Spring makeup

Hi there!
My first makeup for you will be this neutral smokey eyes! I just love the way the brown and the pink champagne shimmers melt. I think it's beautiful look for all eye color. I paired it with bright pink lips, to bring even more contrast to the look. For me this is the perfect spring makeup with the slightest touch of pink and a soft smokey effect on the eyes!

I first applied Catrice Fancy A Coppa Tea (a dupe for MAC All That Glitters) with a Sigma E60. Then I blended MAC Wedge on the upper lid and my crease using an E40. Taking an E35 I applied MAC Handwritten in the outter corner and blended it into my crease on a smaller part upon Wedge. I added a little bit of MAC Carbon on the very outter corner with a E35 and blended it to make sure it melted with the browns. Then I used a E40 and blended Catrice New In Brown to create a kind of halo above the crease. Then I applied Maybelline gel liner and CoverGirl Lashblast mascara. For the lower lashline I used a precise angle brush with Handwritten and I drew a thin line with a black pencil liner. I did my eyebrows as well with a Catrice brow pencil. For my face I used a Bourjois foundation in soft beige and L'Oreal true match conceler in Vanilla. I put some bronzer using a large fluffy brush (such as the F20) to make the edge smooth. I used a peachy pink blush just on the apple of my cheeks and to contrast and bring color to the look, I used Maybelline Color Sensational in the shade 906 Hot Plum

The full look (and myself as you can see!)

And as an extra, my nails, pink Essie nail polish (breast cancer edition) with golden glitters

What do you think of it? What's your favorite spring makeup?
