I have to admit I’m not as excited about spring colours this year as I have in previous ones.
My typical go-to would include fresher pinks and peachy tones but I’m not as apt to lean into those as much this year–it just seems, too much…
I do use hints of those hues on my cheeks and eyes some days, but it’s very subtle this year, especially when I barely leave the house except for a run or if I have a medical appointment or the rare grocery trip.
I still like to feel good though, so I’m wearing makeup, it’s just more subtle, neutral tones on a luminous canvas.

Light and glittery. In fact, we should probably strike “light” from the record and just highlight “glittery”. Just…so much glitter.

But things are feeling better than they have in over a year so it’s time to celebrate with glitter!

Playing with the same coppery-red green-gold multichrome over and over again…love! Looks so cool blended into forest green, peach, or orange.

I’ve done a lot of pastel halo eyes: I put one color in the inner corner and blend toward the middle and a different, usually complimentary, color on the outer corner blended toward the middle, and then merge the two with a pretty shimmer in the center of my eyelid.

Lots of two-tone pastel looks with shimmery lids. Today, it’s a pink lid and inner crease with a pastel teal outer crease and a slightly darker teal outer corner. I’ve so been using peaches and a lot of glittery looks like the previous commenters.

With this spring being what it is, nothing particularly spectacular or “oohs & ahhs” worthy, except for yesterday. Most years, I go more colorful and interesting than other seasons. Not this year.

My go-to spring look has been a metallic wine smoked out eye or a lighter neutral brown gradient to match my wardrobe. I like mixing metallics, mattes, and glitter toppers. I’ve been pairing the shadow with an ombre structured brow and lush falsies. (This year, my spring wardrobe colors are washed out blushes, dreary blues, pops of crimson, and ivory.)

So far, I’ve gone for a lot of lavender, sparkly pale neutrals, and mauves. My ColourPop 9-pans are inspiring me.

As it is autumn here, I have been doing a lot of autumnal looks, using my neutral palettes like ND’s Glam, Huda’s Smokey Obsessions and Chanel’s Tisse D’Automne. But I have also used a few others – like Lancome’s Sparkling Intoxication for some green/teal and gold inspiration.

That just sounds so nice, autumn is my favorite season and someday I’ll travel to the southern hemisphere so I can experience it twice. 🙂

I am also going with a bit more color after the cold, dreary Winter we just came off of. All of the brighter palettes have made me go way out of my comfort zone of browns, beiges, tans, taupes and creams. I even put on blue eyeshadow after such a long time.
