Spring is here, and while it may still be snowy and cold in some parts of North America, the Spring season has already been showing up in stores and magazines. Even if it isn’t quite time to wear short sleeves and sandals, we can slowly start planning for 2015 with some Spring additions to our wardrobe and beauty routine. There is nothing like a shot of spring colour to make you feel good and get out of the Winter doldrums. Every season there are new beauty trends and colours that are seen on the runways that we can incorporate into our own beauty habits. Some of this year’s Spring trends in beauty, are simple pretty and can be easily added into our own makeup routines.
- One beauty trend on the Spring runways was fresh-faced-bright-skin-look. While that isn’t really an easy look to pull off unless you are very young, some of the elements of this look are worth trying. For example, BB Creams instead of foundation are a newer addition to the beauty world, and are essentially a tinted moisturizer and much lighter in coverage. A BB Cream can create a more dewy look rather than a matte foundation, and this evokes a more youthful appearance. Some BB Creams to try are Jose Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer, or Dior Nude BB Cream.
- After a few seasons of trendy, colourful nail art, this spring it has gone back to a more neutral nail look. Polishes like Essie, in Topless & Barefoot is the perfect colour for a more subtle manicure. Other options are a half-moon manicure with two neutral colours like Dolce & Gabbana Innocence and Nude. Another overall bare look can be achieved by painting a basecoat over top of the coloured-coat, which essentially mutes the colour and acts like a filter over the nailbed.
- Purple, lavender and lilacs have made a comeback in eyeshadows and there are plenty of mauve-y options if you are looking to Spring-ify your eye makeup. Colours like Boudoir Eyes from Too Faced and The Tease from Marc Jacobs are beautiful lavender shades that can work with any eye colour.
- Bright and Bold lips are always in fashion, and especially popular in Spring. Colours like Fiore by Stila are the perfect compliment to some of the brighter hues like Guava and Aruba in our Diane Kennedy Spring tunics .
Whether you are someone who changes your makeup seasonally or just want to add a splash of the Spring 2015 beauty trends into your makeup routine, these are fashions that are easy incorporate into your existing look.
