My Favorite Makeup Looks for Spring 2012

Hey everyone! Just wanted to share with you some of my favorite makeup trends for this spring! As everyone from Washington knows, spring here is crazy weather! Sunshine one moment, hail the next, and then pouring rain! But don’t let the weather get you down, celebrate with some new looks!

Nude Lips colors for the spring season

1. Nude or Peach colored lips. This lip color is designed to go with ANY look. From femine and sweet, to a hot night out! My favorite colors with it are black and brown eyeshadows, and peachy- pink cheeks.

Blended Dark eyeshadows

2. Blended Dark Eyeshadows.  This look is so dramatic and intense, I love it! Inspired by runway models for Daryl K (Makeup by NARS). Be bold this season and make your eyes pop by applying color both on top and underneath. Make sure to blend, blend, blend!

Bronzer Effect

3. Bronzer Under Cheekbones. An easy- to- do trick that creates the illusion of sculpted cheekbones, as well as making the face appear softer and glowing! Taking a contouring brush, sweep bronzer under your cheekbones lightly. For an even bigger effect, dip your fingers in shimmering powder and pat on the top of your cheekbones!

Defined Eyebrows

4. Defined and Dark eyebrows. Not only does this look make your facial features stand out, it also makes your makeup go together better! Lips and eyes tend to stand out more when eyebrows are darker. You can either go for an intense look, or a dreamy look depending on the shape and shade. Take asmall angled brush and dip into cream or powder (Brown- dark brown). Then, start to blend throughout the eyebrows. For a less intense look, use a mascara wand tool and brush through eyebrows lightly.



My Blog’s First Birthday!

I am SO excited to start my very first blog! I have been wanting to make one forever, but always brushed it off as a later project for a rainy day.

So I would like to introduce myself and what this blog is all about – BEAUTY! ❤

Hi, My name’s Lynn 🙂 I love all things creative; drawing, painting, crafting, DIY projects, fashion, but my biggest love… Makeup! I went to Evergreen Beauty College for the Esthetics program and I work at an Asian spa as a receptionist. I want to make a name for myself in the beauty industry and spread my knowledge about makeup and skincare to everyone!

Here’s a couple facts about me:

1. I’ve run a Henna Tattooing business for 6 years. When I was in middle school I loved to draw, so I thought Henna Tattoos would be fun to try at home too. I ended up doing them at Farmer’s Markets during the summer to make some money and it turned into an all year business! With work and school now, I only do parties and events occasionally.

2. I love the Ocean! I want to live in a beach house someday. Salty air, the crash of the waves, shells and sand-  I’m in my element on the beach 🙂

3. I live in Washington. No, that does not mean vampires, were wolves and sappy romances, but it does mean coffee, year- round rain and lots of forests!
