The color of 2013 is green. Embrace the trend with a soft green and blue eye with a bright, springy feel. Start by applying eye shadow base or cream concealer all over the lid to prevent creasing. Using an eye shadow brush, first apply a soft blue eye shadow to the inner corner (from NARS MAD MAD WORLD EYE SHADOW DUO). On the other half of the eye, apply the green shadow (we also love NARS CELEBRATE SOFT TOUCH SHADOW PENCIL). Blend in and overlap a portion of the blue shadow to create an ombre effect. To keep the look fresh, finish the eyes with L’OREAL VOLUMINOUS MASCARA. Finish this fresh look with BOBBI BROWN PEONY BLUSH and PINK PEONY LIP COLOR.
Lips ahoy! Set sail this spring with hot hues. To get the look, apply concealer over entire lip (this will help the color last) and apply a super matte red lipstick like MAC RUBY WOO, a bold pink like NARS FUNNY FACE SEMI MATTE LIPSTICK or something in between (we love MAC KOREAN CANDY SHEEN SUPREME LIPSTICK). And BOBBI BROWN’S IT PINKS AND HOT RED combo’s are perfect! A bold lip is best balanced with a minimal eye—apply a little mascara and add concealer under the eye for pop.
Be a doll and add luxe lashes to amp up your beauty look this season. Start with a set of great lashes—we love MAC, Make Up For Ever and Christian Dior. Use a nude eye shadow to allow the lashes to be the focus. Apply fake lashes and add L’OREAL VOLUMINOUS MASCARA for a little extra oomph. BOBBI BROWN BIKINI PINK LIP COLOR with a nude lip gloss adds a little shine to this clean, but edgy look.
Apply a grey cream base like BENEFIT COSMETICS STRUT all over lid. Add a grey shadow like MAC CINDERFELLA MINERALIZE EYE SHADOW on top with a brush. Apply both under the bottom lash line. Use a liquid or cream eye liner like NARS EYELINER STILO. Finish with L’OREAL VOLUMINOUS MASCARA and to emphasis the eye, add a nude or soft pink lip.
Emphasize your brows for added drama, but keep them natural with a lighter but similar color to your brow hair. Pictured above are our favorites: MAC PAINTSTICK and MAC PRO PALETTE REFILLS.
The fresh face never goes out of style. This season, we’re adding a pop of pink to add a little more spring in your step. Prep the face with a great moisturizer like EMBRYOLISSE. Apply a light foundation or tinted moisturizer. Apply a soft pink cream shadow or blush on eye lid and cheeks (we used LANCOME’S FRAMBOISE FLIRT BLUSH PALETTE and MAC ROSY OUTLOOK PRO LONGWEAR BLUSH). Apply a soft pink lip gloss like MAC FLESHPOT LIP STICK to finish the look.
