The warmer weather and gorgeous flowers that are blooming all around have really been inspiring for my wardrobe and my makeup routine. I’ve been going for bright pretty lips and shimmery golden eyes.

This eye product is something that I’ve been using non-stop since I picked it up at Sephora.
It’s called a watercolor eyeshadow and that’s a good name for it because it is has the consistency of a true liquid, but don’t let that fool you because it’s packed with pigment.
I did two swatches in the picture above. If you want it to be bold you can apply the color and let it get tacky before blending it out, or you can blend it when you apply it for a sheer shimmer. However, if you want it to be more opaque make sure you don’t let it dry completely because the dry time is rather quick and it doesn’t budge once the product has set.
This is used to be one of my all time favorite eyeshadows from MAC a few years ago and I recently re-purchased it and fell in love with it all over again. It looks so pretty on the eyes and also looks beautiful layered on top of the Josie Maran watercolor eyeshadow. If you can’t tell I’m loving rose gold 😉
3. Kat Von D Ink Liner in Trooper
I’ve tried the Stila Stay All Day liner as well as the Kat Von D tatoo liner and I have to say that the Ink liner tops them both in my book! It stays in place all day long, is ultra black, super precise, and has Kat Von D’s patented no-fray tip.
It makes doing winged liner a snap, or just doing a thin line when I want to go for a more simple look.
4. Lasting Finish Kate Moss for Rimmel Lipstick in 109
I really like this shade. When I bought it I was a little apprehensive. I usually go for deep or cherry reds and this one definitely has orange undertones. It just brightens up your whole look and keeps it fresh while still making a statement.
The only thing that I’m not big on is that this lipstick doesn’t last well throughout the day. You have to re-apply a couple of times and some of it did transfer and move around throughout the day. I’m going to try and look for an orangey/red lip liner to pair with it.
This gloss is great if you want something that is really pretty that you can just throw in your bag and apply without a mirror and still have it look nice. The consistency of the NYX butter glosses are so nice. Just as the name suggests, they feel like butter on the lips and this candy pink goes well with the golden eyeshadow tones that I’ve been wearing lately!
