Question: What are the best makeup trends for spring 2014?
Answer: Even though spring is still technically a few weeks away, it doesn’t hurt to start planning new looks for the upcoming warmer months (I mean, people do that, right?). Spring is all about brightening up your look with light, spunky colors. Check out this list of products to help bring your spring beauty regime into full bloom:
- Bright lip color can complete any look in no time at all, and what better time to experiment with color than spring? Colors that are really hot this season? Oranges and corals. Try MAC Vegas Volt, which is a subtle yet absolutely gorgeous coral color that is especially perfect if you’re a beginner easing your way into the color game. Another way to get a fresh burst of color on your lips is by trying Covergirl’s line of Colorburst Balm Stain in Romantic. These lip colors couldn’t be any easier to use and will give you the look of a stain, only with the feel of a balm. I’ll take one in every color, please!
- Bright shades scream spring, but neutral colors are pretty contenders as well. The nude lip is a great trend to try for all skin tones, and as an added bonus, they don’t leave a ring of stain around the outside of your lips!
- Another way to instantly liven up your makeup look is by trying a cream blush. Choosing bright pinks and peaches scream spring. Plus, they’ll give you that sought-after natural flush. Try Nars The Multiple in Sheer Pink or Apricot.
- Although shimmery shadows can be worn year-round, spring is the perfect time to try pastel and uber-feminine shimmery shades. Stila has an awesome eye color palette called In the Garden, which is inspired by botanical colors. Shades like Breeze and Nectar are beautiful peach-y tones and Sage is a great taupe/gold shade for Spring as well.
- Bright eyeliner shades are totally in this spring, and can make your eyes pop from miles away. Great colors to try are blues, greens, and golds. You can apply the color as thick or as thin as you like, or you can apply waterproof liners along the waterline for extra pop.
