Instant Glow Clarins Spring Makeup

Yesterday felt like spring was nearly in reaching distance here in Surrey. It may have been chilly for our morning patrol around Weybridge, but the sky was blue and early blossom can be spotted peaking out of hopeful branches. So I decided that now was the right time to start my Spring posts and I’m starting with a good one. 

 Although it is easy to get stuck in a make-up rut if you try and tweet your products at the change of each season you will hopefully keep it fresh and up-to-date, rather than looking back and realising that what might have looked fab in your late teens, might not be doing your current complexion many favours. So hear is what Clarins have to offer for Spring - I hope something catches your eye…

Most seasons Clarins brings out a Limited Edition Eye Palette, and I’m a BIG fan of this 5-Colour version for their Natural Glow Spring Collection (£33), they are just so wearable. The higher shades you can wear alone for an easy pre-work look and then blend with the darker shades to build the glamour. The darkest brown is gorgeous to line the eyes for a softer look than using eye liner.

 I have raved about Clarins Ombre Iridescent eye shadows (£19) before - they are highly pigments so you only need a small amount and hey are so velvety soft, they they glide across your eyelid. I love the Silver Green - an unexpected surprise! Perfect for those grown eyed girls.

 A flush of colour on spring cheeks is a must and this new Rose shade to the Multi-Blush (£18.50) is beautiful.

In the Instant Glow Collection, there has been the addition of four new shades to their Rouge Eclat Age-Defying Lipsticks (£19.50) which help to age-proof your lips by boosting college production, flighting free radicals and moisturising. They do feel like a dream to apply.

The other lip addition to the spring collection is two Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector new shades (£18) which are a gloss alternative. I love the spongy-soft applicator and the Toffee Pink Shimmer is super pretty.

 I have also included in this post a couple of other new additions from Clarins, the Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base (£18) which I basically a primer for your lips, which hydrates and holds on to your lip colour. Finally there has also been the addition of new shades to their Joli Rouge Collection (£19.50) - which I’ve included 3 of here - how gorgeous is the Coral Tulip? A perfect pop of colour for Spring!
