The spring makeup trend, according to Dolce & Gabbana, is feminine and playful – just choose to accentuate the eyes or lips! I’ve styled two looks with these four products. The left has a stronger eye to pair with nude lips, and the right is pared down to play up the bright pink lips. Below is a simple how-to:
“Tender” Eyeshadow Quad – beautiful, delicate lilac and blush tones.
The colors are buildable and semi-sheer. I’m glad there are two matte colors, as my eye shape can’t handle glittery eyeshadow (it makes my eyelids look like fish scales). The other two colors have a satin texture with a pretty, pearl sheen.
1) Apply the darkest color (lilac) on outer eyelid.
2) Dab the blush/taupe color near the inner eyelid.
3) Blend the shimmery pink/blush color into the middle of eyelid.
4) Highlight with the shimmery cream color below the eyebrow bone and inner corners of eyes.
“Shimmer” Glow Illuminating Powder – lovely subtle glow in a dusty rose hue.
Spring is all about illuminating the skin! This powder is light, and contrary to the name, it’s not “shimmery” in the traditional sense, and that’s what I love about it. Rather, the powder brightens up the skin with a more natural glow. Sweep upward above the cheekbones, and brush along the bridge of the nose.
Thank you for reading! xoxo Do you like the left or the right look more for spring?
