Along with a new season outfit haul, possibly the best thing about heading into summer is giving your make-up bag a much-needed update. Right now, we’re all about cleaning out the old, going lighter on skincare formulas and picking out a beauty palette of summery shades to suit sunny days and balmy nights.
Each month we’ll be bringing you an exclusive edit of glossy, beauty must-haves straight from the Pink Shop. For May, we’re recommending five make-up products in our fave new season shades – just add sunnies and an Aperol Spritz.
Laritzy Lip Pencil in Berry Pretty
Make a raspberry pout your new summer signature with this long-wearing lip pencil that stays put. The Laritzy Lip Pencil formula is smooth and creamy, letting you shape, line and fill for vibrant lips all day long.
The Beauty Crop Blush Duo in Papaya Don’t Preach
Nourished with kale, aronia berry, pomegranate and papaya, The Beauty Crop Blush Duo in Papaya Don’t Preach, is a travel-friendly compact that gives a healthy tropical glow on-the-go. A sweep of this coral and peach blush warms up the complexion of all skin tones and if you can’t decide if you love powder or cream blush, no probs – this palette has both.
Hikari Cream Pigment Eyeshadow in Cosmic
Flirty shades of lavender and lilac were over the SS18 runways, plus Pantone dubbed punchy purple the colour of year, so it’s no surprise that this vibrant colour has found its way into our make-up collection, too. For an intense pop of purple on your lids, look to the Hikari Cream Pigment Eyeshadow in Cosmic. It glides on nicely, and gives just the right amount of shimmer for summer.
New CID Cosmetics i-gel in Black
To achieve the ultimate smokey eye this summer, reach for the New CID Cosmetics i-gel in this trio of smouldering shades. With one easy stroke, the waterproof, smudge-proof i-gel eyeliner delivers intense definition to the eyes in three grades of black – granite, graphite or carbon – the perfect inky tones for creating dramatic daytime eyes or a strong, after-hours look.
Lord & Berry Luminizer Highlighter Stick in Moon
So who wants a subtle, luminous sheen to see you into summer? For a glowing complexion, our latest beauty obsession is Lord & Berry’s Luminizer Highlighter Stick in Moon. This soft and silky formula in a gorgeous shade of satin-gold, slides across cheekbones and browbones to emphasise and illuminate features. The result is a look that’s positively radiant.
