My Spring Go To Makeup Colors

Anyone else enjoying the change that Spring brings?

I sure am!

When I think of Spring, I think of soft color, fun and fresh!

And I definitely like to have some fun and translate that to my makeup routine!

Although I refuse to follow makeup trends and those awful do's and don'ts (I'll wear a wine lip in the middle of summer if I want to!), I do find myself doing an "ode" to each season in my makeup routine every so often.


And today is one of those days!

My all time favorite Spring makeup colors are hands downs purples, lavenders and a tad bit of burgundy.


Can you blame me? 

I'm a brown eyed girl and these colors are just perfect for making them brown peepers stand out!





Here are the colors I used on my eyes and lips:


LIPS: L'oreal Lipstick in Fairest Nude and Ulta Brilliant Color Gloss #12

*I applied the lipstick first and then applied just a bit of lipgloss to add shine and color. I love this lip gloss because of its versatility: apply lightly for a stain type color and apply more for a dramatic wine lip!

EYES: Ulta Zephyr on my lids and MAC Sketch on the outer V and blended into the crease

*I barely applied MAC's Sketch and made sure to blend it well with my lid color to soften it's tone. This is a typical winter color but you can see how you can make it work with a little blending.

I also incorporated both eyeshadows on my lower lashline.

EYELINER: Urban Decay Eyeliner in Zero smudged with a charcoal eyeshadow from one of my Coastal Scents palettes.

*Smudging black liner with a charcoal eyeshadow is my trick to avoiding a stark line, which is the perfect technique for those spring makeup looks.


And there you have it! My go to Spring makeup look!

I'm a brown eyed girl too, and I also love lavender/purple shades for the eyes. I love seeing your makeup tips and you're so cute too! I've never tried Urban Decay products but I keep hearing how good they are. I may have to give them a try. :)

You're so sweet, Lisa..thank you!!
That's so cool that we share the same love of purple!! I think you will love Urban Decay..their eyeshadows are extremely pigmented!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thanks, Amy!! I used to really pile it on the eyes but have started to lighten things up a bit :)
