Lipstick Trend: Inspired by Tropical Colors

Posted by

The other day I had the best orange juice I’ve ever had! I went to the beach with my sister and we took with us a basket of seasonal fruits for a snack. When I am in the sun for a long time, I usually crave something refreshing and sweet, watermelon and oranges are my favorite fruits. We just happened to find a fresh orange juice stand and seriously it was the most fresh and delicious orange juice I’ve ever had!Lipstick Trend: Inspired by Tropical Fruits

Something about tropical fruits, maybe their colors and flirty shapes give me so much inspiration, especially with lipstick colors that I would love to wear this spring/summer. Don’t these look deliciously beautiful?

Delicate Details Spring Trend Makeup

There’s something about the delicate and feminine packaging that makes me feel excited as I open a new box of make-up. Maybe it’s the textures and imagining how this new lipstick color is going to look with that new ivory dress with delicate ruffles that I just bought or maybe it’s just those awesome colors.

This spring 2014 the feminine pastel colors and delicate details are going to be trending. Wait for tons of subtle purple, green pistachio, baby blue, coral and ivory touches in clothing, also romantic details, elaborated ruffles and flirty accessories.

You can find some inspiration in this seasonal look that Mary Kay created for the issue of People StyleWatch. In this video, celeb stylist Lo VonRumpf shows you how to go girly, yet glam, with Mary Kay makeup and feminine fashions.

Details Collection by Mary Kay

Using Mary Kay products (Image above / Follow the numbers in the steps to find the products I used), I created this feminine and delicate look. The end result is a casual makeup, but also feminine and glam.

Check out these easy steps to create this look:

Delicate Glam Makeup Tutorial Steps

1. First, I applied the liquid makeup foundation CC Cream Broad Spectrum with Sunscreen SPF 15 (1) using this brush (2) until I saw a uniform color on my skin.

2. I like to add a little bit of translucent loose powder after the liquid foundation, to make the makeup more durable and give a natural glow to the skin. I also like to apply a touch of bronzing powder (3) for that golden sexy finish.

3. For the eyes, first I applied the eyeshadow Moonstone (4) using the brush “eye color” that comes in this cool kit. (5)

4. Then, I used Hazelnut (6) on the eye crease and I mix them together until both colors looked faded.

5. A small line in the eyelid and below the eyes with the eyeshadow Sparkling White (7) I love that flirty shine.

6. My favorite part, the eyeliner. I used the tone Deep Brown. (8)

7. Eyebrows are really important, do not forget them! I used this Brow Definer Pencil.(9) I always brush my eyebrows after applying color so they don’t look rigid.

8. Two layers of mascara. (10)

9. A little color on the cheeks using Shy Blush (Semi-mate) (11)

10. Finally, do not forget the lipstick. I am in love with this creme lipstick red (satinado) (12) so pretty!!! Finally, I spritzed my finished look with Mary Kay Makeup Finishing Spray by Skindinävia (13) so the makeup lasts all day!

What do you think about the look? Add a feminine and delicate pair of earrings, take that pastel colored dress out of the closet and you’ll be ready to conquer spring 2014.

Makeup Favorites for Color Lovers

Colorful makeup is something I have ALWAYS loved. When I was a little girl I used to “apply” my Barbie’s lipstick using nail polish and a toothpick, in middle school I was obsessed with bright magenta lipstick, in high school I was all about lime green eyeshadow, and currently I’m in love with emerald and metallic blue eyeliners!

If you are a anything like me, you might understand that when an eyeshadow or eyeliner doesn’t have enough pigment and looks washed, it’s kind of annoying! right? I hate those black eyeliners that look grayish or worse, those metallic blue eyeshadows that look pale blue when they are applied!!!

Well, I tried these products and they passed the test.

Colorful Eyeshadows Review via Live Colorful

I got this SHANY  Eyeshadow Kit for Christmas. It had so many colors in it, I love the variety! The colors are bold and strong, there’s matte, shimmery, neutrals and bright shades. I would say that some of the colors are so bright I need to be careful when I apply them, otherwise I might make a mess. The great thing about SHANY is that their products are approved by PETA and are animal cruelty free which is great!

Maybelline Color Tattoo Review via Live Colorful

I tried Maybelline Color Tattoo Pigments Purs some time ago and I wasn’t impressed. Then I got the Maybelline Color Tattoo Gel-Cream Eyeshadow and totally loved it. Well, at least the 75-24K Gold tone is amazing!

Bright Eyeliners Review via Live Colorful

Malu Wilz metallic blue is one of the richest colored eyeliners I have ever tried and from Chic, Green Grass 306 is so beautiful! I got these two from a friend overseas but I think you can order their products online, but I am  not sure. I am also a big fan of JK Jemma Kidd liquid eyeliner and JORDANA emerald tone.

That’s it! If I find new awesome products I will let you know. What about you? What eyeliner or eyeshadow can you recommend me?
