Sunshine and Daisies – Spring Boho Chic Makeup With Glo Minerals

[PRESS SAMPLE / AFFILIATE LINKS]

Spring flowers and refreshing showers!  I am so excited Spring is finally here.  For me, Spring is the time of year where I embrace my more natural side wearing minimal makeup or a soft eye look that looks effortless and is easy to create.  Since I’m a busy mom and constantly on the run, I am always on the hunt for a makeup look and brand that will provide me “easy mommy makeup” that caters to my style and my skin’s needs.  Today, I have teamed up with the lovely ladies of The Beauty Council in collaboration with Glo Minerals to bring you gorgeous Spring looks for the season.

With my sensitive skin, I’m constantly adapting to new products or changing my needs as I feel required.  The same goes for makeup for when the seasons change, so does my makeup routine.  From deep, sultry, smoky eyes I tend to switch things up a bit and concentrate on looks that are quick, effortless and allow me to be done in a hurry.  Most of my Spring routine consists of mascara and a lippy or a soft highlight, but when time allows, I love to add just a touch of drama to pull the look all together.

Boho Chic Makeup with Glo Minerals
For my look today I chose to use Glo Minerals for a soft and sweet Boho Chic inspired look.  This look is all about the blending and each shade is applied with a blending brush to create a soft look that is both wearable and easy.  The goal for this look is to create added dimension while still giving your overall appearance an almost “no makeup” look.

As with any of my makeup looks, I start with a moisturized face that also includes sunscreen since I plan to take advantage of the sunshine that Spring shared with us.  Since I do not use foundation, I started on with my eye makeup.

Glo Minerals Eye Shadows

Next, I applied an eye shadow primer to my eye lids to keep my eye shadow in place so it will last all day and night through the warmer  and humid weather.  I used Glo Minerals Eye Shadows in Twig (blended into my crease and used as transition between my crease and browbone shade), Haze (swept under my brow bone for a natural highlight) and Sand Pebble (applied on my lid and inner corner for a soft shimmery pop of color) and Orchid (blended softly into my crease to create definition).

Once I finished applying the eye shadow, to keep with a more natural look, I decided I would apply two coats of my favorite mascara and let my lashes peek through instead of applying eye liner like I would normally.

Glo Minerals blush

To add a soft touch of flush to my cheeks, I applied Glo Minerals Blush in Papaya.  With a fluffy brush I swept the shade over the apples of my cheeks, blending it out so that the shade would offer a soft kissed glow to the look.

Glo Minerals Candle Dual Shimmer

For a soft glow and a little highlight, I took a soft large face brush and swirled both sides together of the Glo Minerals Candle Dual Shimmer compact.  With a light hand I swept the brush along my cheek bones for the perfect highlight.

A cool note is that Glo donates a portion of the proceeds from sales of the Candle Dual Shimmer to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Way to Go!

Glo Minerals Suede Matte Stick

To add a subtle shade to my puckers, I used Glo Minerals Suede Matte Stick in Bliss and applied directly to my lips.  This lipstick feels like satin on the lips, applies wonderfully and has lasting color.  If you are a matte lipstick lover like I am, you will surely love this one.  It’s a great nude if you want something to add a little “Your lips but better” to your pout.

Conditioning ingredients include:  Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Mango Seed Oil and Shea Butter.

Since I have really sensitive skin I am always looking for products that provide great skin loving benefits.  Glo Minerals offers mineral makeup that is designed especially for skincare professionals and their clients.  Their formulations provide coverage, UV and environmental protection and offer a wide spectrum of mineral pigments.  Each product is formulated without Talc and since they are non-comedogenic, Glo Minerals is an ideal choice for me and my sensitive skin.

Since my skin can go crazy on me while transitioning between seasons, I’m always looking for a cosmetic product that will not cause it to stress out.  I am loving the powerful blend of antioxidants Vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea Extract that you can find in their products as well as UVA and UVB broad spectrum sun protection.  These products are definitely a great addition to anyone’s makeup arsenal, but for me, I find these make for great wearable shades and provide my skin with the love it needs during the Spring months and year round.

What I love is that Glo Minerals is perfect for different skin tones and ages.  Looking for more inspiration?  The lovely ladies of The Beauty Council have also put together wonderful looks and pictorials using Glo Minerals.  Search hashtags: #glominerals #thebeautycouncil and #getGLOing on Social Media for photos and links and check out what they have in store for you too.
