A new approach to color in beauty!

Scared of bright colors? This year, it's time to turn that around! Mint is hot and it doesn't take a lot to make a fun and bold yet elegant statement with this beautiful shade.

There were a lot of awesome beauty trends all over the spring runways. My favorite? Rich, dewy and uncontrived skin with a pop of color! I've seen everything from lilac to coral to blues, but today we are going to talk about mint. It's the perfect color for making a statement while staying classic and chic at the same time.

Mint lips like the look above are super fun, but if you're looking for a more subtle way to add the color to your beauty look, eye makeup is the way to go. Let's get started!


Apply mascara

After you've applied your foundation, bronzers, mascara (false lashes if you dare!) and lipgloss, try a mint mascara! Apply it to only your bottom lashes for a fun touch of color that isn't over the top.

Now for one small touch that really adds an extra sparkle to your eye. Find a very soft, light and reflective mint green shadow to top your eye lid.

And there you have it! A look that isn't too over the top or screaming with color. Just enough to put a spring in your step and change up your look!

Extra Tip

If incorporating mint into your eye makeup or lip shade is too scary or dramatic for you, keep it simple by painting your nails with the perfect shade of mint and add a pop of glitter for good measure!
