3 Fresh Spring Makeup Looks To Try This April
Update your makeup routine with these easy to follow spring beauty looks
The new season has finally started to arrive and that can only mean one thing - it’s time to say goodbye to the matte finishes and heavy formulas of winter and hello to dewy spring makeup. Think lightweight products, gorgeous glowing skin and sheer washes of colours that are flattering without being too strong. Need some inspiration? Here are three of our favourite spring makeup looks.
For a flattering everyday spring makeup look, start by applying the award-winning Code8 Radiate Beauty Balm from the centre of your face outwards using your fingers. This will ensure this easy-to-blend product sinks into your skin and creates a velvety finish. This BB cream has been created using Knead Technology and is infused with Pectin, Argan Seed Oil and SPF 15. It nourishes while also protecting your skin from both the sun and environmental aggressors.
Follow it up with the Code8 Blush Palette. Swirl a fluffy brush into all three colours before applying it to the apples of your cheeks. The silky, lightweight formula blends easily for a youthful glow that’s extremely natural, and the three can also each be used as individual eyeshadows too. Finish up the look with the Code8 AM/PM Tinted Lip Balm in Chameleon. The balm is PH reactive so once you glide it over your lips it will start to turn them a pretty rosy colour, while also keeping them healthy-looking and hydrated. And there you have it, a quick and easy natural spring makeup routine.
New Season Glow
If you want to look like you’ve been kissed by the sun this spring, reach for the Code8 Bronze Summer Glow Powder straight after applying your base. Take a powder brush and swirl it into the pan, before buffing the bronzer into all the areas of your face that naturally catch the sun - your forehead, your nose, your temples and of course, the high points of your cheeks. You can even use a small fluffy brush or your finger and apply this to your eyelids too, for a natural eyeshadow look. This finely milled powder is buildable so you can add more to achieve your desired level of tan, for a truly natural spring makeup look.
Once you are glowing and bronzed, reach for the Code8 Blush to complete the look. This highly pigmented blusher is made using revolutionary Knead Technology, and when applied on the apple of the cheeks, the combination of its three shades will further enhance that naturally flushed look. Perfect if you want to look like you’ve had fun in the sun this spring.
A Pop Of Spring Colour
Bright spring makeup is always a good idea, so if you want to experiment with new shades this season, start with the Code8 5Secs Express Lip & Cheek Colour. You can apply it straight from the crayon onto your lips for intense hydration and a subtle tint. Alternatively, you can use it on your cheeks. Just apply directly or with your finger and gently blend outwards along the cheekbone. You could even take a small fluffy brush or your fingers and apply this glossy tint to your eyelids, for a unique take on the wet eyeshadow look. There are three universally flattering shades to choose from, so simply pick the one that best matches your spring outfit.
To complete the beauty look, take the Code 8 Glaze Universal Lip Gloss in the peachy nude shade Spyglass and apply it all over your pout for a plumping finishing touch. The peptide-enriched formula makes lips look smoother, firmer and more defined while also stimulating natural collagen production. Apply it over any of the 5Secs Express Lip & Cheek Colours for an incredible 3D effect that will have your pout looking perfect for spring.
By now you should have plenty of spring makeup inspiration. All that’s left to do is start experimenting!
