It’s all about the nudes and pinks and peaches this SS17. Time to shake out that sticky old makeup bag, wash those brushes and freshen your look. Some of our fave new products…
2-in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer £25
A 2-in-1 liquid foundation and concealer. Smooth on as a foundation or spot- apply like a concealer. This formula covers everything but feels really light. We like ‘Oat’ from the new range.
Limited Edition Illuminator, £29.99
These concentrated shimmer drops allow you to customise any product; add them to your foundation, primer, moisturiser, or use them on their own for a super highlighted golden glow.
Limited Edition Face Contouring Palette & Brush £36
Loving this – three shades tailored to suit all skin tones. Perfect contouring with a matte beige to highlight and illuminate, bronze to add depth and rose to add a pop of colour.
Polished Nudes 4-piece Patent Shine 10X™ £24
We’ve been playing about with these, mixing up the colours on each hand like a sort of nudey rainbow.
Shades of Nude £20 – Oxford Street Exclusive
Made with a beautiful blend of vegan wax and a trio of Kalahari melon, caster and jojoba oils to keep your lips perfectly moisturised. Simply use a lip brush to mix the colours till you find the perfect shade.
Generation Nude – prices from £14-£18
We couldn’t pick our favourites out of this new collection – a huge range of nude-range lip products from liners to gloss. Fabulous nudes for days
LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eyeshadow £42 Codes Subtils (Limited Edition)
This is perfect; shimmering shades of rosy peach, platinum-bronze taupe, warm pewter and bronzed mid-brown. For subtle day makeup and more sophisticated evening looks alike.
Matte lip in Jerry: A warm peach £33
This iconic brand has a range of new items that we love, but our fave is this matte lippy. Inspired by the ever-glamorous Jerry Hall it’s a gorgeous warm peach. Yum. Available Harrods, Harvey Nicks, Hoopers Tunbridge Wells
Brush & Sponge Solid Soap £12.86
If you’re going for a spring clean you really need to sort out your brushes! We love this easy to use soap from Blank Canvas.
Matte Multiple £25
If there’s something everyone should have in their makeup bag it’s one of these. Use it for anything – contouring, lips, cheeks, whatever. Many shades, choose wisely
True Colour Nourishing Lipstick in Rose Revival £8
The Avon True Colour Supreme Nourishing Lipstick is the first all-in-one lipstick that combines Avon’s True Colour lipstick with the nourishing properties of a balm. From Avon online.
B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Priming Spray £23.50
Not just any old primer – this handy spritz is packed with Vitamin B6 which is great for your skin. Keeps makeup fresh in the heat too.
Gel Pencil Eyeliner £9.50
New Gel Pencil Eyeliner EX from cult Japanese beauty brand DHC. Loving this rich brown as an alternative to black with nude colour palettes
Lavender Blossom Shower Gel £8 and Body Milk £10
We just love the smell of lavender. That is all. Launched in Feb 17 you can find this at M&S
