Your beauty bag for springtime makeup

With every season come new makeup trends. The arrival of Spring 2015 is the opportunity to take a look at the colors and textures that we need to be adding to our beauty bags.

The fresh feeling of Spring-Summer 2015

This season's beauty focuses on natural and light looks, such as barely-there makeup and a glowing complexion. Skin should stay hydrated and radiant.

Don't force yourself to copy looks from the runway: it's rarely a good idea to go all-out, as you often see on the catwalks. Focus on one detail. For a day-to-day look, avoid going over-the-top, especially pairing a bright lip with a smoky eye. Emphasize either the eyes or the mouth, but never try to do both.

Adapting trends

Trends are here to inspire you. But they can also be adapted to your own beauty type, especially to your skin and eye color. To bring out blue eyes, brown, orange, gold, saffron yellow and copper are ideal shades. If you have green eyes, opt for purple shades such as prune or violet. Brown eyes look great with deep blue makeup.

The color you choose for your makeup should complement your eye color, but your skin tone also needs to be taken into consideration. What suits your eyes doesn't necessarily suit your complexion. For example, if you have brown eyes, you can wear turquoise. However, if your skin color has yellow hues to it, you will end up looking even more yellow-toned with turquoise makeup.

Your successful makeup routine

Perfect makeup application also requires a tailored skincare routine, especially when it comes to taking care of your skin's needs. Your epidermis needs to be well-hydrated. Follow this with an anti-wrinkle cream. For your makeup, give yourself a rosy glow by blending little dabs of lipstick onto your cheeks (and lips!) and finish with a coat of mascara on your lashes. For Spring 2015, you will need three indispensable products: foundation, which you should choose according to your requirements; lipstick in a fresh shade such as Wanted Rouge Charm to accentuate your mouth; and a volumizing mascara like Lash Queen Mystic Blacks.

For an on-trend Spring 2015 beauty bag, think 'fresh' and 'light' looks, and make sure to take care of your skin for a flawless finish.
