The Essence of Spring
January 29, 2013
The cold season of watery eyes and dry skin is soon coming to an end…okay so it’s not so soon but it will come to an end we promise you! In the meantime, we want everyone to spring into action by overcoming their fear of colour. We’ve put together two looks that have been seen all over the runways, you may even find some tips to kick-start your spring skin repair regimen.
This look is for all those looking to making a statement with their eyes! We’re talking bright and unique colours that will freshen up your face.
Don’t be afraid of colour on the lids, Fashion Magazine's 2013 trend reports claims eye colour is in high demand this season! Start with the NEW mono eye shadow colours by essence. We especially love the green shades in teal and fir-green, the pretty pinks and the ball-point blues, all of which will leave your eyelids looking vibrant. Arabian chic and gold highlights are also on the radar,
Recommended Mascara: By using the I love extreme volume mascara, your lashes will stand out to the point that your eyes will be doing all the talking for you.
Go naked! That’s right ladies text your boyfriends and tell them you’re going nude today…with your face! With this look you’ll be treating yourself and your skin to a nice healthy glow.
We’re talking 50% nude and 50% light natural makeup. Before moisturizing make sure you exfoliate, the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, leaves the skin radiant. After your moisturizer, before you apply makeup, use the Dermalogica NEW AGE Smart® SkinPerfect Primer with SPF30. This primer is great in smoothing, protecting and conditioning the skin surface. It helps with correcting any irregularities and leaves a natural finish that blends away discolouration and gives your face a soft, matte effect.
Finally, add some contour highlights with essence silky touch blush for a vintage bare face look. Many fashion houses, like Preen and Balmain, go heavy on the skin care for the raw shine look. To create some shine to your lids, use essence XXXL shine lipgloss in a subtle colour to dazzle everyone with how fab you naturally look.
