1/ Statement Accessories
Spanish designer, Isabel Sanchis knows that wearable spring designs are all about ethereal silhouettes, inviting colours and just the right amount of razzmatazz to command attention.

Make your ensemble pop with statement accessories, like the oversize hunter green flowers seen on the catwalk. It’s an equation that works for weddings, graduations, afternoon tea or any other occasion that may beckon this spring.

2/ Grunge Vamp: The Allure of the Dark Side
Create your own custom blend from claret to eggplant! These sexy lipstick colours are made for nighttime. When doing a bold shade, exfoliate first for smooth lips.

Simply apply a daub of brown sugar mixed with olive oil. Start by lining lips with a pencil in dark crimson or a shade closest to the final lip colour. Ensure that the bow is well defined. Then apply two shades of lipstick straight from the tube beginning with the darker and layering with the lighter. Top with a hint of gloss.

3/ Event Nails That Look Good on Everyone
Yes, the colour may be quintessential spring, but the length and shape are definitely not!

Pick a skin tone shade, square off tips and up the drama with incredible length to really make a statement.
