FOTD: The Look of Spring

On this cold and snowy day nothing seems less more appropriate than a face of the day featuring my go to look as the snow melts and flowers begin to bloom. Though I do love winter, I think it's only normal to start to long for light jacket weather (40 degrees Fahrenheit at the very least, please?) and the season of flowers and beautifully scented rain storms.

Based upon current makeup releases and Spring/Summer 2013 trends, this season is all about perfectly executed base makeup, glowing skin, subtle eyes and va-va-voom lips. I've been using up my well loved bottle of Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup—I'm in an ongoing search for something slightly more dewyand pairing it with "une bouche qui claque," my current favorite of course being Burberry's phenomenal Siren Red Lip Glow in No 19 Mallow Pink. Paired with natural wavy hair, my favorite brown leather jacket and a spring dress this is unquestionably the "look of spring" chez Getting Cheeky.
