Hughes explained the Spring season celebrates the confident woman who looks for fun in her beauty; the woman who exudes a wealth of self-assertion all with a matte fingernail to wave through the day.

Houghton explained her deliberate use of pastel and water colors while constructing a natural look using MAC cosmetics.

  1. Eyebrow Gel
  2. Tinted Moisturizer
  3. Mascara
