Spring Makeup Trend + My 5 Favorite Lipsticks for Spring!


Hello Lovelies! How are you all doing today? This post is going to be all about a fun spring makeup trend =) Spring this year is all about color or should I say POP of color! whether in clothes, accessories, or makeup! I love adding a pop of color to just about everything because it makes things way more fun! Do you agree? For the bold, try color-blocking which basically is color on color & looks stunning! You can go all out and color-block your outfit or incorporate a color-blocked accessory into your look. Anyways, got a little bit off topic - this post is about the pop of color! So getting back on track... adding a bright splash of color to your makeup can make all the difference. Whenever I used to think of a pop of color, my mind would instantly go to the eyes and using a fun eyeliner or eye-shadow but never to the lips, until now! I never considered myself a bright lipstick wearer and would always stick to baby pinks & nudes but recently I have been swiping on a fun color on my lips & calling it a day! I love  the fact that it's such a simple look to achieve, takes no time at all,  & looks fun, youthful, & playful!


The lips are taking center stage! (for once, right?) & we want all the attention to be on them! I think it's best to leave the eyes/face extremely simple & almost bare looking, as if your not wearing any makeup at all (awesome, right? no more spending 30 minutes doing your eye makeup in the morning!) I think applying a champagne toned eye-shadow all over the eyelid, using a light brown shade to naturally define the crease, smudging brown eyeliner on the upper lash-line, & a coat of mascara makes the perfect combination! As for the face I would use a peachy pink blush, and a bronzer to get a gorgeous sun kissed glow =) Watch my tutorial down below to see how I achieve the look & what products I use!


Now on to the main event! The Lips =)
Since it's spring the brighter the color, the better! Since the rest of our look is so simple & plain, any fun lipstick in the world (for the most part) will look perfect! So it's up to you which color you use, for spring/summer 2012 I think orange, & neon pink are perfect!
