Spring is the season of new beginings. Its a time when fresh buds bloom, animals awaken and the earth awakens from its slumber. Its also the perfect time to pack up your neutral and dark coloured makeup and winter wear and make the transition to the lighter, brighter and happier shades of the season!

These next few months is the perfect time to press restart and try on new looks and styles. You should feel empowered to play with colour and go all out with your skin’s glow this spring. From colorful mascara to ultra-bronzed skin, here are nine makeup trends to get you ready for the season.

Rainbow Eyeshadow

Spring calls for colour and what can be more colourful that rainbow-dusted eyes? While the final result can look complicated, it really isnt. Simply daub on your prefered shades in concentrated areas on your eyelid, then take a fluffy brush and blend. Viola!

Bold Eyeliner

While black and brown eyeliners are classic favourites, this Spring, step out of your comfort zone and embrace the vibrant colours of blossoming spring flowers and go bold with your liner. Retro blue, vibrant violet, Cool Turquoise or a bright fuschia will add an element of surprise and make your eyes pop. And, you don’t have to worry about wearing any lip colour either because your liner will steal all the attention.

Monochromatic Makeup

Maintaining a makeup theme is a thing – really! But rather than going through the hassle of figuring out which shades complement each other, simply stick with one or two similar tones. Go for peachy pastels that feel like spring, and work the colour into your eyes, cheeks, and lips.

Glowing Skin

Everyone wants glowing, healthy looking skin. But thats often easier said than done – unless you won the genetic lottery. If your skin is as dull as ours, simply reach for a very lightweight foundation powder or bronzer for a bit of coverage, but remember that the focus is on letting your skin’s natural radiance shine through. If your skin still looks more ashy than glowy, you can add a drop of face oil to your foundation to amp up your skin’s natural glow.

Colourful Mascara

Everyone can pull off coloured mascara, so don’t be shy, grab a tube of your favourite hue and let lose! Although, colourful mascara can make it look like you tried with your makeup, it’s really a lazy girl move because you now don’t have to worry about enhancing any other area of your face.
