Spring is a great time to refresh and revive your makeup style and try new looks that have you looking vibrant and feeling fresh. Here are our top 7 spring makeup looks and trends that you are going to want to try ASAP!
1. Dewy skin
The ‘less is more’ approach is perfect for spring makeup. No matter your eye and lip makeup styles, a dewy face makeup is a must have for the spring season. Use a lightweight foundation to add a natural coverage that allows your skin to breathe. If you only have a matte foundation on hand, simply mix some dewy primer and liquid highlighter to instantly amp up the glow and give your skin a natural-looking finish. For an even more minimalistic spring makeup look, ditch the foundation altogether and go straight in with concealer. Make sure the concealer matches your skin tone and undertone exactly to get a seamless, second-skin look. Use the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool to find your exact concealer shade match and use it to lightly cover acne scars, dark spots, and under eye circles.
2. Glowy blush
To take your glowy base up a notch, add a touch of shimmery blush to the apples of your cheeks to make them appear plump and hydrated. If you want to give your face a more youthful and lifted appearance, apply the blush slightly higher on your cheekbones and take it upwards towards your temples for an instant face-lift. You can also dust a light layer of highlighter on top of your blush for an ethereal spring makeup look.
3. Bold and beautiful brows
If you have always been jealous of celebrities rocking their naturally full brows, you have nothing to worry about, you can recreate the same with an eyebrow pencil. For a light spring makeup, keep your eye makeup simple and minimal and keep just your brows as the focal point. Using a spoolie, brush through your brows in an upward direction to give them the untamed, feathered look. Next, using short, hair-like strokes, fill in the sparse areas in your brows to make them appear fuller. You can then go in with a clear eyebrow gel if you want to fluff them up more and set them in place so they do not budge all day long.
4. Green smokey eye
Love dramatic smokey eye makeup? Here is how you can make it spring appropriate – instead of using brown and black eyeshadow to create a classic smokey eye, use a vivid green eyeshadow shade all over your lid and smoke it out with dark brown to create the ultimate spring eyeshadow look. Finish the look off with some black eyeliner or kajal and add a coat of your favourite mascara to get fluttery and curled lashes.
5. Floating eyeliner
Another fun way to play around with your spring makeup look is to switch from a traditional eyeliner to a graphic eyeliner look. The floating eyeliner style is the perfect way to grab attention without looking over the top. All you need to do is place the eyeliner just above your crease, following along the shape of your crease, without touching the inner and outer corners of your eyes. And that’s it! A simple yet stunning eyeliner style that is much easier to create than the much-dreaded winged eyeliner.
6. Colour blocking
No spring makeup is complete without vibrant colours. For a bright spring makeup look, mix and match some fun colours on your eyes for a colour blocked effect. For example, use a pink eyeshadow shade all over your eyelids and then add a contrasting blue eyeliner on your lower lash line to add some oomph to your everyday makeup look. You even use matching shades from the same colour family if you want to play it safe. If you have never used a coloured eyeliner before, head over to the Maybelline Virtual Try On tool to try on different eyeliner shades virtually so you can find an eyeliner shade that suits your style and one that you feel your best in.
7. Ombre lips
A bright coloured statement lipstick is one of the most common ways to get your makeup spring ready. Why not use a bold lipstick shade and create ombre lips instead? Pick out your favorite coral lipstick and tinted lip balm and follow this ombre lips tutorial to add colour to your pout in a fun way and upgrade your spring makeup look.
