A Spring Look that Shimmers by Ellis Faas

I love this Spring look by Ellis Faas.

The artist used Creamy Eyes E128 on the eyelid, added a sheen with Creamy Lips L109, and then made it pop with Eyeliner E501. For the lips, she used Creamy Lips L105, and for the cheek, Blush S304.

Must Haves from Kevyn Aucoin’s Spring Line

I love the arrival of Spring products because even as it snows in Boston, it gives you a glimmer of the warm, sunny days ahead! Kevyn Aucoin Beauty never disappoints and its spring line is one to attention to this month.
 
Here are a few of my favorites: 
 
The Angled Foundation Brush
This is the perfect sized brush for contouring and giving you that airbrushed look. It’s designed to use with liquid and cream foundations, but I also love using it with Kevyn Aucoin’s cream blush and bronzer. It creates smooth even coverage and it cleans easily (I like Mrs Myers dish detergent and warm water).
 
 
The Sensual Skin Primer
This is super hydrating and fragrance free. Skin responds immediately with a plump finish.

The Essential Eye Shadow Set in Navy

The palette truly looks good with any eye color. It also blends out evenly and softly with an almost creamy effect. It is forgiving on all eyelids, and I LOVE the blue as a smudge lower lash liner.

 

The Expert Lip Color, Spring Collection
This three-part lip collection is nice and neutral; each can be worn alone or mixed with each other. I love using Kevyn Aucoin’s lip liner in Minimum or Hyacinth with any one of these colors.
