13.04.2017 + Upper Canada Mall + No Comments

With the first week of Spring under your belt, it’s time to switch up your makeup routine! We’re saying bye to dark lipstick, heavy foundation and thick liners, and hello to bright and colorful products to welcome the warmer weather!

Taking inspiration from the blooming flowers and glowing sun, we’re sharing our favourite spring makeup trends and the products you need to recreate them!

Pretty in Peach

We know peach is sweet but it’s also great at warming up your complexion without going full-on bronze. From your lids to lips, peach is Spring’s sought-after hue for a monochromatic makeup look. Here are the products we’re using to accomplish this look:

  1. MAC Eyeshadow in Up at Dawn
  2. Caryl Baker Visage Blush in Vinyard
  3. MAC Lipstick in Ablaze
  4. L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lip Colour in Peach Fuzz available at Shoppers Drugmart

Glow Baby Glow

We all want to nail that lit-from-within-glow (sans filter) that we see on every It Girl’s Instagram. This season, the right highlighter is your key to flawless, perky skin that has people saying “she’s absolutely glowing!” These are our top highlighter picks:

  1. Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter in You Light Up My Life available at Sephora
  2. BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop available at Sephora
  3. MAC Prep and Prime Highlighter – various shades
  4. Caryl Baker Visage Brow Highlighter in Champagne Pink

Au Natural

Neutral hues are this season’s go-to for easy sophistication. Go nude with your lips, cheeks and lids for this simple look, and make sure to play around with shimmer and gloss for extra dimension! Go natural with our favourite nude products:

  1. Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick – various shades available at Sephora
  2. MAC Eye Shadow x 15: In The Flesh
  3. NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation – various shades available at Sephora
  4. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – various shades available at Sephora

Soft(er) Brows

Say goodbye to over-tweezing and waxing – natural, full brows are here to stay! Avoid filling them in too harshly and make sure to comb through the colour for a soft, more natural look. We’re mastering the natural brow look with the help of these guys:

  1. Caryl Baker Visage Precision Brow Pencil – various shades
  2. Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara – various shades available at Shoppers Drug Mart
  3. MAC Veluxe Brow Liner – various shades
  4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer – various shades available at Sephora
