Spring is almost upon us. Soon we’ll be tucking away our sweaters and boots in favor of flirty dresses and sandals. When your wardrobe changes, you should change your makeup routine as well. Check out the hottest looks in makeup for spring. Here are five spring makeup trends that you shouldn’t miss.
Poppy red lips
The red lipstick trend won’t fade away when the weather warms up. This spring, get into red lipstick in fabulous shades of poppy and cherry. These bright shades of lip color look fabulous for daytime or a special night out. We love Laura Mercier Gel Lip Color in Poppy, only $22 at Nordstrom.
Let’s go retro for spring. Try the cat-eye look with a ’60s flair. And you don’t need to stick to black eye liner when it comes to this look. You can pull off this makeup in shades of navy, green or plum. At night, add a little sparkle to your cat-eye makeup with glitter liner. You’ll adore Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner, $18 at Sephora.
Strong eye brows are once again on-trend this season. So don’t overpluck! When you tweeze or wax your brows, just get rid of the strays outside your natural browline. Then, if your eyebrows are sparse, fill them in and add a little color with brow powder.
Silvery metallic shadow is hot for spring, especially for daytime. This runway look is carrying over to the city streets in a big way. Look for silver eyeshadow infused with just a hint of blue like this glitter shimmer mineral eye shadow, available for $4 at the kmms Etsy shop. When you wear eyeshadow with any shimmer, tone down the rest of your makeup — bare cheeks and a pale matte lipstick are fabulous options for spring.
Though dewy skin offers a fresh, young look, this spring matte skin is in. Use mattifier or primer under your foundation to keep the shine away. We love Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer to Go, priced at $16-17 at Sephora. If you want to add a little gloss to your look, do it with lip gloss or a hint of gel cheek color.
