Light Spring Makeup Kit

 

In this post I’m giving you a peek into my professional makeup kit, at all the products I use for my Light Spring clients.

I also show you how to create custom palettes and eye looks using these products.

Enjoy!

Makeup Geek Rapunzel (shimmer pale yellow), Shimma Shimma (shimmer beige), Hipster (shimmer taupe)

Rouge Bunny Rouge Chestnut-Napped Apalis (matte taupe)

Sugarpill Suburbia (matte coral)

These eyeshadows all come in tin pans that can be put into a magnetic palette. The Colour Pop, Makeup Geek and Rouge Bunny Rouge shadows will fit in 26mm wells; the Ben Nye and Sugarpill shadows will fit in 37mm wells. They’ll all, obviously, fit in a freestyle magnetic palette.

The Ben Nye shadows can be used both wet and dry – applying with a damp brush is useful for intensifying colour and shine, and for eyeliner.

There is a good range here of shimmers and mattes in the neutral and peachy colour families, which are the most useful for day-to-day makeup, while Mermaid Green is a fun, colourful shadow with a perfect name for this tone.

As you’d expect, most of these shadows are in the lighter range. If you’d like to use eyeshadow as your eyeliner, as I do, I recommend Mink Stole as a darker colour that’s still within the palette.

Suburbia eyeshadow, shown above, also doubles as a lovely blush.

Eye Looks

I used Taupe mascara in all the looks below.

These first three looks are simple, easy and wearable. They use 1, 2 or 3 eyeshadows, so it’s up to you how much or how little you want to do.

These next three include looks with more colour or drama, but the first two are still simple to do. The last is a more involved, dramatic look, great for the evening. While these may not seem as intense as the True Spring or Bright Spring iterations I’ve done previously, these will be dramatic on a Light Spring, without veering too heavy or too dark.

And that’s it! Happy makeup-ing to all the beautiful Light Springs out there.
