As the weather gets warmer and the days lighter, our makeup often naturally follows suit. However, if you’re hesitant to leave the deeper, darker shades of the cooler months behind, Kjaer Weis has the solution. Striking the perfect balance between fresh, dewy and floral tones and a sultry, seductive smokiness, Weis’ modern take on the smokey eye is sure to take you from the office to the dance floor in seasonal style.
To achieve the radiant, dewy complexion that this look calls upon skin preparation is key! Begin by cleansing the skin with REN Skincare’s Rosa Centifolia 3-in-1 Cleansing Water, perfect for those with sensitive skin. After application, skin feels purified, fresh, revived and toned without tightness or dryness.
Next up apply a light spritz of De Mamiel’s Dewy Facial Mist – a protective barrier that nourishes, soothes and strengthens the skin. Follow with Dr Jacksons 02 Skin Cream – the perfect dryness alleviating, inflammation reducing moisturizer to transition the skin into the warmer months.
Now that your skincare prep is completed it’s time to move on to your base. Kjaer Weis Skin Perfecting Foundation is perfect for achieving that Springtime glow due to its semi-matte finish requiring no setting powder to complete. Begin by layering on as much coverage as needed, concentrating on the areas of skin where its needed the most.
Once you have achieved your desired coverage consistency its time to move on to the eyes. Begin by sweeping Cloud Nine from lashline to brow bone. To create depth and shape, brush the medium brown Wisdom shadow from the lashline to the crease, up towards the brow, and in towards the nose. Using a thin brush – we recommend ECOTOOLS Bamboo Flat Eyeliner Brush, define the eye by applying our darkest shade, Onyx, along the upper and lower lashlines. Blend Onyx into Wisdom on the top lid, until the two colours seamlessly meld into each other. Finish with a slick of mascara.
To counter a done-up eye, Pat on Kjaer Weis Blossoming Cream Blush into the apples of the cheek to create a fresh and rosy appearance. Lastly, combine Bliss Full Lip Tint with a dab of Foundation and apply with a lip brush to create that perfect lipstick-like matte texture to complete the look.
