Go Bold this Spring ~ Beautiful Blogging

So are you all just as ready for Spring and Summer as I am?  I really, really need to see the sunshine and feel the warmth in the air. I am soooooo done with Winter.  Mother Nature it's time to move on!

One of the first things I do for Spring is to check out the new makeup trends.  I know, you all thought I was going to say something like check my gardens or clean up the yard, ha!  Well a girl has to have her priorities, right?  I think you all know by now that I absolutely adore makeup.  It's fun, it hides flaws, and enhances our beauty.  So I ask you, what's not to love!

The colors of Spring and Summer still seem to be fuchsia and coral.  But, the theme is BOLD!  Are you ready for that?  Oh I so am!  According to Fashion Magazine the lips are coated in a bright fuchsia or orange.

Fashion Magazine also notes that a bright, bold eye is all the rave this Spring.  Just remember though that you don't do both at the same time.  Choose one and downplay the other.  I tend to prefer to highlight my eyes, mainly because I love to play with eyeshadow. 

Are you bold enough for blue?  I love to use this shade as an eyeliner.  For me, it really enhances my brown eyes!

How about green?  All hues of green too!  If you're bold go with the lime green.  If you're not so bold go with the moss green.  Check out Stylelist for more on green.  Oh and scroll down to the end of the page because there's a great tutorial on the smoky eye!  I sure do love me some smoky eyes!

Real Beauty advises "For a fun, nighttime look, start by applying lighter lilac shades on the inner corners of the eye and darker lavender and plum hues as you move outwards on"

Super pretty, yes?  I think you can modify this look to work for daytime too!  Don't be afraid to use some bright purple on those eyelids.  What fun and oh so chic! 

Have you tried the SmokyShadow Blast from Covergirl?  They have some awesome color combinations and there's no guess work!  Super pretty.

Don't be afraid to shine this season.  And, there's plenty to choose from so you can shop in your price range.
Covergirl, Mabelline, and Revlon all have great colors to choose from as do Estee Lauder and Elizabeth Arden. 

Now, get out there and be bold this Spring!

Hey Jaclyn ~ I love makeup too! More so when I was younger but I agree, it hides so many 'sins' and enhances our natural beauty! I had a friend years ago who ALWAYS wore orange lipstick and it looked FAB on her. Great to see it's back 'in style' again!

I'm with you, girl....it's time for spring!!!!

I, too, love makeup, though I don't wear any eye makeup. I have allergies, and I end up rubbing my eyes alot. And I rub it all away.

But I love bright colors of lipstick. Just that touch of color does so much. Wish I was bold enough to wear red!!!

Have a great day,

I love the colors and love that they are bringing back the dark pink...in fashion they are calling it Honeysuckle.

I love make up too - not very good at lines for eye liner and shadow though.

And I don't think I'll wear the orange! I'm more pink. teehee

I have seen all of the movie stars with bright red lipstick, bringing back the old time movie star glamour! I love it.

Hi Jaclyn, thank you for stopping by! Oh what beautiful colors! I think everyone is ready for spring!

Have a great week!

Hi Jaclyn-I love the lilac colors, and think I will try that. Haven't been able to get the smokey look down pat but the Cover Girl thing looks easy.
My daughter works for Maybelline in their PR dept. so thanks for the plug for them!
Love all these looks.

Love the makeup! I've been looking for some perkier, less edgy looking eye makeup, but I was at a loss of what to look for. You see, I have really bad judgment on hat does and doesn't go well with my face, so I will definitely have to ask for opinions... I am blonde with blue green eyes and I'm not tan but not pale either. Any suggestions? If so just post a comment anywhere n my blog right here: http://sleepinl8.blogspot.com
Thanks! I'm following and subscribing to this newsletter - really great stuff ya got here!

I went to Doll House to get my dress and they promised they would get it in. I was so upset when they didn’t come through for me so I went Sassy Boutique. They were able to get my dress within three 3 days. They had wonderful customer service and nothing was a problem for them. I really appreciated the effort they made to make my night memorable. i will never go to dollhouse again.
