Look, we’re not going to sugarcoat it: it’s been a long, weird year. And Spring blowing in like a pure fresh breeze is setting our creativity on fire! There’s no better time than now to embrace the fun, glamour and magic of beauty and try out some of the hottest new makeup looks. Red lips for day? Absolutely! Metal eyeshadow? Sign us up. Here are the top trends to try right now, IRL to get your Spring on.
Look no further than the master of minimalism, Giorgio Armani, and his spring runway show to understand the soft-sexy balance of this flattering-to-all makeup look. It’s a spinoff of the neutral ‘90s aesthetic that's been so popular this past year, but amped up thanks to ombre tones and strong coordinated blush. The color palette is rooted in caramels, browns, taupes and tawnys, but boosted with a dewy, glowy finish. Get the look with go-to face makeup like Instant Eraser and Banana Powder.
Red lips took a giant leap forward for Spring. The everyday matte red lip looks incredibly modern and can be much more wearable in blotted matte form. For the perfect color/texture combo look no further than this lipstick. It’s instant Spring cool and works on all kinds of skin tones.
Hot and cool. That's the pink lip for Spring. Strong blue-based pinks like this crisp magenta shade are all the rage right now, a more playful alternative to red (although--see above. They’re back too.) Especially paired with super-clean, glowing, natural skin. The combination looks amazing.
Think ink. Inky black, bold brown, saturated shades of grey. Intensely smokey eyes are the look we’re pinning on Spring 2021. Line the top and bottom lash line, extending color out and exaggerating the eye size and shape. Then fill in the entire upper lid with a smoldering, blendable pencil like this one. Best part? Set it and forget it. This blendable eyeliner pencil locks in for hours.
