I usually don't do seasonal makeups looks --just done a few since I started this blog. Is not that I don't like to, it's just that, well, the weather here is almost the same all year round. So to me, winter and spring are almost the same. The weather is just a bit cooler.
Today I wore a nice, coral shade shirt you see in the next pics for work; jeans and safety shoes completed the whole look! LOL. I like to add some color sometimes because, yeah, I get bored of the usual neutral colors in clothes and makeup. This shirt (JMS.com) has a nice coral-pink shade that I just love. So I looked for some makeup to match with it. I guess it turned out pretty monochromatic, but I really liked it.
Oh, since I've been wearing mostly ponytails lately, I've been trying to learn how to contour better, just to give some 'dimension' to my full, big face. I think it makes a huge difference, just look at some previous posts.
++The makeup I applied today is the one I do when I need to stay all day looking decent, without worrying about how my skin looks or about touch-ups; I can really say I applied it 7AM and it was 5PM when I used blotting paper; and no, it does not feels cakey on my skin or anything like that, which I love!++

PLEASE NOTE: I've included links to pics of some of the products, taken by other beauty bloggers/makeup addicts.
♥BORGHESE Prima Viso Face Primer -- always a favorite; applied with my fingers
♥ESTEE LAUDER Double Wear Light Makeup, Intensity 3 -- just bought it and love it; I applied it with a Beauty Blender and buffed it in with my Coastal Scents Bionic Flat Top Buffer Brush
♥MAC Select Cover Up Concealer in NC 35 -- under-eye area and plane of the cheeks, applied with my fingers
♥BENEFIT Powderflage Concealer -- under-eye area, applied with a MAC 224. Honestly, this powder is great: it does not provides coverage but it helps so much preventing the concealer to get into the fine lines under my eyes
♥MAC Prep+Prime Finishing Powder -- all over my face, specially over the pores on my cheeks; applied with the Sephora 49 brush
♥MAC Powder Blush in Blunt -- to contour: hollow of my cheeks and temples; I used MAC 109 brush
♥MAC Powder Blushes in Peaches and Spaced out (LE--Neo Sci-Fi) -- I used the MAC 168 to apply both, Spaced out on top of Peaches for a subtle shine
♥MAYBELLINE Dream Matte Powder in Beige Medium -- applied with a powder puff, pressing it gently against my skin, specially the t-zone: that really helps to diminish the size of my pores
♥MAC Fix+ Spray -- for the powder to blend with my skin, helps the makeup looks more natura
♥REVLON Illuminance Cream Shadow in Skinlights -- I used the second shade from the left (I don't like these shadows on their own, but sure are a good base); applied with a MAC 192 brush on the eye lids only
♥MAC E/S in Expensive Pink -- on the eye lids, applied with a MAC 239 brush; patting the e/s gently against the lids. I used the same brush to apply some e/s in the lower lashline
♥MAC E/S in Brule -- on the crease up to the brows; I used the MAC 217
♥MAYBELLINE Define-a-Brow Pencil in Dark Brown
COVER GIRL Lash Blast Mascara in Very Black
♥SALLY HANSEN Healing Butter for Lips -- as primer
♥REVLON Shiny Sheers in Peachy Sheen -- I wish Revlon'd bring those lippies back, I really like them
