I love ILIA’s Jump for its wearability and versatility. You can wear it down for a sheer effect or build it up for a stronger look.

This foundation has a nice lightweight finish that gives skin a lovely glow. It is perfect to keep in your handbag for quick touch-ups later in the day.

This is amazing worn underneath your make-up to give skin a gorgeous radiance. I also use it later in the day over make-up to refresh the skin.

Blue dominated the Spring/Summer runways this season and this shadow is the perfect way to try the trend for yourself. Try smudging it into lashes for a subtle effect or apply over the entire lid for a bolder look

I love cream blushers and this one is perfect for enhancing that fresh Spring glow. Apply it with your fingers up along the cheekbones to help lift the contours of the face.

Top Tip for Spring 2014

This Spring is all about healthy skin, so get yours in tiptop condition by treating it to a weekly mask to blow away the winter cobwebs. Try S5 Skincare’s new Vitality Mask to help brighten and smooth your complexion.
