It’s a close call, but we think spring might be our favourite time of year. As we shed our heavy coats, swap boots for flats and embrace spring’s newest trends, we’re looking to our makeup bags to find inspiration for a fresh season.

Spring has always been bright and breezy – the days are lighter, the sun shines more and blossoming blooms bring pops of colour. So why not add some spring cheer to your beauty look? Here are our favourite makeup trends for Spring 2015, given a little French flair…

Spring Beauty, French-Style

Pastel eyes

Pastel shades are key for your wardrobe this season, but they look just as good in beauty as they do in style! A pretty powder blue, mint green or subtle lilac blended into your eyelid will give a soft, fresh look.

Glowing skin

Nothing says ‘spring’ quite like gorgeously glowy skin. Parisians famously favour a paired-down look when it comes to makeup, and spring is the perfect time of year to go for a lighter base. Choose a tinted moisturiser over your usual foundation, and ramp up the glow even more with a creamy highlighter.

Petal lips

From peachy pink tulips to orangey-red poppies, we’re turning to florals to inspire our spring lip look. French women love a bold lipstick but for spring, blot with a tissue to create a casual ‘stained’ look that’s oh-so laidback.

Bushy brows

Newsflash – the perfectly-arched brow is out. Brows are less defined and more natural, so no need to worry about those stray hairs. Create shape with a brow pencil and brush through to keep things soft, then set with a little brow gel.
