Spring is here (finally), and even though there may be April showers, that doesn’t mean you can’t look like you got a little sun! Add warmth, definition and a little glow with a bronze and peach palette.
Follow these 4 simple steps for a luminous spring face:
Light Glow. Use a sheer peach blush like Benefit CORALista (4) and blend across your cheekbones with an open kabuki brush, then lightly sweep over the chin, nose and forehead to add warmth. The golden undertones in peach look great on all skin tones and harmonize beautifully with bronze shades.
Yahoo—it’s spring! And, for those lucky enough to have a spring break, we put together a list of makeup basics that will barely take up any room in your bag.
After a day at the beach skip the full face of makeup and go for sun-kissed skin with a little pop of color on your eyes, lips or cheeks.
Here are 6 portable and pretty products that will cover your basic beauty needs:
Skin. Foundation bottles can be bulky and messy when traveling, pack a squeeze tube concealer like Makeup Forever Full Cover Concealer (1) and use as a concealer or foundation. Use your mini foundation brush (2) to spot conceal red areas and if you want to use all over your face simply mix in a dab of your face lotion to create a sheer foundation.
Lip and Cheek. Lipstick doesn’t do well in the heat, so grab a colorful lip balm like Pixi Succulent Lip Twin (3) that is made with essential oils to hydrate lips with a beautiful pop of color to show off tanned skin. Bonus: The cap of this balm contains a matching cheek cream!
Bronzer. Wearing sunblock on your face (and re-applying every 2 hours) is a must-do, but you can easily create a sun-kissed face with a few sweeps of matte bronzer. Choose a water-proof powder to avoid melt downs and sweep over the high points of your face (cheekbones, bridge of nose, chin, forehead) with your mini face brush. Try Tarte Amazonian Clay Mineral Bronzer (4).
