In tribute of the long anticipated arrival of spring which I am super excited for, I thought I’d do a spring makeup look step-by-step in honour of the warmer weather. Spring in all its blooming glory obviously means summertime is on its way, and for those who suffer through long, snowy winters it is somewhat a time of celebration knowing that summertime bliss will soon arrive! So when the warmer weather graces us I like to lighten up my makeup routine and exude that springtime glowy, soft makeup look. So in anticipation of the sun and fun here we go.
Step 1: Skin
Start with a freshly cleansed face. Apply a tinted moisturizer/BB cream followed by concealer under your eyes blending it into your cheekbones, eyelids and inner corners to brighten the eyes and on any trouble spots, then set with a loose powder. If you do not like to wear foundation simply skip and follow the remaining steps.
Step 2: Brows
Fill in your brows as you normally would.
Step 3: Blush
Apply a sheer blush. Pink or coral tones both work well for this look so choose which suits your skin tone better.
To give you that pretty glow, lightly apply highlighter on the highest points of your cheek bones moving your brush in a slight C shape back and forth towards your temple, inner corners of the eye, lower eyelid and cupid’s bow making sure to blend well.
Next, apply mascara. Since we’re not using eyeliner apply 2-3 coats of mascara to intensify and brighten the eye.
Step 6: Lips
Apply a pretty pink lipstick, balm or gloss of your choice.
