Spring 2015 Makeup Shakeup

Spring time means that it is once again time to switch up my seasonal makeup. For warmer months I like dewey looking skin, purple eyeshadows, bright bold lips, fuller looking lashes, and crisp fresh scents!

Dewey Skin

When it comes to dewey looking skin this primer is my secret weapon. Its the L'Oréal Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer. I don't know what it is about this stuff but it makes my skin look amazing! It doesn't make my skin look sparkly (or like I have recently joined a Twilight vampire coven). It reflects light from the skin to give it a more luminous look. I just apply this primer to the center of my forehead, bridge of my nose, cupid's bow, cheekbones, and center of my chin. You can also mix this with your foundation for a dewey look all over. 

Purple Eyeshadows

During the spring is when I whip out the purple eyeshadows. I have brown eyes so purple really makes them pop. I recently picked up the MAC Purple Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette and have been loving it! MAC eyeshadows have crazy pigmentation and I love the variety of shadows this palette offers. Another great purple eyeshadow that I love using when I am in a rush is the Laura Mercier Metallic Créme Eye Colour in Alloy. These creme eyeshadows are AMAZING and I love the color payoff, especially of this color. Alloy is a silvery purple color that looks amazing on the eyelids on its own. I know I will be using it in a Spring Makeup Look post I will be doing on the blog later on this month! 

Bright Bold Lips

I love a good bright bold lip and during the spring I especially love them because I don't feel weird sporting a bright pink or red lip during the daytime. Spring is the time of year where I start adding more color back into my makeup look because I am one of those boring people that once winter hits I tend to stick with the same neutral brown eye and light pink lip look for a while. For this spring I am OBSESSED with this Lipstick Queen Endless Summer Lipstick in Aloha. I love Lipstick Queen lipsticks and this one is hands down my favorite. Just the bright orange packaging of this makes me feel brighter and the lipstick color itself is great because it is buildable. 

Fuller Looking Lashes

I know you were probably expecting a mascara and not an eyeliner for the fuller looking lashes section, but hear me out. Spring and summer is the time of year when I tight line my upper water line to make my lashes appear fuller. I don't know why I don't do this as much during the fall and winter (probably because I have a justifiable fear of poking my eye out with my eyeliner) but during the spring I start to get back into tight lining. My favorite black eyeliner for tight lining my upper lashes is Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero.

Crisp Fresh Scents 

One of my new favorite spring scents that I picked up is the Tory Burch Perfume. I expected this scent to be more floral when I first picked it up to try it out and was surprised when I got more of a crisp, fresh fruity scent. I picked it up in a rollerball so I can throw it into my purse easily and go! Next time you are at Sephora I strongly urge you to give this perfume a sniff, it may surprise you!

  6. Ohh how much I love purple eyeshadows! I love Cherry Cordial from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar and I'm afraid that I might hit pan on it soon. Although, we're just getting into fall where I live but I think purple works all year around, right? :) x
