Spring make-up trends

Heidi Klum in shimmery make-upShimmery make-up is set to make a comeback for spring and, while I was excited going into this post, I am now realizing I have mixed feelings about the trend. I have never been one for heavy make-up and certainly think you should be careful with this look in the warm months.

I do have some ideas on how to achieve the perfect dewy look …

  • Stick with colors that are earthy. I recommend choosing colors for your cheeks and eyes that include (depending on your skin tone) bronze, gold, olive, copper or rose

  • Use a light hand and minimal product. A lot goes a long way.

  • Try focusing on one area, either shimmer lips or eyes. Maybe combine 1 of those with your cheeks, but I would hesitate before going with the full face.

  • If you suffer from acne or have a descent amount of scarring or wrinkles, I would recommend sticking with your usual make-up and playing up your eyes or lips with shimmery products. I think mineral make up can, at times, sink into crevices and accentuate any unevenness.

  • Use a base powder on your eyes before applying eye shadow to avoid creases

  • Favor this look at night when you’ll have a nice reflective glow, as opposed to a sweaty look that can come from wearing shimmery makeup in the sun.

  • Do not choose shimmery makeup for a wedding, prom or anywhere there will be a lot of photos. The products look highly reflective in flash photography.

I chose this photo of Heidi Klum because she has the perfect glow, without looking shiny or too metallic. She use the Victoria's Secret Makeup Spring Look Kit. I am a big fan of Bare Escentuals and recommend you go to Sephora (or another retailer) and have one of their make-up artists test out the different products on you. Shimmery make-up done right will give you a flawless, dewy look that is perfect for spring or summer.
