Happy Monday everyone! Well, I've said it before and I'll say it again: I LOVE SPRING. It's just such a great season. It kinda makes me want to frolic in a meadow of brightly-hued daisy gerberas, while singing "The hillsssss are aliiiiiive... with the soooound of muuuusicccc..." with a small army of children mimicking my every move behind me. So get your governess-y aprons and dresses ready, and prepare for spring with these three super simple makeup looks! And bonus points: most of these makeup looks are using only drugstore beauty products. YES.

LOOK 1: BRIGHT ORANGE LIPS
 This look will literally take you five minutes- if that much. I've been really into bare eyes + bright lips lately, mainly because as a senior in college, my senioritis has kicked into overdrive and I can barely be bothered to do anything. So, for this look, I kept my eyes completely bare, with the exception of mascara. For mascara, I used the No. 7 Extreme Length Mascara in Brown/Black, which is an amazing everyday mascara. On the cheeks, I used Milani's Baked Blush in Rose D'Oro. For the lips, I used Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Audacious. And that's it. Really!

LOOK 2: SOFT, PASTEL EYES
This look is just a soft purple smoky eye, and takes two seconds and just one brush. Okay, it might take anywhere from 60-120 seconds depending on your mood, but for realzies... It's pretty easy. I just used a blending brush, and then the No. 7 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow Trio in Forest Fruits. I used the lightest shade in the trio and swept it all over the lid and blended into the crease. Then I took the midtone purple and blended it on the lid and lightly into the crease. Next, I used the darkest shade in the trio and blended it on the outer corners of the eyes, and smudged it under the lower lashline as well. Next, I took a black pencil liner and smudged some black onto the upper lashline (I used Vapour Mesmerize Eyeliner in Black). I finished it off with the No. 7 Extreme Length Mascara.

For the cheeks, I used Milani Baked Blush in Rose D'Oro, and used the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked, which, by the way, is the perfect nude lipstick.

LOOK 3: NAVY BLUE CATEYE
And now for my favorite look of them all: the navy blue cateye. Okay, so this *may not* be as easy as the other two looks- it just depends on your comfort level with doing a cateye. If cateyes take you forever and a day to do, then this probably may require some practice. But for you seasoned pros: this is pretty easy! But newbies, it's alright- I used a pencil liner to do this look, so you can totally do this, too!

First, I took the Milani Liquid Eye Liquid-Like Eye Liner Pencil in Aqua, and created the winged eyeliner shape. It doesn't have to be perfect, because we are going to perfect the line with a small detail brush and navy blue eyeshadow. Next, using the same eyeliner, apply it to your waterline and lower lashline for extra definition. Taking a small detailer brush, I used a dark navy blue eyeshadow and sharpened the winged liner a bit (I used the dark blue eyeshadows from the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette). I think used a light, shimmery eyeshadow and applied to my inner corner. For mascara, take a wild guess (the No. 7 one!). On the cheeks, I am using the Le Metier de Beaute blush/bronze duo in Traviata, and used the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked on my lips.
