The 5 Minute Spring Face

A fresh Spring look that takes 5 minutes

Get ready for Spring in five minutes with only four key products that I use. This look is great for when you don't have much time but want to look really fresh and natural. The colours I have used will go great with the new pastel colours that are out and suit both blonde, red and brunette hair tones. I showed you this look at 5am when I had to be out the door in 15 minutes. If a beauty addict like me can whizz through it so can you!

1. The Base
After cleansing, toning and moisturising, I apply a quick dab of concealer and eyebrow pencil to line my brows ready for my base. If you prefer a heavier base and mascara then you can apply these at this stage.

Then I apply FAMOUS by Sue Moxley Face Powder in shade 3- Sandy Beige with the sponge you get with the powder. Only £4.99 so a real bargain for a high quality product. The powder is so smooth and conditioning that I use it as an all in one base as it has fantastic coverage without being heavy. The colour Sandy Beige is great for golden skin tones like mine or if you want to take the redness out.

2. The Contouring
Next you want to take a medium sized blusher brush and sculpt your face with a bronzer that is rich in shimmery particles and looks fresh.

I use Accessorize Baked Bronzer Duo in Bali/shade 7. Only £5! One side has beautiful golden
flecks of rich blusher powder and the other half has a deep intense, almost burnt orange bronzer with flecks of pearl white and golds. Sculpt your face with the light and dark shades in the pot. I use the blusher where the sun would hit me naturally- temples, cheekbones and nose.

3. The Healthy Highlights
Clever highlighting will wake you up in no time and make your face look fresh. I use a fantastic Shimmer Brick from FAMOUS by Sue Moxley £7 in PINK shade. It rivals it's famous lookalike, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose shade, which at £28 is very steep. This great FAMOUS brick has many uses and I like to use it on a final make-up application. Great for when you have a hangover, feel run-down or just want to cheat that glow.

Use a smaller, but still long blusher brush to sweep the particles together on the apples of your cheeks. (See above left) The, taking a flat eyeshadow brush sweep the lightest shimmer shade in the brick over your brown bones to make your eyes pop.

4. The Pink Pout
I use No 7 Perfect Stay Lipstick in Mischief £10. It is moisturising and lasts ages. This colour is a very 80s frosty pink colour that will pick up the shimmers from your highlighted face.

Now you are ready for Spring!
