I went outside today and felt the sun on my shoulders and my arms and my legs, and it was glorious! Spring. SPRING! It’s almost here, after what has seemed like the longest, coldest, wettest winter ever.
So, in celebration of spring’s upcoming awesomeness, I did a springy makeup look today using stuff from the new Jane Iredale spring 2017 collection, which is coming out on March 13th.
I don’t know much about the Jane Iredale makeup brand, but they’re a mineral makeup line out of the Berkshires in Massachusetts. They do very wearable, subtle colors (not quite as subtle as Bobbi Brown), and their new spring collection has an abundance of springy pinks and peaches with a teaspoon of taupe and plum.
Today I wanted dewy skin and light coverage foundation and concealer, which is basically what I wear when I’m not testing makeup for MBB. Most days, if left to my own devices, I wear light coverage instead of full-coverage layers, which is why I’ve got some freckle action happening today on my cheeks and around my eyes.
Eyes: Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint in Lots o’ Latte (as a base on my lids), Jane Iredale PurePressed EyeShadow in Soft Kiss (lids and lower lash lines), Zoeva Graphic Eyes Pencil in Mute (upper water lines), Zoeva Graphic Eyes Pencil in Taupe (lower lash lines), Urban Decay Urban Lash in HBIC Babies (outer corner of upper lash lines), Urban Decay Brow Beater Brow Pencil, Benefit Ready Set Brow Gel
Cheeks: Jane Iredale In Touch Cream Blush in Candid (apples of my cheeks) and Jane Iredale Peaches & Cream Bronzer (upper cheekbones)
Face: BECCA Backlight Primer (applied all over my face as a primer), Hourglass Vanish Foundation (applied very sparingly on my cheeks, nose and forehead, and patted in with fingers), BECCA Soft Light Blurring Powder in Golden Hour (on my forehead, down the sides of my nose and around my mouth) and Make Up For Ever HD Concealer (under my eyes)
Lips: Jane Iredale Lipstick in Susan
I took Connor out for a couple of quick walks wearing this, and it felt good. I don’t think I looked like I just rolled out of bed, which is always a good thing, but I still felt like me.
How about you? What kind of makeup did you wear today? Did you do anything different? Try anything new? Inquiring minds want to know.
