- About Hailee Steinfeld
I was inspired to do this makeup look, when I saw Hailee Steinfeld's Capital Letters Music Video. This was her first look in the video in a hotel room and I loved how glowy and simple it looked. She has even slightly lighter warm brown eyeshadow paired with rosy cheeks and lips. So I created my own version that is perfect for spring. I'm sick of this snow that keeps on hanging out in my backyard, so I'm already in the spring mood. Hence the spring makeup look.

This eye makeup is very simple. I started by applying a light wash of golden brown color all over my lid. Then I added a slightly cooler yellow gold on the center of the lid. I used very creamy black pen liner to create a tight line around the lashes.

I smudged the line and just slightly pulled it out and up. I also used matte chocolate brown shade to smudge over the black pen line and soften it a bit. Around my lower lash line I used the same light wash of golden brown shade.

On the inner corners I used a bit of shimmery champagne gold shade, but not as heavy as I usually do. I skipped false lashes, although Hailee definitely had them in her video. Instead I just applied a lot of coats of volumizing mascara and I think it looks dramatic enough. I used very small amount of mascara on my lower lashes, concentrating the color only very close to the roots. My lower lashes are long and can quickly overpower upper lashes, so I tried to avoid that.

On my face I used a BB cream and concealed with concealer. I also set it with powder. For bronzer I decided to use mineral powder that is too dark for me, but has that beautiful yellow base to it, so the look gets that warmth that eyes have as well. I did use a bit of my regular more grey toned bronzer only under my cheek bones to define just a bit.

This look wouldn't be as romantic and fresh without that glowy blush. For that I used matte mauve colored blush and applied it on the apples of my cheeks. Usually I bring it more back, almost as a draping or contour shape, but this time I tried to leave it on the apples. I also applied light pink toned highlighting blush shade on top of it for that extra glow. I did also use champagne gold highlighter on the points of the face that I usually highlight.

For the lips I used a mixture of brownish pink and more mauve pink. I also applied duo chrome golden pink lip gloss on the center of upper and lower lip, making sure to get it on top of that cupid's bow as well for that juicy highlighter lip look.

Every spring I dig out my pinks and I feel this year is going to be no different. This is a good simple warm and rosy makeup look that is perfect for adding that color to your face after a long boring grey winter. It brightens up any complexion and I like that it doesn't involve a lot of eyeshadow work. I even curled my hair to make it look more romantic and similar to Hailee's.
