Feeling a little lost now that the sun is out? Not sure what your beauty routine should entail? We’ve got you covered.
We’ve been keeping tabs on what makeup is walking down the runway and the red carpet, and we’re here to bring you our findings. Without further ado, here are 10 spring makeup trends for 2014.
Orange is totally in right now. And the best part is, it works with all skin tones! Stick with a glossy or creamy shade, and keep the rest of your makeup uncomplicated. The bright orange lips are big enough of a statement!
Try out MAC Lipstick in Morange from Macy’s for $16.
When is the cat eye ever not in style? Keep the rest of your face simple when using this look, as you really want your eyes to stand out. It’s hard to get it right, but when you do, you’ll look fabulous.
Try a high quality cream or gel eyeliner to get that dramatic effect. Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Eyeliner is available from BuyMeBeauty.com for $4.99.
Pastels are out, and the flashy fun of metallics are in. Whether it’s shiny, shimmery, or straight up chrome, all these vibrant shades will help you feel in style. Keep your nail shape natural for this look.
American Apparel has some nice variations on the metallic theme for only $6.
Being bright and bold is currently at the top of the trend list. What better way to do this than with neon green eyeshadow? You may not be able to pull this look off everyday, so save it for a special occasion.
Check out the Eye Shadow Store for a beautiful green shimmer for only $9.99.
Finally – a trend we can all embrace. The so called “raw beauty” movement focuses on a fresh and clean face to highlight your natural beauty. It’s all about taking care of you skin and keeping your brows trimmed.
You don’t even need to use mascara – just give your natural lashes a bit of a curl. Shu Uemura has an innovative eyelash curler for $24.
If you don’t feel comfortable going au naturel, try using a soft blush to highlight your cheekbones. A light pink or peach gives you some gentle color without being too severe.
Tarte is known for their great makeup. Get an Amazonian Clay blush from them for only $26.
It’s like a French manicure, but more fun. These multi-tonal nails embrace the boldness of the current color trends without going too overboard.
Check out Essie’s pink nail polish selection for $8.50 a bottle.
Get your electric blue on with this bright color! It’s easy to make your eyes pop out brilliantly if you apply it right. Balance out the brightness with a lot of mascara.
MAC is renowned for their quality eyeshadow that’s only $9.95.
That fresh-faced bronzey glow is always a big fashion YES. This season, try adding some bronzing powder to both your cheeks and eyes. You can even give yourself bronzed lips if you’re bold enough.
Try this matte bronzer from Tarte for $32.
If you’re not a fan of bright orange, go with the bright pink. It works better on certain skin tones, but it’s up for you to experiment with. Keep the rest of the face defined, but simple.
Loreal Colour Caresse Lipstick has several shades of bright pink for $7.49.
