Spring Beauty Trends

by

During the recent spring 2015 runway collections, beauty trends featured refreshing looks with flashes of color and the au naturale. The free spirit was definitely present and an inspiration in many of these looks from modern-day hippie with romantic vibes to biker chick with an edge. It is all about experimenting with your inner self this spring and stepping into a style you never have tried before. Add a touch of color to your eyes. Stand out with plum-tinted lips. Kick up your wing liner with the perfect line. Show us that natural beauty you have with only hints of blush or polish. Less is more and spring is a sure signifier of that through all of its natural beauty, just like you. Are you ready for this gorgeous season? I know I am! Try something a bit different with these stunning beauty trends that are all about flaunting what you already have.

Sugar Plum
We’re stepping outside of the classic box this season with an introduction to the plum shade—one that will definitely become your classic in spring. This attractive shade can easily be built up or down. Plum this season was even featured on the eyes by smudging lip products softly across the lids as eyeshadows. Who would’ve thought?! The shade is a soft, yet bold color that will last perfectly throughout the day without taking up too much attention.

That Red Lip
Of course the red lip isn’t going anywhere this season, but its array of shades has definitely widened our beauty horizons. With orange undertones, the red lip has toned it down a notch into a color that can be worn all day and night. Talk about an easy transition! For that classic red lip that we love on Taylor Swift, line your lips first before filling them in with your favorite shade of red. Everything will be built into that perfect red statement that is bold everywhere you go.

Textured Touch
Put those hot hair tools away during this spring season and rock what your momma gave you! Let your natural hair go with the wind—literally. Say no more to curling and straightening, at least for this season. Apply hair products from Redken or Tresemmé that will emphasize the natural texture in your hair. For a quick ‘do without the hassle in the morning, get a head start at night; add your favorite texturizing product, split your hair into two braids, and then let free in the morning. You’ll be left with soft waves that will last even days later!

The Perfect Black Lines
Black liner is a definite go-to for all of us, ladies. Am I right? It’s time to really put our lining skills to the test throughout the spring season—let’s aim for that perfect black line. Now we know there is no such thing as perfect, but with the darkest shade of black eyeliner, it comes close. Try one from the brands Butter London or Shiseido and apply in a thick manner instead of a thin line. You’ll create a dramatic and dark look just right for a night out.

Bare Natural
Show some bare-faced skin and nails in these blooming months. Let your natural self shine through with hints of rose blush and parts of your nails painted. Instead of getting done up fully, use less than usual—a light brush of bronzer, a pat of cream blush, and a hint of highlighter or concealer. You’ll create a fresh-faced look that will not only look good, but feel good as well. It’s all about becoming extremely comfortable in your own skin, gals. What better way to love yourself? For your nails, opt for painting them in half moons with a soft shade or accenting them with a stripe of color. Let the rest of your nail be bare to create a blank space—yes, like the Taylor Swift song. Except literally.
