Winter To Spring, Transitional Beauty

Despite the gloomy days, I've been craving for fresher beauty picks for the slow transition into spring. With snow flurries one day and a hint of spring in the air the next, I've been torn between reaching for berry tones or corals! As the weather marches on in a rather haphazard method, I've settled on a few faves and pulled out some new picks to get me though these ever changing days!

A winter full of tucking my hair into knitted scarves in a desperate attempt to save it from the harsh gales has left my tresses tired, tangled - a dry mess. I often find hair masks quite tricky to work into my daily routine, but the Phyto PhytoKeratine Ultra-Reparing Mask* is a dream! Simply run this nourishing treatment thorough the ends of your hair, massaging in gently before rinsing away well - it's so easy to pop on whilst in the shower and works in just a few minutes! It contains two types of hyaluronic acid and is a saviour for my parched hair - I will have swishy, manageable hair for spring!

For skin, I've retained the rich creams for now (I'm not quite ready to switch to lighter creams just yet!) and added the addition of a silky oil to up my skincare game. I simply mix a couple of drops of the dreamy Oskia Restoration Oil* into my day or night moisturiser for an added hydration boost. Designed to even out skintone, improve elasticity and restore vitality, this divine oil really does cover it all! Alongside this and before applying make up, I've been using the Nars Radiance Primer to provide me with a dewy glow. This instantly perks up my dull winter skin with pearlescent peach pink pigments and along with SPF 35, it also contains plant extract to boost vitality too!

For make up, I've fallen for a new addition to my stash Nars Deep Throat, a perky peach blusher that's ideal for radiant, fresh skin. For my eyes, I adore the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise in Jean. A vitamin E enriched, heavenly pick, this shimmery champagne creamy eyeshadow blends effortlessly and brightens up the eye area with it's light reflecting pigments!
Finally, on my lips, I've settled for another gorgeous Charlotte Tilbury find, the Kissing Lipstick in Coachella Coral - a wearable coral pink. I'm all about peachy, dewy make up right now!

Lastly, on my nails I've opted for Essie Maximilian-Strasse Her, a pretty muted grey/blue with a creamy, lasting formula. My go-to when I'm not sure what to wear, it's such a flattering hue!
