The sun is shining, puppies and kittens are playing in the grass, ice cream is being shared by lovers on the street, etc. etc. Spring has arrived and up until a couple of weeks ago, I found myself still wearing my dark berry lip shade and dark ensembles. And I’m not Lorde so I’ve gotta brighten up my situation.
I’ve decided to spruce up my spring makeup options and have found the PERFECT magenta shade for lips from Ilia in Jump. I think it would be flattering on all tones, but especially those with darker hair and olive/tan skin. As you can see in the picture, the color really pops, dispelling the myth that natural lip color lacks pigment: Ilia gets it right!
I finally ordered eye shadows from Alima Pure and I adore them! I ordered Luminous Shimmer shadows in Chai and Martinique and a Pearluster shadow in Orchid. Chai (shown here) is very close to my skin tone, so offers more of a shimmery, nude look. It’s perfect for everyday, casual looks for the office. Orchid can be used wet or dry. In the photos, above, I applied a bit of my Keys Luminos moisturizer right before applying Orchid to bring out the metallic effect. Just beautiful! All three shades compliment each other very well.
