Top spring makeup tips and tricks we abide by...
Spring has sprung and we guarantee you will have a few soirees to attend this season. From this season's races to weddings, you need to be spring ready! Here are our tips and tricks to refresh your makeup for the new season:
Switch to a lightweight foundation.
Using mineral formulations like Youngblood’s Loose Mineral Foundation and CC Perfecting Primer will do wonders for your skin, and allow it to breathe spring air into your pores. The minerals in all of our foundation types are incredibly lightweight and non-comedogenic, meaning your skin will feel smooth all event long.
Go blush happy.
The spring races are certainly the place where you can liven up your makeup routine. Play with blushes in formulas like powder or crème, to wear on their own or layer for a more punchy, pigmented look. Blush is the perfect way to emulate that desired luminous rosy sheen that screams springtime. Our top spring seller is Pressed Mineral Blush in Blossom, and like its namesake, its floral, pink tones blossom on the apple of your cheeks for a subtle pink tinge.
Peach hues are in.
From your cheeks and lips, to even your eyes, pretty peachy tones are trending right now (we blame that darn cute emoji). Drape warm pinks and coral tones on your eyes and cheeks with Youngblood’s Crème Blushes in Tropical Glow and Pink Cashmere. For a more fashion forward, daring look, brush the peach tones around your hairline and temples for an all-over peachy luminosity.
Priming is a must.
Don’t be stuck with your makeup halfway down your face in wedding photos. Bad look, always. So make sure a primer and setting spray is a part of your everyday routine (and especially on those special event days). Try our Mineral Primer to give your skin a smooth canvas, and finish off with Minerals in the Mist, spritzing this all over your face post-makeup application. This not only keeps your makeup flawless all day, but keeps your skin cool as well.
Start skin prep before your makeup.
Your makeup starts where your skincare ends. That means that you need to take care of your skin as though it was the base of a beautiful masterpiece. Your spring ready makeup isn’t complete without a facial or strong skincare routine to ensure that lit from within look. Luckily our salons have event ready treatment packages available. Find your local stockist to enquire about their Special Event packages.
