Spring is finally upon us here in So Cal! I have proof! My daughter picked those gorgeous flowers from our backyard! Nothing better than a handpicked boutique!Like nature, your spring look should transform to add more bold color as the weather warms! Here are 4 ways to go bold with your look this spring:

1. Bright eye color! I’m typically one for neutral shadows and black liner but today, I switched it up to use this gorgeous palette from L’Oreal Colour Riche Shadow Quad in Neon Skirt. I used the gold and purple shades on my lid, the cream as a highlighter and the teal as a liner. The look was a fun contrast to my black and white outfit and a totally doable way for this busy mom to wear a bold eye. While not as bright as some may wear their eye makeup, it was out of my normal but I was still totally comfortable with it.

Here are the key products to create the look:

Go Boldly into Spring

TIP:  If the color is not as saturated as you’d like, mix some of the shadow powder with your face primer.  The primer helps the shadow look richer in color and it keeps it from creasing with wear!

2. Use a brightly colored handbag!  Black is so winter, break out the colors!  Don’t believe those that tell you that your day handbag has to be a neutral!  Wear a cheery color instead, it’s so much more fun!

3. Bold Jewelry Rocks!  Metallic jewelry is your friend but you’ll make more of a statement wearing a piece with color!  If I had worn a silver necklace with this outfit, you wouldn’t be able to see it!  Even a tiny glimpse of color is more interesting than a camouflaged piece.

4. A pretty pedi looks so fabulous against black heels!  Spring is a time for transition and a mixture of seasonal pieces.  While you are still wearing your booties, pull out the brightly colored nail polish for a surprise glimpse at spring!
