My favorite products for Spring :)

My newest makeup faves for spring!  I'm so excited.  I love all of these products so much!  Perfect for the spring season!


Foundations:

Make Up For Ever's Face and Body

My ultimate favorite foundation for spring and summer.  It feels so light and soft, but gives great coverage without looking like you caked a bunch of foundation on your face.  I also love that it's a water based gel so no breakouts, but is waterproof!!!  It gives a gorgeously natural, satin finish and does not accentuate skin imperfections!  I apply it with my fingers or a foundation brush.  Beautiful, light-weight, perfect!!

Make Up For Ever's HD Foundation

If I'm looking for a bit more coverage than the Face and Body, I use the HD Foundation.  This foundation is oil-free and provides a medium to full coverage.  It gives that soft-focus, "airbrushed", effect to your skin and it looks beautiful in person or on camera.  It's also light-weight and doesn't highlight imperfections.  I apply it with a foundation brush, and, if you're looking for even more coverage, use the Face and Body as a base and then apply the HD over it.  Your skin will still feel light and look natural and be able to breathe!!!

Cheeks:

Illamasqua's Powder Blush in Morale


I love Illamasqua's blushes!  They are so bright and pigmented so a little goes a long way!  This color is a shimmering magenta pink and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it!  Had to have!!!  I just love this color...it's so springy/summery to me!

Eyes:

Tarina Tarantino's Jewel Shadow Palette in Delightful


I have a few Tarina Tarantino eyeshadow palette but I love this one cause the colors are neutral.  Great for everyday makeup!  There are 4 shimmery shades in this palette, one matte.  There's a soft gold, a soft pink, a peachy color, a shimmery brown, and a matte dark brown.  I love this palette cause it's great for on the go, great for everyday gorgeous makeup, has all the colors you need to create a few beautiful looks in one case, and all the colors are so pretty and highly pigmented.  For an even more intense pop, use the colors wet!

Lips:

Nars Lip Laquer in Hot Wired


Oh, I had to have this color the moment I saw it.  It's so gorgeous!  It's this super hot magenta color with a purple sheen to it....I die!  I'm not a big fan of lipstick, so the fact that this is a gloss made me soooo happy!  The only downside to it is it doesn't come with an applicator, so make sure you have a lip brush on hand (or your finger, but I prefer brushes).  It's gives a pretty wash of color to your lips, keeps them glossy and moisturized for hours.  Mine stayed put for a good 6 hours until I ate and wiped it off.  So pretty...I love it!

Here's a look using all my faves (except the HD foundation)...I'll do the LOTD on this tomorrow!

They are expensive, but are so worth it. Go to Sephora and have the girls there color match you and apply it, then wear it for the day. You'll love it!
