BEAUTY BAR: Natural Smokey Eye

April 7th, 2016 at 2:00am

Spring is finally here! I love how with spring comes new beginnings; the weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, the flowers are beginning to bloom and so are the trees. Spring is always the season where I feel inspired to try new things and give my style an update, especially my beauty look.

In the spring time I want my beauty look to be fresh and natural. That’s why I can’t get enough of this Fashionista’s beauty look. The whole look is so bright and fresh and is a welcome change from the darker looks that seem to carry us through the winter season. In her look you are immediately drawn to her eyes. By using natural colors versus dark grays and blacks, she was able to create a natural smokey eye that is perfect for spring. The natural eyeshadows paired with a delicate cat-eye make for the perfect go-to look for spring.

She keeps the rest of the look really simple. By putting her hair up in a clean bun it draws the focus to her eyes. The subtle lip color gives her lips that “just bitten” look and a little bit of bronzer gives her a slight contour on her cheeks. This beauty look is blooming just like spring. I can’t wait to try and recreate this look myself!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To get this look try looking for palettes or shadow trios with more natural colors, like this Smashbox Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio or this Too Faced Natural Matte Palette. For those “just bitten” lips try a Clinique Chubby Stick and try NYX Cosmetics Matte Bronzer to add that little bit of contour.
