I'm in a great makeup mood!

I'm in a great makeup mood!

Have you been one of the many hoping the temps will warm up and that spring is here?
It has been a rough winter for everyone around the world.
Be it pollution, cold or hot climate change, or just simple fatique, it's time to pamper ourselves.

Colors are very important for creating the right makeup mood.
There are different moods we want to create depending on the occasion.

Have you ever worn blue eye shadow or mascara?  What a great pick me upper and wonderful to bring out hazel, green, blue or dark brown eyes.
You can keep your lips light and neutral with a glossy effect while playing up the eyes with all sorts of blue shades.  Powder blue, tourquoise, navy, indigo, cobalt, teal, irs, azure, electric blue to name a few!
Line the eyes with a navy liner and finish with navy or midnight blue mascara.

Think pretty in pink for that happy and healthy look.  You can choose to have your eyes, cheeks and lips be in the same tones or mix it up a bit.
Pinks vary so to be safe going plum or dusty rose is the easiest.
You can wear petal pink, silver, or plum gloss to dress up the look.

It you're looking for a bold look, go for a nice rich red or bordeaux lip, keep the eyes and cheeks very neutral.
You can wear a little liner and mascara to finish the look.

Try going gray for a sexy appearance.  Gray is a great color to play with since you can use light blue, lavender, white, silver, pink, green and many others to wear with it.
Line the eyes with black or dark gray eyeliner and add your mascara for that smoky look.
Go soft on the cheeks and the lips.  The key here is to focus on your inner sex appeal which begins with the eyes!
