Ditch Your Boring Winter Makeup and Go With the Glow
April 1, 2009
By the time spring comes, I’m so sick to death of “serious” makeup I’m ready to chuck my matte lipsticks and powders out the window. These three products will revive your look and create a soft, ethereal glow that’s perfect for everyday.
Know how some “glow” products feel greasy and slippery? Three Custom Color Mood Lighting Shimmer Creme in Afterglow ($20.50) is super easy to blend, but it has a drier, almost powder-like consistency that stays in place. Use your fingers to apply the pearlescent champagne color along cheekbones and under brows for a subtle and incredibly flattering gleam.
A sheer, white eyeshadow, like Flirt! I’m Whipped Eyeshadow Mousse in Snow Angel ($12), applied lightly all over the lid looks really fresh in a not-obvious way. Apply a coat or two of mascara and you’re done.
Top off the look with Faces Gloss ‘n Go lip gloss in Cupcake ($12), a shimmery nude. It smells and tastes just like the name suggests, and best of all, it’s goof-proof enough that you don’t need a mirror to apply.
