Spring to me reads – beautiful skin, fresh makeup with a pop of color. Gone are the days of those grundy makeup looks. Neutral eyes, sun kissed glow and va va voom lashes, and that gorgeous pout is everything you’d be needing this spring.
Sunscreen : With sun shining bright in your face, you need to take care of your skin. But me being guilty of not using sunscreen, I prefer a tinted moisturizer with Spf it’s like killing two birds with one stone.
My favorites : Laura Mercier Tint Moisturizer, Bobbi Brown CC Cream, Tatcha Sunscreen (best sunscreen, EVER!)*
Cream & Liquid Highlighters : Now I’m not too much into bronzing since I tan pretty much even in the dark, I mean you get me, I’m asian that too Indian the tiniest ray of sun can make me look like a roasted chicken. So I’m all about that glow. This is where liquid illuminators come in to my life. They are perfect to add that sun kissed glow and giving the illusion of well rested skin.
My favorites : Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess illuminator*, Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector, Pixi Glowtion Day Dew (not really an illuminator but a perfect skin pick me up glow), Algenist Reveal Conc. Luminizing Drops in Champagne*.
Setting Sprays & Face Mists : Not only they inject that “glow”, and perk up the complexion but they really do help keep the makeup stay in place.
My Favorites : Mac Fix+, Urban Decay All Nighter*, The Body Shop Vit C Face Mist, Armani Prima refreshing make mist* MUN Anarose face mist.
Cream Blushes : I don’t know whats with the cream blushes flush, it’s so natural and stunning! And makes everything look so glow-y and season pretty.
My Favorites : Burberry Cream blush in Poppy, Top Shop Blush In head over heals, Trestique Bora Bora Coral Blush*, Wander Beauty On the go Blush in soft pink.
Water Proof Eye liners and Mascara : With sweaty eye lids, and warm sunshine, water proof liners and mascara’s are inevitable. So you don’t have to worry about your liner/mascara melting off and making you look like a panda.
My Favorites : Marc Jacobs Highliner, Estee Lauder Waterproof Liner*, Tom Ford Eyeliner, Tarte Tartiest dual intensity Liner Urban Decay Perversion, Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious, Estee Lauder Waterproof Mascara*
Bright Lip Colors : Spring is all about that fresh, bright bold pout and occasionally a pretty nude lip. And I love pairing up neutral/bronzy eyes with, fuchsia pink, bright corals and sometimes a kiss of neutral berry tones.
My Favorites : Nars Dolce Vita, TomFord Aphrodite*, Nyx Milan Soft Matt Lipcream, Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Lip and Cheek Glow in Fuchsia Lights*, YSL Tint-in-oil in No.6, Mac Mehr, Trestique Florence Fig* Jouer Petal De Rose(gorgeous neutral pink), Jouer Cerise (discontinued).
