Subtle Spring Look for the Career Woman

This look was requested by reader Miranda. She is a busy career woman and mom, and she wanted a "not so colorful spring look" that she could wear to work or a night out. To me, spring is all about glowing skin, rosy cheeks, and COLOR, but just for Miranda, I held back on the color and came up with this more subtle look. Scroll Down for Instructions.
Enjoy :)

This look is very easy to recreate. Use your favorite dewy foundation to even out your skin tone, apply a cream blush to the apples of your cheek ( this will create the glowing from within effect.) Apply liquid Highlighter like Benefit High Beam above the brows and to the temple following a C shape.

For the eyes, I used the colors champagne, blush pink, plum, and a little bit of maroon along with the Urban Decay liner Rockstar to create a smoked out look. For the lips I used Benefit Lipstick in the shade Good-to-Go ( a cream/ plum brown.)

I hope you like it. :)
