Spring gives us the opportunity to take a break from the heavy makeup and dark colors we’ve worn through the fall and winter. And this year, spring has gone sheer!
Sheer is in for beauty and fashion, but let’s just talk about beauty for now. Barley-there lip glosses are making a comeback. These are practically the same colors that we wore in middle school because our moms never let us wear the bold stuff. Think light pinks, peaches, nudes, and purples. But these glosses are not simply light colors, they are sheer colors. When you put them on, they leave a slight hint of color, but lots and lots of shine. These lip glosses enhances your lips, and the colors are so sheer that it allows you to wear them with several different eye looks. You can’t go wrong with that.
With lips so luscious, you have to give yourself a matching flush of the cheeks. Sheer blushes are the way to go. These colors are so light that they literally look natural. We’ve experimented with blushes that gave us a sexy glow, but now it’s time to go as close to natural as possible. These blushes look great with the glossed lips and a natural looking skin. Try wearing a face powder or bronzer (that is only a shade or two darker than your natural skin tone if you want a tan), then add on your sheer blush to achieve the look.
The cool thing about this trend is that you can get the look with easy to find and affordable products. Many products that are less expensive have less pigment, so you can find plenty of sheer lip glosses from brands like Bonnebell and Hard Candy. Get your sheer blushes from brands like LA Colors.
