My colour obsessions of the season are picante (warm brown), straw (a dirty beige), coral blush, turtle green and ethereal green.

Tips for wearing a spring/summer colour: Focus on one part: a highlight at the inner eye corner, on the brow bone or cheekbones.

Pull off the season’s colours with coloured mascara. Try deep blue, deep green, or brown. Keep it very minimal, or try my mink hair lashes

This season, I’m excited to experiment with a powder-less skin finish with high-pigmented metallic eyeshadow. An attractive combination so contrasting yet wearable.

My colour of the season is peach. It’s charming and fresh. 

Pull off a bright and high-defined spring/summer colour look by ensuring your skin foundation has a clean and matte effect. 

Get acquainted with bright and pastel makeup by starting with an orange or peach blusher and a natural, shiny lip colour.

A beauty trend I'm excited to experiment with this season is a matte lemon green colour for eyes, accompanied by a matte peach blusher.

The nude make up is trending this season so keep your blush matte, your eyeshadow metallic, and lips glossy. Achieve a dewy finish with a sheer lip.

Every lady’s makeup essential this spring is translucent pressed powder. You don’t want to wear too much of make up and bring down the shine.

Prepare for a bright pastel colour palette by using tinted moisturiser as a base and under-eye concealer to even the skin tone. Sweep bronzer on the cheekbones and finish with a glossy nude lip.

A beauty trend I wish to try this season is modern-looking cat eyes with cheerful pastel shades.

This season, I’m all about red tones.  It is an emotional colour and represents the first beauty colour on a makeup palette.

My tips to nailing the season’s beauty look is be bold and ‘glow’ for it!

A beauty essential this season is lip treatment or lip conditioner. Since bold lips are trendy, lip care should be a daily skincare regimen.

A surprisingly easy way to pull off colour in spring summer is to play up a moisturised, fresh and glowing complexion. Add a hint of gold shimmer on the upper cheek. 

This lip trend listicle is a tribute to all the pinks and reds of spring 2017.
