Whether focusing on bold lips paired with barely-there eyes, or choosing a natural pucker to complement colorful lids, celebrity makeup artist Virginia Linzee (clientele includes Cobra Starship, Drake, Berenice Bejo and Natalie Coughlin) offers her tips and tricks to get the hottest looks for Spring, thanks to Mary Kay!
1. Lighten up … opt for lightweight coverage to make skin glow during warmer months:
Use Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20 to provide coverage with a dewy finish plus sun protection.
Follow with a spot treatment like Mary Kay Concealer where needed. Complete the canvas by highlighting select areas of the face with the Mary Kay Facial Highlighting Pen for a contoured, glowing complexion.
2. Dare to wear a bold lip keeping eyes sheer and neutral:
Transform a statement lip into everyday chic with Virginia’s “popscicle pout” by focusing a bold color like Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Berry Tart on the inner part of the lip, then smacking lips together to blend out and fade the color to the lip line.
Apply a sheer color like Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Beach Blonde to the lids for the perfect hint of illumination.
3. For eyes that demand attention, create a colorful smoky eye with the rest of the face soft and natural:
Create a smoky eye with the shade of your choice (purples, greens and blues are fun for Spring) and finish with a bold complementary line in Mary Kay Eyeliner in Violet Ink or Rich Jade.
Flaunt Spring’s brown lash trend with a swipe of Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara in I ♡ Brown for naturally defined lashes. Complement rich eyes with a soft pink or neutral lip using Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Pink Parfait or Au Naturel.
