For nails, I've placed aside my berrys suited for autumn, festive glitters and summery corals in favour of two failsafe picks. Essie Fifth Avenue is the perfect all rounder shade, a bright, glossy orange red that's so chic! Essie Eternal Optimist is another everyday pick, a creamy spiced tea rose and pretty pink - it's so flattering on! This rosy pick gels well with Spring, brightens up gloomy, rainy days and adds a delicate, feminine twist to an icy winter's morning.
A helping hand towards a dewy, radiant complexion never goes amiss! The Nars Radiance Primer uses pearlescent peach pink pigments along with added skincare benefits to boost vitality, making dull lacklustre skin a thing of the past. Smoothed over the skin, it makes a great base for make up or dotted on the high points before make up - cheekbones, brow bone and the bridge of your nose, it helps to perk up tired skin!
For cheeks, the cult Nars Orgasm, a warm pink blusher with a divine golden sheen helps to impart a wash of radiance and warmth to the skin, brightening up the complexion all year round. The texture is unreal - buttery soft, blendable and it's so saturated - a staple in my make up bag!
Dusted over the cheekbones, lightly on the temples and down the nose, theBalm Mary Lou Highlighter emits a gorgeous glow. This shimmery, champagne highlighter gives a flawless finish and lasts all day!
For eyes, I find that even glittery picks can work all year round, through sunshine or showers! I normally reach for MAC Honeylust, a versatile peachy bronze pick with a hint of sparkle. It pairs well with bright lips for spring, vampy lips for winter and muted tones too!
Lastly for an everyday lip, MAC Mehr is the one. This flattering mauve pink lipstick compliments most looks, making it my top pick and year-round shade. The slight berry tone means that it works through autumn and winter, it pairs well with (my signature everyday) liquid liner flick and dewy skin too!
