The weather’s improved so it’s finally starting to feel like spring! We’ve already given our wardrobe a spring/summer update so now we’re keen to revamp our everyday make-up look. This season, we’re all about soft pastel hues, embracing our freckles and subtle glows.

Why stick to one sherbet shade when you could pile on four? The secret to making this work is keeping the rest of your make-up minimal – think brushed up brows, a neutral lip and subtle glowing skin.
Pretty Little Liar’s star, Shay Mitchell, successfully pulls off a pink hat-trick via her eyes, lips and earrings. To stop it veering into Katie Price territory, do like Shay by mixing up the shades of pink and pairing with lashings of jet-black mascara.
The combination of beachy waves, lightly bronzed skin and a scattering of freckles creates the ultimate Californian surfer girl look! Keep your lips and eyes bare, this look is all about the skin with a particular focus on freckles – embrace yours or follow Hung’s lead by creating some faux ones with an eyeliner pencil.
The apples of your cheeks aren’t the only place that can glow! Add a two-tone shimmer to the inner corners of your eyes for a fresh take on eyeshadow – place the bronze shade below eyebrows for a natural highlight.
For that fresh-from-a-countryside-walk flush, opt for a liquid blusher to create a more natural looking cheek tint – nobody will know that it’s from a tube and you haven’t actually been on a morning stroll.
