Spring is here which means it's time to say goodbye to the smokey eyes (at least for the time being) and get back on board with peachy cheeks and pink pouts. Lacking inspiration? Here's our favourite go to look for the moment, and all it requires is six products!

Start creating your perfect base using the Fashionista Ready To Wear Luminous Foundation. Apply the product using your finger tips to ensure it meshes in well with your own natural skin - this will help to create a natural, dewy glow that's perfect for every day. Looking for a little more coverage? Apply a second light coat of the product in trouble areas to give you a flawless finish.

Next it's time to add powder to the skin to ensure your makeup stays all day. To mattify the skin, lightly dust MAC's Select Sheer Pressed Powder all over your face, leaving your cheeks powder-free for a fresh luminosity. Finish up your face with a light dusting of L'Oreal Le Blush in Apricot on the apples of your cheeks to brighten up the look.

The next steps of the look are all about adding definition with a minimal amount of makeup. To define the brows naturally and keep them in place, brush them upwards using the Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper and carefully shape them as desired. Press the product into the brows to create a wet look finish.

Since the focus is all on the lips with this look, all that's needed is a few lashings of Elizabeth Arden's Beautiful Colour Maximum Volume mascara. Coat both the top and bottom lashes, leave them to dry, and apply another layer to create fuller looking doll-like lashes.

Finally it's time for the real star of the show: L'Oreal's Matte Lipstick in Glamour Fuchsia. Since this lipstick is matte, it's also very long wearing, which means you don't even need a lip liner for serious precision. Apply it straight from the bullet, press your lips together and you're good to go!
