For daytime this spring, you don't need much makeup at all; the natural, no-makeup look is in. Just use a dewy tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone and you'll be good to go.

The cat-eye look takes a modern twist with unusual colors or glittery liner. If you haven't mastered the cat-eye look yet, get some help from the Stila The Purrfect Cat Eye Talking Palette. It's on sale at Amazon for $23.

Though the natural look is hot for spring, it doesn't mean you can't go high-glam. Doll-like false eye lashes are still a trendy look.

The sun-kissed look gets kicked up a notch with super-bronze cheeks this spring. Don't lie in the sun to get this look; grab some liquid or powder bronzer instead.
