Spring Makeup Ideas

All winter long we dream of longer days, warmer weather, and bright colors! Winter makeup can leave us looking washed out and uninspired, but the colors of spring can’t help but make us feel alive. Spring is the perfect season to try out fun lip stains, new bold eye shadow colors, and false lashes. Spring is also a great time to bring back bronzers and highlighters. There are always the “high fashion” makeup trends that none of us dare to try, but the following makeup ideas are suited for everyone.

Candy Apple Lip

Candy Apple Lip We all know a red lip is a staple. This lip color was seen on models and celebrities alike, but can look great on everyone. Candy apple red comes in stains, lipsticks, and glosses. This is a great way to start easing some color back into your makeup routine. You can find this lip shade in almost every brand..

Bright Hued Eye Shadows

Bright Hued Eye Shadows The biggest colors in spring shadows are blues and greens. These hues might not be for the everyday girl, but when applied correctly they can give eyes a huge pop. Blue eye shadow particularly is huge, but you can always be more subtle and try a blue eyeliner. This hue can be found in most anywhere..

Lashes

Lashes Adding a subtle color change to your mascara can turn your black lashes to a vibrant spring blue! Keep your makeup simple and add bright blue mascara for a quick spring eye transformation. If you are not into the bright colors of spring, simply adding false eyelashes can be an easy way to have a simple, but gorgeous spring look..

Bronzer/Highlighters

Bronzer/Highlighters For some of us bronzer is a year round staple! The nice thing about bronzer is that it comes in many different shades (which you’ll want a different shade for each season). Fall/Winter is when the lightest shade should be used; spring is your medium shade, and summer being your darkest shade. Highlighters should be used year round to give that slight appearance of shimmer, and highlight your favorite features. Spring is a great time to be able to start that “just-left-the-beach” look using both a bronzer and highlighter. When choosing bronzer, always get the color tested on your skin in each season, so that your color matches perfectly..

These trends should be fun and you should be confident with whatever trend you choose. Spring is the perfect time to experiment and try new colors and fun products. You will always be the best judge of what looks good and what doesn’t, but you will never know if you don’t give it a try!
