That's Bold of You
Even though spring normally starts months after the new year, there's something about the warming weather and blooming flowers that makes it feel like the real fresh start to the new year. It's no wonder that spring cleaning is a thing. You put away all the heavy, dark winter clothes and prep for longer days and nicer weather. And along with cleaning and hotter temperatures, spring is the moment to try new things, including new makeup looks.
It's common to opt for more natural and dewy looks during the spring but this year, color is going to be front and center. While a good no makeup makeup look is a classic, it's always fun to switch it up and go with something more vibrant. But going with a bold makeup look can feel daunting if you don't know how to go about it. It's all good though because below we're going to show you tons of inspo to help you pull off this season's trending colors!
Taking a note from nature, spring is a time to experiment with colors of all kinds but the top 6 must-try colors that we guarantee you'll be seeing everywhere are yellow, orange, red, lavender, lime green, and hot pink. So let's take a closer look at each one.
Every shade of yellow is going to be having a moment this spring but pale and canary yellows will see the most action. For a long time yellow has been a last reach for makeup lovers everywhere because they believed it couldn't be pulled off. But luckily those days are behind us and now we're all aware of just how fun and refreshing yellows can be. You can go for a dramatic eyeliner, a softer eyeshadow look, or really change it up with yellow lipstick. The choices are endless really.
Red makeup has been around for almost as long as makeup has been a thing but usually has remained on your lips. You can always stick with the classic style or if you want to try something new, then a heavy red blush look might be right up your alley. Another option is a statement eye shadow. Pro tip: eye shadow extending way past your eyes is completely in this season and honestly we can see why. It looks awesome.
Did you say pretty in pink? A pretty big departure from the popular millennium pink, this is that shade's bolder, louder sister! You can soften bold pink eye makeup with a classic red lip or go all out punk with a black lip. Why not? And if you're feeling really adventurous, how about a hot pink blush look? You'll be channeling your inner Rihanna circa MET Gala 2017 which pretty much means you can't go wrong.
For those lovely people who prefer a softer color, lavender is here to save the day. The almost pastel color can really make your eyes pop while still looking pretty tame. Apply it to the inner corners of your eyes or have fun with glitter to really look bright eyed and bushy tailed. Alternatively, you can go with a fun lavender lip for a candy pop look.
This spring, looking green can be a good thing! Lime green is another color that has often been passed on because it can be very in your face. But you can play that to your advantage because that means that just a little can go a long way. This could be the perfect color when you want to put in little effort but get maximum payoff. You can go as simple as lime green mascara or a quick swipe of shadow on your eyes and it'll be a whole lewk without breaking a sweat.
Hello orange! Oranges tend to be associated with the cozier fall season but it's time to break tradition. A soft shade of orange eye makeup will be perfect for someone looking for a little change. If you want to step it up, a bright, almost neon orange and eyeliner combo might call to you. And if you want to turn all the heads, can you say bold orange blush?
We know these vibrant colors might have seemed a bit scary to think about trying but now you know there are plenty of ways that you can incorporate them into your makeup. With some confidence and a little creativity, you can pull off any of these colors perfectly. Before you know it, you'll be looking for all the colors of the rainbow to add to your makeup collection!
