Pretty Easter Look

The Look:
This Easter the look that will really demand attention is super glowing, healthy skin and fresh, crisp fashion. You will look like you've walked straight off the catwalk and into that fabulous Easter Egg hunt you have planned with the family or that Easter party you've circled on the calendar. To whatever event you choose to attend this simple look can be easily transformed from day to night and capture that well-deserved attention.

The Face:

The absolute key to gorgeous glowing skin is to keep it simple. Get a barely there look by putting aside those matte foundations and going for lighter formulas like tinted moisturisers and BB creams. They’ll moisturise your skin and provide light, even coverage and are an amazing base to work with on any look. I use the Garnier BB Cream (£6.66) as its really lightweight but has really beautifully buildable colour that suits a variety of skin types and easily fits in my makeup bag!  

The Contour and Colour:

Hollow out those cheekbones with a touch of your favourite bronzer, circle those cheeks with a deep peach blusher and finish with a highlighter to the cupids bow and to just above your blusher. Clinique’s cheek pop in the colour Peach Pop (£16.50) is a very pretty, fun colour and will suit a wide variety of skin tones and is definitely a versatile Easter colour. To really amp it up use the same blush lightly in the crease of the eye and coat those lashes in your favourite black mascara to make sure your golden look really captures attention.

To transform this look from day to night, accentuate the eyes with a deep mauve shadow, a sultry feline flick and lashings of the blackest mascara you can find. I have fallen in love with the Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara recently, it's just amazing!!!! Check out my previous Mascara Mayhem post for reviews on a range of mascaras :)

*Tip* To create the perfect flick for your eye shape look directly into a mirror, draw a small dot where you want the flick to finish and then follow you eye shape with the liner all the way to the dot. Do this on both eyes to create a professional liner look at any time.

 The Outfit:
For the perfect Easter outfit combine those traditional floral Easter prints with modern tailoring to create that perfect Easter outfit. If you’re looking for something simple to throw on try this Oriental Print Tube dress from Oasis.

At £40 not only is it affordable it can easily be worn to work with a fitted blazer, worn to an Easter day out with a pretty light cardigan or for an Easter date night with some coral or teal high heels to really show off those pins! It will flatter any figure due to the knotted waist and as it’s made of a light material you won’t overheat on those warmer days out running after the family.

Most of all this Easter have fun, keep it simple and enjoy!
