Spring Beauty: 10 Launches for the New Season

One of the best things about spring is how much it transforms your skin and beauty routines. With the change in weather and more sunshine on the horizon, it’s the perfect opportunity to introduce playful pops of colour and transition into a lighter, fresh-faced complexion. Here, we run through some of our favourite new season beauty launches – from limited edition summer colour collections to revitalising skincare saviours. 

Upgrade your skincare stash for spring with a new cooling and lifting eye cream from Estée Lauder, or try Kiehl’s  latest addition to their popular face masks.

There’s also new make-up from favourites including Tom Ford, Lancôme and Benefit  to add spring hues and glowing skin to your everyday look. If you’re a total beauty obsessive, treat yourself to something special from the new SS18 make-up collections, or snap up one of the limited edition palettes from the likes of Bobbi Brown, NARS  and Chantecaille.
