Transitioning from Winter to Spring: Fresh Skin and Peach Lips

 

spring

With spring right around the corner, we thought it was time to create a fresh makeup look to match the season. Although, us Brits know that regardless of the official calendar date for spring, it doesn’t mean we’re going to miraculously get warmer weather. Nonetheless, we can’t help but get excited since we love the makeup trends for this season so much! Whether you feel like doing a ‘no-makeup’ look or prefer bright bold colours; spring is the perfect time to experiment.

For this tutorial, we decided to go for a radiant complexion with peach lips. Keep reading to discover the steps and products you need for this gorgeous look.

Base

Before applying any makeup, make sure to prep your skin with 15% Vitamin C to provide your skin with complete protection against free radical damage. This serum will work to repair and strengthen skin cells whilst also helping to brighten your complexion.

Now for the makeup…

For this look, we wanted light and fresh looking skin. So, the Tinted Primer SPF 30 is the best face primer for the job. Apply it all over your face using the Dual Foundation/Camouflage Brush to subtly even out your complexion. This makeup primer helps you take the coverage down a notch without having to sacrifice a smooth complexion. However, if you do prefer a little more coverage, you can add Pressed Base on top. Use the Ultra Brush to sweep a light layer of this mineral powder foundation on top of the Tinted Primer for a natural, flawless skin finish.

To give your skin that flushed and rosy glow, dab Cream Blush in Guava to the apples of the cheeks and blend out towards your temples.

Eyes

Eye makeup in our opinion is always the best, most fun part. So let’s get cracking.

First, apply Cream Stay Shadow Stick in Beam all over the lid and up to the brow bone. To add more depth, use the Texture Eye Brush to sweep Eye Shadow in Haze into the crease of your eye. Follow this up by taking the shade Breathless from the Elemental Eye Collection and intensifying your crease with the Eye Definer Brush. You can also add a touch of this shade to your brow bone and the inner corner of your eye. This will intensify the cream eyeshadow highlight shade previously applied. Finally, take the shade Relic from the Elemental Eye Collection with the Crease Brush. Then softly drag it across the upper and lower lashlines for added dimension.

For your lashes, apply Lash Boosting Mascara in Black. Starting at the base, wiggle the wand back and forth through your lashes for an even coat on both the upper and lower lashlines.

Lips

Finish off this spring makeup look by adding Cream Glaze Crayon in Mimosa to your lips.
