Beauty & Style
This season’s top makeup trends have started to swept through Spring 2015 runway fashion shows. While each year calls for a minimal makeup look, the most subdued makeup should have a playful aspect to create a little drama. From a dewy, luminous complexion to show off your natural beauty to a statement burnt plum lip- these trends can create the most lively makeup looks without too much effort. Here are some makeup trends you’ll want to wear this Spring.
A crisp, exaggerated graphic eyeliner with bare eyelids is the statement to make for eye makeup trends. Keep the eyes simple by priming the eyelids to neutralize any darkness- this way your liner stands out and stays put all day. To achieve that perfect flick, a pen-style liquid liner will easily help you create a seamless line. Choose a liner shape that you’re comfortable with, go bold with a winged liner or create a simple cat flick. Always finish the eye look off with a few coats of mascara to define your eyelashes.
Burnt Plum Lipstick
A rich romantic shade for Spring 2015 makeup trends, the burnt plum is a mix of red and purple to create a wearable elegant statement lip. This lip hue is gorgeous paired with subtle glowy cheeks and a neutral brown eyeshadow on the lids. The lips should look rich and saturated with color, the best lip product to use should have a semi-matte finish for a trendy effect, try Mac’s Heaux or Rebel lipstick. Always make sure to moisturize and prep the lips before applying a matte lip color.
Create an ethereal glow to your skin by using illuminators and bronzers to highlight and define your features. Going for a very bronzed complexion starts with using a warm-toned bronzer which is 2-3 shades darker than your skin-tone. The warm color of the bronzer will add warmth and definition to your cheeks and facial features. For that angelic glow, apply a dab of liquid illuminator on the highest part of your cheekbones.
It’s all about going natural with your skin. The best investment you can make this season is with your skincare. Keep your skin hydrated and moisturized throughout the day for a dewy look. Making sure that your skin doesn’t look heavily oily, apply a makeup primer to keep any excess oil at bay. A BB cream is your best friend for a natural yet lightweight coverage makeup look, you can always pat a matt powder on your t-zone to knock off any oil that may come through.
