how-to: spring 2013 trend – aqua marine eyes

getting ready for spring? it’s time to pull out some colourful eyeshadows and to shop for some new makeup goodies to add to your collection! flipping through magazines and browsing online, i was inspired to create a aqua marine makeup look to reflect the spunky colourful liners seen on the runways this spring season.

loulou magazine also featured this look in the march 2013 issue:

this is my version using the new shu uemura spring 2013 dream blossom blue palette:


this look is so easy to recreate:

FACE: keep skin soft and fresh using minimal makeup

  • cleanse skin using cleansing oil (i like to use the fresh one – pink bottle)
  • hydrate skin so that makeup smoothes on nicely; for very clean and fresh looking skin, i recommend using the hydrabtility intense moisture filling
  • apply shu uemura bb perfector cream – available in stores in canada
  • lightly dust loose powder matte to areas that tend to get overly shiny i.e., nose and forehead
  • spritz face with depsea water (i’m currently using mint)

EYEBROWS: for a softer spring look, shape eyebrows so that they are more straight than arched

  • shape eyebrows using shu uemura hard formula (i use seal brown)
  • soften them using brush 6OB
  • i like to set my brows in place using the shu uemura brow manicure in ash brown

EYES: i used the dream blossom blue palette for this look. click here to read my review on the palette.







  • make sure lips are well moisturized. i like to use the depsea hydrability lip balm.
  • apply new ob sakura pink rouge unlimited for a cute pink pout


have fun experimenting with this trendy aqua marine look!
