If you’re feeling a little bored with your current daily makeup routine, maybe it’s time to switch it up and go for a fresh, new look. Spring is the perfect time to switch up your makeup, so today we’re suggesting to take some notes from Kate Bosworth. The 31-year-old actress goes for a soft look, but knows how to extenuate her eyes and lips with a touch of liner and hint of color.
Here’s how to pull off Kate Bosworth’s fresh-faced look:
One way to jazz up your makeup is with a bright shade of lipstick. If you’re thinking that you don’t have the face for a shade like Kate’s orange-red color, you could be wearing it all wrong. For a color like this, don’t stack makeup up and down your face. Instead, wear a light eye color and a blush about two colors lighter than your lip.
Blush doesn’t have to be painted on. Any color on your cheeks will show, so don’t feel like you have to overload. Make sure you’re not going too bright with the blush, unless you have a tamer color. For the bright lipstick above, go a few shades lighter and gently dab it on with a big blush brush.
If you’re going with bright lips and blush, go light on the eyes. Otherwise, you’ll look like you’re trying too hard or like you don’t know how to live without a full face of makeup. Get a light pallet of shadow and use it lightly. Golds pair nicely with reddish-orange.
If you’re going light everywhere but your lips, it’s a good idea to add a little bronzer. Don’t overload all over your face, but gently brush it up and out of your cheekbones, and down the middle of your face, starting above the brow. You don’t need too much on your brush, just get a little bit of a sun-kissed look.
When you have a light look like this, pull your hair off of your face. Put it up on top in a knot, or tie it lower for a loose bun. It’s ok to have a few messy pieces hanging down, so let it free fall and you’ll have a finished look: sexy, soft and perfect for spring.
