My Pink & Coral Makeup for Spring 2010

If I look in the calendar Spring is only 3 weeks away but if I look on the window I see the middle of winter. Snow everywhere, ice and cold temperatures. This week only for a day was sunny outside and I just imagine it could be a spring day so I came up with this Pink and Coral Makeup Look.

I’m attracted to pink eyeshadows, pink glosses and almost everything that is pink and can me used in makeup. This is Spring like I see it. What is your makeup spring look for 2010?

I’ve used pink lipgloss on my lips and a pink creme color on my nails but if you are interested in the whole makeup and close-up photos keep reading. Continue Reading

Coral Spring Makeup inspired by Cabana Coral Collection by Bobbi Brown

Are you in love with coral shades? Have you seen Bobbi’s  Cabana Coral Collection for Spring 2010 and you want to adopt the same makeup this Spring?

Keep reading if you want to find out Bobbi’s Coral Beauty Tips and how you can use them to have a sunny and fresh look everyday.

Coral lips and cheeks are an easy way to add a pop of color to your makeup. I developed a modern, wearable formula that looks sunny and fresh, never chalky.

Are you one of those girls who is cautious about corals? Well, I am! But Bobbi promises that will take only 5 minutes to make them cool.

Problem

I love the color – but worry that it’ll look to bright or chalky.

Solution

Bobbi’s modern formulas and juice colors take a classic shade for a modern spin.

Coral can be one of the most uplifting color a woman can wear and can make the skin look younger and fresher. The easiest place to wear coral are on the cheeks and lips. Pale peachy corals look great on lighter skin tones and suits women with silver, grey and light blonde hair.

For women with more olive and deeper complexions a bronzy coral will look sexy and still appear fresh. Continue Reading

Fashion Smoke makeup inspired by Too Faced Smoky eye palette

Few days ago I did another Smoky eye makeup inspired by Too Faced Smoky eye palette. This look is called Fashion Smoke and I have to tell from the beginning that I never use blue or green shades for my makeup looks, so this was a real challenge for me.

TooFaced-Fashion-Smoke-makeup

Maybe it’s only my impression but I don’t like using green and blue eyeshadows since my eyes are green and I try to emphasize them by using other colors like violet, pink, gold or brown shades. A few years ago I was using a lot of  black and gray eyeshadows for everyday smoky eye makeup, but if you are bored with the classical black eyeshadow you can try a purple smoky eye makeup which seems to be very trendy this fall and also suits every skin, hair and eye color.

I chose the Day Smoke makeup today because I had to go for the second day at Cosmetic Beauty Hair  – international exhibition of products and equipment for cosmetology, body care and hairdressing – and I wanted something chic and classy, wearable in the day time but also with some mystery inside.

I usually use lots of brown and bronzy shades in my makeup and these are some beautiful colors. They are very easy to apply on the lid and above the crease. I didn’t use the 2 double-sided brush/sponge applicators because I preferred to use my own makeup brushes, which I’m use to. Continue Reading
