fresh spring makeup with color {Victoria Jackson}

I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of Victoria Jackson® and One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.

Right about this time of year, I start to really play with color in my makeup.  My always nude lipstick some days becomes bright hot pink or purple and my blush gets a bit bolder.  My neutral eyeshadow perks up a bit, maybe even some shimmer finds its way in.  Something about the warm weather and the floral landscape of spring brings out the adventurous color in us, right?

Always on the hunt for something new or better in the makeup world, I was excited to try out a few Victoria Jackson products.  Foundation can always be tricky, who the heck ever finds their perfect color?!  I have an olive skin tone which looks really horrible with orange or peach foundations, I mean really horrible.  I also struggle with consistency, something that covers well but isn’t cakey is a must!  Typically this all means I end of making my own blends, trying to match my color and create a texture that is flattering.

The Victoria Jackson Foundation Duo allows me to match my face quite well with it’s two different shades in one compact.  The consistency is very creamy, which I love for my dry skin.  It covers INCREDIBLY well.  Like wow well.  The coverage actually reminds me of concealer, perfect for under eye darkness and uneven skintone.

Long ago I jumped on the NARS Orgasm and then Super Orgasm blush bandwagon.  I literally didn’t purchase any other blushes until recently when I realized I might be missing out.  I have been exploring cream blushes, which work well with my dry skin, but am really loving the color of the this Victoria Jackson Perfect Everyday Blush.  You do need to be careful with this high pigment blush.  Be sure to tap off excess or you will be blending for days, which is a good thing.  A little blush goes a long way with this one -very flattering for a wide range of skintones.

When I was in my earlier 20’s I abused bronzer.  I wore it like it was going out of style, despite having a natural SoCal tan year round.  Then I stopped wearing bronzer altogether because I thought it was too young.  Finally, I realized bronzer is excellent for creating contour when used correctly – now we are BFFs again.  The Victoria Jackson Here Comes The Sun Bronzing Powder is highly pigmented like the eyeshadow so be sure to blow or tap off excess before applying. It brushes on quite nicely and stays on all day (like the rest of these products) and gives that healthy sun-kissed glow.

Mascara is another area where I am brand loyal.  DiorShow mascara has been my mascara of choice for a decade now because it is pretty perfect.  I was weary of trying a new mascara but the Victoria Jackson Lush Mascara is SO super great!!  It doesn’t clump, rather coats individual eyelashes for a natural look.  Natural, yet still has OOMPH.  My eyelashes look longer and have a nice curl without the use of an eyelash curler, which I almost never use.  High five, Victoria Jackson, seriously.
