think these colours from Nvey cosmetics would all look gorgeous when applied this way:
Letting natural beauty shine through will never go out of style. The key to this look is to prep for gorgeous, glowing skin by applying a resurfacing mask (try Nude Miracle Mask or Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask - reviews of both coming soon!), then using a nourishing serum for maximum hydration (I recommend Franc Essential Serum). If wearing makeup stick to shades that are similar to your skin tone: pinky blushes, clear or peachy glosses, not too much bronzer (if any) and just a hint of mascara.
GET THE LOOK: Olivia Palermo’s Shimmery Grey Eyes
Love Olivia Palermo’s update on the traditional smokey eye using shimmery silver and grey tones. Alima Pure has a great range of silvery and grey shadows in a range of finishes - my picks are Ava, Stone, and Zen.
As with all smokey eyes, use a variety of shades in the same colour tone and cover the entire lid with the medium shade, use the darker shade in the crease and on the outer ‘wings’ of the eyes, and the lightest shade to highlight browbones and light up the inner corners of the eyes.
Keep the rest of the look simple and finish with a volumising mascara and light slick of pale pink or nude lipgloss.
