This season give your skin a soft and fresh spring glow. Give that tired looking skin a refreshing new makeover with the hottest looks of the season. Binky shows you how to get that beautiful sheer layer of coverage you’re looking for without your foundation caking or creasing.
For spring you want to have a light and refreshing tint to your complexion but you still want to have good solid coverage for your skin. What is the best way to achieve this look? There are several tips and tricks you can include into your daily routine for that perfect, flawless complexion.
First, be sure to choose a color that matches well with your skin tone. If the color is too light you can appear washed out and plastic. If you color is too dark you will spend a lot of time trying to blend the foundation into your skin resulting in an uneven and blotchy finish.
Using a concealer is a definite must to achieve that immaculate airbrush finish. Some people skip this step altogether but using a concealer for trouble spots on you face is necessary to give your skin an overall radiant glow. It allows you to target dark spots and problems areas with a little heavier coverage. This lets you apply a lighter layer a foundation all over and leave the concealer for the places that need a little more coverage.
It’s also a good idea to start off with a primer or some sort of toner for your skin. These you would apply before your foundation to give a smoother finish and more natural looking results. Some people forgo foundation in the spring and stick with a tinted BB cream. This creates a beautiful natural tone for your skin.
Another trick for giving you that extra bit of shimmer this spring is to use a bronzer powder. You can get gorgeous, eye catching results by lightly dusting a thin layer of bronzer over top of your foundation. This approach gives you that extra touch of glimmer and radiance.
While on the hunt for a light and fresh new eye shadow this spring consider natural colors that compliment your skin tone. Shimmer is a soft and appealing look for spring. A good rule of thumb when applying shimmer to your eyes is to have the application thin enough for your skin tone to still come through. You will also only want to apply one coat of shimmer to the eyelids to avoid caking.
For your lips think creamy, soft and silky. Choose colors that bring out the brightness and simplicity of the season. Pastels and light warm colors bring out the brilliance and shine of spring. Don’t be afraid to add a little gloss to give you that added sparkle and vivid appearance.
Step into a new freshness and vibrancy with the latest sparkling and glistening looks for spring. Pamper yourself with a bright and polished look this season and set yourself up for a fabulous, youthful glow.
