If you’re not quite the winter person such as myself, then I’m sure you’re just as excited as I am about spring’s arrival! It’s time to put away the heavy coats, wouldn’t you say? I kept my makeup pretty basic along with a matte lip throughout the winter so I felt with the changing of seasons it was time to switch things up.
I knew I wanted to change somethings with the way I applied makeup but wasn’t too sure just how. Luckily, Wet n Wild kindly sent over some of their new colours for spring for me to play with. I haven’t used too many highlighters in the past since the idea of adding more shine onto my already oily skin sounded a bit frightening. However, the combination of all the different tones in their highlighters made my skin look glowing without looking like it was time to take out the blotting papers.
As much as I love a good black eyeliner it’s refreshing to tryout a brown liquid eyeliner for once. In fact, it might be a new favourite since it still has the impact of a black eyeliner but looks more natural. Purples are not only beautiful on brown eyes but they also help the deepest of shades pop. I’ve experimented with purple eyeshadows but never with an eye pencil, and I must say it’s something I wouldn’t mind rocking out more than once in awhile! You can choose how heavy you want it to be which is perfect for those who usually shy away from colour.
Almost everyone loves the ongoing matte lip trend happening right now, but every now and then it’s always fun to switch things up. I’ll be one to admit that nude lip colours wash me out a lot, but with a few tricks it’s possible for anyone to pull off any type of nude. I especially think the combination of a nude matte lip colour underneath a berry lipgloss perfectly finishes off the look and is also wearable for anyone.
