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?

    Looking good :) I can’t wait for Spring too. The florists are already selling imported Tulips. I love tulips and I equate that with Spring usually. So I guess Spring should be here in two months or so.

    What do you think of the Tarte Lipsurgence pencils? I saw them but couldn’t decide if I should get any or not and settled for the cheek stain which I absolutely love. It’s so cooling when applied.

      Thanks Fieran…you are like my mom – she is OBSESSED with Tulips, of course in my hometown Tulips bloom for only 3 months of the year, maximum. Although where I am living, the weather is indeed spring like, so don’t have much to complain about, unfortunately. haha.

      About Tarte’s lip pencils, I have four of them and I love them even though they are utterly overpriced. I would recommend getting one or two of these that you like, but definitely not something to get in bulk.
