I thought I would post some of the makeup looks I've been liking for spring.
Usually I wear a pretty natural look, or natural plus liquid eyeliner (I LOVE liquid eyeliner). My lips are always dry, and also I'm too lazy to re-apply anything throughout the day, so most of the time I just go bare-lipped.
Examples of my usual look (yeah right, I wish I looked this good!):
I like this slight variation of a natural face, with feathery soft lashes at Lanvin
Or a slight variation with strong eyebrows
I talked before about wanting a red lipstick, and love the way it looks with slicked-to-the-head hair, but I think you have to have a large forehead for this it seems. I will still do the red lips.
I also like the look of colourful matte lips, like pink..
or orange... I figure I should have a bit of fun before I get too old for this kind of thing!
I already went and got an orange lipstick. I had some containers to recycle at MAC, so I picked up Neon Orange for free. It looks pretty amazing when you blot it down to be matte.
I also like the idea of a teeny bit of colour on the lid, like orange at Derek Lam
Simple taupe shadow up to the brow for a dramatic yet soft look
Lastly, if you're like me, and put your hair up a lot, I have to share something with you! I bought this weird spring-like thing from Goody, and you use it for buns. Basically you twist your hair around and screw in two of these things at opposite ends. They screw in like a corkscrew, holds everything in place and can't be seen!
