I recently stumbled upon these images by David Slijper while doing research for Rue's Beauty Beat. I am a total beauty product junkie- but rarely experiment with new looks on my own face. Every day is the same: foundation, bronzer + blush, mascara, and lip gloss. If I'm going out... I just add a lot of eyeliner and end up looking like Megan Fox circa 2003. Only the bad makeup part... I sadly don't get her perfectly constructed face. Whatever. When I saw these gorgeous pics, I was immediately motivated to step out of my comfort zone and try a more colorful look this spring.
The lip colors are perfection, and while the yellow and blue eyeshadow may not suit my skin tone... I can create a modified version by incorporating it on a smaller scale. A total makeover with a few strokes of a brush- genius.
To see my favorite products to achieve these electric looks, head right this way to Rue Daily.
