Soft Spring Makeup Tutorial

Spring in New York City can be quite tricky to navigate. Not only is the weather a complete basket case. but we are also caught somewhere in between the monochromatic, neutral Winter looks and the fun, vibrant Summer shades. However, updating your makeup wardrobe this season can be as simple as revisiting those metallic gold and champagne eyeshadows or adventuring out into the world of neon lippies. By using this combination of neutrals and brights, you can effectively create a balanced look that isn't too overdone...well in my book at least.

Sidenote: Excuse the white cast underneath my eyes in this pictorial. I was at work prior to making this tutorial and had to wipe away my previous eye makeup. Unforunately, the eye makeup remover I use can leave a whitish powdery appearance on the skin when it is not washed away. However, I corrected that and my faded eyebrows when finishing up the rest of my makeup towards the very end.

1 Create a blank canvas by priming the lid with Mac Paint Pot in Soft Ochre.

2 Set the primer and brighten the lid and brow bone areas by applying Strange (ivory) from the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette with a fluffy eyeshadow brush.

3 Begin creating definition to the crease by sweeping Limit (light mauve) and Nooner (slightly darker mauve) from the Naked 3 Palette through the crease and outer V.

4 Further define the crease using Cherry Cordial (burgundy) from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette on a flatter, more defined fluffy crease brush to give you more precision. Also, I applied Stila Kitten Eyeshadow (champagne) to the lid with a flat synthetic brush that had been dampened using Inglot Duraline to give the eyeshadow a more metallic shine.

5 Using a pointed crease brush, I added the last bit of definition to the outer third of my crease using Triple Fudge (dark olive brown) from the Chocolate Bar Palette. Lastly, I added a bit more of Strange to my inner corner for a brightening effect and applied Red Cherry # 43 lashes.
