Spring Cleaning is definitely in order this month – which means out with the old and in with the new! And, the same goes for your make-up bag!
Here are some quick tips to looking fresh and pretty this Spring:
This season’s look (found on the runways of Prada, Donna Karan and Dolce and Gabbana) is fresh and clean. Flawless foundation, soft highlighting on the eyes, nose and cheeks, nude lips with a hint of baby pink and a few coats of mascara. Beautiful!
Try using a tinted moisturizer instead of a heavy foundation. Light and sheer is the look we are going for. If you have freckles – let them shine through! Finish with a light dusting of translucent powder to set the look.
Peachy Pinks of any and every shade will do. But don’t over do it. Always remember to tap off the brush first – on the back of your hand – before applying it on the face.
Think natural and fresh – try applying a neutral tone eyeshadow in a light beige-brown on the lid only. To kick this look up a bit, try adding a darker shade of brown into the crease of the eyelid, finished by a chocolate brown toned liner.
Go soft and glossy. A simple baby pink or nude lipgloss will do just fine – but don’t forget the shine!
And, don’t forget to Wake.up & Make.up!
