Recently I wore a look composed of lavender and apricot. The combination of the cool blue lavender on the eyes with a warm golden apricot on the cheeks was a complimentary and unexpectedly fresh. The look centered around the pale lavender grey NARS 413 BLKR eyeshadow and the NARS South Beach multiple. NARS 413 BLKR (reviewed here) gives my eyes a brightening lavender sheen that works for spring. Subtlety works well for this look since the colors are contrasting. NARS South Beach is a new love of mine. I shyed away from it for a long time since it seems warm and orange toned in a heavy swatch. However, when worn sheered out, South Beach becomes a healthy apricot glow.
The rest of my face was very basic. I kept my lips a natural pale color with Revlon Sugar Frosting (reviewed here), but a lot of other nudes are interchangeable. Lately I've gone back to using NARS Larger Than Life eyeliner in Via Veneto as a quick, easy, and long lasting liner (reviewed here). NARS Coconut Grove eyeshadow (reviewed here) was for my brows. For my face, I used Make Up For Ever HD foundation in #118 and NARS Concealer in Vanilla. For my lashes, I've been using a Lancome Cils Booster XL mascara base and a newly opened tube of MAC Zoom Lash. I'm hooked on using lash primers lately; I think they do make a difference. So far I'm pleased with Zoom Lash; it's not my favorite brush or formula, but a good product for the price.
Thanks for checking out my current color story! Have you ever tried this combination? How have you been keeping things fresh this spring?
