Giving You a Spring Beauty Update with No Pants On

Spring is in the air! Pants are on the ground!

The warmth of March, the sunshine outside, the occasional NYC snowstorm thrown in for good measure, makes me want to change my hair and update my beauty products. I typically go bleach blonde this time of year, a ton brighter than my usual natural color with highlights around my face and ends. I'm not ready for the big change yet, so I'm starting slow, with my beauty routine, brighting my lip color, using foundation that leaves my skin dewey, and adding lighter eyeshadows.
I recently discovered Lancome's Rouge in Love lipcolor in Corail, a gift from VF Agenda, a brighter hue that is perfect for the transition between seasons. The color is soft, gentle, but eye catching, noticeable but not in your face, enough color for day and enough oomph for evening.
This has been my daily look for a few weeks now, wearing Teint Idol foundation, spread all over my face with my fingers, with extra attention around my sleepless dark circles. I add a touch of eyeshadow to my lits, the lightest color in the VIP Entrance shadow quad. A bit of Doll Lashes Mascara and I'm out the door. If headed out for the evening after work, I add a bit of the darker shadow to the crease and a smudge of gold to my inner eye, to look more awake after a 12 hour work day.
Sometimes, before Spring, you have to take your pants off and just let go!
