Makeup Wars: Favorite Spring Trend

April Fools!

In this edition of “Makeup Wars”, we are talking about our Favorite Spring Trends! Now that Spring is here, it’s time to get rid of those Wintertime, pasty blahs and bring out the Bronzer! Nothing is better at brighten up ones face than the warmth of color. It makes you seem more vibrant and youthful, like you have an extra “spring” in your step (*see what I did there?). It’s also super great at helping to accentuate your cheekbones – this really gives your face a more distinct look, instead of just “round”, which is exactly what I have going on, so I was really excited to jump into the Bronze Cheek Hollow look.

Makeup Wars Spring Trend OGBThis look really brings the sunshine to your skin, exactly where you want it – under your cheekbones, to draw attention to the center of your face. That way folks are looking directly at you and aren’t distracted by having to choose between looking at your eyes or lips. In fact, I really think that it is best worn with really minimal makeup so as not to take away from the impact (*as I did in the pic over there). Like, when you wear a bold lip, you wear a neutral eye, or bold eye with a nude lip.

Lindsay Lohan Court BronzerI was really nervous that I might not be able to pull off this look, what with my super pale skin and all, but then I saw Lindsay Lohan rock the look in the courtroom earlier this year and I knew that I shouldn’t have any worries about it after all. As you can see, Linds has really got it down, and I need a bit more practice to get it so sharp. But, really, that’s what trends are all about – how to take a look and make it your own. I really think that I have got a good start in making this MY look for the Spring.

Now make sure and go see what the other lovelies picked as their Favorite Spring Trend this year:

    1. Paula says:

      Right?? I should have posted the pic of me sucking in my cheeks – they were sharp!

  2. CarleenPruessCoulter says:

    The correct use of bronzer to accentuate the cheek is so important. I like how this trend really picks up on that!

    1. Paula says:

      I agree! Bronzer is my Spring BFF!

  3. Pink Sith says:

    Gorgeous! You look like a fine sculpted beauty! I can’t wait to drag my bronzer out and GO TO TOWN! Such an inspiration! You rock!

    1. Paula says:

      Thank you!! I know you will rock it, too! Send me a pic when you try!! :)

  4. Lindsay has people upon people to do these hot looks for her. That is how she makes it look so easy! I think you did a fantastic job and LiLo should watch out!

    1. Paula says:

      You are right! I didn’t think about her MUA’s. Thank you so much for the compliment!! :)

  5. Christa says:

    Love how it brings out your cheekbones and gives you a glowing complexion. Pretty!

    1. Paula says:

      Thank you! This is what I love about this trend, you can *actually* see my cheekbones now! :)

  6. You look just like LiLo here!

  7. I always wanted to look like Lindsay. I emulate her in so many ways. I’ve got to get out my bronzer now. Thanks for showing me how I can be so much more like her!

    1. Paula says:

      You are *so* welcome! She is an inspiration to many!

  8. Raging Rouge says:

    Wow, just look at those chiseled cheeks! What a fab idea!

  9. Brittany says:

    So jealous! I’m not sure this will work with my complexion. Maybe a dark brown or black eyeshadow buffed on my cheeks will work?

    1. Paula says:

      It might! But, I bet a really bright red might be even better – it would really stand out on your skin tone.

  10. […] I love the green of fresh grass. I wonder if I trimmed it to nail length and used my gel polish top coat if I could seal it in and it would stay green for a full two weeks? Paula recently posted..Makeup Wars: Favorite Spring Trend […]

  11. Gianna says:

    Um, hello! Has anyone not mentioned how this stunning orange brings out the blue in your eyes? BONUS!!!!!!

    1. Paula says:

      Thank you!! I noticed that when I put it on, but I was afraid I was being vain! I am *so* glad someone else noticed it, too!! xoxoxoxo
