the perfect spring makeup

I look forward to spring all year long. It’s my favorite season (if i had to pick one). Once spring rolls around I practically live at the flower market, I try to keep my apartment filled with flowers and plants. My favorite flowers finally start blooming come march/april. Also getting out of the dark cold winter is always welcomed.

i took this photo March 28, 2017.

Theres something about the way the light hits my apartment in spring. I get gorgeous light all year long, but maybe it’s the way the light spills in through the fire escape- creating a beautiful dappled light across my curtains. It’s dreamy and soft. I made a little disco ball moment to hang in my window which has been really fun…

Im definitely trying to document my space as much as possible. And once i had a free afternoon, i set up my lights, tripod and put on some makeup. Im so happy with how these photos came out, im so excited to share them with you.

makeup + outfit details below

I got my fist PR package ever!! Glossier sent me their full range of Perfecting Skin Tints + Cloud Paints
I of course had to try them out. My skin is super acne prone and I have oily skin, btw, and i loved the skin tints! I can do a review on them if youd like, let me know in the comments!

I wanted to create a soft spring look. I used my new skin tints for a light coverage + concealer. no powders at all. Using a cream blush and cream highlight is a great way to keep your make up looking fresh and light. I applied the blush on my cheeks, eye lids and forehead to keep the makeup looking natural and sunkissed. I blended everything out with my fingers and added freckles at the end.
