Sweet Apricot Spring: Face of the Day (FOTD)

Hello, my beautiful readers! Today I bring you a FOTD inspired by the delicate and sweet macarons I picked up this morning. Macarons are one of my favorite things in the entire world; just one bite transports you to a dainty Parisian cafe. I have no way of getting them where I live, so every time I go on vacation it’s always a little mission of mine to find a cafe or bakery that sells them. The soft orange color of the apricot macarons inspired me to do this fun spring-time look today and I thought I’d share it with you. Let’s get into it!



The first thing I did was apply my MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation with a round, and fluffy foundation brush all over my face concentrating mostly on my nose and my forehead where I need more coverage to create a flawless and airbrushed finish. To conceal the dark circles around my sleep-deprived eyes I used the Covergirl Invisible Blemish Concealer and gently blended it in using my ring fingers.

On my eyes are various shadows from my trusty Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. I love taking this palette with me when I travel because of its versatility. I applied a burnt pinky-peach shadow all over my lids, a medium brown in my crease, and then pressed a gold shimmery shadow over the brown just to add a little extra glamour. Finally I lined my eyes with a near-black eye-shadow and finished it off with black mascara.

To add some fun, spring color to this look I used a fluffy blush brush to apply the Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Peach Pop on the apples of my cheeks. This a gorgeous color to wear on your cheeks in the warmer months and it was works great for this look because it almost perfectly matches the color of my apricot macarons! I love wearing lip-gloss in the springtime, so of course this look would not be complete without a shimmery peachy-pink lip-gloss. I’m wearing the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pango Peach (I did a full review on this gloss here).


I hope you all found this post enjoyable and helpful! Sorry for the delay in posting…being on vacation tends to make me a bit more lazy than normal. I hope you all are having a glorious Spring Break if you are on it, and even if you’re not I hope you’re having a lovely week! I’m going to go indulge in a few more macarons now. 😉 xoxo
