We all know that when we find a new color or look, we feel rejuvenated and fresh. After the long hours and hard work that came with working a major event, I needed a boost. So, I went to my makeup bag and started to play with the newest color releases — Destination Beauty, the Motives Spring/Summer 2012 Collection from Motives by Loren Ridinger.
I found myself drawn to the mint green Utopia Pressed Eye Shadow. I began by pressing Utopia from my lash line to above my crease, with a little under my eye, like an eyeliner. This gave my eye a wash of color that is so on-trend for the season.
To add a little “point of interest,” I added a strip of Mykonos Blue Pressed Eye Shadow to only the center of my lid. As a highlighter, I added Moroccan Spice Pressed Eye Shadow to my brow and the inner corners of my eyes. To finish, I lined my upper and lower lashes with Motives Khol Eyeliner in Onyx and (of course) applied mascara to my top and bottom lashes.
For the lips, I used my new favorite item (which is so hard to choose, because we have so many great products!), Motives Pucker Up Lip Plumper in Tango. The red-orange gave my look the final touch it needed to look very fashionably-Spring.
My new look has re-energized me so well, I don’t need to travel for an escape!
