Today I decided to do a spring makeup look as it is spring where I am and I think it is so girly and fresh. Spring makeup to me is natural and dewy with playful pops of colour. To get this look I am going to be using purple and champagne iridescent eye shadow, pink peach blush with shimmer, bright pink lipstick, BB cream and illuminisor. Here’s what it looks like:
1. First apply eye primer and some champagne coloured iridescent shadow on the lid.
2. Next apply sticky tape from the outer edge of the eye to the brow. This will catch any fallout and ensure the eye shadow looks neat and polished while creating a guideline for you to apply your eye shadow. Apply shimmery purple eye shadow on the outer lid and crease.
3. Use light purple eye shadow around the shimmery purple eye shadow to blend the look and fade it out. Add the iridescent champagne shadow you used earlier beneath the brow.
4. fill in brows and line the lid creating a small wing. You can use the edge of the eye shadow as a guide on how to angel it as well as trying to angle it towards end of the brow. Add mascara.
5. Apply primer on the face and cover any imperfections with concealer. Use a liquid or cream foundation with light to medium coverage to get that dewy, natural look. I am using a BB cream. I realise that not everyone suits liquid foundation as their skin may become too oily from it. If this is the case you can just use your normal foundation and add illuminator later to make it slightly dewy.
6. Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks (the puffy parts of your cheeks when you smile). I have chosen a peach pink shade with some shimmer as I think it is perfect for spring but you can choose whichever colour suits your skin tone as I understand everyone’s skin ton suits certain colours.
7. Line the lips with a light pink lip liner and add bright pink lip stick.
8. Apply illuminator on the cupids bow (the part just above the top lip), along the top of the nose, beneath the brow, on top of the cheek bones and around the outer side of the eyes.
9. You can also add flowers and pretty plaits to your hair.
So there’s my interpretation of spring inspired makeup. The key is dewy skin, pink blush and a pop of colour on the eyes and lips.
