Beauty Boost.



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.

  1. These looks are great! It's so funny because they don't look too out of the ordinary, but trying that out on myself always makes me feel like a weirdo. Maybe we should take the challenge and try it out. I have a pretty yellow/orange eyeshadow in my palette that I could try...

  5. These pics are gorgeous! Love the bold colors and yet they're really neutral and not too harsh. These are great for spring
