Usually my little daughter is the only one in a fairy costume–wings aflutter, the little sprite that she is. For some reason, this spring’s makeup trends are so feminine and fairy-like (shimmery golds, precious pinks), it’s almost like I’m the one to take to the skies.
Or it could be all the allergy medication I’ve been taking.
Regardless, this season’s makeup trends are super easy to wear, so here’s the breakdown. Wings not included.
Golden Eyelids: A spring trend that’s pure gold. Keep it subtle (especially the older you are…Golden Girls was a show not known for its makeup, my darlings). Apply with caution. For everyday wear, choose golds with moderate flecks so your eyes sparkle minus the Hollywood hooker effect. Quick tip for extra intensity: pair it with navy mascara.Try: Smashbox Single Eye Shadow in 24K, Shiseido Luminizing Eye Color Limited Edition in Ocean Sunset, Jemma Kidd Make Up Eye Essentials Shimmer Shadow in Brulee (comes with a “makeup school” insert), Urban Decay Metallic Intense Shadow in Eldorado
