Spring Makeup: A Warm, Natural Glow

Spring is the perfect time to ditch the dark eyeshadows and heavy contour and soften things up a bit with glowing neutrals or light pink tones.  It’s a time to put an end to this winter and brighten things up (anyone else think that sounds like a line from Frozen?) #momlife!

I’m not one to wear a bold, vibrant lipstick or eyeshadow, but I can get down with a “natural glow” and minimal makeup look for radiant looking skin.

I recently picked up the Maybelline 24KT Nudes Eye Shadow Pallette at Ulta.   This 12- shade pallet features shimmering nude and gold metallic colors that are perfect for Spring.

  1. Cover brow bone in the soft cream shade.
  2. Apply the purple shade to the lower lid.
  3. Add the dark maroon to the crease and outer corners of my lid.
  4. Blend the two soft shimmer shadows and apply to the lower lid (on top of the purple).
  5. Dab a light amount of light champagne to the inside corners of the eyes.
  6. Brush a thin line of the charcoal shade along the upper and lower lash lines to mimic a subtle eyeliner.
  7. Finish with two coats of Benefit Rollerlash Mascara.

My second purchase from Ulta was the Tarte Hamptons Weekender Contour Palette.  It is a travel-size highlight, blush and contour palette with three beach ready shades.

  1. I warm up my temples, cheeks, and nose with the farmer’s market contour.
  2. Swirl summer house onto my cheek bones.  Color is buildable.
  3. Add some dimension and shimmer with a few swipes of beach getaway on my cheekbones and forehead.

I’m a broken record when it comes to the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick Set.  I’ve got nothing left to say, except that I love all the shades in this set.  For this look, I chose to keep it simple and neutral to match the rest of my makeup, so I went with the shade Audition.

This spring I am embracing my natural beauty with a fresh, glowing face!

My top is old from Forever 21.  My necklace is Sugarfix by Baublebar from Target.  Earrings are from Target as well.
