1 Color Me Beautiful

Color Me BeautifulSpring makeup is live and in color this year with primary colors of blue, red, yellow and orange taking center stage. If you’re not trying to achieve Lady Gaga status, try a cobalt blue gel liner on a clean eyelid with a pale pink cheek and red glossy lip. For nighttime, liven up your eyes by adding a sweep of pale yellow shadow to your lid and blend up into the crease.

2 So Fresh and so Clean

So Fresh and so CleanRunways were graced this spring with classically fresh faces. Using a BB cream or sheer foundation blend into skin until even. Place a translucent loose powder on your t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) and over and under eyes to help mascara from smearing. Play up your lashes using an eyelash curler and multiple layers of mascara on top lashes. Leave bottom lashes bare to create a cleaner looking eye. Try out a cream blush in orange or even spring's favorite new color, orchid, and blend into the apples of your cheeks. Add a swipe of tinted lip balm or pink gloss and go!

3 White out

White outWhile smokey eyes are always popular, surprise people and try a stark white shadow on your lids or as an eyeliner. Your eyes will pop with multiple layers of white shadow brushed up and into your eyebrows. Use a jet-black mascara on your top and bottom lashes that will create contrast. Or, line your lids with white eyeliner to create a punk version.

4 Orchid is the New Pink

Be sure to find the right shade for your skin tone and don’t go overboard with the color on every feature of your face. You don’t want to look frozen.

5 Orange You Pretty?

6 Glitter Never Goes Away

Glitter Never Goes AwayIt’s true whether it’s a trend or it’s stuck to your cheek. It’s definitely back this year. Try using glitter on your lids as a way to pop your eye shadow colors. Or, use it alone on a clean eye for a subtle sparkle. Colors trends this spring are: pink, yellow, gold and orange.

7 Berry Lips and Brows

Berry Lips and BrowsBrows are making a big statement this spring. While maintaining a good arch is always important, take a breather from your bi-weekly waxing appointments and let your brows grow. Bushy, colored in brows are in right now. Take a shadow and angle brush closest to your brow color (using a shade lighter is a safe bet to keep you from making your brows too dark and intense) and lightly brush in color. Pair that with a berry lip in cranberry, burgundy or black honey. Keep the rest of your face clean with a little bit of mascara and a hint of pink blush on the apples of your cheeks.
