Spring make-up and hair

W7 has always been a great go-to brand for those in the know and is one of the first to mimic its higher priced dupe, Benefit. The feather light Genius foundation is super smooth to the touch and applies as a liquid water-light buildable to medium coverage. Dries to a powder finish so apply in layers, slowly. This gives a lovely lightweight glow, perfect for those who don’t want a heavy foundation. The very vegan lipstick in Righteous Red is stunning, glossy gorgeous bright red, perfect for bouncing into spring with confidence.


The coral Candy Blush is a cute compact case with a helpful little mirror inside and gives a sweep of natural cheery spring colour to the cheeks – apply to cheek bones and a touch on the temples, in gentle light stokes. FIND Beauty is an impressive brand which delivers on product and packaging. The Sunkissed Radiance Duo Bundle (Bronzer and Blush) is a lovely way to bring some easy sunshine glow to your complexion. The products are grown up and non-shimmery which we love, as well as being packaged in a solid simple black with a generous mirror. FIND Beauty is another one to watch in terms of rivalling much higher priced products. £13.25
