Spring beauty looks are pushing the envelope with exciting color and creativity. Best of all, you don’t need to be a makeup artist to master them—these looks are more about being unique rather than looking “perfect”. Use these trends as cues for a more subtle look, or rock them like you’re on the runway!

  1. Spring Makeup Look #1: Exaggerated White Eyeliner

    A refreshingly imperfect swipe of white eyeliner extended across the top lash line is a cool twist on the classic cat-eye. It’s fun, eye-catching, and not too out-there for anyone to experiment with.

  2. Spring Makeup Look #2: Ultra Colorful Eyeshadow Looks

    The dazzling ombré eye seen at the Rebecca Minkoff show is perfect for trying out in all your diy beauty tutorials. You can choose whichever combo of colors you want, and swipe one in the inner corners of eyes, one across your lids and the other along your lower lash line. 

    Tip: For a high-impact look, try spraying your makeup brush with water before dipping it into the shadow—color will go on saturated and extra vibrant!


  3. Spring Makeup Look #3: Floating Eyeliner

    Time to get experimental with your liquid eyeliner by drawing on dramatic wings, swoops and scrawls. This look has edge, and it doesn’t require a precise hand and is easily achievable with a smudge-proof eyeliner, preferably a liquid eyeliner.

  4. Spring Makeup Look #4: Orchid Purple Eyeshadow

    Petal-fresh purple eyeshadow is the new hot color taking over the beauty world. It’s especially eye-catching when worn over the full lid like the models at the Alice + Olivia show—very pretty for the spring season.

  5. Spring Makeup Look #5: Red Lip & Natural-Looking Skin

    A red lip is timelessly chic, but this season it’s all about eschewing the usual perfect, matte complexion for skin that’s dewy, glowing and as bare as possible. As seen on the Jason Wu runway, the contrast between the two is beautiful and fresh.

  6. Spring Makeup Look #6: Hot Pink Lipstick

    One look at the runway and you’ll see: Bold color is so right now. ‘80s inspired but eternally cool, we’ll see slashes of electric pink on lips as soon as the weather warms.

  7. Spring Makeup Look #7: Makeup and Skincare Hybrids

    Fresh, dewy skin was everywhere at shows like Naeem Khan. Achieving this in real life comes down to using makeup that acts like skincare. Foundations and bb creams infused with ingredients like SPF, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and salicylic acid keep skin bouncy and fresh all day long.

  8. Spring Makeup Look #8: Shimmer Eyeshadow

    Alice + Olivia created a melting-shimmer eyeshadow look on models that is as dramatic as it is ultra- pretty. Stick to a palette of muted, moody shades—dark blue, purple—to keep it fresh.

    Tip: This kind of shimmer eye makeup looks best paired with smudgy black eyeliner along the top and bottom lashline.

  9. Spring Makeup Look #9: Eyebrow Feathering

    Strong brows have been trending for years, but the brows this season are lighter in feel from years past, yet not less full. This look is about grooming—define them with feather-light brush strokes of a brow pencil. Brush hairs up and out with a brow mascara to keep them uniform and smooth.
