True 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 True Spring clients.
I also show you how to create custom palettes and eye looks using these products.
These eyeshadows all come in tin pans that can be put into a magnetic palette. The Colour Pop and Makeup Geek shadows will fit in 26mm wells, and the Ben Nye 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.
This is one of the smallest eyeshadow collections I have for a tone (only Light Summer is smaller). Nonetheless I find this to be a good, useful range.
Toast, Peach Smoothie, Dark Roast and Dark Brown (which are similar, but Dark Roast is darker), give a solid matte neutral basis for eye looks. Shimmer shadows are surprisingly thin on the ground here, Play By Play being the only one, but it makes a lovely lid shade. And there’s plenty of fodder for colourful looks with Turquoise, Green Leaf, Tiki, Take Flight and Meteorite.
The shadows I use on clients most frequently are Toast, Peach Smoothie and Dark Brown.
Ben Nye Nectarine
This blush comes in a tin pan that can be put into a magnetic palette, and will fit in a 37mm well.
I’ve written already about how to make your own custom palette. You can use any of the products listed above, in any of the magnetic palettes linked in that post, to create your ideal palette.
To get you started, I’ve put together some example palettes for True Spring.
Eyeshadow & Blush palettes
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. I used Ginger Cocoa mascara in all three looks.
The next three looks are more dramatic, but the first two are still simple to do.
And that’s it! Happy makeup-ing to all the beautiful True Springs out there.
