SkinSkin is the most important aspect of any makeup look – beautiful, glowy skin is very important. To achieve that, first of all use a very good moisturizer all over your skin and give it a time to settle in before you start using a light-weight foundation. Also, if you’re your skin tends to be a little bit dry, use a reflective pigment product – it’s a primer that has a little shine in it and you have to apply it on the key areas of the face, or all over and it really promotes that super healthy glow to the skin.
Just remember, when applying foundation, the main idea is not to cover the skin – is to give it an even color, without looking heavy.
Trick!Before using the foundation, warm it up a little in your palms, then pick up small amounts at a time with a thick brush and gently brush forward until it’s completely blended into the skin. You’ll notice how the color will pick up naturally and it will become skin-like and luminescent.
That’s the look you want to get – not too much, but enough get an even, smooth canvas. Don’t use too much powder, however if your skin is oily it’s ok to press a little bit of powder down through those oily T-zone areas, so that you don’t feel too shiny.
LipsIn spring, you want your lips to really grab focus by drenching it with lip gloss. To achieve this look all you need to do is to trace the outer edges of the lips nicely, but soften that pencil down. You may even fill your lips just a little bit with the pencil in order to create just a nice even blush, then gloss generously your lips. You can see how lips catch light and they appear fuller.
Trick!After you applied your lips gloss, trace little vertical strokes on the lower lip to make the gloss go over the full of the lip, so that light will bounce off easily and to make lips pop out more.
EyesSpring eyes are all about color. Pick some beautiful reflective pigment for lids and brow bone, to drench your lids with gorgeous reflective shades: soft, pearly pinks, violets, blues, greens, even metallic gold and silver. Don’t be afraid to use color around the eye – this is the appropriate season to brighten up the eye.
If smokey eyes or cat eyes are your favorites, you can still wear them, just make sure you’ll replace blacks and greys with beautiful, fresh colors. When lining the eyes, don’t use a hard pencil: use blues, greens and violets, to match it with the eye shadow you are using – just to make the lashes look a bit thicker.
Apply mascara – wiggle the wand at the base of the lashes and then pull up. Also, don’t over exaggerate your brows, keep them nice and soft – you don’t want them rigid looking – you want just as slight bit of a wispy look that soften the eyes. First use a small grooming brush and just gently brush the brows upward. Then if you need to fill them in, take your pencil or powder and add just a touch.
CheeksDon’t be afraid to go a bit crazy with the blush. Take your blush brush and instead of sweeping color on the cheeks, use a popping technique while applying it. Just put some color on the tip of the brush and pop. This will create a flushing look, the color will just gently and slowly come forward on the skin. It’s almost like the color is pushing up out of your skin.When you get that effect, skin will look like it’s alive. This will really define a look that’s really fresh and healthy glowing.
