Spring Beauty Trends To Try Now

 

Hip hip hooray, Spring is on the way! The days are becoming longer and the nights are becoming warmer, and it won’t be long until it’s time to retire our woolly winter coats for yet another year. Spring brings with it a sense of vitality and exuberance; a fresh, vibrant cheerfulness that’s reflected in the way we present ourselves to the world through fashion and – of course – through beauty. Take your cue from the catwalk and try these top Spring beauty trends on for size...

Nature brightens up and blossoms throughout Spring, and so too should your pout.

Look for subtle eyeshadow colours that create a barely-there wash of colour on the eyelids (like dusty pink, buttery gold, mushroom or taupe) and opt for an eyeshadow with a light-reflective finish. Beautiful Because suggests the following:

Forget boring, washed-out neutrals that drain the life from your complexion; this season nude lips look (and feel) intensely rich, pigmented and utterly luxurious. Those on the fair side should try a deep nude with apricot undertones, while those with an olive or dark complexion can experiment with milk coffee and creamy cocoa hues. Beautiful Because recommends the following:
