Spring Fresh Looks

 When it comes to Makeup there will always be the next best trend and those trends recycle every few years. I decided to share 2 soft looks that will brighten any skin tone using soft pinks and peaches.
Lips are a bit more sheer and glossy...eyes are pastel with a darker chocolate edge liner.

I create something I call a halo around the eye using a soft pink or peach eyeshadow and pencil brush.
This really helps to buff and smooth out the darker crease and liner shades. Its not so harsh and can be created with or without eyeliner.

To create this look I applied pink shadow on the lid and used a light brown crease.
I then added a dark bronze liner and smudged all way around the eye with a pencil brush. To add the "halo" effect use a soft pink shadow to smudge the dark liner... just around the edges. 
Finally, try a pearl shimmer on inner corners for a Moonlit Glow.
I used an off-white eyeliner pencil on the water line to brighten and whiten her eyes.
Springtime allergies can really cause red eyes so this trick will come in handy!

Her cheeks are dusted with a soft bubblegum pink blush and contoured with matte bronzer.
Add a shimmer powder above blush for more of a Glow! Lips are prepped with lip conditioner and filled in with a pink gloss.

I really love this smokey peach on the eyes!
I used a soft pearl shimmer on inner corners and under brow bone, then applied peach shadow on the lid. The crease is a dark chocolate brown applied on outer edge only and blended using a tapered fluff brush.  Blending is the key to the halo affect!
You should never see where one color stops and another starts.
I lined her eyes with a dark brown pencil on the waterline and smudged in-between her lashes….I then went over the liner with a deep bronze shadow using a pencil brush to smudge even more. Finally, smudge peach shadow on edges of dark brown liner to soften.

Her cheeks are dusted with a matte peach blush and matte bronzer.
Add a shimmer powder above the blush for more of a glow!
Lips are prepped with lip conditioner then filled in with peach lipstick and nude gloss.
