4 Spring Looks ~ 4 Minutes or Less

This morning on the Today Show, they featured an iVillage story about spring trends. To quote the story, "blue eyeshadow is in, lip stains are hot, and you can take the beachy look anywhere." Here are the four four-minute looks they highlighted...and I have products you can use to achieve them. Contact me if you'd like to try any of them for yourself for FREE!

Sexy Stain Look
Apply stain to freshly moisturized cheeks and lips. Simply smile and dab onto the apples of the cheek by softly patting with fingers. Pat onto moistened lips as well. This creates a very soft, simple, and sexy look. Keep the eye simple and classic with a taupe shadow, and line only the upper lash line with a navy pencil. Then, take lashes to the extreme with a double coat of jet black mascara.
Lip & Cheek Stain: limited edition lip duo
Moistened Cheeks: anti-aging moisturizer
Moistened Lips: lip-pampering set
Taupe Shadow
Navy Eye Pencil

All About Eyes
Apply black eyeliner to both top and bottom lash lines. Then, take a Q-tip cotton swab (the ultimate beauty tool) and smudge all the way around. Cheat your way to an easy and effortless smokey eye when you are pressed for precious time this way. Highlight the tops of your cheekbones, then apply a neutral blush onto the cheeks and a nude lipgloss to balance the look.
Black Eyeliner
Highlighter: highlighting pen

Lip Gloss

Beach Babe
The correct way to use bronzer is by applying around the perimeter of the face and then blending in—you will achieve the most believable and real sun-kissed look this way! Then, add the pink "sun" color to the apples of your cheek. Apply a copper eyeshadow onto the lids and a pretty pink lipgloss to round out this beachy babe look.
Eyes: bronze cream-to-powder eye color
Lip Gloss

Spring Colors
Spring is all about a gorgeous wash of color—it must be done right though to ensure you're not looking straight out of the '80s! Apply a mint green or baby blue eyeshadow on the lid from lash line to crease. Add a pop of pink or peach blush to the apples of the cheeks. Finish off with a brilliant fuchsia or nectarine lipgloss to the lips for a beautiful modern look.
