Get the Easter Look - Pop of Color!

Easter is a time to spend with family, so you don't want to have over the top makeup - but the spring colors are so beautiful, so of course you want to play them up! How can you do this in a conservative way? Here's how!

-Of course, prime your face! My favorite is Tarte's Clean Slate Poreless Primer.
-Use a lightweight, glowy foundation like L'Oreal True Match Lumi.
-For a quick under-eye corrector, try CoverGirl & Olay's Simply Ageless Corrector. This has moisturizers as well as instantly corrects blue tints!
-Set your foundation with Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Translucent Powder. To get more of a glowy look, only use in your T-Zone.
-A matte bronzer to subtly contour your face is best. My favorite is Benefit's Hoola Bronzer
-A glowy, but subtle, blush is perfect for this look. Try Milani's Blush in Luminoso.
-To finish the glow, add some highlight above your blush and above the outer side of your brows. Use Mac's Soft & Gentle!
-You want simple eyeshadow - use Venus all over your lid and your inner corner as well as Faint in your crease from the Naked Basics palette.
-Pile on the mascara! One of my current favorites is L'Oreal's Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara.
-The key to achieving this look is by adding a pop of color - put this Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eyeliner  in Aqua on your lower lash line! This eyeliner is so creamy and pigmented - I've been using it for years!
