4 Essentials for a Spring Beauty Refresh


The spring season is in full swing.

Shobana Lakkavally, makeup artist and beauty editor, joined CTV Morning Live with easy spring beauty tips that make a big difference and save time.

These were her top four picks:

Wella Elements Pre-Shampoo Purifying Clay: This product is to be used before shampoo to cleanse excess sebum, oil and rebalance the scalp. A healthy scalp can equate to more volume.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Sticks: These eye shadow sticks offer all-day wear and are waterproof. The line offers buildable colours that are versatile and don't crease, flake or fade.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Serum Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex: This iconic product is used by people of all ages. It supports the skin's natural repair process and has hyaluronic acid for hydration.

Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Superfusion Facial Oil: The aim of this product is to reduce water loss and lock in ingredients of any products applied before it. It offers plant-derived protein and essential oils. It can be used before makeup or mixed in with moisturizer.
