Spring Makeup

Because I spent years doing makeup, I instinctually keep my eyes open for makeup inspiration. There were a lot of nude faces on the runways, but I can always count on Anna Sui for beautiful, youthful rosy glow and color.

For this look: Apply even base and set with loose transluscent powder all over. Sweep yellowy-gold shimmer shadow across lid, dab pale gold shimmer in corner of eyes. Dust shimmering rose shadow from crease to brow. Line inner eye with white pencil. Curl lashes and apply two coats mascara. Apply a bold (magenta, fuschia) blush to cheekbones (not apples of cheeks). Dab a matte peach or rose lipstick on, avoiding a cakey or overdone look.
