Each new season brings with it fresh new beauty trends, that have made their debut appearance on runways across the world. This spring is no exception, and we have brought together three of the most exciting beauty trends for this season, giving you a whole new dose of makeup inspiration.
When it comes to cat eyes, there are two directions that you can take; subtle or bold. For a subtle look, which is great for the daytime and even to wear to work, use a liquid or pen eyeliner to draw a line over the top of your eyelid near to your lashes, flicking the line upwards at the corner. Bold cat eyes are also huge this spring, and the graphic look is easy to achieve with the right eyeliner. The method is the same, except that the line you draw needs to be much thicker, and rather than a delicate outward flick, you can go heavy with your line, creating a graphic shape around the outside of your eye. You can also buy thick graphic eyeliners, meaning that you only need to draw the line once rather than multiple times with a standard eyeliner. For those of you with shaky hands, try using a teaspoon as a guide, holding it against your eye and drawing your lines around it.
Pops of Color
Bursts of color around your eyes are a refreshing change from heavy black lids, and are perfect for spring. There are some gorgeous new eyeshadow shades available in yellows and magenta, or you could also use a wet brush to create a colored eyeliner. For a flattering shade that works with every skin tone, try lavender. Blend this over your eyes with a mauve shade for an extra special look. Be sure to keep the rest of your makeup light and minimal, as you want the purple tones to look fresh and cool rather than heavy and overdone.
The Natural Glowing Look
This look has been seen on countless catwalks, and is a step up from the classic natural look. Instead of just focussing on a flawless complexion, the aim of this look is to make it seem as though your skin is luminescent and glowing from within. Keep your skin well moisturised and opt for a light coating of foundation, avoiding multiple layers. Use a highlighter to contour your cheekbones, also applying it around your eyes, to really make them seem bright. Keep your lips nude, either with a nude colored lipstick or a sheer lip gloss. A gold lipstick also works extremely well with this look, as it adds a rich shimmer to your lips whilst keeping them looking natural. To keep your eye makeup subtle, choose eyeshadow colors in shades of bronze, or even better, one with flecks of gold, which will really bring a luxurious sparkle to your face.
It is always fun to experiment with new makeup trends, adjusting certain elements so that they suit your own facial features and skin tone. The most important things to remember are to keep your foundation light, make the most of highlighting and contouring your features, and add bursts of bright color around your eyes, keeping your look fresh and minimalistic.
