Shakeup Your Makeup for Spring with Vincent Longo

How has your week been? Mine has been speeding by, which is always a good thing, I think. The weather (minus yesterday) has been wonderful and everything is in bloom. Since it's spring (even if it's cold where you are) it's time to shakeup your makeup. Be gone, dark colors and paleness! Let's add some spring color with these easy steps, using products I was sent from Vincent Longo.

In case you aren't familiar with this amazing cosmetic line, here are some quick facts:

  • Vincent Longo earned a reputation for being a talented makeup artist during the Supermodel period--no wonder he developed a cult following!
  • He created his line, full of rich, vibrant colors in 1994 and is the CEO and Creative Director of Vincent Longo Cosmetics.
  • Vincent continues to collaborate with leading fashion magazines, creates makeup designs for the New York runway shows, shoots all of his company's beauty imagery and provides ongoing beauty commentary for shows including Live with Regis and Kelly, Good Morning America and The Early Show.
  • Vincent Longo has worked with celebs such as Senator Hillary Clinton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Claire Danes, Courtney Cox, Michelle Williams, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mena Suvari, Molly Sims, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Lopez, Jewel, Catherine Deneuve, Elizabeth Hurley, Monica Bellucci, Paulina Rubio and Lisa Marie Presley, among others.

Here is my spring look featuring Vincent Longo cosmetics--no Photoshop or editing, I promise! And since you all enjoyed my GIFS last time, here's a super quick tutorial to update your makeup for spring (and how I got that dewy glow):

I did apply foundation and eye makeup before starting this tutorial, so use whatever you'd like.
The first product I used is the infamous Lip & Cheek Gel Stain in My Sunshine. 
There's a reason this is a #1 seller--it's a paraben and gluten-free, water and kiss-proof gel.
I added some to my lips and my cheeks and blended it in--my shade is a dusty coral.
For those of you who love a really natural look, this is all you will need. 
It comes in 7 colors, is oil-free, buildable, and I want them ALL!

I wanted to add some more color for spring, and I used the Vincent Longo Slanted Blush Brush (made from 100% goat hair) and the Dew Drop Radiant Blush in Sandalwood.  Dew drops of subtle pearl in a demi-matte powder base layer a personal touch of color and delicate glimmer with every brush stroke. The dew drops release their tint and texture providing a kiss of light to the skin resulting in a lasting radiant color and finish. Comes in 6 colors. So pretty.

To warm up my skin, I used La Rivera Sun Bronzer in Golden Glow
These bronzers come in 4 shades and give a natural, healthy, luminous glow. I usually shy away from bronzers that glow, but the glow this one gives is so gorgeous and natural! 

I completed the look with this gorgeous Original Perfect Shine Lip Gloss in Cherros
Does this color make you think spring or what?? Look at it below:
 It features Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to moisturize and condition the lips,
 plus it smells like Vanilla!
It's a shiny, but not sticky gloss.

Aren't these colors beautiful?
This is just a sampling of the many products in the Vincent Longo line. 
I highly recommend checking them out for any time of year!

Products were sent to try and I loved them so much, I shared them here, with my honest-as-always-reviews.
