The dream team is back together to share a couple spring makeup trends to keep an eye out for! I of course, know nothing about makeup, so the lovely Sara of Makeup by Sara Eleen has come to the rescue for a consult!
1. The Spring of Dewy Skin
I’m in luck this season because dewy skin is all I do in life (mostly because I’m lazy)! “What is dewy skin exactly?” you ask? Well the dewy look is a pretty light to medium coverage that gives that light-reflecting look. Honestly lately I have been getting so many compliments on my skin and believe me, it’s not because my skin is amazing at all. I think it’s because I trick people with this dewy look. Less coverage and a good moisturizer can go a long way to give your skin that healthy radiant look.
2. The Spring of BOLD Eyes
This spring, bold colors are all the rage, particularly emerald green, cobalt blue, and gold, as seen a couple of weeks ago on my day to night post. When Sara first told me about this emerald green craze neither one of us was sure how we felt about it, but after we saw Christina’s photos we became believers. Now I can’t say that I would wear this look daily, but I gotta say, it’s pretty fun.
3. The Spring of Orange Lipstick
I am wearing more of a coral here with a hint of orange (she used an orange lip liner) but as far as the trend goes we are talkin’ punch you in the face orange (not sure what that means but I’m rollin’ with it).
To get this exact look, here is what Sara used! Foundation: MAC Hyper Real Foundation (discontinued) Contour: Glo Mineral’s Glo Pressed Base, Highlight: Sonia Kashuk’s Liquid Bronze Highlight, Eyeshadow Base: MAC Paint Pot (Painterly), Inner Corner: NYX Ultra Pearl Loose Pigment (Lime), Inner Lid: MAC pigment (Golders Green – discontinued), Outer Lid: MAC Eyeshadow (Parfait Amour), Outer Corner and Under Eye: MAC Beauty Marked, Blush: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (Stereo Rose), Eyebrows: Sebastian Trucco (Brown), Lips: NYX Lip Liner (Orange), NYX Lipstick (Femme & Indian Pink), Lashes: Ardel’s Natural Lashes.
Also, not that anyone cares what I’m wearing here, but I love these black satin wide-legged pants from Forever 21 with my all time favorite 1983 Michael Jackson t-shirt that I found in a thrift store in Germany with my friend Margeaux (who just got engaged this weekend! YAYAYA!). It was a little kid’s pajama set and it came with shorts that had the exact image on each leg. I mean come on what more can you ask for? One pajama set, three identical pictures of Michael, priceless!
