Part one of our Spring Make Up tutorial concentrated on using tinted moisturiser rather than the heavier foundation cover we prefer in winter. Today, we're moving to lip colour, and discussing the idea that Spring means a lighter, matt or glossier look - and ultimately more kissable lips!
Matt or High Shine?
Which do you prefer, Matt or Gloss? There seems to be a huge influx of Matt shades on the market right now, and it's important to choose ones which don't dry out our lips, or drag the sensitive skin there. Prevention is always better than cure, so first apply a lip conditioner, such as the invaluable Trilogy Lip Balm. Daily use will help promote soft, smooth, perfectly kissable lips. Nourishing certified organic rosehip oil helps to heal while jojoba soothes. Cocoa and shea butters deliver daily nutrients and cooling peppermint oil provides a gentle zing.

With Spring shades such as Pretty Daisy, Rusty Rose and Silky Tulip, Benecos Natural Shiny Lipcolour will add a new-season glow to your lips.
