New tips and tricks for revitalizing your winter makeup and switching gears into spring. Expect to see a lot of bright colors, pink cheeks and pale nails this season. Check out these trends to figure out which one will work for your pretty face!
Rosy Cheeks: Powder up high on your cheekbones, to illuminate your bone structure and draw attention toward your eyes. Apply too low; it will look old-fashioned. Use a pearly pink to achieve a natural-looking girlish flush.
Flesh Toned Nails: Instead of working spring’s traditional pale pink polish, change it up with a different breed of light colored nail: flesh-toned. Beige, fawn and ecru are all the rage this season.
Red-Orange Lips: Looking for a lighter alternative to fire-engine red lips? Check out the red-orange shades popping up in stores this season. For a very of-the-moment look, try it in a matte lipstick.
Reverse-Mascara Eyes: Instead of plumping up the lashes on your top lids, channel your inner Twiggy and put more emphasis on your bottom set for an unexpected twist. Apply one coat on your top lashes and three on the bottom, or for extra emphasis, add some falsies to your lower set.
Technicolor Lids: Take a break from your smoke-eyed standby and embrace the return of spring colors with some rainbow inspired eye shadow. Apply light layers of colors like tangerine, purple and blue-green; solidly or all together. Keep an easy hand; shadows should be see-through.
Lilac Lips: Not feeling the red look? Try a more feminine color, like the lilac lips that appeared on the runways during the spring fashion weeks. Pretty and delicate purple is an easy and unexpected way to update your winter look. Looks good in matte, stick or gloss.
“No Makeup” Makeup: Keep people guessing about your flawless skin this spring with the “no makeup” look. Tinted moisturizers, light bronzers and pretty pink blushes keep your skin looking fresh and youthful. Top with clear mascara for an extra dose of doe-eye.
Bold Liner: Winged lids, thick lines or bare tops and colored bottoms; a hot runway trend for spring is bold eyeliner. Popular in virtually every color – white, navy, black or neon – this is look is one every woman can work.
