1. Yves Saint Laurent, Manicure Couture no.8 (£28 each)
We adore these gorgeous new nail lacquers. Catwalk-inspired colours, shades of juicy tangerine and pastel pink channel the warm of spring with a burst of vibrant colour. Lush.
2. Origins, No Puffery Cooling Mask for Puffy Eyes (£19)
Keep eyes bright and dazzling this spring with Origins cooling gel. It’s perfect for banishing sore, tired and puffy eyes to keep you look fresh-faced. For an extra-relaxing treatment, store it in the fridge and intensify the cooling sensation after a big night out.
3. Jo Malone, English Pear & Freesia Cologne (£36)
New and exclusive from Jo Malone, this fresh and feminine fragrance is skin-sweet and soft-smelling with notes of amber and patchouli. Scents of pear and freesia conjure up images of perfect English gardens in springtime.
4. Clinique, Age Defence BB Cream with SPF15 (£25)
Clinique’s take on the BB cream is a winner. A fabulous mix of light coverage and antioxidants, the cream is ideal as a make-up base and its formula contains SPF for those sunny spring days.
5. Bare Minerals, Original SPF15 Foundation (£24)
Heavy foundation is a definite spring no-no. Keep coverage light with Bare Minerals super-blendable, light-weight mineral foundation formula for a fresh-faced look that stays put all day long.6. Yves Saint Laurent, Touche Éclat (£24.50)
Every woman’s secret weapon, Yves Saint Laurent’s award winning corrector pen magically conceals shadows and blemishes, adding a touch of radiance that leaves the complexion glowing. Perfect for under-eye circles and for use as a highlighter for cheek and brow bones. Now available in seven shades.
7. Figs & Rouge, Lip Balm (£3.99)
These elegant balms are 100% organic and petroleum free. Pure and natural, they give lips an intense moisture boost and smell divine. We love Rambling Rose for spring.
8. Bobbi Brown, Blush (£18)
A good blush is your number one essential spring make-up must-have. A sweep of rosy pink across the cheekbones lifts the complexion and gives skin a fresh-faced flush that whispers English rose.
9. Shu Uemura, Markus Lupfer Limited Edition Eyelash Curler (£20)
10. Kérastase, Reflection (from £15.30)
Pretty in pink, this hair-care range is perfect for coloured hair. With shampoo, conditioner, masks and styling products, your colour stays rich and natural with mirror-shine and lustre.
