It’s that time of the year when the brisk winter weather and stagnant energy are heavy. Many of us are restless and dreaming of a change in pace. The added time indoors and lack of motivation to wear anything but loungewear has sparked the idea of playing around with makeup to feel something. Spring is around the corner, so if “faking it until we make it” will help boost the drive to find that motivation and escape the restlessness of the winter, let’s do it. There’s nothing like spicing up your look in an effort to channel this Spring forward energy. With many of us working from home, putting on some makeup and experimenting with your look will provide that serotonin boost to get you through. Here are a few looks we predict to be circling Instagram feeds this Spring. Which look do you want to try?
This “Fox-Eye” eyeliner is perfect for elongating the eye. Using a soft brown eyeliner or shadow to extend the length of your eye in the inner corner and wing, will add a chic and subtle edge to your look. Using a sweep of Pseudo Labs PHreckles in Shade 03 will pair perfectly with this and get you turning heads during your next Zoom meeting.
Bluer the Better
Blue really is the best for brightening in a bold way. Leveling up your eyeshadow game with a lighter, shimmery inner corner and deeper pigmented base and outer corner highlights those gorgeous eyes of yours. Pairing this look with the toasty tones of PHreckles in Shade 02 is the perfect complement to this dreamy look.
“Naked” Cut Crease
Sometimes less is more. In this case, creating a “naked” cut crease shifts the focus to your eye color. That pop of color is the Spring energy we are striving for! We love that with a few flicks of eyeliner, that base of the eyelid is subtly highlighted and makes the eyes stand out in such a gorgeous way. Adding lashes and a sweep of faux freckles in Shade 02 finishes off the look.
The concealer facelift is the perfect way to shift the highlight of your face upwards. With the help of some concealer and contouring higher than you normally would, the illusion of a facelift is created. Instead of putting concealer completely under your eye, apply it at an angle under your inner and outer corners of the eye. Using bronzer and blush shifted upwards on the cheekbones gives you that added lift. Finishing off this look with a few faux freckles in Shade 01 completes this fresh, natural-looking look.
Colored lashes are the perfect way to spice up your look this Spring. Matching your blush and lashes creates such a bold, gorgeous look. Topping it off with Pseudo Labs PHreckles in Shade 01 adds that pop while making fun eyelashes the star of this makeup moment.
Pearl makeup is that fun and flirty energy we are channeling this Spring. Doing a natural makeup look incorporating PHreckles in Shade 02 and then topping it off with various sized pearls adds dimension. This is such an artsy and iconic look!
Using white eyeliner on the waterline exaggerates the illusion of wide, doe eyes. The eyeliner helps to extend your eyes making them appear bigger and brighter. Using a thick liner for the top lid and bold lashes will make your eyes pop even more. We recommend bringing this look to the next level by adding faux freckles in Shade 01 or 02. You can even layer both shades for some dimensional pigment.
Floral detailing around the eyes is a glamorous and artistic way to revive yourself for Springtime. Using colored liquid liners, a few dots will get you a fun and flirty look that has spring written all over it. We recommend using Shade 03 of PHreckles on the cheeks and bridge of the nose to bring this look to life.
Rosy eyes and lips truly bring about such a romantic makeup look. Creating fluffy brows and concentrated faux freckles in Shade 02 on the bridge of the nose solidify this sweet and flirty look.
