As a passionate minimalist, I like to keep things simple. Not only fashionwise but also with my make-up routine. I hardly ever spend more than 30mins in the bathroom (hair-do included), because there are way more interesting things to do than camping in front of the mirror… But that doesn’t stop me from trying out new beauty products and different looks. Especially during my home spa session I love to play around with new eyeshadows and lip colours. With the arrival of L.O.V. Cosmetics, a high-quality but budget friendly make-up range, here in Austria, I thought I’d share my super simple Spring Make-up with you. This Look is super easy to achieve and gives your face a glowing, fresh looking update in no time… Let’s get started:
STEP ONE – PREPARATION
It all starts with a good base and exfoliated skin. Don’t forget to use a face scrub at least once a week for ultimate soft skin. Before I’m doing my make-up I’m using the L.O.V. Smoothing Lip Scrub (perfect base for lipsticks!) and an eyeshadow primer. I’m also using the new 3in1 Prime & Fix Spray as a base – it prepares the skin for the make-up and smells like fresh coconut. Yum!
STEP TWO – FOUNDATION
When it comes to foundation I opt for light but even-looking coverage. My skin should look healthy and moisturized. The Serum Foundation has a air-like texture which hydrates the skin while giving medium coverage. Before the foundation is applied I’m using the Colour Correcting Stick to get rid of those Panda Eyes aka dark circles & redness. Next up: Apply concealer on the bridge of your nose, forehead, chin and around the eyes. Use your finger tips to blend it in well. You can use the foundation before or after the concealer – that’s up to you.
STEP THREE – EYES
Brush your brows and use a brow pen, if you like. I can recommend the Eyebrow Designer Pen – it looks very natural and defines the brows within seconds. Next I’m using the LOViconyx Eyeshadow Palette in neutral shades. Trick: Apply the eyeshadow light to dark, which means applying the light colour over the whole eyelid, blend in the intermediate colour working from the outer corners of the eyes inwards and finally, apply the dark colour at the outer corners. Time for a beauty hack: For some extra shine I’m putting the rosebud lip balm onto the eyeshadow. Black Mascara on – and the eyes are done!
STEP FOUR – LIPS
I don’t like bold lips but a touch of colour, like a subtle berry tone, is just perfect for spring. Mix a neutral lip balm with your favorite Lipstick and dab it onto your lips. Voila!
STEP FIVE – FINAL TOUCH
There you go! With enough practice you’ll have this routine down in five minutes flat.
