With a key event in the calendar, this is prime time for video call celebrations and of course photo opportunities. Bring your makeup and your Instagram feed back to life this Easter with some of the top trends on social media right now, popular with influencers and celebrities including Love Island's Ellie Brown.
We've picked out some of the hottest trends this April, giving you all the detail you need to get the look from the comfort of your own home (whilst stuffing your face with Easter Eggs of course).
Vibrant, bold eye colours are in. This spring time it's not about holding back with your colour but going light, bright and bold with your liner or eye shadow to create a colourful but dramatic day or nighttime look.
Influencer and beauty queen Ellie Jarrett opts for a vibrant coral blue to add drama to her glowing look using the Diego Dalla Palma Eyeliner in shade 52 Mediterraneo Kajal. To get the look, pencil out your wing tip between the outer corner of the eye and the end of the eyebrow. Shade across the whole lid as close to the waterline as you can and then add as much height to your liner as desired for either a subtle stroke of colour or go brave with a bolder, thicker line.
