I’ve been collecting some new makeup products over the last few months, and tried to hoard as much as I could so that I could do a full face of first impressions! Watch me create this spring makeup look using all these products for the first time – many of which are brand new products on the market!

For my first Spring tutorial of the year, I wanted to do something really easy, soft, and glowy! The eyes are warm and shimmery, and the skin & lips are glowy but subdued! I used a few new products on the market, such as the new Tarte Skin Twinkle highlight palette from the Rainforest of the Sea collection, and the new Lancome Juicy Shaker lip gloss!

Purple is one of my absolute favourite colours. With so many variations in shade, I find that some purples work better in the winter, and some work better in the spring and summer. For the winter time, I love cool, dark purples and plums. In the warmer months, however, I find myself drawn to lighter shades, lavenders, and pastel tones.
My current favourites are:
- China Glaze “Below Deck”
- OPI “Planks A Lot”
- Finger Paints “Are You Hoppy”
- L’Oréal “Paparazzi Pleaser”
- Essie “Ladylike”

To get into the spirit of spring, the Beauty Boutique that I work at had a big spring gala! We had music, snacks, makeovers and facials, as well as representatives and makeup artists from different brands! The energy in the store was incredible, and I got the chance to do makeup on some wonderful ladies!
It was exceptionally busy, so unfortunately I didn’t have time to take as many pictures as I had hoped, but I did manage to take a few quick pics!
Here are a couple of the makeup looks I did, on two different age groups:
The first look was a smokey eye with purple tones, a soft face, and pink lips. We kept the face as natural as possible as the client is very young and has such naturally gorgeous skin. The second look was a brighter eye with brown (although it looks rather silver in the photo) definition in the crease, and coral lips.
For my makeup, I wanted to something a bit more fun and dramatic than my typical look. I did a brown smokey eye with gold glitter.
I will be doing a tutorial on this look soon!
It was such a good experience, and it felt so good to do makeup again on other people!
If I wasn’t in the mood for spring before, I most definitely am now! Bring on the pastels, corals, pinks, and flowers!
For today’s makeup of the day, I thought I would start playing around with some different looks for springtime, despite the fact my city just received yet another snow fall. However, the sun is shining and I suspect that the snow will soon melt, and spring will finally arrive.
While my love for sweaters and boots will never falter, I do find myself being drawn towards spring trends like florals and pinks, and it’s really making me excited for warm weather! I must admit, I do miss maxi dresses and sandals.
The MAC Pro class that I went to last week really helped inspire me to start playing around with warm looks! I am absolutely loving glowy skin with a bit of a bronze glow.
To create this look, I used:
To get a bit more of a glow, I love using a highlighter. MAC’s Mineralized Skin Finishes are my favourite! I am currently loving “Perfect Topping”:
