Spring Makeup Looks We Love
Spring calls for plenty of cleaning, a little wardrobe rehauling, and a definite makeup routine change. What you use over the winter months just won’t cut it when the warmer weather kicks it into high gear, but don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. This spring we’re trading in our vampy lipsticks and dark smokey eyes for fresh colors, dewy skin, and a sun kissed glow. Care to join us? Read on to see some of our favorite spring makeup looks and our advice as to how to achieve them yourself.
Jessica Alba is the queen of natural beauty, and this look is no exception. We love her ultra dewy skin and the rose colored lip she’s rocking. We recommend a great peach-rose blush like NARS Sex Appeal, reflective highlighter like NARS Albatross, and a frosted lipstick like MAC Please Me. Don’t forget to carry the highlighter across the brow bones, on the bridge of the nose, and into your cupid’s bow for a full-on dewy masterpiece.
Rihanna’s makeup is always flawless and fresh, which is why we love this look for spring. Pair an almost-matte lipstick in poppy red with big lashes and a touch of bronzer for a “look at me” spring look. We love MAC Russian Red for the lips and Benefit Cosmetics Watts Up highlighting stick for just about everything else – including a bit of shimmer on the lids! Remember, go easy on the cheeks and eyes when rocking a bold color on the lips – particularly in spring and summer when looks tend to be softer and less harsh than fall/winter.
Cara Delevingne is one of the most in-demand models right now, and we can certainly understand why. She’s gorgeous, yes, but she also knows how to rock a lovely lip. For a similar look, we love NARS Heat Wave or OCC Makeup’s Lip Tar in Queen. For a contrasting pop of color, apply a little bit of turquoise liner in the lower water line. You’ll be looking spring-ready in no time at all.
This particular look is all about frost and highlighting. We say pick up Make Up For Ever Diamond Shadow and use it in the inner corner as well as across the lid. If you’d like, you could use this shadow as your highlighter too! Finish off with a couple coats of mascara (we love Benefit They’re Real) and a swipe of Revlon’s Super Lustrous Pearl lipstick in Porcelain Pink.
