4 Spring Beauty Problems SolvedBy Livi Hecht
There is blossom on the trees, the birds are tweeting and the mornings are brighter. That must mean it’s spring right? Wrong. When you live in the UK, seasons merge and you need to be prepared for anything. Make sure you are rocking this season’s trends, whilst ready for every sudden downpour. Let’s talk Spring beauty..
1. The Spring Lip Spring Beauty
Problem: With changing weather, there is a risk of lipsticks drying out your lips. Problem solved, this nourishing balm is full of moisturising ingredients including shea butter. If you want a product that is on colour trend and keeps your lips hydrated, this is the product for you.
Solution: Forget the pale pout this spring, it’s time for bold and beautiful. The Spring 2014 Fashion Week runways were full of orange lipstick and celebrities just can’t get enough of it. Our favourite is Clinique Chubby Stick in Oversized Orange, because it’s bright enough to lift any rainy mood.

2. The Unintentional Blow Dry Spring Beauty
Problem: No matter how calm the weather is in the morning, at some point in the day you are sure to experience an unexpected gush of wind.
Solution: Before you leave the house simply mist this amazing film-hold hairspray by Percy and Reed over your style for flexible and invisible hold for perfect Spring beauty hair.

3. The Post-Tube Look Spring Beauty
Problem: In hot weather makeup tends to misbehave, it slips and slides down your face and by midday you wonder whether there was any point in applying in the first place. Invest in a good primer and your makeup will last all day.
Solution: This lightweight primer smoothes on skin easily and has the added benefit of sun protection, so feel free to venture to a nearby park for lunch knowing you are protected from harmful rays.

4. The Sudden Downpour Spring Beauty
Problem: When there is a risk of a downpour at any minute, you would be foolish to brave it without an umbrella. The problem is, it just doesn’t fit in your cute clutch bag.
Solution: Make sure your mascara stays on your eyelashes and not your face with this waterproof mascara. The high-tech IFX brush evenly coats lashes giving superb definition and separation.
