Brighten up! - FOTD

First of all, I appologize to all my lovely followers for being absent for so long once again, with moving out, working, going on holiday back to Latvia there has not been a lot of free time for me, and if there were a few hours or so, I'd be catching up on all the lost sleep as I am now.

Even with that, I'm feeling full of energy as the longer days and sunshine charge us all up like solar batteries. And as there's color and brightness everywhere, let it shine through your make-up as well.

As much as I'd love to be bronzed and glowing right now more than ever (and I've blogged about it), that's just not for my complexion. If you're a honey-bronzed-beauty, now is the time to return to your sparkling bronzers, gold eyeshadows and coral lipsticks.

For skintones like mine and all the pale beauties, there's still an alternative - subtle neons (no, that is not fiction - just use small amounts of color and blend into a paler pastel) teamed with a bit of bronzer will go a long way.

Top tip - don't think you need to choose a light bronzer if you're pale! They're great for brightening up deeper complexions but not for contouring as they will shop up as orange in contrast with pale skin. Pick a deeper one instead and keep applying it in very sheer layers.
Here, I've used Elizabeth Arden Sun Goddess Bronzing Powder in Deep to contour. For a bit of brightness, add a neon-pink blusher. Again, very sheer.

Keep the eyes simple and pull the look together with a coral pink lippie, you're spring ready!

Hope You are all as excited for the sunshine and all that the s/s season is going to bring us,
