BEAUTY BAR: Springtime Smokey

The leaves are growing on the trees, the sun is peeking out from behind the clouds and spring has officially sprung! With the hotter temperatures come hotter looks, including brighter, fresh-faced makeup like this Fashionista’s! This Fashionista completely nails the springtime smokey eye look, while maintaining a flawless complexion and showing off her natural beauty.

This Fashionista’s makeup look starts with a perfect complexion. Taking care of your skin is incredibly important in the warmer months of the year and it shows that this stylish student takes care of her’s. After applying her flawless base, she adds a subtle pink blush and a dewy highlighter to her cheeks, fills in her brows to bring out their natural shape, and keeps her hair straight for that easy-going and laid-back look.

After applying her foundation, blush, and highlighter, this Fashionista really plays up her eyes. Although she applies a smoky-eyed look, she keeps her look subtle and spring-time appropriate by really blending out her eyeshadow and lightly lining her eyes. The colors allow her eyes to stand out while not looking overdone. She finishes off her look with a lengthening and thickening mascara and a perfectly pink, kissable lip!

To complete her springtime look, this Fashionista keeps her outfit simple and lets her makeup be the statement. She starts with a traditional combination of cuffed blue jeans and a loose, black tee. She pairs this combo with a simple, silver statement necklace and a pair of black wedges. I love these shoes! They’re perfect for dressing up any casual look and are great for exposing perfectly pedicured toes.
