After a long winter , it’s finally time to play in the sun and your spring beauty routine is calling for a much-needed boost. Former Lise Watier Beauty Counter Manager and current Pharmaprix Beauty Advisor, Catherine Jetté, explains the key to spring is all about a radiant complexion and putting the accent on your lips, and cheeks. Read on to check out her product picks for the new season!
Spring is colorful, but not too bright, Jetté says, because we don’t yet have the sun-kissed glow to pull off bright colours. Instead, you will want to reach for matte pastel colors and peachy tones. If you’re ready to say goodbye to your grey complexion and get your own spring glow, read on for a few of Jetté’s product suggestions to kick up your spring 2014 beauty routine:
Clarins Golden Glow Booster
Getting a sun-kissed glow for Spring can be tricky. Fortunately, Clarins’ new Golden Glow Booster is a great solution to warming up your complexion, without getting the dreaded fake tan look. Just add 3 drops of it to your usual moisturizer to help your complexion look more radiant.
Lise Watier Cosmetics Libertine Blush
Blush is another important component to help liven up your skin, Jetté explains. For spring 2014, she suggests Lise watier’s blush in Libertine. She says that it has a peachy undertone so it will further help create the illusion of a sun-kissed glow.
Shiseido Lacquer Rouge
The “it” word in the lip department for spring 2014 is “lacquer,” according to Jetté. It has the deep-pigmentation of a lipstick, but the smooth feeling of a lip gloss, minus the sticky (that means your hair won’t get stuck in your lip gloss on a windy day). Jetté suggests Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in color Or303 for spring because of its peachy-pink hue.
Lise Watier Magic Lip Colour Enhancer
If you’re interested in a more natural lip colour, Lise Watier’s Magic Lip Colour Enhancer is an interesting new product that enhances the natural colour of your lips. This is also a great way to find the perfect shade of pink for your complexion, if you’re looking for a more natural and easy-going look.
Dior Eyeshadow Palette Trianon Edition
Though the focus for your everyday spring beauty routine should be your lips and cheeks, this 5 colour eyeshadow palette by Dior is a great combination of soft matte shades for just a little accentuation around the eyes for a night out. These flowery pastels are playful, yet soft and feminine.
