Now I’ve seen daffodils with my own eyes, I’m convinced fully that it’s spring! Which means, in make up terms, out with the dark jewel shades and in with the lighter, brighter and infinitely more flattering pinks, peaches and nudes. I love these blushes from the Shu Uemura Egerie collection; they’re fresh, silky and youthful and wake up the complexion far more than a splash of cold water ever could. You might want to try the switch from foundation to tinted moisturiser to make these blushes look natural and seamless over a fresh base although if you aren’t ready to quite make that leap, they look just as pretty over a heavier base.
