Look of the Day: Spring Trend-No Makeup Makeup

A huge trend for this Spring is the "No Makeup Makeup" look, which after a winter of dramatic contouring, and bold, vampy lips, is extremely refreshing. A lot of people describe this look as "you, only better", which I think is actually a great way to look at it. You are not trying to change any of your features, you are just enhancing them. You still look like you, just a natural looking, best version of yourself. This look is great for absolutely anyone. For people like me who feel (more?) comfortable with a full face of makeup, this is a refreshing way to look more natural, which is perfect for spring, but still feel like you have enough makeup on to be comfortable. For people who don't wear a lot of makeup (whether that's because you're not comfortable with it, or because you don't like doing it), this look is a great way to not feel overly-done, but still enhance your natural look. It really is a win-win look. I am really comfortable in this look, and I think it is the perfect, fresh look for Spring.


 Face:

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind The Eraser Concealer

I put this in an upside down triangle under my eyes and along my nose, and on any other area of my face that might be really red that day. 

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural 

I then put this over my entire face. If I want fuller coverage I will use a sponge and press it into my skin. On days I don't want as much coverage, I will buff it on with a small powder brush.

Benefit Cosmetics Hoola

I use a kabuki brush and dust this onto my cheeks and forehead. I use a larger brush and bigger strokes here because I am just trying to warm up and bronze my complexion, not specifically contour.

Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Peach Pop

I pop this onto the apples of my cheeks to bring some life back into my face.

Eyes:

Clinique All About Shadow Quad in Teddy Bear

This quad is perfect for this look. I swipe the lightest shade under my brow, the second shade on my lid, the third shade in the crease and just blend. If I want a little more definition I'll put the darkest shade in my outer corner.

Maybelline Master Kajal Liner in Midnight Brown

These are super blendable, even though they don't feel super creamy. I draw this on my top and bottom lash line close to my lashes. I then just use my finger to buff out the line on the bottom and make it less harsh, but I leave the top line because I like that to be a little darker.

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara

I curl my lashes and put a few coats of this on top and bottom lashes, easy as that.

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil

I fill in my brows with this powder-pencil. I like this product for my brows when I'm wearing a more natural look because the powdery finish of it really diffuses the color and doesn't look too over the top next to more natural eyes.

Lips:

Rimmel London Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liner in Innocent

I draw this around the edge of my lips and slightly onto my lips, leaving the very center of them blank.

MAC Creamsheen + Pearl Lipstick in Peach Blossom

I talked about this in my December Favorites, and I'm still loving it for Spring. I put this over my lips, and the color it makes when combined with the Rimmel liner is a gorgeous peachy-nude, perfect for Spring.


I feel like a lot of people like to lighten up in the Spring, and this look is so refreshing. What's your favorite look for Spring?
