I have started to wear spring clothes, when the weather permits, and brighter colors. Something just seemed wrong. My makeup was still in winter mode. I needed a lighter approach and brighter colors.
I've often read about Tarte cheek stain in magazines. I checked it out at Sephora and it was just what I was looking for. The product is a gel stick with a transparent sort of color that looks very natural, like a bit of sun or natural blush on your cheek. I find the surface area of the stick to be a bit large so I apply the gel to my cheeks with my fingers rather than stick to cheek. This stain looks great on bare skin or over tinted moisturizer. I highly recommend this product.
Now my lips needed some attention. I shy away from bold lip color but I needed some color in a desperate way. I think it is a matte formula that I don't like or anything too thick or opaque. These are the three lip colors I'm using now. MAC See Sheer, a Lustre lipstick. Laura Mercier, Apricot and Rose Hydratints which give your lips a color tint but are very sheer.
Now my make up Spring ready. My eye makeup has lightened up a bit too but I love playing up my blue eyes.
What are your Spring makeup tricks?
