Spring is right around the corner. So lets roll into some Spring makeup and transitional makeup to give you a bit of color but not too much. As you know I'm a huge fan of color but with spring I think of pastel bright shades in greens, lavender, light blues, light pinks, and pale yellows. When I think of makeup I think of bright coral lips, bright pinks, and lilac shades. So it's more than being just colorful, it's the right shades of color. However, I'm not here to tell you what you can and can't wear as I myself tend to break any makeup rules there might possibly be out there. I have no problem wearing a navy blue or black lip in the dead of summer. So whatever floats your boat but for the sake of Spring colors lets have fun with some spring shades.
The picture about is a Spring Transition look as I like to call it. It has a pop of color but very neutral as well.
Top lid: MUG Voltage (inner half) Mocha, Corrupt (outer color of lid), Cocoa Bear (crease) Chickadee (crease)
Lash line: Dragon Fly, and a bit of Corrupt on the outer part of the lower lash line.
Lashes: Violet Voss Just Slayin 3D Faux Mink lashes
ABH: Brow Definer in Dark Brown
You could trade out that lower lash line with any other bright shade. I think an orange shade or periwinkle or lavender would be just as pretty.
Next up is adding a super colorful bright lip to a toned down neutral eye. I chose a red/coral lip for this. The eyes are nothing special just a warm brown in the crease and a light shimmery lid. The lips are Colour Pop Satin Liquid Lipstick in Cozy. Which is very similar to Colour Pop Matte liquid lip in Succulent. Only Succulent is more red and Cozy has a bit more orange. Both are bright as can be and gorgeous. I prefer the Satin formula more though.
Here we have some INTENSE color. I know it's super colorful and not everyone would wear it but when I think of Spring I think of two things color, and the fact that you can use more makeup in the Spring than the Summer. In Summer I feel like less is better because everything just melts off your face and feels super heavy. Things run and move around, so in the Spring I feel like you can get away with more.
This look is:
Sauce Box Temptation Palette for the whole thing. You could add or take away things from this obviously. The blue in this reminds me of Neptune from MUG so that's an option if you don't want the palette. Also the orange reminds me of Dark Mango from Coastal Scents. So these shadows can be duped. The yellow I can't really dupe cause it's so hard to find super pigmented yellows. The only other one I have that would work is from the Melt Radioactive stack. If you wanted it to be more toned down then Yellow Brick Road from MUG would work I think.
So this look has more color and brighter colors on the lids and lips. This is full blown spring and summer in my opinion. Not transition with a pop of color just all color. The lips are Colour Pop ultra matte liquid lipstick in Pacific that is a bright orange.
The eyes are:
Colour Pop shadows: Fantasy, Heat, and Animal
You can also use a bit of black to deepen that outer corner if you want.
Koko Lashes in Foxy
This is the final look. It's very iridescent and pale colors. With a duo chrome pigment. It's just an "enchanting" look in my opinion. The lip I went with is dark purple but you could use literally a ton of shades with this like pale peaches, lavenders, pinks, nudes, even coral in my opinion. The dark lip just helps balance out the look I think.
MUG shadows in Mai Tai (inner corner) Wisteria (crease and lower lash line) a bit of Corrupt on the outer corner. Pigment in Hologram applied with a damp brush in the center and inner part of the lower lash line.
