As spring represents new beginnings, this year’s makeup trends are about giving yourself a fresh start. It’s also all about having fun and being yourself. Keep reading to discover some of the most popular spring makeup trends this year.
Like bright springtime colors, blush is a big trend this season, especially mid-tone blushing. This technique blends under-eye makeup and blushes to create a seamless finish. Take a fluffy blending brush and lightly apply a sheer setting powder like the Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder on your under-eyes. Then, use a blush one shade lighter than the one on your cheeks, to diffuse the translucent powder into your blush.
Similar to the eyeliner look where inner and outer corners are lined, a siren eye look is beautiful and sophisticated. To create siren eyes, pat a waterproof eyeliner pencil on the tip of an angled liner brush, then stamp it on the inner and outer corners of the eye to get a straight wing. Try the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliner Pencil from Sephora for a waterproof eyeliner that goes smoothly and lasts all day.
Caked-on makeup is now a thing of the past as more and more people love the minimal makeup routine as it looks like their own skin. Heavy products are out, and lightweight foundations and concealers are in, especially ones with bright finishes. We recommend Bobbi Brown’s Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation and LAWLESS’ Lightweight Full Coverage Concealer, both available at Sephora.
Pastel Makeup Looks
Pastel colors and springtime are synonymous, so it’s no surprise that soft colors are big. The wonderful thing about this trend is there’s no right or wrong way to do it as long as there’s color involved. Whether you want to smudge bright eyeshadow across your lids, dust a layer of vibrant color across your cheeks, or add a little splash of color on your lips, using pastel makeup is the way to go.
