When you’re looking for makeup inspiration, where do you turn? To a favourite celeb or iconic era? Well this season, why not take a leaf out of the books of the world’s top makeup artists and look to Mother Nature herself.
Looking perfect for spring, models were sent down SS15 catwalk like forest sprites, adorned with nature-inspired pale pinks, sage greens, sky blues and woodland browns. Bring a little new season fresh air to your beauty look with these natural palettes.
Natural is the name of the game so tints and glosses are preferable over heavy or matte finishes when it comes to lips. Take your inspiration from rose petals and ripe summer berries.
Nature-inspired shades are perfect for eyeshadows because the soft, neutral tones enhance eyes rather than crowding them and making them look smaller. Choose your tones depending on your eye colour; lilacs, blues and deep browns for brown eyes, forest greens and berry shades for hazel eyes, sandy neutrals, pale corals and aqua shades for blue eyes and sage greens and pinky browns for green eyes.
Get the look: Find pale petal pinks and woodland browns & forest in the Technic Sultry Palettes, neutral sand tones in W7 Cosmetics In The City Natural Nudes palette and aqua-inspired shades in the L.A. Girl Reflections Palette.
Like lips, this season’s cheeks should show a natural flush; think sunset-blushed clouds rather than heavy bronze contouring or retro rouge. Blend a little dusky pinks or rose-petal red on the apples of your cheeks (you can practice a cheeky grin in the mirror to find out where these are!) for a perfectly effortless blush.
Get the look: L.A. Girl’s Blush Palettes have four perfect shades to suit all skin tones and can be mixed and matched to find your ideal colour.
