Go Go Goya this Season

For upcoming makeup trends this season look no farther than our beloved Spanish painter, Francisco Goya. Because this season Spanish colours are in, and as we all know the eighteenth century is never out.

The first look is The Marquesa after the Marquesa de Pontejos' 1786 portrait. Natural is rumored to be the "in" look this spring/summer and this would be a good "day" look.

Start off with a spray of Intimately Beckham for a sophisticated floral scent.

For your eyes, graze them with MAC's Royal Assets Palette (on sale here).

Give yourself some rosey cheeks with CoverGirl's Cheekers is Snow Plum (135)

Smooth some Never Too Busy to Be Beautiful Lip Cream in Bard on your lips.

Lastly, your nails should be pampered with Illamasqua nail varnish in "Collide" or "Demure"

Now I could be getting ahead of myself, but I have a look for fall as well! Although it wouldn't hurt to wear it as a "night" look this summer. This is the Duchess of Alba look, inspired by one of Goya's most interesting sitters.

Make your mysterious eyes smolder with that 'come hither' look with MAC's eyeshadow in "Amber Lights"

Carefully apply MAC's powder blush in "Raizin"

Finish your look with Rimmel's Intense Wear Lipstick in "Fudge Brownie" (242)

As for nails, you have plenty of options when OPI's newest fall line comes out. I would recommend "Bullish" or "Suzi Skis the Pyranese."
