Bold brights are big in Spring beauty, and I'm loving it. While I like to play with bright lip color, blush, and eyeliner, I've always shied away from bright eye shadow. In the fun-house that is my imagination, bright shadow always looks garish, tacky, clown-like...have you seen Johnny Depp in any of the Alice in Wonderland promos? And while I hold strong that this is a very plausible possibility, I'm learning that there's an alternative--a fresh and beautiful eye look that flatters both warm and cool skin tones. The key for me is balancing my eye with the rest of my face, and working with sheer buildable color.
I love Josie Maran's Natural Wonder Powders Palette. With 5 buildable shadows that include gorgeous brights as well as neutrals, it makes introducing bright shadow into your look easy. Before you know it you'll have a ton of different looks, from subtle to look-at-me vivid, to bring into your Spring beauty repertoire. Also included in the palette is a great bronzer, and 2 blush options- one rosy and one peachy. Along with the fantastic color options, I also love that this makeup is infused with argan oil to help keep your skin hydrated, nourished and toned. So if you're like me and have shied away from bright eye shadows, now's the time to break out and play. I'm glad I did it and you will be too!
