So, keep an open mind, unleash your inner creative and allow yourself to be inspired by some new beauty looks this April. Because your next big beauty win could be just around the corner...
Curly-haired girls, rejoice! Corkscrew curls are back on trend, with fashion houses like Gucci and Altuzarra showcasing all kinds of curly, crispy ringletty ‘dos on the runway. To ensure you’re not repping the pad perm that your mum had in the 80s, keep your outfit clean and chic. The end result? A sexy, playful, effortless and eye-catching beauty look. What’s not to love?

Liquid face peels
At-home facial peels have been around for some time, but they’ve been growing in popularity – and we can see the a-peel (pun intended!). Rather than using exfoliating particles to buff away dead skin cells manually, the chemical formulas gently dissolve them without agitating your skin. If you ask us, it’s pretty satisfying saying sayonara to those little clumps of dead skin (and that soft baby skin underneath can’t be beat!).
Colour-changing lipsticks are now a thing, and they’re taking the world of personalised beauty products by storm. When the formulas touch your lips, they transform into a specific hue based on the chemistry of your skin, which means you have the ultimate lipstick shade for you. Pretty cool, huh?
Personalise your pout: e.l.f. cosmetics Gotta Glow Lip Tint, Lipstick Queen Mornin' Sunshine Lipstick ($25, spacenk.com), Sassy Lips Make The Moment ($32.70 approx, sassylips.us)
Just in time for Easter, pretty pastels are popping up everywhere in the beauty world right now. From pastel hair colours (including Dani Minogue’s new dye job), to frosty makeup palettes, beauty lovers worldwide are ditching bold hues in favour of soft, unicorn-esque shades. I love pastel purple or lilac eyeshadow to bring out my green eyes, but minty green, peach and pale pink are just as pretty!
Prettify yourself with pastels: Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit - Aurora ($52.80 approx, anastasiabeverlyhills.com), Lush Chick 'N' Mix
