I don’t know about you, but I am SO glad we are finally starting to see some spring weather. The winter always feels like it goes on for so long, and the gloomy and dark days can seriously cramp my motivation to do anything.
Now that the sun is shining and the weather is warming up, it’s time to start bringing some light back into the days and my favourite way to do that is by adding some colour into my spring makeup routine!
Most of us feel like running and hiding when we think of using bright colours in our makeup routine. I personally find myself flashing back to my early high school days of powder blue eyeshadow and bright red blush on my cheeks… yikes. That is the opposite of what we are going for today!
If you want to learn how to brighten up your days by adding colour to your spring makeup, then read on, friend!
Blush is a great way to bring some life to your face without having to step too far out of your comfort zone. During the spring time I like to use blushes with more pink and orange tones to them because they still feel natural but you can build it up for a brighter look. My go to blush in the spring is Mac Cosmetics Pinch O’ Peach!
My favourite way to add colour to my makeup look for spring is by wearing bright lipstick! For a bold colour that will last you all day, opt for a liquid lipstick. This ensures you won’t have to touch up very often during the day. If you’re new to wearing bright lipstick and want to start off slow, you can use a regular lipstick and blend it out with your finger for a sheer wash of colour which looks more like a tint, rather than a bright statement colour. A great versatile lipstick is Mac Cosmetics Impassioned Lipstick. It’s a great pop of colour but blended out can be a great starter colour.
One way to add colour into your makeup during the spring is by switching your regular brown and black liner for something with more colour to it! Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Rockstar, while different than your everyday colour, is still tame enough that you could wear it out to work and not have to worry about everyone staring at you. For a bolder look, opt for a liquid liner. For something a little more subtle, use a pencil liner and smudge into your lashes so it has a softer look to it.
Adding colours in your makeup routine doesn’t have to be scary. By incorporating small amounts of colour in the right spots, you can easily refresh your makeup and get it ready for the spring! These 3 ways to add colour are my go-to looks since they can make a big impact with a small amount of effort.
It’s hard not to feel great about yourself when you try something new with your makeup so throw on some bright lipstick and go rock your day with confidence!
