Spring has arrived in Nelson, which means it’s time to refresh your makeup bag. So in this week’s article, we thought we’d share some tips to help you freshen up. We’re talking spring makeup looks.
Spring makeup looks and tips:
Colour Me Pretty for Spring:
Spring is the time to bust out the bold floral colours! Think bright and punchy pinks. A pop of colour on the lips immediately brightens up any makeup look and always gets a ton of compliments!
Getting your glow on:
As we come out of the winter months complexions are generally paler, especially given the lack of tropical holidays this year. Jane Iredale has a huge range of beautiful blushes to suit any look providing a healthy, stunning wash of colour to the cheeks.
As you pull out your favourite short-sleeve tops, Jane Iredale Tantasia Face and Body Shimmer are a must-have for any last-minute social occasions. It gives am instant glow and natural touch of colour when applied.
A change of season is also a good reminder it’s probably time to deep clean your make up brushes! Although it is a big chore, cleaning your make up brushes regularly and caring for them will not only help them last longer, it will also mean they perform better during makeup application.
Getting the Foundations Right:
Although foundation choice comes down to personal preference, generally as the weather warms up lighter textures and coverage on the face becomes the preferred choice for many.
The Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals foundation is a beautiful, lightweight option to switch to during the warmer months. With beads of pigment suspended in a beautiful hydrating serum, it’s a foundation and treatment for the skin all in one! It offers a light-medium coverage for day wear.
If you would like to switch to something lighter in weight but still prefer a medium coverage then Dream Tint may be right for you. Dream Tint is a tinted moisturiser that provides medium coverage and also has naturally occurring SPF (always a bonus)!
A dewy finish to the skin is a quick way to achieve a youthful glow and always looks great during the warmer months. This can be achieved with a liquid foundation, a cream blusher and highlighter! All can be applied quickly and blended out with fingers, so, it’s super easy to do in a rush.
All Day Glamour:
If you have a special occasion, you need to make sure your make up stays put for it’s always a good idea to give yourself a mini at-home facial before application.
Step 1: Exfoliate to remove build-up and congestion on the skin. This provides a smoother surface for your make up to grab on to. We recommend the Gentle Exfoliating Gel from Ultraceuticals.
Step 2: A hydrating mask such as the Replenishing Mask from Ultraceauticals or the Dilo Hydrating Mask from Pure Fiji will help to smooth out and plump up the appearance of fine lines. That means that makeup is less likely to settle into them.
Step 3: Fill your handbag with makeup touch-up solutions. Pressed powder, blotting papers and setting spray are your must-have items.
Day to Evening:
A day to evening spring makeup look is super easy to achieve. All you need is a Jane Iredale Contour Kit, your preferred night-time lipstick shade and some darker eyeshadow.
Nighttime makeup calls for more enhanced features. Dust some bronzer under the cheekbones, jawline and across the top of the forehead to provide dimension and accentuate bone structure. A touch up of blush for a slightly more dramatic effect, and lastly a deeper lip shade is usually a great way to take a look from day through to night.
Let’s talk brushes… Essential tools for achieving your spring makeup look.
Having the right tools for the job make beautiful makeup so much more achievable! Lower quality brushes don’t pick up and deposit the pigments in makeup very well, and often absorb a lot more product. Whereas good quality brushes make blending out a flawless finish a task, even a beginner can achieve.
