The HQ Beauty Blogger Essentials

Sometimes it’s too easy to get stuck in a beauty rut! After a long winter of fighting chapped lips and untameable hair, it’s time for a spring switch up! Some of our favourite gals have grabbed their beauty blogger essentials from HQhair to inspire your latest spring looks! From pastel nudes to smoky eyes and beachy waves, these gals will have you rekindling the romance you had with your favourite products before the winter weather took its toll!

Soft & Subtle Pastels

There’s nothing worse than a thick base of makeup when the weather warms up. Like seriously, your skin will definitely not be your bestie! Kenzie has achieved the perfect balance with her super pretty, subtle look!

How To Recreate This Super Cute Look

Kenzie has achieved the perfect complexion using EX1 Cosmetics Invisiwear Liquid Foundation. Lightweight and luminous, it expertly conceals imperfections and contains light diffusing pigments for a gorgeous glow! Define your best features with the Bourjois Contouring Illusion Bronzer by swiping on a little bronzer below the cheekbones. Dust on some highlight above and show off your supermodel looks!

One of Kenzie’s beauty blogger essentials is Pixi Hello Rose! To glam up the look with these rose gold hues, boost your highlight with the Glow Booster and add a pop of colour to your cheeks with the Beauty Blush Duo. Finish the look with Pixi LipLift Max for an Instagram-worthy pout and the L’Oréal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara for a false lash effect in seconds!

Smoky & Sassy

Renu’s smoky eye look is absolutely stunning! Combining summery pinks with spring lilacs, it’s perfect as both an everyday look and for a night out with the gals! However you decide to sport it, it’ll look a-m-a-zing!

How To Recreate This Super Sassy Look

Start by preparing your skin with the Laura Geller Spackle Treatment SPF30 Primer to extend the life of your foundation. Not only will it leave your complexion toned and balanced, it also defends your skin against UV rays! Once absorbed, apply some of the Bourjois Matte 24 Hour Foundation which glides effortlessly onto skin for flawless light coverage!

Now your base is sorted, it’s time to recreate those super sultry smoky eyes! Renu used theBalm Appetit Eyeshadow Palette and combined shade ‘Mac Encheese’ with ‘Tate R. Tots’.  Complete by drawing the perfect winged liner; add a few coats of the Rimmel Wake Me Up Mascara and then flaunt your incredible eyes!

Colourful n’ Classy

We adore Jodie’s spring look! Opting for a bold nude lip and matching eyeshadow, she looks super classy with the perfect amount of colour! Don’t forget to take a minute to admire her winged eyeliner skills either, because we are SO jealous!

How To Recreate This Super Classy Look

To achieve this flawless complexion, Jodie used the EX1 Cosmetics Delete Anti-Blemish Dark Circle Concealer to hide imperfections. Packed with antioxidants and Vitamin E, it also soothes and heals blemishes at the same time! Those cheekbones sharp enough to kill were contoured with the Laura Geller Beach Matte Baked Hydrating Bronzer. Highly pigmented and super silky, it expertly defines natural shadows for the ultimate sun-kissed glow!  

Of course, you can’t recreate this look without getting Jodie’s incredible matching eye and lip look! Use the Face Stockholm Precision Eyeliner to get those striking wings effortlessly! Designed with a tapered tip, it delivers consistent, clean lines in seconds which dry quickly so you don’t have to fret about any eyeliner fails! Now, for those out-of-this-world nude lips… Add a quick sweep of the Illamasqua Anti Matter Lipstick in shade Bang for a non-drying, semi-matte coverage!

Bouncy Beach Curls

It’s safe to say we’re super envious of Zoe’s bouncy gorgeous curls! Her long, luscious locks are to die for and pretty much all we could ever dream of! Once you’ve finished admiring these incredible tresses, why not recreate them yourself?

How To Achieve This Summery Hairstyle

To get this amazing hairstyle, Zoe used Pro Blo CurlME Deluxe. Pro Blo is an innovative brush with detachable barrels for a smooth, professional blow dry you can do in the comfort of your own home! Just remember to spritz in some ghd Heat Protect Spray before styling to ensure minimal damage to your locks from the heat of your hairdryer.

If your hair isn’t quite as long as you’d like, the Grow Gorgeous Hair Growth Serum works within 8 days to improve visible hair length! Not only that, it also improves density, moisturises your scalp and leaves your hair feeling super thick! To keep all those long strands strong, apply the Grow Gorgeous Strengthening Oil to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. This way, when you use the Pro Blo, the curl will last longer and hair will stay healthy with a gorgeous shine!
