Spring is perfect for a few bold and bright shades in makeup. Here’s a neutral look splashed with a pop of color I created. The products I used are in parenthesis. You can also simplify this look by skipping the crease color and using only one eyeshadow, either the medium shade or the lightest shade on the lid; you’ll still get the pop of color.
Face: Use a light-weight foundation to provide an even base. (Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation)
Concealer: Use concealer only if you need it. (Kat Von D Lock-It Tatto Concealer)
Cheeks: A soft pink blush gives checks a bit of color without competing with the overall look. A swipe of bronzer can also be used in place of blush to provide a subtle hint of color. (Nars Blush in Douceur)
Eyes Primer: This step is optional, however it does keep the eyeshadow from creasing (Too Faced Shadow Insurance)
Eyeshadows: Use neutral colored eyeshadows, one light, one medium and one dark. Pat the medium shade on the lid and use the darker shade in the crease. The lightest shade, also known as a highlight shade, should be used just underneath the brows and make sure to blend well. (Urban Decay Naked 3: Trick (lid), Factory (crease), and Strange (highlight).
Eyeliner: Line the top lid with black liner and the bottom with a blue. (Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Jet Black and Maybelline Master Drama Chromatics in Blast of Blue)
Mascara: One to two coats of your favorite mascara (Milani Total Lash Cover Mascara with 3 Zone Brush)
Brows: Shade in brows with powder (Merle Norman Natural Brow Powder)
Lips: Choose a bold lip color, preferably pink, coral, or orange (Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Tart)
