SPRING FACE

Spring time is the best time to go all out. Go all out with show stopping jewelry, bold lip colors and cute as f*** hairstyles. Who cares what anyone else says about your aesthetic – Spring time is the time to be as carefree and as ‘IDGAF’ as you want. An in-your-face floral crown? WHY NOT? A vibrant red lip during the day? YES PLEASE.

FACE #1

No need to hide away your red lippies for the Spring! Wear them red lips all year round if you want to because you SLAY in it. Finish the look with statement sunglasses; the perfect accessory that says I won’t bother you if you don’t bother me.

FACE #2

The classic florals in spring trend will never go out of style so it’s time to just embrace it. Channel your inner Lana Del Rey and go OTT with a floral crown and toughen your look up with a bad ass Septum. What says “I’m undecided about how I feel about Spring” more than this look?!

FACE #3

For those girlies who love a guaranteed head-turning Springtime look, go with some loose curls and a pair of statement sunnies. Go with a lip that lets your hair have all the glory. I mean, who can say no to being sun-safe and having hair so on point?

GET THE LOOK: Spring Makeup

Now that the gloomy days are over and spring time is finally here, the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of spring is not only the beautiful flowers that are beginning to bloom but all of the bright pastel colors that seem to appear everywhere from department stores to grocery stores. Like it or not, they’re everywhere and we cannot escape it but hopefully you won’t feel the need to escape this cute little makeup pictorial that I’ve got for you! Yes, I did incorporate a pop of color just to get into the spirit of Spring but you can use something different if you’d like (BOOOOOO!!! haha jk) However, I do highly suggest that you live a little and just add the pop of color, dammit! 😉 Anyways, here is a cute and simple look that anyone can rock during the day (minus the dramatic lashes) or at night. Let’s get started!

I used the Monarch Eyeshadow Palette by Kat Von D for this whole entire makeup look but you can use whatever you have. There are a ton of dupes for the colors in this palette so feel free and get creative!

STEP 1: After applying an eyeshadow primer/base, apply a matte cream colored shadow onto the brow bone and blend it down towards the crease. I used the shade “Tiny Death.”

STEP 2: Apply a light brown shade into the crease. This shade will act as a “transition” shade to help blend all of the colors seamlessly. I used the shade “Killing Jar.”

STEP 3: Blend a warm medium orange brown shade onto the outer V and in towards the crease. Focus the color more onto the outer V. I used the shade “Deadhead.”

STEP 4: Apply a gold color onto the lid. I used the shade “Disintegration.”

STEP 5: Apply any eyeliner of your choice onto the bottom waterline and slightly onto the lash line. I chose this BEAUTIFUL turquoise eyeliner by Milani Liquid Eye in shade “04 Aqua.” After applying the eyeliner of your choice (a bright purple would be pretty as well) smudge it with either a pencil brush, your finger, or a cotton swab. Make sure that you work fast because this stuff dries quick and stays put for hours!

STEP 6: Curl your eyelashes and apply mascara.

STEP 7: Apply eyeliner and false eyelashes (optional). I used my favorite KoKo eyelashes in “Goddess.”

And your look is complete! I hope you all enjoyed this simple makeup look with a nice pop of color. If I’m not mistaken, it kind of looks like an ocean sunset right? haha! The best part is that you can use any eyeliner or eyeshadow that you like with this look and it would still look awesome! Anyway, I hope you all give this look a try and #GoldSoulista so I can see how it turns out. Have a beautiful day everyone. Until next time, stay weird my friends =)

xoxo,

Jenn
