Don't get me wrong, I do not have the pleasure of being in Spring but I kind of feel like it is with all of the spring-inspired makeup looks going around lately. If you can't tell I am quite big in "matching" my makeup to the seasons but I can easily forget which season I am actually in, especially when I barely see any autumny looks going around.
Anyway, without meaning to on this day I was just applying my eyeshadow without really thinking of the outcome in the end, but I ended up with loving this combo! Although the eyes did not end up turning rose gold like they did in the jar, it still looked pretty. Paired with a very light blush and bolder lip added to the springy look.
Face: Rimmel Wake Me Up & Bourjois Healthy Mix fdtn. Bourjois Delice de Soleil bronzer, MAC Lightscapade. Topshop cream blush in Head Over Heels, Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso.
Eyes: Vanity Palette Matte Highlight shade [inner half of lid], Random rose-gold pigment [outer half of lid], MAC Golden Olive Pigment [crease], Wet n Wild Vanity Palette Dark Brown [Lower lash line],
Vanity Palette Highlight shade [highlight]. Maybelline Master Precise Eyeliner, Prestige Brow Duo [highlighting colour, waterline]. Max Factor False Lash Effect & Maybelline One By One
Lips: Nyx Lip liner in Pinky, Milani lipstick in Rosehip, Nyx Chrome Eyeshadow in white [middle of lower lip].
I feel like the lip colour definetly added to the spring feeling, and the chrome eyeshadow that I dabbed on the center of my lips made the colour look less bright pink & more fuchsia while "plumping" up my lips.
Does anyone else in the Southern Hemisphere have the same problem as me with getting too inspired by everyone else's season to stick with their own? Or do you not really care if your makeup matches in with the season or not, for example wearing dark smoky eyes & wine coloured lips when it is summer, or barely there light makeup for winter?
And if you probably didn't see my last post the Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag I had a sort of big announcement which I am so excited about.
and I have some pretty exciting news :) I will most likely be going on a
spending ban (awesome specials & the absolute essentials not
included haha) as I had to shell out for a new passport... because my
Fiancee and I have finally booked our holiday to America in July!! We
have been talking about it for years so now that we've booked our
flights and started on our hotels I am getting excited because it's
actually going to happen!
the main reason for my spending ban is because obviously because I am
going to take a huge advantage of everything we get taxed so hard for...
makeup, beauty, clothes, shoes.....and hopefully not go too much over
the luggage limit haha.
already planning what I want to buy and what I will need to to take...
it is going to be hard to select extremely minimal makeup that I can
