As I look out the window on this frozen morning, the snow reminds me of how pale my typically olive complexion has become. I think of spring’s promise lurking somewhere under the snow, of all the delicate blossoms yet to bloom, and how their subtle colors are the perfect transition from winter .
Not many colors say spring like pink, and this year’s crop of spring makeup collections run the gamut with offerings for every skin tone as well as taste.
From a pale peachy blush for cheeks, to a bright peony lip, spring’s fresh makeup bouquet will warm our pale complexions and make us believe that some day soon the snow will melt!
NARS Edge of Pink Spring 2014 collection available exclusively at Nordstroms is all about pink. From pinky pink to peachy pink blushes, chubby lip pencils, and a beautiful lavender pink skin illuminator; - perfect to help transition pale winter skin to the lovely shades of spring.
Here are a couple of my favorites:
