Quickest way to brighten up your face-wear a bold colored scarf!!
Here are some bold and beautiful ideas on how to brighten up your face. And as always, all completely wearable. You know I have 3 kids, so even though I'm experimental with makeup, I don't want to walk around town looking like a drag queen or clown (no offense to either professions!!).
1st Look- Flower Power- or- Katy Perry Grammy Face!
Products used: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in "lime"
MAC Wonder Woman "army of amazons" green mascara
Bobbi Brown Brights Palette- "ultra violet, orchid, periwinkle"
Estee Lauder Blush in "tender petal"
MAC Wonder Woman "Emancipation" lipglass
I love the addition of MAC's green mascara, it made the lime green outline on my
top and bottom lash line even more obvious- leaf-like;-) Leaves, of the flower, get it??
After I did this look on myself, I remember seeing this similar color combo on Katy Perry
at the Grammy's. Hers is much more bold and out there, but I like mine a bit more
toned down for everyday wear!
Since the eyes are kind of out there, I chose to do a very soft pink cheek
with light goldy/pink lip gloss. No harsh liners on my eyes or lips.
Close up view of my flower power look. My lavender lids (petals) with my
green outline (leaves) makes for a bold eye look but without looking harsh.
2nd Look - Watercolors
Products used: L'Oreal Lavender Smokes eyeshadow quad
Napoleon Perdis shadow color disc in #92- used as blush
Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lip gloss in "let's jam"
Target watercolor scarf
This is me showing off my new fave bold watercolor scarf from Target.
It literally has every color in the rainbow and matches all of my solid
clothes in my closet! I tried to link this scarf but couldn't find it available online,
but it is from this season and is only $12.99!!
One of the 3 new L'oreal eyeshadow quads I have bought.
These quads all have such complementary colors brought together in one palette.
How I used it:
I used the champage and taupe mixed together from lash to right above the crease.
Then mixed the lavender and purple together and swept just inside the crease.
Used the darkest purple on top of my black eyeliner.
Overall look- turned out slightly blurry, but you get the idea of the bright makeup
all around! The bright fushia lips make it. The VS gloss I used is no longer available, but they do carry
a similar product in their Perfect Lipstick line in either "vino" or "hot spot" ($12)
I'm going to be so into watercolor prints now for spring,
I searched the print name on Nordstrom.com and this is what it came up with,
a dress I would die for...
It's by Blumarine and is a body hugging knit dress that would be perfect for any warm
weather parties or get togethers. Now if only I had an extra $1,500 laying around;-)
So be bold, be experimental, and be beautiful! Now is the time for full- on color ladies!!
