Easter is only few weeks away and I am pretty sure nail lovers are prepping for their next nail salon visits. Even though it is not my case I love to bring you as always some inspiration and wearable ideas that go hand in hand with spring and Easter theme. So after the white dresses trend article here we are lusting over cute nail designs.
I find Easter quite difficult when it comes to deciding what nails to go for as I am more lover of classic tones like red or earthy tones. However, there are still so many designs to chose from and you can go for subtle nudes like pink or lilac with some cute nail art that is not over the top.
However, for those who wants to go all out there are many designs that features bright colours and themes like chickens, cute bunnies, eggs and really colourful designs. I opted for selection of more muted designs with more delicate designs like cute bunny ears or flowers.
If you do not go to salon and you do your own nails like I do I think the idea of different colours on individual nails is also very cute. You can bring some more brave colours and metallics or you can also keep it quite tonal.
I am really loving how Tiktok dictates what is trendy. Yesterday I went to a hairdresser and a girl next to me asked for the popular Tiktok Butterfly haircut and today I was totally influenced trying on myself over40 version of the Espresso Makeup.
Now that makeup style is all over my FYP and to be honest I do love that look. I just need to keep trying until I master it and until I find the perfect products. Another huge trend is the juicy cherry cola lips. However, I still enjoy exploring new spring collections. I have recently visited the SUQQU counter at Selfridges and explored the collections. I am forever in love with their ombre blushes and the spring shades are just what we need to put on our cheeks.
NATURAL LOOKS FOR SPRING
However, the natural looks are big for this spring. Even the Espresso makeup is natural just more striking with more sexy eyes and smudged liner and big layer of ideally brown mascara. Obviously the Trish McEvoy look is uber natural but we are still using natural tones which I know will make lot of women happy. So think less blush, good skin base, peachy and rose tones even on eyes and looking fresh and youthful.
Roseinc is also is promoting “naked” makeup look with really glossy finish on eyes, cheeks and lips. The finish is just very natural that is giving healthy and youthful vibe.
WHAT TO INVEST IN?
You cannot go wrong with a good CC cream or perhaps the Roseinc Tinted serum for the natural finish. If you use Trish McEvoy Instant Eyelift you will create perfectly looking natural base. Some new spring blush is a must as well as a product that will bring some glow to your face. If you are more the Espresso makeup kind of girl go for deep brown tones, good highlight, brown mascara and Kajal Pencil Eyeliner. Victoria Beckham has a wonderful range that will be just perfect for this trend.
Thanks to social media ageing is even bigger topic than ever and with that comes skincare and all the ways how to make our skin look it’s best at any age. Tiktok is full of useful videos, educational videos about all different ways including invasive treatments however I wish I knew these three things sooner. And when I say sooner I mean 20 years ago. I know things would be even better now when I am in my 40s.
I really find huge difference if I double cleanse. And that is something I was not doing consistently since my 20’s. To be honest I was not one of those girls who did not take makeup off after a night out as my skin was so severely affected by acne. I simply could not do that. However double cleansing is so powerful and really makes a huge difference for your skin. One of my favourite cleansers is this one from Dermalogica. And I love to use as the other step La Mer Micelar water. I know sometimes after a long day you want to keep things simple but each time I consistently push myself I find my skin is just better.
SHOP THE CLEANSING PRODUCTS
LED therapy is huge these days and I wish it was so common as it is now when I was younger. The changes it can make to your skin whether it is healing and it really treats different issues. And now with so many LED home masks we do not have to go to salons anymore. I use my Currentbody so often and I also have discount code for you EVA15 in case you want to try for yourself. This applies on all Currentbody products.
SHOP THE LED THERAPY DEVICES
I grew up surrounded by people who believe that the most important thing is to come extremely tanned after going abroad on holiday. Young girls at the time not only refused to use any SPF they even used home remedies to look even darker or used oil accelerators. I really wish the fashion back then was more like today. SPF is so important and sadly the damage cannot be reversed. I have seen my skin on the computer after they analyzed it several times and could not believe my eyes. And I have not been really tanning since my 20s. I am that person that comes pale from the holiday. Do not get me wrong I think tan is attractive and I am often admiring other people’s tan but nothing beats beautiful skin when you get older. So I wish I was using factor 50 at least on my face since day 1. I know things would be different now.
So many people I know have botox including my sister and they swear on it. People look like they just had a month long holiday with zero stress and were getting 10 hours of sleep. They simply look rested. I however am still not convinced that botox is for me or at least not YET. One thing I have to say is that we all age so there is not such a thing that you will look young forever. However, you can look and feel your best with the right care.
So here are some tips you can do to avoid botox or maybe get more time before you say YES.
The overall care is so important. Make sure you have the right products for your skin. If you can invest in good quality products that target ageing and also hydration. Strangely I was at a seminar with a well known brand and the doctor asked if you were to only have one skincare step in your routine which one do you think is the most crucial? The answer is hydration. So make sure you always hydrate but also cleanse as that always makes massive difference for me. And also if your budget lets you try some facials as well.
The red light therapy is at it’s peak now. Most salons will use some form of it and there are many ways how you can use it at home. It does work wonders and I highly recommend investing in a LED mask. I love my Currentbody one and also I can offer discount code EVA15 if you decide that it is something you want to try. You can use it 3-5 times a week for 10 minutes and it tackles so many skin issues.

Microcurrent devices and facials
Microcurrent is like your Pilates for face. They really help to work your muscles in order to make them tighter and really lift your face. I use ZIIP HALO (use discount code EVAZIIP) and it works wonders. You actually see immediate lift however the microcurrents also work well long-term. I wish I had one much sooner but hey I am sure with regular use I will see more and more improvements.
If you have not tried a Face Gym and you can if you are in London I recommend it. It is an incredible facial really working your muscles a bit of like taking your face to gym. However, you can also practice different massages at home. The point of this is to keep working your muscles with your hands in order to keep them tight. It improves circulation and stimulates collagen. So its a win win.
