The weather in the Evergreen State is still rather wintery, but occassionally sun beams burst through the heavy grey clouds, making me search frantically for my sunglasses, long buried in the back of the drawer. The feeling of spring edging closer every day fills me with warm fuziness and I start digging through my collection for those brighter, more vivid, more... alive shades - just a small pick-me-up, really. Here are three different looks I came up with in the last couple of weeks for your enjoyment.
In the photo below, on the eyes I'm wearing Sleek's Oh So Special palette, a gorgeous mix of warm neutrals and corals & peaches, on the lips and cheeks an old favorite, The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain in Rose Pink. I got some rather condenscending remarks on it from a sales associate at Neiman Marcus ('What an INTERESTING eye look you're wearing...), but I still really like it, to be honest.
This is what I call my warm neutral look - one warm brown/copper eyeshadow all over the lid, darker brown at the lashline (Wet'n'Wild eyeshadow trios I have depotted into one palette), NYX blush in Peach on the cheeks and Stila Guava lipgloss on the lips; I hate that formulation, by the way.
Lastly, I've been enjoying wearing a bright colored eyeliner a lot recently, this kelly green is a NYX Slide On pencil in Esmeralda (review coming soon!) paired with Too Faced Natural Palette; I think the gold shade I used in the inner corner is called Honey Pot. I also applied The Body Shop Honey bronzer to warm up my deathly complexion.
What everyday looks have you been rocking recently? What are your favorite (early) Spring products?
