The Cleanser

The Daily Cleansing Protocol, £100 | Victoria Beckham Beauty

Nothing says spring like a good cleanser, which might explain why I squealed with delight when Victoria Beckham Beauty’s latest launch – a cleansing duo – landed on my desk. The Daily Cleansing Protocol isn’t cheap, but it is really good. The first step – the Daily Oil Cleanser – glides on and emulsifies to a silky milk. What I especially love about this is that for an oil, it doesn’t feel too oily. That might sound strange, but it means it doesn’t slip between your fingers when you pump it out or drip off your face as you’re working it in. It also means that I think anyone who’s wary of using an oil cleanser will like it. The second step is the Daily Lactic Acid Gel Cleanser, which gently sloughs away dead skin cells and leaves skin feeling like it’s had a mini facial. Apart from making my skin feel good, there’s something so gorgeous about this pair. The textures are a pleasure to use at the end of a long day and, let’s face it, they look swish too.

The Mascara

Kitten Lash Mascara, £29 | Lisa Eldridge

The bar is set high for mascaras at the moment, but I have been well and truly blown away by Lisa Eldridge’s Kitten Eyes Mascara. The brush is, in my opinion, perfect – not too clumpy, not too thin, and just a gentle curve that follows the contour of your lash line. As for the formula, Lisa has managed to create a mascara that is perfect from first use (I say this because I always prefer mascaras once they’ve been opened about a month and the formula is less gunky because it’s had a chance to settle). It gives fanned-out, fluttery lashes fast, making it the perfect everyday mascara. I defy you not to love it too.

The Lipsticks

Lip Velvet, £25 | Anastasia Beverly Hills

Lots of recent lip launches has meant lots of road testing. Two that I think are excellent are Merit’s Signature Lipstick and Anastasia Beverly Hills’s Lip Velvets. Merit is a brand I rate anyway for its incredible textures and second-skin finishes. What I love most about these lipsticks is that, despite being matte, they’re not remotely drying. Somehow, they manage to deliver a flat matte finish that feels as soft and cushioning on the lips as a satin formula. I apply the colour straight from the bullet and blur the edges with my fingers. If you like a proper suede matte finish, I’ve been loving Anastasia Beverly Hills’s Lip Velvets too. The shade selection is just nudes but don’t let that put you off as there are lots of undertone options to suit everyone. My favourite is ‘Pure Hollywood’ with its slightly cool lilac undertone.

The Foundation

Skin Rewind Complexion Stick, £48 | ILIA Beauty

I have never been much of a stick foundation fan, finding them too chalky and difficult to blend, but I clearly hadn’t tried the ILIA Skin Rewind Complexion Stick. It’s hard to pinpoint just what makes this formula so good (it could be the ceramide-peptide complex or the kelp extract) but all I can say is that it goes on like a dream, blends without any effort and, despite looking and feeling featherlight, provides truly excellent coverage. Because it’s designed to be your skincare, concealer and foundation in one, it’s very buildable, but unlike most complexion products, the more you apply the better things look.

The Nail Design

Brighton Rock Hema-Free Paint, £19.14 | The Gel Bottle

As I write this, I’m sporting a floral design on my nails courtesy of the very talented Becky Wood, a manicurist who works with The Gel Bottle. The dainty daisy design is made up of the prettiest pastel shades of pink, purple and green, and has brought me joy every time I catch a glimpse of my fingertips. For my next set, I’m tempted to go full throttle into spring with ‘Brighton Rock’, a pastel pistachio that The Gel Bottle founder Daisy Kalnina predicts will be big this season. If you don’t want to do a block colour, coloured tips are a great way to experiment with shades. I recommend a base layer of Dolly (the perfect pale pink with a hint of milky white) and then whatever colour (or colours) you fancy for tips.

The Blusher

Sunset Blush, £27 | Vieve

I’ve always felt that a good blusher is the difference between looking drab and looking dazzling, which is why I am thankful to have recently discovered the latest shade in Vieve’s excellent Sunset Blush collection. Rosa is a beautiful, fresh coral colour capable of lifting even the wintriest of complexions. It’s a shade that will suit absolutely everyone. As with every formula that founder Jamie Genevieve touches, it’s silky, sheer and buildable so you can create exactly the level of flush you’re after. I like to wear it higher than usual, along the tops of my cheekbones (as opposed to the apples of my cheeks) to really wake up my face.
