We’re Feeling Spring’s New Makeup Looks

Spring makeup looks 2017

Our eyes are on three of the season’s boldest beauty trends.

Beauty had many moods on the spring runways, from blush-gone-wild to the glitter lip (yes, glitter is still going strong). The focus was also on the eyes in a big way, with a rainbow of head-turning hues and edgy techniques to make peepers pop. Here are three of the most eye-catching beauty trends this season and what you’ll need to wear them.

The Trend

Smudgy Liner

The new take on the smoky eye, the smudgy liner trend is also known as the “after-party eye” for its lived-in look. But as we all know, the key to looking like you made no effort is always a little effort. Use a highly pigmented black eyeliner and smudge it with a clear lip balm or cream for a sheer effect, or blend in a creamy eyeshadow for a similar finish. Round things off with a nude lip and a light foundation or BB cream and you’re ready for the (new) smoke show.

The Trend

Pink Champagne Eyes

Your outlook will be rosy this spring with this soft but striking look, achieved with a blend of rose and pink shadows. Apply as much as you like—this trend works light and lovely or big and bold––and be sure to balance things out with a corresponding pink shade on the lips. Well-moisturized skin with a dewy finish is the perfect canvas for this colour.

Colour Pairings

The ’80s are back, and the proof is in the pigment with the latest colour combinations we’re seeing on eyes, nails and lips. Paint two or three bright pastel shadows in sections on the eyelids and around the lower lash line and you’re ready to rock this throwback. This look sits nicely on a matte foundation finish.
