I definitely consider this products a luxury, but the Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-con No & Plush Eyeshadow in The Tease is totally worth it if you are a purple/plum lover like me. There isn’t a dud in the whole palette and it has a gorgeous range of more neutral purples, a bright magenta tinged purple, a peach, and rich shimmering burgundy. Green eyed ladies, this one is for you!
The blush I often reach for this time of year is the warm tinged pink in Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Blissful. This was one of the first blushes in the range I bought ( I now have 9!) and it is the perfect soft brightening warm pink for that perfect glow, minus the shimmer. It just seems to go with everything.
On the eyes I love a good cream shadow, and two I find myself reaching for all the time in the Spring are Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in RSVP, a subtle sheen champagne pink, and Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Perky, a pink peach matte. Both last all day long, and make excellent bases for other shadows but hold up well on their own too.
I also love a good pop of bright eyeliner to perk things up, and Mac Chromagraphic Pencil in Rich Purple is exactly what the name says: rich purple. It’s not shimmery and has a creamy creamy texture that doesn’t drag, and smudges out nicely along lower lashes for a kick of colour.
For lips it will be no surprise that I picked my all time favourite, the YSL Rouge Pur Couture
