This soft spring time look will give you the chance to try out soft pastels which are both subtle and elegant.  With a spring time look you can really express and experiment with outbursts of colour such as yellows, greens, lilacs and pinks.  Shimmers and matts will work for this look when choosing your eye shadow pallets.  Here at Nanshy we have a spring time look which you can try out for yourself.  Just follow this guide below.

Eye make-up remover – The first step is to remove your eye make-up with an eye make-up remover.  Even if you are not wearing any make-up, your eyelids build up on oil throughout the night.  This oil can make it difficult to apply powdered eye shadows, so it’s always a good idea to wipe them over with some eye make-up remover on a cotton disk.  The skin around the eye area is very delicate and an oil free eye make-up remover will not be too heavy on this skin.

Cleanse – Using a cleanser will prepare the skin by removing any dirt and debris from the surface of the skin.  You can use cleanser which is suitable for your skin type, be it an oily, dry or combination skin to help restore the balance in the skin.

Tone – Toning the skin will remove any remaining skin products and debris from the skin.  Toner also acts as an astringent and so will close any pores up in the skin.

Moisturiser – Using a moisturiser before you apply your make-up will leave give your skin a good surface to begin applying make-up to.  Apply a moisturiser to the face and the neck and leave it to soak into the skin.  You can find a specific moisturiser to suit your skin type.

Foundation – For this spring time look apply a foundation which is slightly radiant instead of using a matt foundation to give the skin a fresh and dewy look to it.  Foundations can be applied with a sponge, your fingers or with foundation brushes.  Using the range of Kabuki foundation brushes produced by Nanshy will give you a flawless and airbrushed finish.  Apply with the Nanshy flat angled buffer brush to spread your foundation over the skin.  After this, use the round buffer brush to smooth over the base to give an extra polished and perfect base.

Concealer – Use a concealer a shade lighter than your skin tone to cover up any discolorations and under eye circles with a concealer brush.  Smooth out any concealer lines using the Nanshy pointed foundation brush.

Powder – Once you have applied your foundation and concealer, use a powder to set the make-up.  Apply using a powder brush or powder puff.

Blusher – For a soft spring time look you want the colour applied in your make-up to look soft and elegant.  For the cheeks, apply a soft pearly or dewy cream blusher in a pale pink to your cheeks with your fingers.  Once you have done this, use the Nanshy flat top buffer brush to blend in the look.  You are aiming to get a well-blended and seamless finish between your foundation and the blusher.

Eye shadow – Soft pastel colours are used in this make-up look.  First, apply a soft matt white eyes shadow to the eyelid up to the eyebrows.  Once you have done this line the socket from the inner corner to the middle with one colour, then the middle to the outer corner with another using an eye shadow brush.  For this look use a yellow on the inner corner, and a green on the outer corner.  You can then apply a second colour, a shade darker than the first green used and use it on the very outer corner of the eyes to add in some depth and blend well.  Once you have done this gently line under the lower lashes in a green and blend in well.

Eyeliner – For this spring look, it is better to use eyeliner which has soft lines.  Harsh eyeliners may make this look appear too harsh for this spring time look.  Instead opt for using an eye shadow as an eyeliner and blend well.  To apply slightly wet an eyeliner brush with water, and use a black eyeliner colour on the upper lashes, and a little on the outer corner of the lower lashes.

Mascara – Apply black mascara to the eyelashes on both the upper and lower lids.  If you like curling your eyelashes use an eyelash curler before you apply the mascara.

Eyebrows – Eyebrows always frame the face, and even with this soft spring look it is important to add definition to the eyebrows.  Use an eyebrow powder or an eye shadow matching your eyebrow colour with an angled brush.

Lip liner – Lip liner can add definition to your lips, and it can also help your lip make-up last longer.  Apply a lip liner in a soft pink.

Lipstick – Apply a lipstick the same colour as your lip liner with a lip brush.  To make the lipstick last longer, once you have applied a layer of lipstick, blot with a tissue then reapply again.

Lip-gloss – Apply a high gloss lip-gloss to the lips with a lip brush to add a shine to the lips.
