BEAUTY BAR: Pretty in Pink Lips

Spring is officially in the air on the UW-Madison campus. Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping and the temperatures are climbing after a long winter. In addition to the change in the weather, makeup trends are shifting as well. That means that it’s out with dark vampy hues and in with fresh spring shades.

This Fashionista has embraced a classic spring makeup trend; pink lips! To start off her makeup look, she smooths out her complexion with a lightweight foundation and sets it with powder. Next, she uses her favorite blush and bronzer to give her already gorgeous features more dimension. For her eyes, she uses her Urban Decay Naked2 eye shadow palette to create a cool-toned and neutral eye look that complements her lips. To finish off her eyes, she brushes on some black mascara to make her mile long lashes seem even longer.

For the main focus of her makeup look, this Fashionista swipes on her favorite pink lip color that complements the undertones of her skin. This pink shade is perfect for any occasion because you can use it to brighten up your look for class or wear it for a night out with your friends. It also looks great with this Fashionista’s outfit of choice; a black embellished T-shirt and white denim shorts. For her shoes, a pair of tan Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes complete the look. Her outfit is a great neutral base for this makeup look because it allows her lips to be the point of interest.
