Spring Beauty Trends Challenge With Boots #AD

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that recently I’ve been trying out some spring beauty trends in association with Boots UK. Spring is always a great time to try a new look, embrace a brighter you, and welcome the (hopefully!) warmer weather with open arms and a bolder look. Boots is on a mission to raise the health and happiness of the nation and they’re making it even easier with offers on loads of haircare and makeup products.

In this post I wanted to show you how to create new looks for the season with inspiration from tons of makeup brands such as No7 and Maybelline, all of which you can easily find on the high street thanks to Boots. Don’t forget to let me know your favourite look in the comments below!

Spring Beauty Trends With Boots, including glitter lips, candy eyes, rainbow nails and summer glow...

The first trend I was challenged to try was GLITTER LIPS which I was so excited about. My instagram series Unwearable Lex is all about finding unusual and potentially scary beauty looks and just giving them a go. One of the best things about make up is that it washes off! You can try something in the privacy of your bedroom and if you don’t like it, no one ever has to see it. But trying it is so, so much fun!

If you want to recreate the Glitter Lips look, here are the step by step instructions:

I love this look and think it would be great for a festival look or a party. I’m going to be trying the NYX glitter primer on my eyes soon so keep a look out on my instagram for that!

 

 

✨Shine on!✨ An enduring beauty trend for spring/summer is no-make-up-make-up. The focus is on flawless, glowing skin to give a healthy and simple look. @BootsUK challenged me to try out this look and it's probably my biggest challenge so far – I'm a bold lip, bright liner, obnoxious colours kind of girl so this is WAY out of my comfort zone… but I really like it! Boots have everything you need to recreate this look: a medium/high coverage foundation for a perfect base, an easy to use highlighter and a natural non-glittery bronzer. Leave the rest of your make up simple for maximum impact: pared back lashes and brows and a pretty glossy lip keep the focus on your skin. Will you embrace the natural look? #AD

Next up was my biggest challenge: SUMMER GLOW. For most people this would be the easiest trend, as it’s probably what most people do as an every day beauty look. But as you may have worked out from my selfies on instagram, I’m more drawn to a bold lip, a bright eye, an intense highlighter look… anything a little OTT and I’m so on board. I think it comes from my rosacea: my way of distracting from my skin is to draw the eye to other parts of my face. So the spring summer trend of minimal, natural-looking make up filled me with fear! See how I achieved this look below:

Although I was nervous about this look I actually really like it! It looks very soft and pretty and is very simple to reproduce. I still wonder what it would look like with a neon pink lip though… some things never change!

 

Nails will always be my true love. It’s what my blog started with (hence the name Talonted Lex!) so I was giddy to film my first ever nail tutorial. One of the most fun spring beauty trends is RAINBOW NAILS and here is my take on the look.

If you fancy trying these nails for yourself here are the instructions:

 

And last but not least, the fourth spring beauty trend is CANDY EYES which I love! The basic premise is to make your eyes the focus of your look by using bright and bold colours. You could do a bright strip of coloured liner, an inner corner sparkly highlight or a beautiful bold cat eye look like I did above… Here’s how to achieve this simple but eye-catching look:

After doing this look I just wanted to throw on some flares, give myself some Farah Fawcett flicks and hit the disco. It’s just so fun and pretty! I think it would look brilliant with a bright green or purple as well… in fact, that may be the next look I try!

Which is your favourite of the spring beauty trends and how many of them will you be trying? You can pick everything you could possibly need to create these looks from Boots, with most of these items currently featuring in a deal. Even more of a reason to treat yourself! What better way to kick-start the season than with a brand new beauty look?
