Glowing Spring Makeup (That Looks Natural!)

Hey you! How has your week been? This post is going up super late because this sinus infection has been kicking me down. I'm talking go-to-sleep-at-9:30-down. I'm usually burning the midnight oil around here! Anyway, I shared some options earlier this week to get your body glowing for spring. And today I have a makeup look that looks natural, and is so pretty. It's an easy, glowing look for spring. If you are into natural-looking makeup, you'll love this. I hope you enjoy the video!

I'm sharing a variety of products to get this look, including those from this month's Ipsy bag. Click here for my code to join for $10 a month. Here's what's inside:

  • Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in Apple Pink
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil
  • Demeter Jasmine Perfume Oil Roll On
  • dr. brandt® microdermabrasion
  • Elizabeth Mott pop! goes the shadow

And here is how I got the look:
  • I started off with the dr. brandt® microdermabrasion scrub. Very gentle, and good for all skin types.

  • Then I used the new Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray. I was sent this to try and I love how light it is! Here's more:
    • Think lightweight primer, but in spray form! Perfect for spring/summer or those who want a lighter primer.
    • Silicone-free base creates a breathable barrier between skin and makeup. I had no breakouts/irritation.
    • Oil, paraben and sulfate-free. Each product is tested for sensitive skin.
    • Formulated to be worn with or without makeup.
    • Proven to reduce the need for makeup touch-ups or blotting. I have dry skin, so I can't attest to that, but my makeup lasted all day.
    • This will be out next month--I highly suggest trying it out! There's an oil-control version too!
  • Next, I applied Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse as for my foundation and then added concealer. Feel feel to use your favorite BB, CC, or tinted moisturizer.
  • For the eyes, I use the Elizabeth Mott pop! goes the shadow, a beautiful champagne shade, that I applied to the center of the lids and blended out. In the video I also use Stila's Kitten, my favorite shadow shade. It allows eyes to look larger and more awake.
  • To make my lashes look thicker, I used the Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil along the outer half of my lash line, and using short strokes. Love this!
  • I curled my lashes and used Covergirl Bombshell mascara--I used the #1 side only.
  • To get that glow, I applied the Maybelline Master Glaze Bronzer Stick along my upper cheekbones, chin, and the top of my nose. Yes, this is a bronzer stick, but it's so light that it works perfectly as a glowing highlighter. You can also use the champagne shadow or your favorite highlighter. I have dry skin, so I like the creme formula.
  • On my lips, I used the Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in Apple Pink, but I also love the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Fresh Papaya. I also used it as a creme blush.
