Miscellaneous Monday: Top 7 Beauty Picks for Spring

Miscellaneous Monday: Top 7 Beauty Picks for Spring by westweddings featuring L’Occitane

1: Flora, by Gucci
There’s a reason why we love Spring flowers – they encapsulate not only beauty, but freshness and an effortless simplicity. Gucci has translated that into a gorgeous scent with top notes of citrus mandarin accords and peony, a heart of rose and osmanthus flower, and base notes of pink pepper and sandalwood. (£53 at John Lewis)
2: Pure Color Cello Shots, by Estee Lauder
These light gel-based collection contains everything you need for colour – from cheek stains to lipsticks and lip glosses. They’ll give you a bright, natural look without being heavy or over-the-top. Perfect for a Spring wedding. (£24 at Estee Lauder)
3: Shea Butter Hand Cream, by L’Occitane
This is one of our blog editor’s favourite hand creams bar none. A little bit truly goes a long way and this hand cream will leave you feeling moisturised and smooth all day. Ingredients include 20% shea butter, accompanied with a honey and sweet almond extract which will help lock in moisture. This will not only last you though the wedding, but the honeymoon and beyond! (£8 at John Lewis)
4: African Violet & Pink Crush Nail Lacquer, by Tom Ford
These are two of our favourite shades of nail varnish this Spring. African Violet is bold, but with the playfulness of Spring. Pink Crush is that light, sheer tone that we adore – giving an elegant and polished, understated look. Tom Ford, you’ve done it again. (£20 at Nordstrom)
5: Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, by Liz Earle
This cleanser is a face’s answer to prayer after a wedding. Its thick creamy texture will remove all hints of dirt and grime from skin – even removing stubborn makeup. Follow on with Liz Earle’s Instant Boost Skin Tonic and a light moisturiser and you’ll be feeling like a new woman. (£14.75 at John Lewis)
6: Photoready Skinlights, by Revlon
We love this facial illuminator from Revlon – and in a day that largely consists of posing in photographs, what better than a product that will make us look better in photographs? This illuminator will give you a natural radiance and glow that will last all day. It can be worn on its own, or mixed with foundation or primer for a dewy finish, or even used after make-up as a highlighter. (£11.99 at Boots)
7: Instant Smooth Primer, by Clarins
Looking perfect for your big day starts with the right foundation – and we particularly like this primer by Clarins. Unlike some other primers, its very light and smooth and easy to apply. And, as with our favourite products, a little bit goes a long way, so one tub will last you most of a year! (£26 at John Lewis)
