3. Beauty & Make-up
The key items to remember this spring are:
  • Natural finish - make-up that looks as if you have nothing on
  • Smoky eyes - but with soft neutrals, browns, bronzes, etc.
  • Thick, and long eyelashes (real or fake - doesn't matter)
  • Pastel eyeshadow and blushes
  • Soft colors on lips, peaches, nudes, apricots
As you can see, its all about softness and femininity this spring and THANK GAWD, because the bright red lipstick was killing me.
