Spring has sprung!!! And who could not use a $350 giveaway to jumpstart your Spring/Summer shopping. My picks? Load up on maxi dresses, flowy blouses, sandals and of course makeup/skincare! My favorite Spring 2015 makeup trend is fresh, dewy skin. I’m not talking about the “Girl, you need to blot” dewy skin. I’m talking makeup that mimics “fresh, dewy skin” that can fool even a seasoned makeup artist. Here’s how:
1.) Start with clean, hydrated skin.
2.) Choose a foundation or a foundation substitute. The key is that it provides a light, semi matte (satin) finish. My picks are It Cosmetics CC Cream and Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue. For light coverage use your fingers or a Beauty Blender sponge. For fuller coverage buff your foundation into your skin lightly with a flat kabuki brush, Pro Tip: To pump up the dewiness you can also add a tiny drop of a liquid brightener/illuminator.
3.) Conceal lightly if needed and then set if you have to.
4.) When setting don’t use a powder that provides more coverage or mattifies because that can take you to cake town and/or take you to completely matte. Instead opt for one that corrects imperfections like MAC’s Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting Loose Powder in Adjust.
5.) To amp up the dewiness I opt for highlighters that contain little to n shimmer/glitter to highlight the high points (forehead, bridge of the nose, top of the cheeks and cupid’s bow) of my face. Pro Tip: You can use a matte eyeshadow in a shade that is one to two shades lighter instead of running out and buying a separate highlighter.
There you have it! Perfectly dewy Spring skin! Pair your fresh skin look with some fabulous pastels and your set for Easter! Hurry up and enter our $350 Giveaway. All of the details are in the Rafflecopter Widget below.
