I couldn’t be more excited for spring – the weather getting nicer, birds chipping in the morning and switching up your wardrobe and makeup to brighter colours. The new Clarins Spring 2018 collection gets you perfectly in the mood for brighter, sunnier days. You guys know that Clarins is one of my all time favourite luxury makeup brands and they’ve absolutely nailed it with this collection once again. I just love the colours that Clarins have brought out for the spring. So, here is a little peek at the new collection, how I wore the products together and which items I feel are this seasons must-haves!
I was most excited to try the new SOS Primer in 01 rose. Clarins‘ new primers are available in six different shades and work on the same principle as a colour wheel where opposite shades cancel each other out. Each primer has a lightweight, oil-free formula and a special anti-pollution complex that helps to protect the skin from environmental aggressors. For this makeup look, I used the shade 01 rose which basically works like an energy cocktail for the skin and the pink pigments revitalise and restore a fresh look. The primer can be worn all-over as a makeup base or applied on certain areas as a targeted corrector. The texture feel extremely fresh, comfortable and blends seamlessly into the skin, creating the perfect base.
The Clarins 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette in 07 lovely rose is definitely another winner for me in this collection. The pigmentation is so beautiful and all shades blend like a dream. This eyeshadow quad features a light pink pearl, a satin coral, a matte mauve pink and a deep plum. I added the matte mauve into the crease and also blended the plum shade through the crease, the satin coral to the lid and the light pearl shade to the inner corner. I absolutely love this colour combination for spring.
Another product you will definitely swoon for is the Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in the shade 08 plum. This colour and finish is exactly what I look for in my lipstick collection. It’s a super pretty berry pink, formulated with shea butter providing a lovely hydrating feeling on the lips. This is such an easy-to-wear lip colour that would look great on anyone.
