Welcome back to another Makeup Monday, and I am so excited to finally be sharing this makeup look with you all! With spring officially here I am SO ready for all the fresh, beautiful makeups that accompany it. People tend to overcomplicate makeup, then get overwhelmed with the process–girl, trust me, I know that feel. However…
I want to show you gorgeous, glowing, flattering makeup with least amount of fuss and products is possible.
After prepping eyes for makeup, apply a complimentary cream shadow all over the lid with clean fingers.
Soffie Says: Alyssa has gorgeous green eyes so on this day I chose a pinky peach shadow.
Use a fluffy brush and lightly sweep a warm brown in the crease.
Press a chocolate brown shadow with a flat brush like this into the upper and lower lash line. Smudge with q-tip or pencil brush.
Soffie Says: This creates definition without obvious lines, creating a demure, yet sexy smolder.
Finish with curled lashes and two generous coats of mascara.
Prep skin as usual, then tap cream highlighter to the high planes of the face (everyone’s features are different, but Alyssa I added a tiny bit to the cheekbones, Cupid’s bow, and nose bridge). For Alyssa’s base I airbrushed to conceal where necessary, then applied cream blush on a fluffy brush, then set lightly with no color powder in the concealed areas only.
Soffie Says: I like to call this intentional powdering (IP). IP locks in the work you did to create a beautiful skin base and the areas that are bereft of powder create the illusion of perfect, fresh, real skin.
Finish off with a soft coral lip.
Soffie Says: For added shine and moisture, tap a little lip balm over top.
