Whenever the first sign of spring arrives, I quickly shed my
winter layers and opt for bohemian frocks, dewy skin and an overall earthy
vibe. This affects my style, beauty and even state of mind as I try to tackle a more carefree
approach to life, which is honestly difficult for someone as high strung as me.
Yet it’s something I can channel when I update my style and beauty regimen to
match the vibe I hope to feel.
I partnered with
Target to share my back-to-nature beauty
approach focusing on a strong brow, nude eyelids and lips, and topped with a
shimmery glow. The products I used include:
Essence How to Make Brows Wow Kit, Essence How to Make Nude Eyes Kit, NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm, NYX Tinted Brow Mascara and a pair of Sonia Kashuk full-volume falsies to fake voluminous lashes.
I love a
simple, but pulled together look that can withstand the heat and my own
excessive sweating, which is why a nude look works well. A tip? Once you apply
your foundation and before you swipe powder over to set the look, first apply
the liquid illuminator by NYX. You can cut back on a cakey look by first
applying all liquids, so if you choose to use a liquid highlighter that
provides more of bold look, top it over your foundation and concealer before
the setting powder. I also skipped on heavy mascara and chose a pair of falsies
that gave me a doe-eye look without the inevitable mascara run. I also used
both the Essence brow kit to fill in my brows and the NYX brow mascara to comb
and set the brows
in place. I find this combo helps them stay put
throughout the day.
I kept my eyes and lips simple with a subtle shimmery lid using a deeper nude tone
to create some definition, with a medium nude tone to blend, blend, blend! For
my lips, I chose NYX’s matte Stockholm, since I’m currently still loving this
with matte lips. This particular lip cream makes it easy to apply
without using too much precision. I mean, who has time for lip liner and
relining lips during festival season? It’s all about ease of use without giving
up a strong beauty look perfect for sashaying to some folksy music and sipping
a beer.
