Spring Makeup Trends

Makeup Artist and Stylist, Kendra Stanton, joined us today to show us what's new in makeup for Spring! 

Check out Kendra's new blog!

In Kendra's own words, this is her take on the latest Spring makeup trends:

I don’t know about you, but I am about ready to jump into Spring in whatever form I can!  I am over winter, and winter colors! I want a splash of color! So it gives me great joy that Spring makeup trends are everywhere -- department stores and drugstores alike!  Bring on the trendy coral lipstick or lavender shadow!

Trend 1 -- Statement Lips Lipstick trend colors: coral/orange, bright fuscia, and red!
 

Get this look: 

  • To get this look, make sure that your eye shadow choices don't compete with your lips!
  • Choose a pink or peach-toned blush to balance your eyes and lips
  • Keep the blush application natural-looking

 
This Look dialed down: If you don’t feel comfortable with bright lips, not to worry! Choose a lip-gloss in the orange, coral, red, and fuscia color categories! This way you can play up your eyes a bit more!
 

Ideas:

  •  Makeup Forevers Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick, Color: Satin/Bright Orange ($19.00)!
  • MAC Lipstick Color: Show Orchid ($14.50)
  • E.L.F Super Glossy Lip Shine Color: Honey Do  ($1.00)

 

Trend 2 -- Pastels and Vintage:  Soft shades of lavender and gray eye shadows paired with bold, and refined eyeliner. This look pairs well with Trend 1 or a neutral lip ( a must this season). This trend captures femininity and boldness all in one -- it's very “Jackie-O” !


Get this look: 

  • Once you have applied your foundation and blush,  apply a light-toned shadow base to the entire eyelid.
  • Apply a nude shimmer shadow under brow arch and into tear duct for highlight. 
  • Next “press” a cool, lavender shadow on the lower eyelid and blend into your natural eye crease.
  • For a vintage liner look, dip your brush into cake or liquid liner and trace along the lash line, starting from the inside of the eye and working your way out.
  • To get the extended line, ease up on your brush pressure and gently extend past the lash line to where your eyelid has a natural curve.
  • Now go back and do the same thing to get line as thick as you want.

Ideas:

  • Smashbox Violet Vixen set ($42.00)
  • Revlon 12 hour shadow quad in Berry Bloom (around $7.00)
  • Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner (around $9.00)

 

Trend 3 -- Bold in Nude:  If you are not comfortable with all of the shades of color out this season, try sticking with a natural and nude look!  This is a “no makeup” makeup look!
 

Get this look:

  • Your skin should look flawless and fresh with a hint of blush or bronzer.
  • Your eyes should be accented with shades of bronze, browns and pinks.
  • For lips, use a color that is either the same or slightly darker than your natural lip color -- something too light will wash you out. 
  • Lastly….mascara!!

Ideas:

  • Bobbi Brown Pretty Face Pallette: ($60.00)
  • Smashbox Limitless Beauty Collection ($39.00)
  • NYX Natural Look Kit (Around 12.99)
