As the weather gets warmer, we’re switching up our winter coats for pretty florals and pastels. With a new spring wardrobe, it’s important to change your makeup to match the vibrant colors of spring. Aside from new colors for eye shadow and lipstick, it’s always important to keep a bright, cheery face by using blush.
I love different shades of apricot and peach on everyone. Blush is important to give you a fresh, spring-ready face. It’s best to use a highlighter along with a blush. For highlighter, use any light shimmery face cream or powder. Pat the highlighter down the middle of the nose and on top of the cheekbones. Then the blush goes on the apple of your cheeks giving you a dewy, fresh look. With a shimmer, you’re going to have a glow about you that looks fabulous!
I recommend using apricot with a tint of gold on the apple of your cheeks to enhance your look. Many people think that darker skin tones won’t be able to show off shimmer, but the truth is copper skin makes shimmer look even better. I recommend blushes such as Chanel’s Joues Contraste Blush in Espiegle or MAC’s Mineralize Blush in Petticoat for the perfect combination of apricot and gold.
A major concern I hear about blush that it can fade quickly, or doesn’t last long enough. If you’re experiencing this issue be sure to use a spray on primer once you’re done with applying makeup to keep everything in place. I recommend Urban Decay’s All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray or Makeup Forever’s Mist and Fix Primer Spray. Both will keep your look in place and make your beauty last all day and night!
Other than keeping your look natural and fresh with blush, what other types of makeup do you go to add a touch of spring to your look?
