With the promise of warm weather and blue skies among us, it’s time to refresh your spring makeup look! We all need a closet clean out during this time of year and its also important to clear the clutter in your makeup bag.
Spring up your makeup look with these tips and tricks using some of our favourite products here at Denise Elliott Beauty Co!
TIP #1: COMPLEXION
Lets take off the heavy winter layers of foundation and lighten it up with a tinted primer! One of our go-to spring products is the Glo Minerals spf 30 tinted primer. This will not only even out the skin, it will also feel light and dewy.
No need for setting powder with this product, it’s formulated with polymers for sheer radiance and a long lasting wear!
If your in need of a little brightening around the under eyes our Stila aqua glow concealer has just the right amount of coverage to neutralize any deep tone to make you look refreshed.
TIP#2: ChEEKS & LIPS
I’m sure we are all feeling a little pale with the lack of Vitamin D over the last few months! Adding a little colour to your lips and cheeks will make a huge difference.
We are loving the Stila 2-in-1 convertible compact in peony. It’s a lightweight, creamy formula that will leave your skin with a dewy finish! Our go-to shade, a neutral soft rose/pink tone. If your looking to add a little highlight around the cheek bones we have just launched the new Spring Stila highlighter.
Our new Paul & Joe lip colours are both moisturizing and bold! This one is shade 202 a perfect pop of pink!
TIP #3: EYES
Next onto the eyes! The new Stila Matte and Metals palette has a mix of great shades, it’s seriously stunning. Whether you are wanting a light champagne colour or would like to create a smokey eye this palette is perfect. It has a variety of matte and shimmer colours with cool tones and warm tones you can mix and blend to create whatever look you desire.
To define the eye I blended the Stila smudge stick just lightly. It’s an amazing texture and glides on so smooth. Lastly, Mascara. No matter what you do make sure you use Mascara as it makes a serious difference. Adding a few coats of the Stila HUGE mascara and you’re set!
