Spring makeup trends
With the warm spring weather, your makeup should look a little more natural and fresh. Check out the latest makeup trends for spring, including gold eye shadow and pretty pink lip gloss.
Choose makeup colors inspired by nature--soft brown, subtle green and pale peach. These shades are wonderful choices, no matter your skin tone. For a spring day, use a brown eye shadow complemented with green liner. Add peach blush to the apples of your cheeks and finish off the look with a dab of neutral lip gloss.
Even if you are feeling a little pale at the beginning of spring, you can get that sun-kissed look with a bit of bronzer and golden makeup. Apply bronzer using a large fluffy brush. Use a color that's just a shade darker than your natural skin tone, so that it doesn't look fake. Apply the bronzer where the sun naturally hits your face--your forehead, nose, tops of the cheeks and chin.
Lighten up your look and add a little glitz by wearing gold eye shadow. It really opens up your face and eyes. Don't overdo it. If you want to wear gold shadow in the daytime, apply it only to your lids, and use beige or white eye shadow from the crease to the brow bone.
Pretty in pink
Every spring, pink is a popular color in fashion and that holds true for makeup too. Pink makeup is very flirty and fun. Play with baby pink eye shadows, cheek color and lip gloss for a feminine look. For a pin-up girl look, add black eyeliner on top, extending a little beyond the corner of your eyes and flared upward. Curl your lashes and add two coats of mascara.
If you haven't done it yet, make the switch from traditional makeup to mineral makeup this spring. Most conventional cosmetics contain ingredients that can be potentially harmful to your skin. In contrast, natural mineral makeup is actually good for your skin. It's free of fragrance and chemicals, plus protects against free radicals. Mineral cosmetics allow your skin to breathe and don't seep into pores. Follow these tips about how to apply mineral makeup and achieve a flawless, long-lasting finish.
