Clarins Spring 2013

The model image for Clarins' spring collection says it all, this is a collection of elegant, chic products to enhance a woman's natural beauty.

Central to the look is the gorgeous pink lip, which is created with the Rouge Eclat Lipstick in True Aubergine (€23). These new satin-finish, age-defying range of lipsticks are incredibly moisturising thanks to a combination of plant waxes including mimosa, jojoba and sunflower. There are 15 shades to choose from, ranging from neutral nudes to pinks and corals.

To create a velvety smooth complexion, the Mineral Loose Powder (€38) is best used swept over foundation to set your makeup and make it last all day. I have been using the palest shade particularly on the T-zone to mattify and reduce the appearance of pores.

The Face and Blush powder (€37) is another winner, consisting of a trio of shades to impart a healthy glow onto skin.

For eyes there is the Eye Quartet Mineral Palette (€40), a gorgeous selection of shadows in intense plum, shimmery grey, deep black and subtle pearl. I have found the shades really versatile, and can be combined in various ways to suit day and night.
