Day of Beauty: Face Stockholm Spring Collection 2009

As I mentioned in my previous post I'll be reviewing many of the items in the Face Stockholm Spring Collection release but for now check out a complete look of the collection on the Muse!

Face Stockholm's Spring Collection is all about simplicity but with a very chic feel. It's runway beauty at it's best in my opinion with subtle shimmery lids paired up with a popping red lippie. It's easy to wear and ideal for the warmer weather where you want enough but not too much on your face.


I improvised slightly on the look by toning down the red lipstick (I can't pull off red too well) and lining my waterline with the black liner since I stink at cat eyes. The end result was a pretty, simple, yet elegant day to night time look.

For my face I used Face Stockholm Go Natural Mineral Foundation (amazing can't wait to tell you more shortly!) and some Face Stockholm Magic Wand to conceal my eyes.

On my lids I used Face Stockholm Eye Shadow in Pearl, Face Stockholm Vanity Eye Dust, and Face Stockholm Gel Liner. I swept Pearl all over my lid, crease, and upper eye area as a shadow wash since it's very sheer and natural. It preps my eye beautifully and makes them look more awake and refreshed. I followed up by sweeping the Vanity Eye Dust all over my lid and blended up and into my crease. I completed the look by adding a touch of the gel liner to my lower waterline. Finally I applied Face Stockholm Mascara to my lashes!

For my lips I used Face Stockholm Lipstick and Face Stockholm Alert Pot Gloss. You'll see below that I blended the lipstick out by using a good dose of the gloss. I also took a secondary picture with bare lips and just the gloss on, I thought this complimented the look nicely.

Finally I completed my look using Face Stockholm Splendid Blush for a healthy touch of pink!

Here's what I came up with:








I think it's quite nice and minimal! Very pretty results. Although this is a Spring Collection, I have a feeling I'll be making plenty of use out of much of it well into Summer as well.

Love the pot gloss! I find it quite pigmented and lasts a while on lips too.
