Are you looking to shed your winter self? Start with a bright and bold look. These hot makeup colors will help you make a spring splash wherever you go:
Be as bold as a spring blossom by choosing lipsticks and gloss that shine. Depending on your skin tone, berry colors for you could range from blush pink to a deep red. Make your lips more prominent by outlining them with a lip liner in a similar color. Be bold, berry bold. Learn how to master the matte lip, here.
Bright Pink Blush
Highlight your cheeks with a bright pink blush, and add a hint of glitter for an instant glow. You want your blush to be noticeable so go ahead and layer it on. If you want to chisel your cheekbones use a bronzer and gently sweep it below your cheekbone up to your temple. Then add your blush on the top of your cheekbones.
Shine on. Metallic nudes are all the rage. Try them on your nails or your eyes. To make your eyes pop use an eyeliner in a silver metallic hue. Gently line the inner corners of your eye and along your lash lines. You can blend the eyeliner along the lash line for a subtle, softer look or keep them as is for date night. Layer a metallic eye shadow over your eyeliner for even more drama. Try a light metallic color in a chalky pink or lavender.
We get it, it’s easy to apply lip, nail and cheek color, but using pastels on your eyes can be a little more challenging. So keep the base of your eyeshadow and eyeliner color neutral. Then, just add a pastel color like baby blue or metallic white under your eyes or along the corners. You want simple touches, not an overstated look.
We know it’s not a color but here’s the low down: the fresh-faced look is in. Forget trying to minimize shine. Let it glow! Emphasize your glow with an eye gloss or cheek balm. But don’t use too much. Apply only a small amount of gloss to your eyes or balm on your cheeks. You want to have a soft glow, not to look like you just came back from a run.
