It might sound cliche, but Spring truly is a time of renewal, hope, and freshness. The winter is retreating and we can see warmer days, Summer fashion, and the end of Netflix-and-hibernation on the horizon.
Get yourself in the mood for the loveliest seasons with these easy bright Spring makeup looks!
Bright pink lips
One of the easiest ways to update your look for a new season is by simply picking a new lipstick shade. My go-to color for Spring/Summer is a bold pink like the OTT Love Stone lippie. A color like this says fun, fresh, excitement! It’s a great way to incorporate color in a feminine, playful way.
Pair with gently bronzed skin and bare eyes with nothing but mascara.
Tangerine is such a brilliant color to incorporate into your Spring makeup routine, especially if you have blue or green eyes. For this look, I buff Amber from the You’re a Gem palette all over the lid and simply top with Palm Springs from the Eyechella Festival palette for a touch of sparkle. Repeat the colors along the lower lash line for more of a pop.
Pair with a balmy lip, peachy cheeks and a gold highlight.
Bold pink blush and mint eyes
Pink blush is my best friend at the moment. I apply it high on the cheeks and it just gives me such a young, alive, flattering glow. To make things a little more interesting for Spring, I’ve been pairing my flushed rosy blush with mint green eyeshadow and the combo is delightful. I use the knockout shade Jade from the You’re a Gem palette all over the mobile lid with a little bronzer in the crease. I add a thin black liquid line with a slight wing and plenty of mascara.
Our favorite blush at the moment is the RMS ReDimension Hydra Blush in Pink Rose ($35) which I buff into the high cheeks and toward the temple.
Pair with a soft pinky balm or clear gloss such as the Dandelion clear lip gloss.
Purple and green party eyes
Party time! Get those French 75s poured and go bold with a regal purple and green look using the Scorpio palette. It’s easier than it sounds! Simply pack a purple shimmer shadow such as Sensual into the inner corner, a green shadow such as Wild or Secretive into the outer half, and repeat on the lower lash line. Buff a neutral taupe or bronze into the crease to add warmth and soften the edges of the green and purple. Add falsies and a simple nude glossy lip!
