Wearing makeup is one of the easiest, exciting ways to express inner creativity. Whether you prefer to emphasize the eyes or a bold lip look, makeup techniques can be incredibly diverse and easily customized depending on your mood or the occasion. This spring, try mixing things up a bit with one of these two new trends.
Beautiful, Bright Eyes
The purpose of wearing eye makeup is to accentuate the beautiful color of the iris and to make eyes appear larger. One spring eye makeup trend that'll make peepers pop is vibrant colored eye shadow. While fall entails a more sultry, smoldering smoky eye look, spring time makeup should reflect a fresh, bold appearance. Bight colors like teal, orange, lime, hot pink and amethyst shades will certainly hook onlookers and emphasize any eye color. If sporting a full lid of in-your-face color seems intimidating, simply line the eyes in one of the bold shades with a flat, angled eye liner brush. Avoid wearing lipstick, as that will promote a clownish appearance. Instead, wear a nude lip or sheer lip balm.
Prominent, Pastel-colored Lips
For the risk takers seeking another new spring look, bold colored lips is worth a try. A popular upcoming spring trend is pastel colored lips. With a plethora of blooming flowers accompanying the spring weather, pastel lip shades are certainly compatible with the natural scenery. Red lips made a statement last year, but 2013 is definitely the year of pastel shades like lilac, periwinkle, marigold, teal and violet. Wear minimal eye makeup to ensure the lips are the main focus, undoubtedly demanding a double-take. For the ideal fashion-forward look, pair the stunning pastel lipstick with only mascara on the eyes and rose-tinged cheeks.
With two striking looks growing in popularity this spring, choosing may be difficult. As long as the eyes or the lips are highlighted in bright hues, there's no denying how captivated others will be.
