We’ve had a look through the Spring/Summer beauty trends and sifted through the office appropriate looks, so you don’t have to.

The key trends are bold and bright colours on the lips paired with clean and radiant skin.

Here are your beauty bag essentials to master the SS17 “no makeup-makeup” trend of glowing skin, minimal eye makeup, fluffy brows, and a daring red lip.

Long gone are the days of Instagram brows on #fleek. SS2017 is all about those natural, fluffy brows. If you’re not naturally blessed with brows like Cara Delevigne, a way of achieving natural looking brows without changing its shape or making them too boxy is by using a tinted brow gel. The tint in the gel will colour any blonde or barely-there hairs whilst the gel will groom and keep them in place. The Mac Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set is always a safe option as they offer a large colour range and do the job well.

Like brows, it’s all about moving away from the heavy eye makeup style on Instagram and going for a more minimal and effortless makeup look. A way of subtly enhancing the shape and colour of your eyes is by using brown instead of black eyeliner. We love the Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘N’ Kohl Liquid Eye Pencil in Barbarella Brown, it’s budge-proof and versatile. Use it on your waterline to define your ‘smize’ or smudge it out on your lash line for an understated smokey eye. Finish the look with the beauty guru raved Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara for long, luscious lashes.

The classic red pout is back with a bang and there’s no better way to wear a bold lip, then paired with a simple makeup look.

Get on board this season’s beauty trend on any budget; As a red pout is so classic, you can find many takes on the colour from high street brands to high-end designers.

Tight on cash? We love Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick 111 as it’s got the coverage of a high-end lipstick without the price tag.

The key to a red lip is keeping it matte. Unfortunately, matte lipsticks aren’t the kindest to your lips, keep them from getting chapped with the Origins Hydrating Drink Up Lip Balm. It does exactly what it says on the bottle!
