DIY Spring Makeup Look

This Spring it's all about pastels and the color blue.  The holographic and mermaid looks have kind of died down, and whilst some still like the 'blinding highlight', many are going for an 'au natural' look instead.  I chose the following products from my makeup stash to create this look:

  • MAC Prep + Prime Base
  • Dior Forever Foundation
  • MAC Concealer
  • Coty Airspun
  • NARS Bronzer in Laguna
  • NARS Blush in Orgasm
  • NARS Highlighter in Forte de France
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Whiz
  • The BrowGal Brow Gel
  • Lord & Berry Black Liner
  • Natasha Denona Tropic Palette
  • Urban Decay Ultra Gloss

I started with a blank canvas.  Lots of texture to my face, if you know what I mean, heh!

I started with the base, and applied it with my fingers.  Everything else, I used brushes.  

As far as the Tropic Palette, I used 'Pastel Melon' as my transition shade', and followed a little bit lower with 'Sahara'.  I took a shade brush and applied 'Laguna' all over my lid.  I applied 'Coco' in my outer V and on my lower lash line and buffed it out.  I blended it all out with 'Fake Tan' to complete the eye look.  

Can we just take a minute to appreciate the highlighter, too?  It's a wet-looking highlighter and it compliments my skin-tone so well.  It's g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s!  I found this highlighter on Sephora through a website called Wikibuy, and because of them, I found a coupon code where the Urban Decay lipgloss was free with purchase.  

Wikibuy operates as a website and Chrome extension that finds you the best deals across the web on products you love!  You definitely need to check it out.  

I used the Lord & Berry black liner for a thin line on top and in my bottom water line.  I completed the look with a layer of the gloss.

Is this a look that you are going to try?  What are your favorite springtime colors?
