It's officially time to swap out our plum and berry go-to lip hues for something a little light. I for one have been going HAM on the light pink swatches.
My recent re-dive into the world of Pinterest has me obsessing over light and easy looks. And by light and easy I mean the no-makeup makeup look and a posh pink pout.
To get one-on-one expert advice I've been heading over to my favorite store in New York City, Bloomingdales. I find that their beauty advisors are more available to talk you through an application, and if you can't head into your local Bloomies you can chat to one online.
Right now, by using ShopatHome.com (or their app when on the go) you can get up to 6% cash back on your entire purchase. If you're not familiar with them, their site is dedicated to helping you shop smarter and save more (think coupons and cashback deals).
Alright, now for the good stuff. After testing a few these at the counter and in my personal routine I wanted to share my favorite products for the no-makeup makeup spring look.
Although it's called the no-makeup makeup look, you'll still need a few products to pull off a bare-faced base. One thing that helps tremendously is having hydrated skin and well-rested peepers (or at least, disguising them as so). Clinique's 3 step system is a such an easy way to kick-start your skin regimen and Kiehl's Avocado Eye Treatment keeps the delicate skin around your eye looking well rested. After that don't forget a swipe of your favorite CC cream or tinted moisturizer, such as Laura Mercier's best-selling tinted moisturizer.
The eyes are the gateway to your soul so keep them defined with a few intentional steps. MAC's clear brow gel is great for defining brows and lashes. FYI, if you can't go clear they also come in color. I didn't list mascara but if you need that - feel free to add a light layer as well. Next should be a light swipe of Bobbi Brown's Cream Shadow in Shore and cat-eye liner. Notice the theme of going light on the makeup which is key when going for the no-makeup makeup look.
Next, you're going to give your cheeks a tint of color by using NARS' Multiple in Orgasm using a light hand. I'm a huge fan of the Multiple since you can use it on your eyes, lips, body, but for today, we'll stick to cheeks. Blend it out if you didn't use a light hand applying. For the final step apply MAC's liquid lipcolor in Divine Divine to your lips. It's a matte finish which I absolutely love, but if you're looking for a gloss finish feel free to swipe on lip balm.
