5 Makeup Trends You Need To Try This Spring Season
Spring is almost here, and what better way to prepare for the season than by trying out the hottest makeup trends of the year? Whether you’re looking for a fresh take on your daily look or want to try something new, these five makeup trends will have you appearing effortlessly chic and on-trend this spring season.
This post will share our top picks for the best makeup trends. From dewy skin to color analysis matching, there’s something for everyone. So, grab your makeup brushes, and let’s get started!
To find out which lip colors suit you best, analyze your skin’s undertones to determine if it’s warm or cool. Then pick a lip color that harmonizes with your skin tone. Generally, warm undertones should go for muted oranges and nudes, while cooler undertones should opt for pink and berry shades.
Once you’ve determined the best color for your skin tones, choose your desired formula and application technique. Lipstick formulas come in liquid, cream, matte, and gloss. Matte lipsticks create a more natural-looking effect, while glossy formulas create a shimmery appearance. And if you opt for liquid formulas, apply the product with a lip brush (usually in a packet of standard makeup brushes) for an even finish.
Use a liquid or cream highlighter on traditional areas such as your cheekbones, forehead, nose bridge, chin, and cupid’s bow. Also, explore elsewhere on your body by placing it on the highlight of your collarbone and shoulders.
K-Pop-inspired looks are all about creating soft yet vibrant makeup that focuses on glowy skin and pops of color around the eyes and lips. Also called “dewy skin” makeup, many K-Pop stars use this method, and you can quickly achieve it at home with just a few products!
A quick method is to get a good Korean BB cream base to pat onto a primed face. Or you can DIY this by putting on a clear primer, then mixing a clear sunscreen and a little of your favorite liquid concealer. Dab it on a brush and gently apply it to your face—Dab extra concealer under your eyes or on problem areas. Then add a neutral peach or burnt red to the ends of your eyelids with a flared brush.
When applying eyeliner, make the line thin from the half of your eyelid and flare it out toward the end, following your natural eyelashes. Then go in with a shimmer eyeshadow and dab it on your eyelid; add a highlighter to the top, the inner corners of your eyes, and the bottoms under your lower lashes.
To finish the look, apply a creme matt dark red shade to your inner lips. Then with a lighter shade of pink, use the lip color to the outer portions of your lips and blend with your fingers to create a gradient. Finally, apply a gloss to your lips.
When going for a K Pop inspired look, it is essential to use lighter shades of eyeshadow while emphasizing highlighting your skin with highlighters and contouring products. To keep the eye fresh, use setting spray and blotting sheets throughout the day to maintain a dewy finish.
To make sure your eyes stand out even more, consider getting lash extensions or trying waterproof mascara to achieve longer, fuller lashes! You can also use natural-looking fake lashes for a fuller effect if desired. If you plan to get lash extensions, it is recommended that you visit a professional salon as well as any lash perm or treatments.
Your brows are the perfect way to frame your face, so why not make them stand out? To do this, try microblading to fill in any sparse spots, try treatments like brow laminating, or use a brow gel for added thickness and definition. You can also use a brow pencil or powder to fill any gaps.
Makeup trends come and go, but these five trends will ensure you look and feel your best while embracing new looks. So, grab your makeup kit and experiment with your look this spring. You can rock them with style and confidence with the right colors, products, and techniques.
