Golden eyes and bright lips are a must for me once the weather starts getting warmer. This look would also work lovely as prom makeup.  It's something easy and screams "Hot!". 

For my face, I used Rimmel's Stay Matte Foundation in "True Beige" and added a little highlight/contour action which, of course, does wonders. I then applied a bronze and peach blush to my cheeks and locked it all in with a setting spray. 
Oh, and let's not forget the gorgeous pop of color(Rimmel's "Back To Fuchsia") on my lips! Apply, blot, and repeat.

NOTD: Springtime Pastels.

 photo DSC06143copy_zpsec184b27.png
Hi Cupcakez! Here's a nice and easy design to try using pastel colored polishes and tape.

  •  NK Base Coat
  • Sinful Colors "Beautiful Girl"
  • e.l.f. "Mint Cream"
  • LA Colors Art Deco "White"
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Topcoat
  • tape

Use your tape as a stencil like shown in the photos above.

Make sure your nails are completely dry. Stick the tape on your hand 2-3 times before sticking it to your nail so that it won't be strong enough to peel off your base color. Paint and remove the tape while polish is still wet.

Then take a nail art brush and paint on the white stripes by following the edges of your design. 
If you feel that this step is too hard, use glitter instead. I find it a lot easier to work with.

Just a little warning.. don't bother buying this e.l.f. polish in "Mint Cream". It was extremely streaky and annoying to work with.

Tag me on Instagram or email me a photo if you recreate this design!
