Swap...

intricate nail art for beautifully manicured, elegant nails. This seasom’s nail shape is long and oval.

Drop...

glitter and diamanté have had their day, for now anyway, so file yours away for a future season.

Lips

Invest...

in lipstick; matte or glossy, sheer or vivid, this is the season of lipstick.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture in 203

Swap...

dark winter berries for fresh sheers and every shade of pink.

Drop...

lipgloss, it’s still not back. If you like gloss, go for a high-shine lipstick.

Tan

Invest...

in a professional tanning session to pick up the best pro tips – and a must-have mitt to apply.

Swap...

your gradual tanner for a deeper tan – think a week in Barbados instead of a weekend in St Tropez.

L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Pro Spray Dark

Drop...

winter pale skin, pale was never that interesting anyway. It’s all about the luxe 70’s glam tan.

Lashes

Invest...

in a super lengthening mascara for top and bottom lashes and really layer it on for wide-eyed, ‘doll’ eyes.

Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Eyes Mascara

Swap...

pulled out, smudgy ‘cats eye’ and embrace the new Sixties inspired doe-eyed look.

Drop...

soft kohl eyeliner and smudging brush, the feline smoky eye has had its day – for now.

Hair

Invest...

in a high maintainance, hydrating haircare regime; a conditioning mask followed by a nourishing oil.

Swap...

curling tongs for straightening irons, the NEW spring styles are sleek and straight.

ghd Limited Edition Wonderland Styler

Drop...

any styling products that say volumising or texturizing and go for smoothing and straightening.
