With the beginning of spring fast approaching, you're likely beginning to tire of the muted green and browns in your makeup that characterize the fall and winter seasons. Makeup is such a fun and easy way to get ready for spring and update your everyday look. Try these fun and simple tips to make your makeup bolder and bigger for spring.
An amazing, arresting trend for spring is the bottom liner. Instead of a bold, black line of the top lid, do one on the bottom instead. Use black pencil liner to create a soft, thick line on your bottom lid. Make sure the line has a blurred edge. At the corner of the eye, softly pull the liner up into the top lid and incorporate a much thinner line on the top lid. This dramatic look can be paired with a matte face and simple, nude lips to achieve the desired bold effect.
Nothing says bold and beautiful like the classic and sexy red lip. It's such a bold look that little other makeup is necessary, making this the perfect choice for a low-maintenance day, while still looking absolutely captivating. All you need is a soft blush, a liner with an orange tinge, and a creamy red lipstick. Make sure you match skin tone to the red you use; girls with peach undertones look best with lighter reds, while those with olive skin should opt for a berry-red lip color. The palest girls can carry a true, fresh red flawlessly. You can never go wrong with this look!
Take a tip from the great Katy Perry, and slather on some bright colors like light blues, pinks, purples, even greens. The best way to pull this look off is to choose shades that match your skin's undertones, as always. Olive-skinned girls or girls with uneven skin tones should opt for creamy shadow with a shimmer, and pair it with some soft golds to blend with. Those with paler skin can run a bit wild with brighter tones, and use matte shades instead. These shades should be thicker than their shimmery counterparts, and be applied with soft, tapered brushes. Also, when choosing a purple shade, for example, stay away from shades with too much red in them, as it tends to look too heavy. Similarly, blues with too much yellow in them tends to make girls look sallow, instead of bright and fresh.
Depending on whether this is a night look or a day, apply liner accordingly. For evening, opt for a thicker line and dramatically curled lashes. For day, stick to the color only, or perhaps a brushing of some brown powder liner along your top lid.
For night, this is the best look for a truly bold eye. Try thick, shimmery metallics in gold or bronze that go on even and last all night. Shade in a darker color at the outer lid and work your way inward with a lighter shade. With liquid or cream liner, do a winged eye to look like a true Egyptian goddess!
