Marc Jacobs really has everyone covered with the brand’s spring offerings – love your reds? Then you must check out the Le Marc Lip Creme lipsticks [my favorite of the bunch being Core Cora]. Can’t get enough neutrals? Say hello to New Nudes. Loving the whole No Makeup Makeup, I Woke Up Like This face [a la Dakota Johnson on the cover of Vogue]? The Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Palette will help you achieve it.
As you can imagine, I’m very into the whole spring neutrals craze – for lips, face, eyes, nails, and yes, even clothing. So naturally I was drawn to the New Nudes line. What I appreciate most about these lipsticks is that there is a shade that suits everyone.
The two shades shown above are Have We Met? a beautiful sheer bright pink with shimmer, and Role Play, a lovely sheer, sophisticated rosy brown that is perfect for any day, and any occasion. If you’re familiar with Marc beauty then you’ll recognize these names – the lip gel line contains slightly deeper, more pigmented versions. I own Have We Met? in the original formulation, and it does appear brighter and more pink on the lips. It’s great for a stronger pop of pink on the lips, but I prefer this toned-down version for everyday.
Onto the contour palette – Dream Filter – isn’t she a thing of beauty? I’ve never been a massive fan of contouring, but the brown shade in this palette is subtle enough, and also the perfect neutral brown matte tone, for achieving a very natural contoured look. I like how it is on the sheer side, so there’s no need to worry about picking too much product up with a brush and looking like you’ve just drawn a thick brown line on the side of your face. I use a small Sigma contour brush, pick up a bit of product, and then draw a v-shape starting at my temple, coming down underneath my cheekbone. I then blend this line out with a fluffy blush brush. I sweep the lighter shade shade on the tops of my cheek bones, and down the bridge of my nose for a natural looking highlight.
