For me, spring/summer makeup always means finishing a day time look with a hydrating wash of colour on the lips. Something fresh, pretty and low maintenance ranging from everyday nudes to chic pink tones. This is my go-to spring lip lineup of hydrating lipsticks and tints. (They also all pair well with a fresh cream blush for a healthy, glowy complexion.

A tinted lip balm that delivers a gorgeous sheer lip glow. Formulated with shea butter and collage, it gives you super nourished and plumped lips. When you’re not sure which lip colour to choose, go for this. Sakura is my shade of choice.
Lip Chic balances the pigmentation of a good lipstick with a non-sticky glossy finish. Infused with hyaluronic acid, it nourishes, plumps the lips and feels comfortable to wear all day. Hyssop*, from the Butterfly Collection, is my current favourite shade to wear – a pinky, brown nude.
The Posh Lipsticks deliver on everything you’d expected from a hydrating, comfortable lipstick. Rich colour pay-off and a nourishing texture full of natural oils and vegan waxes to form a protective layer over the lips. The buttery texture glides on to deliver a healthy shine to the lips. My current shade of choice? Pout.
I reach for these so often – not only for the range of everyday shades but it’s a brilliant 2in1. You get the pigment and high-shine of a lipstick matched with a nourishing balm texture that’s infused with hyaluronic acid. The shades Crystal Happikiss and Pillow Talk are my current favourites.
What I love about this spring lip lineup is their ability to deliver a healthy glow to the lips – complimenting a radiant complexion. Votary’s new Tinted Lip Gloss is no exception. Packed with squalane, jojoba and baobab to hydrate and plump alongside raspberry seed oil to build that natural glow on the lips. It can also give a nourishing shine when applied over the top of any lipstick.
