Must-Try Spring Beauty Trends Perfect for Festival Season
Posted on April 17 2019
Spring is the best of the four seasons! Don't get me wrong: summer tans are great, I love a PSL moment in fall, and I'm very into cute coats come wintertime. But, spring is everything! Floral dresses, lots of outdoor weddings, and best of all, music festivals! I count down the days until I can bust out my bright nail polishes, bold lip colors, and colorful, fun liners at Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza, just to name a few. I've rounded up some of my most favorite, never-fail spring makeup trends that seem to always come back in style year after year! These are sure to make you look Instagram-worthy at any festival you attend. Trust me.
A Pink-Toned Lip with a Berry Liner
This is a great option for anyone a little scared to play with a bold color on the lips! I love it because it add dimension to the lips, makes them look extra full, and you can even wear this look during the day because it's not too extra. I start by applying a plum, purple-y liner all around my lips, and smudge inward so it's beautiful and blended! Then, top it with your favorite pinky-nude creamy lipstick! The trick is to make sure your lipstick is a few shades lighter than your liner-that's how you'll get the effect you want! Then, voila! Bold lips for spring!
Statement Shadows on the Lower Lash Line
Let's be honest: a shimmery indigo smokey eye might not be the most realistic look for the working woman to pull off every day of spring. But, you can get the same colorful spring vibes by using your favorite, bright colored shadows on the lower lash line and smoking it out! Neon greens, sapphire blue, or even a warm brick red will look amazing. I like to press the shadow closely under the lashes, then blend out with a fluffier brush. Add mascara and some Lotus Lashes and you've got a fall eye look in a pinch!
Highlight to the Heavens
Nothing pairs better with all the fun, quirky makeup colors of spring than a gorgeous, dewy base! Matte looks can have their moment in fall and winter, but in the spring, I am all about that glow. I like setting my base with a blurring powder, and using bronzers and contour powders with a hint of shimmer. Then, I use a fan brush to sweep highlighter across the tops of my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, and across the cupid's bow. If I'm feeling myself and want even more highlight, I like to hit my chin and the inner corners of my eyes to make them pop. You'll go from dull to dewy in just minutes!
