You should have fun with your makeup, because there are so many new things to try. You should feel empowered to play with color and go all out with your skin’s glow—just because you can. From colorful mascara to monochromatic makeup, here are some makeup trends to get you in a cool state of mind.
Rainbow eyeshadow: Put the neutral palette you’ve been using for all of eternity down. This season calls for color, and subtlety is overrated. Rainbow-dusted eyes are truly picturesque. Why pick one color when all can collectively look cohesive and cool? The final result looks more complicated than the process actually is. Simply place the shades of your choosing in concentrated areas on your eye, then take a fluffy brush to blend.
Bold eyeliner: Jet-black and brown eyeliners are classic colors, so most women stick to the same liner because it goes with the rest of the makeup and is easy. Allow all the vibrant colors from freshly bloomed spring flowers to inspire you to go bold with your liner. Retro blue, vibrant violet, or a bright fuschia will add an element of surprise and make your eyes pop. And, you don’t have to worry about a lip color because your liner steals all the attention.
Monochromatic Makeup: Maintaining a makeup theme is a thing now. Rather than figure out which shades will complement on another, simply stick with one or two tones that are similar to save yourself from having to piece together that puzzle. Go for peachy pastels that feel like spring, and work that color into your eyes, cheeks, and lips.
That I just-left-my-facialist skin: A skin-first, makeup-second approach is a look you should 100-percent rock. Reach for a lightweight foundation powder for a bit of coverage if you want, but focus on letting your skin’s radiance shine through. You can add a drop of face oil to your foundation to amp up your skin’s natural glow.
Glossy Makeup: Glossy makeup will literally make your skin glisten like no other. It’s possible to wear high-shine makeup without it feeling sticky. There are many thoughtful formulas for products that makes the trend easily wearable for an extended period of time.
Pretty in pink: Paint your face in a sea of pink as it’s clearly the it-color right now. Embrace this feminine shade in the various makeup products you use from blush to eyeshadow. Deep rosey hues look stunning on dark skin tones and pastel pinks complement fair complexions the best.
