How to Wake Up and Look Lovely

With April just around the corner, it is great to switch up your skincare and makeup routines and introduce some new products into the mix to help you wake up pretty. Lighter products such as BB Creams, Highlighters and Lip Balms are Spring’s heroes, and can transform your skin from dull to radiant in a flash. Of course, your skincare routine is just as important when it comes to waking up your skin. Introducing products enriched with plenty of vitamins will ensure your skin stays hydrated and healthy, and most of all, bright.

Skincare Specialist

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
