Recently I've ditched my heavy eye looks and thick foundations and opted for a more minimalist makeup menu. It may in part be due to my laziness, but I'm not gonna lie -- I love the fresh and simple effect this has. I realize that spring is soon coming to an end, but this combo is something that can carry you from spring into summer. It's super quick and easy, and it only involves 5 products.
Beginning with a clean face, I use the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla on my dark circles, around the sides of my nose, and in any other spot that needs a little bit of coverage, like a pimple or hyperpigmentation. Here's the truth -- you don't need to look like you're wearing a mask, so use it sparingly, and don't be afraid to let your real skin show through. And that's that.
Next, after curling my lashes, I swipe on tons of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, which does wonders for my lashes. They look volumized, lengthened, and separated, plus there's only a tiny bit of flaking towards the end of the day.
Following that I take a big fluffy brush and use the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Medium/Deep to warm up my complexion. It's pretty dark, but I find that it suits my olive-toned skin and the matte finish makes it look incredibly natural. I like to brush this on the edges of my face/where the sun would hit, paying special attention to the top of my forehead, my temples, and my nose. It's also important to bronze up your neck, so your face doesn't look like a completely different color.
After that I grab my Milani Rose Powder Blush in Coral Cove (full review here) and dab that on the apples of my cheeks then sweep it towards my temples. This creates a bright glow that's stunning in the warmer months.
To finish up I take the Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Pango Peach and dab it on my lips. This looks amazing layered over orange, peach, or coral lipstick, but it looks gorgeous and sheer on its own as well. It pairs really well with the blush and adds a shimmery touch to the look.
What's your go-to spring look?
