Hello everyone! Today, I've got a super exciting makeup look to share with you, sponsored by one of my favorite makeup brands, Rimmel, though #CollectiveBias! Rimmel is one of my favorite brands for #BeautyInspiration, and drugstore foundation and mascara, which I will be highlighting today! As you can see below, today I'll be using Rimmel Stay Matte foundation and (my favorite!) Rimmel ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara which I picked up from Walmart. (Plus, stay tuned until the end of the post for your chance to enter to win over $50 of Rimmel products!)

Today I'll be showing you how to do one of my favorite looks for spring- a fresh retro look! I am definitely into pinks for spring- especially on cheeks and lips! So today's tutorial will show you how to mix the perfect cat-eye with fresh pinks for your lips and cheeks. Let's get started!

Spring Retro Makeup Tutorial

First, start with your Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation and apply with a makeup brush or sponge. I was extremely happy with this foundation- it truly does stay matte all day!

Next, apply your blush to the apples of your cheeks. I like to take some extra foundation on a sponge and blend after applying the blush, to make it look more natural.

Next step- the cat eye! There are many different ways to achieve the cat-eye look. Typically, I simply start with a thin line starting about 1/4th in from your tear duct, and gradually build on it until you get your desired thickness.

Next, apply your Rimmel ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara! Let me tell you, I've been loyal to the same brand of mascara for years, and this has converted me! (I might go into that in another post). Apply two liberal coats to the top lashes, and one to the bottom lashes.

And finally, finish it off with some pink lipstick!

And there you have it! I am absolutely in love with this look, it has become my go-to for this season. This would be a great look for prom, weddings, or even a fun date-night!
