Five Makeup Trends for Spring

Spring is right around the corner, which means it's time to explore makeup trends for the season. This season, makeup looks are on the minimal side, incorporating a pop of vibrant color while keeping the looks soft and natural. Here are five trends I'm excited to try.


Minimal Contouring
Ditch the structured contour and highlight lines for spring: It's time for a softer, natural look. We're leaving behind the angular contours of the fall and winter and opting for just a little bronzer at the hollows of your cheeks, and even less around your hairline and jawline. Less is more!

Berry Lips
There's nothing more feminine and attractive than a set of hydrated lips with a berry tint. Here's what I recommend: Dab on a sheer berry lipstick sans liner, and using your finger, just dab all around the border of your lips for a softer appearance. My favorite berry color for spring? It's not even a lipstick. It's the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Petal, and it's the perfect rose/berry color for the season.

Gold, in all different shades, is flattering on anybody. Either sweep a sheer layer over your lids and finish off with some mascara for a more natural look or, like I have in the photo, use it to add an accent to a standard cat eye for a little more drama.

Glowing Skin
Minimal makeup and glowing skin are going to be huge this year, so you're going to see a lot of natural skin and less foundation. And who wouldn't be okay with a low maintenance beauty routine for the spring? The key is to keep your skin in great shape, so get yourself into a sold skincare routine to let that beautiful skin shine through!

No Liner
Instead of using eyeliner, focus on a wash of color over the lids, both opaque and sheer, vibrant and neutral. A no-liner look is more ethereal. Achieve the look by sweeping a warm neutral shade across the lids, then line the bottom lash with the same color for a smoky, natural look.
