Spring Makeup Tutorial

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog, today’s post is going to be my take on a Spring makeup tutorial! When I think spring makeup, I think of fresh skin, more warm and neutral eyes, and a nude lip. I’m never really one for bright lips, but when I do go for them I try to use them more in the summer. For this makeup I really wanted to realize my idea of spring makeup and make it really wearable and fun to do. Check out my spring makeup tutorial below!

First off, here is a picture of me without any makeup on. Honestly I don’t really need to do a lot of makeup on a daily basis in my opinion, but on my days off when I have time in the morning to get ready I love doing a full face of makeup! My problem zones are the crazy redness all around and on my nose, as well as the circles under my eyes. Otherwise, I just like to have fun with my makeup and try new things!

The first products I use on my face are foundation and powder. These are two relatively new products to me and I’ve been using a brush to apply this foundation rather than my trusty beauty blender. The foundation I’ve been trying out is the Rimmel Lasting Finish in Light Ivory and I think it’s nice for springtime as it doesn’t feel heavy and it just seems to sink right into my skin with a natural finish. I applied that with the Sonja Kashuk Foundation brush #121. I’m trying to give my beauty blender a break and I feel like this brush helps my foundation go on better and look less cakey on my skin, especially around my nose. I’m also using the Maybelline FIT Me Pressed Powder in Porcelain and I’m applying this using an ELF Powder brush. So far I’m liking this powder, it’s not too cakey on my dry skin and it seems to help keep my makeup on longer.

Next up I used my Cover Girl blush in Rose Silk and applied it using my Real Techniques Face Brush. I love this color because it gives a rosy glow to my cheeks and makes me look a bit healthier. I also added some of my Benefit High Beam to give myself some highlight in places where the sun would naturally hit my face. I love using High Beam because it’s so easy to apply and blend, as well as leaves me with a natural looking highlight. I just blended this product using my fingers and my foundation brush.

Next up is eyes and I have to admit I used quite a few eye shadows, more than I normally would use! I started off with a base of Benefit Sugar Bomb, which yes I know it is a blush but it just looks so amazing on the eyes too. Then I went in with the Wet and Wild I’m Getting Sunburned palette and I mixed the pink shade and the gold shade and applied it to my lids. Lastly, I took the medium brown color from my Sephora Blinged Palette and put that in the crease of my eyes just to give my eyes a some more definition. I applied all of these shadows using my Real Techniques Eyeshadow brush.

The last steps for my eyes are to line my eyes using the Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Eye Liner, which I tried to keep the liner closer to the eyelash base than I usually do. Next up I used the Buxom Mascara on my eyelashes, which I have to say I love this mascara because it makes my lashes look so much longer! Lastly, I filled in my brows using the IT Cosmetics Universal Brow Powder. I love this product because it fills in my brows naturally and the color match is pretty on point.

The last step of my makeup is to put on some lipstick, and what would a makeup tutorial from me be without a mention of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream? I went with a nude color called Stockholm which is a gorgeous “your lips but better” shade and what I feel is perfect for some spring makeup.
