Spring Make Up

Now that winter is winding down and spring is in sight, we need to say goodbye to our to-die-for plum lipsticks and hello to some new beauty trends.

White was not only huge in apparel this spring, but we saw it on the eyes of the models as well. White eye shadow can be a bit daunting, but a nice white eyeliner on the lower lid or along side a sleek liquid line on the upper lid can be just the right touch. Let’s see what designers showcased white-eyed beauties on their runways.

If white eyes are too much for you, try going au natural. It’s a look that’s been around forever, literally. Try enhancing your natural features by contouring and filling in your brows. This look isn’t about hiding flaws or looking different. It’s all about highlighting  your favorite facial features (that’s some fun alliteration!).

The red lip made its way to the runways, as it tends to do, because it’s so timeless. This isn’t the dark burgundy we were all wearing during the winter though. It’s bold, bright, and matte.

If you’re even bolder than the oh-so-bold red lip, try out orange. Neon orange was a huge hit on the runway. Something so bright and eye catching can be intimidating to put on, but there’s something sweet and flirty about it.  Can you pull it off? Now’s the time to try!

With bold colors being huge in fashion, of course eyes need to be just as bold. From standout colors to barely there pastels, not many colors are out of question.  Spring is your  perfect chance to wear that purple eye shadow you “had to have” and only wore a couple of times. What better way to liven up a neutral outfit?!

Last but not least, LINE THOSE LIDS! Raccoon eyes are actually in. Why couldn’t they have been when I first discovered eyeliner in middle school and rocked this look, unintentionally, all the time? Not just a fully rimmed eye, but a thick cat eye or a strong statement making geometric shape, can make you feel like one bad ass chick. Go ahead and smear and smudge that thick black line around your eyes, but with purpose of course.

As my boyfriend always tells me every time I’m getting ready and get too into picking out my outfit, “It’s not what you wear. It’s how you wear it.”

Take a leap of faith and try something bolder than what you normally would, or if you always have a dominating look try going natural. Now is the perfect time.
