The Air is Spring

The air is undeniably spring.

The drama of spring awakening is at first subtle with tiny bursts of color here and there in wildflowers and bulbs emerging. This is one scenario that plays well with spring makeup. Slowly adding tiny bursts of color to your look.

Then, almost suddenly, the natural world around us erupts with grand passion sending plants and trees into an almost chaotic expression of color and new life. This scenario tells a different spring makeup story, one that is unabashedly alive with color.


Makeup Gourmet has translated these two scenarios into simple spring color updates:

Peek-a-Boo & Eruption.


Allow one new color to pop onto one or two following locations– Eyes • Lips • Cheeks.



Allow one new color to pop onto two or three following locations– Eyes • Lips • Cheeks.


Contour cheeks with Powder Blush instead of a neutral cheek contour shade.





Suggested Color Updates


Select a new noticeable Eye Shadow color for the ball of the eye.



Add a splash of a bright yet Sheer Gloss color over your daily lipstick in the center (pillow) of the lips.



Either add more of your favorite blush or switch to a Cream Blush for a light reflecting cheek.
