This month, the best place for romance is smeared on your face. The spring/summer catwalks were flushed with prettiness. Pink was everywhere, but a very precise shade of pink – a peachy, natural, just-gambolled-through-a-field, oh-am-I-blushing? shade of pink. It was on the eyelids (a rosy, matte wash), the lips (sheer and slightly bitten, or slick with pale gloss), the nails (perfectly painted, like petals), the cheeks (a gentle bubblegum pop), and the cheekbones. Bobbi Brown’s Uber Pink spring collection (Illuminating Bronzing Powder, £27, bobbibrown.co.uk) is a good place to start.
