Spring Collection 2014 Reviews And Make-up Look

Spring look-015

As part of my spring series it’s time for reviews and a make-up look. In the last two months I purchased some pieces from the NARS Final Cut Collection for Spring 2014, and a powder from Clarins Opalescence Spring 2014 Collection.

Spring makeup for me is subtle, full of peach and rosy pink and really light on the face. I like to leave off bronzer and shimmer on the cheeks and prefer naturally bright skin peeking out under my foundation (I achieve that with skin-care products like Origins Gin-Zing Energizing Moisturizer, see review here). And if we are already talking about it, at spring time I like lighter mineral foundations paired with a good-coverage concealer at least until summer heat sets in and I don’t have a choice if I want to stay relatively oil free with my combination skin. Eye make is also light at this time of the year with some basic colors to slightly emphasize the eye socket and thin black liner (I have Audrey Hepburn in front of my mental eyes when I think spring…). Brows are not too drawn in either to keep it more natural.

The next Spring Collection products help me with this spring look.

Yes, I’m guilty… I confess that I went back after my last post and got some other goodies so you don’t have to wait anymore for photos and swatches.
