Spring Makeup Trends 2017 (Maquillaje para la Primavera)

From Zac Posen to DKNY, Jeremy Scott to Christian Siriano, one makeup trend for Spring 2017 stands out above all: Fresh clean skin. While some designers added bold lips, eyes, and brows, the face was left to the natural beauty of the runway models, and this is such an amazing trend for the everyday.  We can store our full coverage foundations for now, because embracing our freckles and small imperfections are in! Exciting update: I’m going to try and translate a few posts at a time into Spanish!!! It’s not the best right now because I’m used to speaking, not writing. It’s scary but with any skill it takes practice.

I created two looks inspired by SS 17 fashion week. The first is more for daytime. I used a medium coverage foundation and concealer to even out my skin and cover my dark circles. Then I used a peach blush and a little bit of bronzer to add dimension and color. I also used the same blush and bronzer on my eyes to keep things simple. I finished off  with mascara for an easy look that took me 15 miutes tops! The “night” look is even simpler: I added black liner and shadow for an easy smoky eye, and a berry lipstick to add drama.

Day Look for SpringDay Look for SpringNight Look for SpringNight Look for Spring

Casi todo los diseñadores presentarton  un tema en común para el maquillaje del Fashion week Spring/Summer 2017: el rostro fresco.

En esta temporada se puede usar bases de cobertura ligera y guardar las de cobertura completa para mas adelante.

Yo me inspire para crear dos looks differente uno para el dia en el cual use una base de cobertura mediana para igualar el tono de piel. Despues use un blush peach y un bronzer para agregar dimesion y color a la cara. Tambien use los mismos productos en los ojos para simplificar el proceso. Termine con una mascara para un look facil que toma alrededor de 15 minutos applicarlo

El look de noche es mas facil:

Ya que tenemos la base del dia, ahora agregar un deliniardor y sombra negra para crear un smoky eye. Y despues un labial berry para añadir glamour.

Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette 

So Too Faced is one of my favorite brands. They have some of the cutest packaging. I got the Natural Eyes palette after eyeing it a long time. It was gracious gift from my dear friend. I wanted to do a little review because it’s new to me, and I know that someone else may also be looking for a sign that this palette belongs in their collection 

Packaging: 

This is one of the little 9 eyeshadow tins Too Faced has. The packaging for this one is lacey, pink, and adorable. It is really sturdy, so great for travel. The palette has a nice little mirror as well.

Formula: 

The formula for these shadows mirrors the Semi-Sweet chocolate bar palette. They are pigmented but not so pigmented that they would take a long time to blend out. I think this is perfect for someone newer to makeup, or someone looking for a simple everyday palette. They feel super soft when swatching, and barely feel like anything when dusted on the eyelids. 

Color selection: 

This is where I start to have a few issues. Most of the shades are repeated. When swatched, the only difference between them is how warm or cool they are.  Nude and cashmere bunny are similar, silk teddy and push-up are similar, and finally  erotica and chocolate martini are similar.For $36, I want a little more variation. If you have a tan to deep skin tone, this may be a palette of transition shades. There are 4 mattes 6 shimmers. Honey pot is my favorite out the entire palette. 
So I think that is a great everyday palette. Easy colors to work with, such a great formula, and it has a mix of mattes and shimmers.
