BEAUTY BAR: Less Is More

April 11th, 2016 at 2:00am

Hello spring! I’m sure we are all excited that it is officially spring and cannot wait to bring out the bold colors and high-waisted shorts. I came across this Fashionista on a very (unusually) warm spring day in Kent. Although she is dressed super cute, I was more focused on her makeup. Looks perfect for spring, right? Well, I can tell you all her makeup secrets and just how to go about achieving this easy, light look.

First, let’s look at this simple look for any spring day. This Fashionista is rocking some high-waisted shorts with a cream long sleeve crop top. She then throws on a pair of slip- on Vans to finish this simple and casual look for class.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Well, let’s talk about the eyes and how to get full lashes like this Fashionista. So I asked her the secret to full and long looking lashes and her wise words were to start with coating the tips, then continue from the roots to the tips, then to finish the look touch up the edge of the tips. These three simple tips are easy with the right mascara, and this Fashionista used Maybelline Rocket mascara on her lashes. The next tip was about highlighting after you have done your foundation and light bronzer. This Fashionista used the highlighting (ColourPop Highly Waisted Highlighter) trend for a light look on warm days. Her tip was to use your fingers to highlight your cheek bones, down the bridge of your nose and the point on your chin. After you have highlighted, the next step is to blend it with a Kabuki brush to finish off your look. She added a soft pop colored lip to add some color. This lip color is called ColourPop Bumble Ultra Matte Lip, and this Fashionista believes that this matte lip gives you the “Kylie Jenner” lip that every Fashionista is currently wanting.
