FOTD: Spring Brights and Radiant Skin

I bought it. Sent for review. Contains affiliate links. 

It's April and I'm ready to break away from all of the naturals I've been wearing lately. This is definitely a stronger look for me than I normally do, but I'm digging how the lip color makes my eyes look really bright. I wanted flawless skin, a little shimmer on the eyes and a statement lip. So I stepped out of my naturals rut, my comfort zone, to try some brighter colors.

For my skin, it's a little bit of a process, but it's worth it. I promise.

I start with prepped skin and applied my Giella cream contour to my cheeks. I then mixed a little Paula's Choice Resist Oil with It Cosmetics new Illumination CC+ Cream.

Next, I applied It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector under my eyes and to the bridge and corners of my nose. I dabbed a little PC Resist Oil on my fingers when I applied the concealer. It makes the under eye area look so refreshed!

I added Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector as a highlighter to compliment my hoval (heart/oval)-shaped face.

To make everything look flawless, I used my favorite buki brush and buffed Bravon Beauty's Eraser Tinted Diffusion Powder to make my skin look airbrushed. I'm not sure what makes that powder so different from the rest, but it's amazing (I'll ask Bravon and get back to you!).

On my cheeks, I applied Bravon Beauty Susumu Suede Blush in Pink Peony to the apples of my cheeks. A little goes a long way with this hyperpigmented blush, so go slowly.

For my eyes:

After I applied a Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer, I dabbed Bubbly shadow from Colour Pop across my lid. I did a light crease color using Girl Crush, my favorite natural taupe-y matte gray shade. I used Roulette (also from Colour Pop) to line my lash line.

To finish up my face and lock in the look, I sprayed Moisture Mist from NuSkin over my entire face.

Since I have virtually no visible lashes, I primed them with Subversion from Urban Decay and then applied two coats of Sensational Mascara from L'OREAL.

I also filled out my brows with It Cosmetics Build-A-Brow Waterproof 5-In-1 Micro-Fiber Crème Stain in blonde.

On my lips:

I applied Too Faced Melted Metals in Jelly and cleaned up my lip line with a touch of concealer.

It's fun to break away from your normal routine! And creating two dutch braids that start at the part is a really easy way to hide third day hair.
