Spring Make-Up

What are you wearing for Spring?

Not just on your body, but on your face?  You don’t want to be sporting your Winter look around town, it’s a little much for all the sunshine and warm weather.  No one wants to see a heavy smoky eye during the day when you’re out among the tulips.

Think warm thoughts when you go shopping for a Spring makeup palette.  Whip out your pinks, purples, {yes, sparkly purple eyeliner is h-o-t} and blues.  Seriously, blues.  There’s no need to whip out your Wet n’ Wild from High School, but blue eyeliner can really bring out a little va-va-voom in your blue eyes.

Go lighter with your nail polish too.  Bright, bold colors are totally in right now and nail polish is a great way to go lighter with your style.  You wouldn’t wear Orange on your face {I hope} but no one will blink if you put it on your toenails.  And if they do, blink that is, they’re not girlfriends you want to be getting a pedicure with anyway.

This is my general makeup palette, but I wear light almost iridescent colors in the Spring and Summer.  Keep it simple, light, and fresh now that the sun is finally coming out.  Go a little crazy with color- banish the greys to the back corner of the closet with your Winter clothes, where they won’t see the light of day until Fall.

Making Up For Spring

When March hits and I’ve had it with Winter, the first thing I reach for is a bottle of bright nail polish to paint my toes. Sometimes I’m even so sick of covering up that I pull out the open-toed shoes when the slush is still four inches deep--like I can change the weather with the Force of Footwear.
