Spring has sprung: the 4 best lipstick shades for the season

with nosA time typically known for new beginnings, a fresh horizon, awakening, blossoming…

Whatever you believe, there is no better time to brighten your make-up then when spring arrives. We look forward to longer, brighter days and we are one step closer to Summer! (which in England means perhaps two sunny days out of the whole year? or warm rain? – usually the latter is more consistent).

Here are my four favourite spring lipstick shades; as you can see I have opted for nudes (I don’t mean the type which Kim K constantly uploads either) which I think are appropriate. They give a fresh, warm and ,somewhat, natural look. The bright pink tones featured compare to a flower- both eye-catching and bold.

1). Gosh velvet touch matt in 003 antique, £6.99

This is perfect for those of you who enjoy a natural lip, but want to try something a little more bold. Quite a dark brown nude shade, it is a perfect dupe for Kylie Jenner’s lip kits and Mac Whirl/Dervish. Great value lipstick from a reputable high street brand.

2). Chanel rouge allure luminous matte lip colour in 50 la romanesque, £26

A dark fuchsia which really makes a statement, a great alternative to a classic red matte lip. Bang on trend as pinks and peaches were spotted on the runway this season at brands such as Rodarte and Dior. Channel your inner Bridget Bardot with timeless Chanel.

3). Mac cremesheen lip colour in peach blossom, £15.50

I know your thinking this is a more expensive version of the Gosh lipstick. But it really isn’t, as any make-up junkie knows very well, you can never have too many lipsticks of the same shade (and no they aren’t actually the same, they vary slightly – it takes a trained eye to spot this/an OCD make-up freak). But the texture on this Mac lipstick is dewy and shiny, as opposed to giving a matte finish. The colour is also lighter and sheer – the perfect natural lip.

4). Mac lustre lip colour in lustering, £15.50

50 shades of pink right? You got it. This fuchsia is a coral variation, with a matte finish. Not one for the faint-hearted, gives a rich girly pink colour guaranteed to make the boys wink.
