Well, on the Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Jason Wu, Carolina Herrera and many other runways for Spring, we saw red lips, rose lips, pops of colorful eye shadow, tanned dewy cheeks, super smoky eye, 60s inspired cat eyes and white silver metallic eye shadows. When deciding what trend to use, I suggest taking into consideration your clothing and destination.
You definitely do not want to overdo it. For during the day, opt for a more casual look, by focusing on rose lips with some shimmery white silver eye shadow. If rose is your thing, try applying a creamy lipstick on your cheeks as well, and patting it in with your fingers. This is a wonderful way of getting the most out of your makeup. Additionally, cream blush lasts longer than powder blush. So now your lipstick is 2-1. Tanned dewy cheeks would go wonderfully with a soft pastel shadow for that pop of color.
For a night out, try red lips , cat eyes or the super smoky eye. Remember that you do not have to only use black eye shadow for your smoky eye. In fact, try using purples, gray/silver, or dark blues. I mean, it is all about color this Spring, so why not start by incorporating it into your smoky eye. If you want to try cat eyes, opt for a liquid eye liner and concentrate on the curvy tips. Get false eyelashes to up to dramatic effect.
Makeup should be fun and it should enhance your features. Always remember to balance it out. The pop should be on your eyes or lips, but not both! Go out of your comfort zone and give new colors a try.
