YES~! it's true New York finally finally FINALLY has some decent weather. SUNSHINE how I have missed you!
Due to the new and improved weather I have been changing my make up a bit to celebrate. Out with the pale powder, matte skin, and pastel pink blush, the winter princess look. I want a to celebrate like a spring peach! lol.
For warmer weather I really love to have more dewy skin, a light dusting of bronzer and peach/orangey colors to bring some warmth and glow to my face.
Here are the items I have been using lately to achieve this look.
For face, I just put on some light foundation or BB cream. No powder.
1st step is to contour with NARS Laguna
In the debate over Benefit Hoola vs. Nars I am 100% for team NARS Laguna - just freaking perfect IMHO
2. Peachy cheeks! If I am really going for the dewy look I will use a cream blush but I love all of these cream or not
Top R-L : MAC Springsheen, Estee Lauder Sunset Coral
Middle: Maybelline dream matte mousse in Peach Satin (cream-mousse)
Bottom: R-L MAC Ripe Peach, MAC Ladyblush (cream)
3. Eyes-shimmery light soft colors
Bit tired of the constant brown, brown, & thus more brown eyeshadow I have been sporting for months.
These are a refreshing change to my routine
Lorac Baked Bronzer - this is supposed to be a bronzer (sample) it's so small and so ORANGEY. I am not a fan of orange bronzer but on the eyes this comes across as a beautiful light penny shade that can really build to a true copper.
MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque -for lazy mornings all I apply is this and I'm out, but use this almost everyday as a base now for my other shadows in the same family
Stila Kitten helps give some shimmery bright eyes
Coffret D'or Palette in 01 orange gradation.
With Rubenesque as a base followed by the peach shadow and a little of the brown in the crease is the look I have been sporting to work, and loving!
Lil brown liner, mascara, light peach gloss and I'm done.
Bronzey, shimmery, and peachy is my look for this spring.
Has the recent weather change brought in new inspiration for your make up routines? Hope you like my celebration face!
