We’ve been experiencing winter-like weather conditions here in Michigan although it’s the first week of March. We’ve been getting blasted with snow storms and blistering cold temperatures. Simply Dreadful!!! Where the hell is Spring?!!! Meanwhile, I’ve been desperately seeking spring. So, I decided to channel Spring without Mother Nature and have fun with some bright colors. This playful look is super easy to create. So, let’s jump right into it!!!
Start with a clean and moisturized face as usual. I moisturized with MAC Strobe Cream ($33). I also buffed in a thick layer of Nars Orgasm illuminator ($30) which created a super dewy look. The goal is to appear as if you are glowing from within.
I filled in my eyebrows with MAC Spiked brow pencil ($18). For a more defined appearance I cleaned up my brows with MAC Studio Finish Concealer ($21). I finished my brows off with a coat of clear brow gel from Anastasia Beverly Hills ($22). My brows are bullet proof with this brow gel.
I used two layers of my favorite foundation, MAC Face and Body ($28). Face and Body combined with Nars illuminator creates a super dewy and radiant look. I highlighted with NARS creamy concealer ($30), which I set with Ben Nye banana powder ($8)
While baking the highlighted areas of my face, I set the non-highlighted areas of my face with MAC mineralize skin finish ($34). I warmed my face up with MAC Blunt Blush ($23). I dusted off the remaining banana powder and applied a crazy amount of Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter ($7.89) on the highest point of my cheeks. For a flushed look I applied NARS Orgasm blush ($30) to my cheeks.
Now it’s time for the star of the show!!! I used a limited edition MAC quad eyeshadow palette that I’ve had for the past 5 years. This palette contains copper, orange, cream and peach eyeshadows. For this look I used the orange and copper shades only. You can use any orange and copper eyeshadow you have. I used the orange shade as my transition color between my brow bone and lid. I applied the copper shade wet to my lid. Applying the shadow wet intensifies it. I blended both colors on my lower lash line as well. I double stacked my favorite Ardell Lashes ($2.99). I applied one coat of Too Faced Better than Sex mascara ($23) prior to applying my lashes. With an eyeliner brush I applied the copper shadow wet to my waterline. I applied three coats of Better than Sex mascara to my bottom lashes.
I decided to keep my lips simple to allow the focus to remain on my eyes. I applied two coats of MAC Bountiful lipgloss ($21).
