April is without a doubt a ‘spring’ month, but with all the rainy days, it can seem a little more gloomy than one would hope. If you’re struggling to get into the springtime mood and not yet ready to break out your pastels and florals, we suggest looking at our Bon Voyage Eye Shadow Quad to achieve an easy spring eye shadow look. It’s the perfect neutral palette to complement any skin tone, with hints of cream, blush, taupe and brown. Use one or two colors for a simple wash over the eye lids or amp it up for a softer version of your favorite smokey eye.
Looking for more inspiration? Our Sr. Global Makeup Artist/ Educator Janeena shows you how to create a stunning spring eye shadow look, perfect to pull you out of your April slump.
As a makeup artist, Janeena knows the importance of prepping skin before makeup application. For this look, she prepped her skin with her favorite skin products to complement her combination skin including:
- Hydrating Gel Cleanser
- Phyto-Active Toning Mist
- Daily Power C

She then used the following beauty products to achieve a healthy bronzed complexion:

- Liquid Bright Concealer Brighten and Sunburst
- Cream Blush Warmth
