Monochromatic Peach and Bushy Brow Spring Look

I’ve been loving both the untamed, bushy brows that have been popping up all over the runway and the peachy tones that have been making a comeback for spring.

I am really digging these warm tones.

Peach tones give a beautiful sunset effect on the face.

Before buying the peach tones brands have launched, I looked through my collection and found some forgotten great makeup.

That face glow is really coming through.

During a sale, I picked up some peach tones ColourPop Super Shock matte shadows. To give more of a glow, I pulled out some Makeup Geek Duochrome shadows that were sitting in a forgotten magnetic palette.

I used Mai Tai all over the lid with I’m Peachless in the center for a soft spotlight effect.

For the messy brow, I used the Benefit Goof Proof pencil in shade 6 to fill them in a bit and then used the Gimme Brow, brushing the hairs in upward strokes and then using a brow brush to lay down the hairs that seemed too out of place.

I’m living for this color.

ColourPop also recently launched their monochromatic collections. I really liked the swatches of Jacquard online. In person, it’s much more of a bright coral. It was much brighter than what I like to wear. So to tone it down, I laid down a base of Chi Lippie Stix, which is a neutral light brown pencil. Then, I used a lip brush to apply and mix in Jacquard. Boom. The muted coral I was looking for!

I really loved how this turned out and will probably be playing a lot with peach tones through Spring.



Soft Pink Weekend Glam

Lately, I’ve been wearing a lot of warmer tones paired with nude lips. That makes for great, easy every day looks but I wanted to venture into my cooler toned shadows and pops of color.

I decided to go for pink toned shadows from the Lorac Pro palette blended with Bitten from Makeup Geek to bring in subtle red tones (yes, red compliments cool pinks beautifully). I also did a natural eyeliner look right against the top lashline and the outer corner of the bottom lashline.

Red shadows can be applied carefully and blended to make a great daytime look.

All week, I’ve been sporting nudes and browns on the lips. Time for a pop of color.

Also, I got a new haircut and am 100% in love.

Voila! Daytime friendly pinky/red eye look.

Purple Shadow Look ft. Kat Von D Metal/Matte Palette

If the side-eye emoji wore purple shadow.

My sister got me the Kat Von D Metal/Matte Palette for Christmas, and I’m 100% in love. The purples, which are always such tricky shadows to formulate and work with, are absolutely divine.
