A Simple Way To Update Your Everyday Make-Up For SS15

When something becomes part of a daily routine, it’s very easy to lose your sense of spontaneity. Is there any real point in trying Monday’s Vinyasa yoga class when Friday’s Pilates tutor knows exactly what moves will relive the tension in your back?

It’s just as easy to fall into this kind of rut when it comes to beauty. At some point, we’ve all been guilty of selecting the same combination of products for weeks and months on end. And before we know it, it’s been years since we even start thinking about trying a different base, blusher and highlighter.

Now that the transition from spring to summer is well underway, there’s never been a better time to embrace change. Not sure where to start? We suggest swapping your trademark bronze shadow and black or dark brown eyeliner combination for a barely-there make-up look. Not only is it effortlessly elegant, it’s extremely easy to achieve and was championed by designers including Alberta Ferretti and Gucci at global fashion weeks.

Flawless skin is the key to this trend so begin by gently dotting Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base on your chin, nose, cheeks and forehead. The liquid, which will give your face a fresh and luminous finish, can mixed with foundation, smoothed on after day cream or used alone.

Next, use Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector to give your mouth a naturally glossy sheen. A slick of the sweet-tasting melting gel – available in shades from rose to coral – will also make your pout appear plumper and perfectly shaped. Now your skin is radiant and your lips have an ever so subtle pop of colour, sweep Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara brush through your lashes. Just one coat of the volumising and lengthening formula will add an edge to your look.
