Seasons and colors

Hmm ... about makeup colors for warm days: neutrals – beige, cream, white, pink, gold, light orange, copper, all of them look amazing during a warm autumn or spring day, when the nature just gets one more breath of fresh but warm air. In summer, when it’s really warm already, I suggest no or very little makeup on your eyes, just so you look fresh, otherwise the heat can melt everything or make it look like too much. For summer you could also dust just some light glittery shadow (just one shade) on your lids and get that lovely gloss on (in pink, tangerine or very light red). Blue, purple and grey, heavy colors, I like to wear during cold days. Green I feel fits any kind of weather. You can see in the pics below what I mean. For the lips I love ‘alive’ colors in summer, but for when it’s cold I only use either a color awakening thing (like so many companies sell – Dior Addict Lip Glow or Smashbox O-Glow) or a simple pink gloss or just some colorless lipbalm (I love Labello Hydro Care!) because my lips get so very dry.

The colors are arranged so that they reflect what I ment. I chose to only show you my M.A.C colors because it’s nicer to view them like that, the shape of the containers doesn’t change that often :)
