Spring’s most compelling beauty trends

We take a look at some of the season’s best beauty trends – and how to wear them

When it comes to beauty, it's easy to get stuck in the same routine. Here, we take a look at three trends to help refresh your makeup bag...


What? Spiky eyelashes was once the stand-out beauty staple of the Sixties, and they’re back. For spring 2019, clumpy lashes walked down the runway at Prada and the takeaway was: the more spidery, the better.

How? Achieve the look with the help of individual, buildable false eyelashes, £3.99, from H&M. Next, load up with layers of Bourjois Eye Catching Extreme Volume Mascara, £8.99, from Boots. Focus on applying to individual lashes to get that spiky look.


What? Where makeup is concerned, joyous tones of bright pink are the go-to this spring. At Fashion Week this trend leaned towards the out-there, like hot pink mascaraed eyelashes. But you can also play with this trend via swipes of vivid lipstick and mood-brightening shades of blusher.

How? Wilko's bright pink Essence Matt Touch Blush, £1, makes a perfect makeup bag staple for achieving rosy cheeks. For your lips, we love The Body Shop’s multi-purpose Lip & Cheek Stain in Pink Hibiscus, £8 – dab it onto your lips and press them for a natural-looking blast of colour.


What? We think it’s a waste to only ever open glitter pots during festival season. And according to the looks of models at at Missoni and Simone Roche, this spring is the time to play around with glitter.

How? One of the coolest, and perhaps most surprising beauty looks on the runway was glitter-doused hair. To be honest, it took us back to school discos – in a good way. Feeling nostalgic? Why not spritz subtle sections of glitter along your hairline on a night out with Iridescent Glitter Hair Spray, £4, from Claire’s? Trust us on this one... For sparkling eyes, opt for Pixi's Glitter-y Eye Quad, £14. It's available in four different colourways, from Marks and Spencer.

In praise of the standby card box

Card Boxes: If you know, you know...


Keeping up with life's changes is so much easier when you already have a well-stocked card box to hand.

Someone at work's had a baby? There's a card for that. Niece has passed her driving test? Son has a new job? Maybe you just want you say Thank you, or let somebody know that you're thinking of them.




In an ideal world we'd already have the right congratulatory card already in the house. But things don't always work out that way!

Whatever you want to say, Lewisham's Card Factory has a card for pretty much every occasion.

From driving test congratulations, christening and new baby cards, good lucks, new home cards, thank yous, and get well soon wishes, they have something of everything. 

Visit Card Factory, Lewisham. Cards start at 29p each, meaning that you can finally start putting that card box together after all...

M&S moves towards a plastic-free future

Marks and Spencer has announced that it is introducing wooden cutlery to all of its stores in September 2018 – and that includes Lewisham.

That means:

  • 2 million plastic straws will be replaced by paper straws
  • 75 million pieces of plastic cutlery will be replaced by wooden cutlery

What’s more, M&S is one of Lewisham’s many stores that will refill your water bottle free of charge.

Marks and Spencer moves towards a plastic free future

These are just some of the steps the team is making to remove single-use plastics from the whole business.

Refill me!

Did you know that in the UK, 7.7 billion plastic bottles of water are purchased each year, and only 43% are recycled, with the rest heading to landfill, incineration and our oceans and waterways?

Here at Lewisham, we care about the environment, which is why we’ve launched a new campaign to help reduce single-use plastic.

You can head to any of our cafés displaying this sign and they will refill your water bottle FOR FREE.
