Make Up Look: Happy First Day of Spring!

Happy first day of Spring everybody. Spring has officially sprung and I can't tell you how happy I am about this! To kick things off, I did a spring make up look and tutorial for you all :) I went for a this lovely mint green shade in the Sleek Candy palette, as I have been seeing mint absolutely everywhere this spring (and am dying to add some to my wardrobe!).
But alas, I'll keep it to the eyes! Enjoy everyone :)


1 - Start by priming the lid (I used the Lime Crime Candy Eyeshadow Helper) and adding the lovely minty green shade from the Sleek Candy palette called Mint Cream.
2 - Taking Naked 2 from the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette, I warmed up my crease. This makes the green more wearable and acts as a transition colour.
3 - I then took Faint from the same palette and lightly used it in my crease. I then took a fair amount of time blending the colours together and adding more Naked 2 as I didn't want the crease to be too overpowering.
4 - Its now time to fill in brows and add your highlight! I added Virgin as my highlight.
5 - Add a slick of liquid liner.
6 - Finish off with false lashes. I went with the Vintage Cosmetic Company Gracie lashes* as they are perfect for spring!








This was my first time properly playing around with the Sleek Candy palette and I really enjoyed it. The colours (I used) were very easy to work with and blendable and I am already dreaming up some looks using those pinks! Again I used the Vintage Cosmetic Company Gracie lashes*. They really are lovely for spring and great for looks like this as they don't overpower anything. I found this look very easy to wear as I teamed it up with those browns from the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette and can honestly say I will be rocking this look throughout spring!

Are you happy its finally spring?

  3. I think this is a lovely look for spring. The colour is really fresh and crisp looking. The green is beautiful. I like it for its simplicity. Not over the top, just the right amount of colour for what is definitely a very spring-like design. Well done. Once again a lovely design.
