I’ve tried my best to resist the lure of springtime pastels, but over recent weeks I’ve weakened with the odd pop of mint, peach and pink filtering through into my rotation. First it was a seafoam slick on the nails, then paired with my rediscovery of Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbera – just the right shade and texture for blusher-phobes like myself – I finally caved and collected an edit of products perfect for the coming months spanning the face, cheeks, lips, eyes and nails categories. Oh yer, it’s extensive. But trust me my picks are not just photogenic they also look pretty darn good dusted, swept and buffed on.

To see my shades of spring along with the essay-length description box select to ‘Watch on Youtube’. You can try to fight it, but darn those pastels have got some pull.
