In Spring; The Earth Laughs with Flowers
|Spring Makeup & Flower Crown by: Jennie Matthie|
I decided that since there was so much going on for trends this Spring that I would pick a few of my favorites and show you how you can achieve the look using exclusively Arbonne's vegan Cosmetics!
YESS you can in fact get amazing quality, high pigment makeup without having to endorse the animal cruelty industry! Seriously if you haven't done so already I BEG you to look into the testing procedures used by the companies that produce the products you buy and be sure that it is in fact something you want to Support!!
Never allow the current trends to dictate your entire style - Not every trend works for everyone, I like to play with a few different makeup looks/trends and see which ones I like/feel best in. I find that there are a few 'tricks' or techniques that work well for me and suit me best ( I will share my 'everyday make-up look in the near future) and so I just switch up little details with the seasons, for special events or whenever I feel like doing something a little different. For me make-up has always been about self-expression!!
I am absolutely obsessed with flower crowns, of all shapes and sizes! I have been just dying to incorporate one into a post somehow and could not think of a better more suiting time than now. This one is made of hemp & daisies which just so happen to be Kelsie's ( my beautiful model) favouite flower.. & does she ever look gorgeous crowned in them - can you say meant to be?!?!

Always start your make-up with a really good moisturizer - Arbonne's Calm is always my Go-To!!
I Followed this with Perfecting Liquid Foundation with SPF 15 . I used the Sheer-glow highlighter, & Perfecting Liquid Foundation in a slightly darker shade to highlight and contour. - If you are looking for tips/a step by step on this see the Chart posted in Pretty in Pink & Bombshell! The Perfect Valentines Makeup Tutorials - Using Exclusively Arbonne Cosmetics
I did a super simple two-tone eye shadow - using 'Petal' (which is a pale pink) in the inner half of the eyelid sweeping it outward across the lid. As well as 'Smoke' in the crease of her eye. I highlighter her tear duct, and brow bone with the Sheer Glow highlighter as well. (this is one of my absolute favourite combinations for everyday wear - one you will catch me in about 70% of the time!!)
I finished off the ENTIRE look with a super Bright Berry Lip using 'Candy' Lipstick which in-case you hadn't noticed is my absolute favourite lipstick.. & for good reason, it honestly just brightens your entire face! I curled her hair using my straightener to give her that tasseled/beachy look & finished the look off with the Daisy Flower Crown!!
