Beauty’s spring summer refresh
BEAUTY4 апреля 2023
Lighter, brighter days call for make-up and hair styling to match. Tap into this season’s beauty trends with insights from make-up artist Dani Rull – the creative force behind our recent shoot.
‘No makeup’ make up

Influenced by the balletcore aesthetic, spring/summer 2024 beauty is all about a radiant yet subtly luminous complexion. Whether you choose a subtle tint for a barely-there base or opt for a light foundation, the goal is to let your innate beauty shine through. Dani advocates for “natural, juicy skin,” emphasising the importance of “enhancing your features.” He suggests a satin-finish foundation, seamlessly blended with moisturiser to achieve this natural, radiant look.

Want to achieve this look? Your favourite spring lipstick can even do double duty. Use it on your lips, up the cheekbones and add a tiny bit on the eyelids.

More blush, please

Few things say ‘warm weather glow’ quite like the charm of flushed, pink cheeks. So, it's no surprise that this season brings an array of not-so-subtle rosy blush products. For the perfect application, Dani recommends strategic placement – extend generously to the temples for a well-rested flush. When it comes to choosing the right hue, he encourages us to “play with different blushes.” Achieve a classic sun-kissed look with a warm golden shade or opt for a barely-there rose by choosing a complementary pinky-peach shade.

Pucker up

This spring, lip trends focus on the allure of gloss. Whether lavishly lacquered or enriched with your favourite balm, achieving a shiny pout is effortless. From barely-there pinks to ‘your lips but better’ neutrals and sheer glosses, capture the essence of low-key luxe with a simple, subtle swipe of one of these go-to shades.

Power pouts



For a dash of timeless glamour, welcome back the classic red lip. Opt for a bold velveteen finish paired with minimal base makeup. The secret? Precision is key; avoid blurred lines for the impactful statement you're aiming for this spring.

Eye Shadow Palette

For enduring makeup during warmer weather, Dani swears by a "refreshing fixer." Always include a high-quality eyeshadow base and an all-over face spray in your makeup bag. This combo guarantees vibrant, steadfast colour throughout the day.

Pops of colour

When it comes to minimal makeup, reaching for the boldest shade in your eyeshadow palette might not be your first move. Yet, the eyes invite us to indulge in creativity. While brick red and taupe stand as our everyday, wearable hues, reserve evenings and special occasions for a touch of mermaidcore magic with indigo blues or emerald green liners. Elevate your gaze by expertly layering on the pigment, ensuring a sophisticated edge that maintains the eyes as the focal point – it's all about the overall aesthetic.

For eyes that sparkle
Cared-for hair

This season’s hair narrative revolves around trends like ethereal, cool-girl waves or edgy choppy bobs and the ‘70s-inspired Birkin bangs. Mastering these seemingly ‘effortless’ hair looks can be a labour of love, complete with the assistance of a hairdryer. Which is why Dani suggests embracing your natural texture. Coax out those refined curls if you’re aiming for a curly look, or opt for sleek, tied-back styles that complement and elevate your straight locks.
