How to Create a Luminous & Colorful Spring Look

It’s officially Spring and with flowers blooming everywhere and the seasons shifting comes a fresh new wardrobe and beauty essentials. If you’ve been following me recently on Instagram, you might recognize that I am obsessed with a “dewy and luminous” look! It’s all about the products you use and the way you apply them. I love being able to create a colorful yet easy look within 10 minutes. With the right skin prep, add some illuminating drops and a lip tint..and YOU ARE SET TO GO!

Today, I’m sharing three ways to create a luminous look with using the new Limited-Edition Illuminating Drops from Mary Kay.

Mary Kay just launched three pigment-packed drops that are not only universally flattering but can be used in various ways.

First thing’s first, make sure you prep your skin with moisturizer before adding any product. I let the moisturizer soak in for about 5 minutes before I continue with the rest of my routine because It’s important to start out with a hydrated base.


1. After you add your moisturizer, you can wear the drops on bare skin. If you are skipping your foundation, you want to highlight the peak points of your face where natural light would enhance your features. I place a drop or two directly onto my fingertips and dab along my cheekbones, above my brow bones and the above the cupid’s bow.

2. The formula of the Mary Kay Limited-Edition Illuminating Drops is lightweight but buildable so you can also mix it with your current foundation. Mixing it will break down your foundation to be more sheer and also finish it off with an overall glow. This will sheer out the drops for a more subtle luminous finish.

3. If you’re looking for a full glam look, place the drops over your foundation for an added glow. The dropper cap allows you to control how much product is dispersed and you can continue to build up until the desired illumination is achieved.

The Silver Sands shade has a moonlit shimmer while the Horizon reflects a natural warmth. The Bronze Light is more for a sun-kissed glow but all can be used as a subtle highlight as well as an added pop of gleam.


If you want to create an overall glow, you apply the drops to your collarbone and the shoulders for an all over highlighted finish.
To finish off the look, I added a lip tint. Mary Kay also released the new Lip Tint in three color ways that are lightweight but very pigmented.

  1. What I truly love about these lip tints is the pen-like application that makes lining and filling the lips very easy with the precision tip.

    1. Make sure you start off with clean lips. Since I struggle with overly chapped lips daily, I always use a scrub and a lip cream to moisturize.

    2. Use the tapered applicator in the center of your upper lip and work your way outwards. This will allow you to create the shape of your cupid’s bow first then line the rest.

    3. Wear the lip tint alone for a pop of subtle color.

    4. Use it as a base to boost the color of a lipstick or gloss as an added pop of color to finish the look.
    Finish everything off with a face mist and you’re good to go! Are you guys going to try this makeup look? Let me know in the comments below!
