7 Spring Makeup Trends

Ever wanted to be ahead of the curb and incorporate some new makeup trends into your usual routine? Even though we’re still in the midst of winter, we have compiled a list of makeup looks which are sure to be huge, during the spring and summer months ahead.

Lip stains

Pretty-in-pink lip stains are a fun trend throughout the entire year, since they include a pop of colour into a mundane makeup look. Achieve this look by gently dabbing your favourite lipstick onto clean lips. Then simply add a touch of pressed powder over the top for the much-coveted stain effect.

We recommend: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis Glossy Stain, $50

Voluminous lashes

Rather than getting eye-lash extensions, save yourself a bit of cash and work on volumising those natural lashes. Many lash serums help to strengthen eye-lashes and prepare them for mascara. Don’t forget to curl your lashes before carefully applying mascara to both the top and bottom!

We recommend: Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes, $40

Dewy skin

Forget about that matte finish – spring is all about achieving a dewy look to your foundation. Swap those full coverage foundations for a much lighter application, so your skin can also breathe and catch a break. Tinted moisturisers and BB creams offer light coverage and work with the skins natural texture.

We recommend: BECCA Luminous Skin Colour, $68

Coloured liner

Sometimes black eyeliner can prove to be too harsh – especially for girls with light blonde or strawberry blonde hair and a pale complexion. Opt for navy, purple or brown liners which bring a pop of colour to tired eyes, and will cheer up your entire look; minimal effort required.

We recommend: Revlon ColorStay Creme Gel Eye Liner, $24.95

Luminous cheekbones

A clever highlight and illuminating combination is often the secret to luminous and glowing cheekbones. A little goes a long way, so don’t try and pack it all on at the same time. Gently work the product into the skin with a damp beauty blender, or your ring finger since heat will allow it to set into a natural finish.

We recommend: Nars Illuminator in Copacabana, $48
