It’s always great to push the boundaries of season-typical beauty (pastels for spring, brights for summer, red lips for the holidays — you know the drill), but sometimes it’s good to slip back into your comfort zone too. A soft, über-feminine spring beauty look is a great tool to have in your makeup arsenal as the weather warms up; perfect for fresh Spring mornings, Summer evenings, and wedding season events – it’s the LBD of makeup.
To find out how you can get this look at home, keep reading…
Get The Eyes
To get the eyes in this beauty look, start by prepping your lids with eyeshadow primer to make the colour last all day (and night). Then, sweep two eyeshadow shades over your lids: a sheer, skin-toned shadow across the entire lid, and a more glittery white or champagne in the inner corner. Clean up any fallout with a damp cotton bud, then conceal under the eyes.
In order to take the look from whimsical to something a little more defined, add a soft line of either black or brown eyeliner to the upper lash line only, creating a slight wing on the outer corner of the eye. Fill your brows (if desired) for a bit more definition, then curl lashes and add a coat of mascara — waterproof or tubing formulas are a great choice, especially if you find your lashes lose their curl during the day.
Get The Cheeks and Lips
To finish this breezy Spring look, choosy pinky neutrals for the rest of your makeup, too. A rose-hued “my lips but better” lipstick is a great place to start for your lip colour (seen earlier in this post), and you can add a coat of sheer, shimmery lipgloss for added lightness (image directly above this paragraph).
Finally, blend a subtle hint of blush to the apples of your cheeks–again, a light pink or a pinky-coral is a great choice,–and highlight if desired. Style your hair with romantically loose, soft curls, and you’re good to go!
