In case you haven't heard, this spring is officially the season to ditch your boring neutrals and embrace shades that are brighter than bright — whether it's coral on the eyes or Carribbean blue on your tips. Of course, Revlon makeup artist and beauty-trendsetter extraordinaire Gucci Westman is on it, and her spring '14 capsule collection for the brand is her most colorful and bold yet.
From a super-saturated eyeshadow palette that combines both purple and yellow (way more flattering than you'd think as demonstrated by Revlon spokeswoman Olivia Wilde) to metallic-blue cream eyeliner and a matte fuchsia lippy, the "Rio Rush" collection features both shades and formulas that are normally only found in pricier products. Plus, the cornerstone of the collection is Westman's personal favorite: The Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in Beach Bronze. It's a super-sheer lotion that can be dabbed onto the skin to create the most believable faux glow, ever — even on the palest of skin tones. (And, considering how Westman's skin seems to have a lovely, tawny tint year-round, she's definitely the woman to trust when it comes to bronzers.)
It gets even better. Not only does Revlon want to give your makeup bag a spring-ready update — it wants to pass along some sweet tunes to get you warm-weather-ready as well. Revlon has partnered with Pandora to create playlists that correspond with their customizable Shadowlinks eyeshadows. Simply head over to the Revlon channel on Pandora, click on the ad to create your own Shadowlinks palette, and Pandora will create a station that will reflect your color choices. Pretty makeup and spring-ready tunes — what better way to officially chase away the winter blues?
