Spring essentials: Think sweet pastels and romantic hues

Think that pastel has seen the last of its heyday? Think again. The perfect antidote to the more sombre hues of winter, Lancôme’s Spring collection will soon be here to brighten your New Year beauty haul with pops of soft yellow and sweet blush. Here are your fresh Spring essentials and tips on how to wear them by Lancôme Makeup Creative Director, Lisa Eldridge:


My Parisian Pastels, RM200

Housed in a whimsical little metallic case, this innovative cheek and eye palette consists of nine beautiful, shimmery pastel cubes. Use a single shade if you wish, or go with a combination for a graduated pastel effect—revel in the infinite options to mix and match to your heart’s content. 

Expert tip: For the face, sweep a flat blush or kabuki across a horizontal row to take up a blend of corrective, healthy glow or illuminating colours. For the eyes, pick up a cube and apply the colour directly to the lid, pressing down more or less firmly to create the desired intensity and shimmer effect.


My Parisian Blush, RM145

Lancôme continues to entice your inner child with this playful little blush and its nostalgic Play-doh texture. Available in two zesty shades—Corail de Ville and Rose Haussmann—this beauty gem will enliven your cheeks with fresh radiance.

Expert tip: One product, multiple ways; use a beautifying hint of Lip Lover Gloss at the centre of the lips over the same tone of Rouge In Love. For a delectable vinyl effect, apply it alone in a generous layer for plump and simply irresistible lips.


Hypnôse Palette, RM160

Whether you’re going for a soft, romantic look or bolder, more sensual effects, the Hypnôse Palette has just the colours you need to highlight your glorious peepers. It features four warm, graduated tones and a lovely, zesty shade of orange.   

The Lancôme Spring Collection will be available at all Lancôme counters nationwide from 11 January 2016 onwards.
