Is it Spring yet, seriously? I just want to forget my red’s and move on to other bright hues, ya know? In the beauty blogosphere, at least, we are well immersed into the spring collections, so we will pretend it is ok, y’all!
Like what you see that’s on my face? Well then for the breakdown, you gotta keep reading.
I used NARS Sheerglow Foundation in Barcelona for foundation, MAC Studio Fix Concealer in NC 42 for covering dark circles. I wanted to keep focus on skin, so I added the glow factor with Benefit Girl With Pearl Highlighter; using it all over the face in dots. I knew I wanted to have bold lips, so in order to avoid looking like a clown, I used a pale pink blush/illuminating powder from Lancome’s Spring 2012 Collection, Roseraie Illuminating Powder. For lips, I went all out and used Tarte Lip Surgence Lip Stain in Amused. I wanted to keep the eyes neutral, but still dramatic, so I used a pale brown and a dramatic, shimmery musky dark brown in the other v (from the limited edition, already sold out Too Faced Sweet Dream Palette), you may use any combination of neutrals as you please. I finished off with two coats of Laura Mercier Long Lash mascara. I also did my brows with Benefit Brows a-go-go.
So, what do you think, is it spring yet?
