The perfect spring make-up

When it comes to picking colours that work with your skin tone, it is hard to beat Bobbi Brown. So, I was delighted to discover her new Blush Duos (£29.50), part of the new Malibu Nudes Collection.

Bobbi Brown Blush Duo Tawny and Peony

There is nothing like a quick sweep of blusher to revive a dull and tired complexion. It is the one make-up item I would never leave the house without.

I plumped for the Tawny and Peony combination to create a healthy glow that looked as if I had been for a walk in the park on a sunny day.

There are four combinations so you should find one that matches your natural flush. To achieve Bobbi’s “just pinched” cheeks look, dust the softer hue on to your cheeks and apply the brighter shade on to the apples to give you a pop of colour.

I also like the Art Sticks (£20) which give your lips a matte finish which is long-lasting yet also feels creamy. If, like me, you like a nude mouth, take Bobbi’s tip and pick one that is a shade or two darker than your own lip colour. If you prefer more oomph, try the two new shades, Electric Coral and Punch, a pretty pink. 

Add a coat of mascara and you are ready to go.
