Why not use your Easter fete as an excuse to try a new makeup look? Step out of your comfort zone of neutral eyes and a touch of mascara. Elevate your Easter from everyday to extra special. Here are five fabulous ideas for making the most out of your Easter makeup:
1. Punch up your eyes with pastels. Lucky for us, pastel colors are all the rage right now. We're seeing eyes swathed in lilac purples and pretty blues, even mint green. Just stick to one or two complimentary colors to avoid looking like an Easter basket yourself. Swipe a bright color on your whole lids then blend up into a light neutral by your brows.
2. Embrace colored eyeliner. A little pop of color on the liner of your lids can make your eyes stand out. Switch from regular black to a fun color like blue, green, or purple. A swipe of green "can be ethereal if it's left alone or more dramatic when followed by a few coats of mascara" says Allure Magazine and purple is universally falttering. If you want to tone down the color a little bit, apply black or brown eyeliner first then layer a bright color on top of it. You can also apply a shimmering eye shadow color with an eyeliner brush dipped in water as an alternative to eye shadow.
3. Be Blushing - make sure to apply a brilliant and shimmering blush. You'll want to look great in all those family photos, so opt for a color that pops but doesn't distract from the rest of your look like the ever popular Nars Orgasam. Remember, your blush should always be a graceful transition from your eyes to your lips.
"Play Date" from Essie or try the two tone nail trend or pick two complimentary colors like a pastel pink and pinkish beige, then alternate the two colors on your nails. Of course if you're feeling especially playful you could pick five different Easter egg inspired shades and paint each nail a different color.
5. Pick a spectacular hair style. Easter is a care-free, relaxed holiday, so make sure your hair has the same feeling. There's no wrong way to wear your hair long and flowing - opt for loose waves, sleek strands, or bouncy curls. If you need extra volume, make sure to check out Big Sexy Hair's What a Tease Backcomb in a Bottle. You'll be amazed at how much volume you can get without ratting your hair. Pick up your bottle at the Styling Studio.
Above all though, don't forget your smile!
