Here, how to wear 12 of the season's biggest beauty trends.
Don't: Assume one shade fits all. Safety-cone orange is best left to 18-year-old runway models.
Do: Try a rich tangerine (so more red, less yellow) shade like Guerlian Rouge D de Guerlain Jewel Lipsitck Compact in Gipsy ($46; Click to purchase).
Don't: Spread glitter-infused blush on your cheeks.
Do: Sport shimmer on your nails. We like Sephora by OPI Only Gold for Me Top Coat ($10; Click to purchase).
Don't: Skip a lid-to-brow Easter Egg hue.
Do: Swipe on a pale pastel (non-shimmer) eyeshadow along your lashline to bring out your eye color. We like NARS Eyeshadow in Gorgeous ($23; Click to purchase).
Don't: Go out literally bare-faced!
Do: Try a lightweight tinted moisturizer in place of heavy foundation. We like Bobbi Brown Extra SPF25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm ($50; Click to purchase).
Don't: Swipe on aging, 80's-inspired neon eyeshadow.
Do: Road-test bright colored mascara. We like Buxom Lash Special Effects Mascara in Blue Noir ($18; Click to purchase).
Don't: Sweep on an opaque (apt-to-streak) powder blush.
Do: Try a sheerer gel-based blush for a more natural look. We like Tarte Cheek Stain in Flush ($30; Click to purchase).
Don't: Spritz on crunchy-hair-inducing gel.
Do: Work salt-water-infused wave spray into hair for an "I spend the day at the beach" 'do. We like Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray ($23; Click to purchase)
Don't: Don a Heidi-inspired braid that circles your scalp.
Do: Pull hair into a simple, low ponytail braid with a color-matching elastic. We like Sephora Snag-Free Hair Elastics ($4; Click to purchase).
Don't: Spray on something your mother would've worn.
Do: Test a more dramatic, unexpected blend of rose. We like Givenchy Very Irresistible L'Intense Parfum ($57; Click to purchase) which mixes in musk and patchouli notes.
Don't: Layer on a dark brow powder to feign fuller brows.
Do: Try a new lightweight (and smudge-proof) brow marker to give the appearance of thicker brows—naturally. We like Touchback Browmarker ($20; Click to purchase).
Don't: Forget to moisturize lips to prep for a bold shade.
Do: Select a bright lipstick infused with moisturizing ingredients to prevent caking on the go. We like Shiseido Shimmering Rouge ($25; Click to purchase).

Don't: Try a too-dark, obviously fake-baked blend.
Do: Swipe a sheer, sunny shade. We like Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Soft Bronzer ($30; Click to purchase).
