Since winter doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon, it’s time to start getting into a warmer state of mind by adding a little colour to your look.
Draw attention your pout with a pop of a brilliant shade – think bright reds, pinks and corals. To really make your lips stand out, avoid using too much colour on your eyes so all focus goes to the bold shade on your lips.

If the runway looks for SS 2013 were any indication, spring is a time to add a little drama to your eyes. Take a cue from Carly Rae Jepsen and add some blue to your lids – it’s perfect for giving eyes a boost and will make any eye colour pop. Swipe a pale blue shade across your eyelids or add a line of navy under your lower lash line to make your eyes really stand out.
