My eyes are my favorite feature, so when there’s an opportunity to exaggerate them, I run with it. One of the best ways to do so, in my opinion, is to put together a dramatic eye makeup look that speaks to the season — in this case, spring. When a family member tied the knot recently, I put together a bold, pink eyeshadow look with natural-looking face makeup.
I dipped the angled brush into the dark brown shade and dragged the shadow along my lash line from my inner corner to my outer corner in lieu of eyeliner. I repeated this on both sides. Then, I dipped the fluffy brush into the matte pink eyeshadow shade and applied it to my eyelids. Once I blended everything out, I took the shimmery pink eyeshadow and applied it to the center of my eyelids to create a halo-like finish before topping everything off with the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Washable Mascara in Blackest Black.
To achieve a natural, skin-like complexion, I placed a few drops of the L’Oréal Paris True Match Nude Hyaluronic Tinted Serum into my palms and rubbed them together (this warms up the formula). Then, I gently pressed it onto my face for a lightweight veil of coverage. I took a makeup sponge to buff out the serum for an airbrushed finish. Despite having oily skin, I was surprised at how well this sheer, glowy formula lasted throughout the event and didn’t slip or slide off of my skin.
In keeping with the latest makeup trends, I’ve been loving a glowy makeup look. And there’s no better time to sport one than during a spring wedding. I typically use special occasions as an opportunity to play up my eyes, but when a friend got married recently, I decided to keep my makeup all about the glow.
