More often than not I'll go for a quick and sheer makeup approach. The natural finish and no-fuss application appeal to me over spending forever on a full face. Plus, since spring is almost here, a fresh face is my cup of tea!
These are some of my favorite "sheer" makeup essentials for a fresh and flushed makeup look.
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer - This is hands down the best tinted moisturizer I've ever tried. It has the perfect coverage, goes on smooth, and lasts all day. Perfect for those who enjoy a light to medium coverage.
MAC Select Cover Up Concealer - I love this concealer because it covers just the right amount, is super blendable and doesn't crease. The formulation is easy to apply and goes with almost any foundation.
bareMinerals Hydrating Mineral Veil - The Hydrating Mineral Veil is super light weight and perfecting - sets my concealer and foundation in place all at once!
Milani Baked Bronzer (Glow) - Glow is a sheer bronzer that adds a hint of a golden sheen to the skin. Nothing too dark or over powering and great for every day wear.
Clinique Allover Face Color (Almond Blossom) - I hadn't heard much about these until I picked one up at my local CCO in the shade "Almond Blossom". Technically this isn't a blush but that's what I like to use it for. I love the highlighted effect and sheer color.
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow (Sandy Gold) - Another recent discovery - this cream shadow stays put all day and gives my eyes a pretty wash of color. It's easy to pair with winged liner and a coat of mascara for a simple eye look.
Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick (Sheer Rapture) - These formulas have been my favorite lately! They provide sheer to medium coverage on the lips and keep them moisturized ALL FLIPPIN' DAY LONG!
