Trying the trends is really fun and there’s really no reason not to give this a whirl.
However, there are some tricks to getting things just right.
Once you know what they are, you can look your best all spring long.
You are going to love how you look when you follow these tips.
Get ready to turn some heads everywhere you go.
1. Do Horizontal Stripes on Your Nails
Experts are calling this the trend for grown-ups this spring.
Sure, it’s fun to try the fancy and over the top nail art for days off, but if you want something sophisticated for the office, try horizontal stripes.
Use nail tape to get the lines straight and even and go ahead and use bright, bold colors in any combination.
2. Rock Some Apple Red Lips
Red lipstick has always been a classic choice, but candy apple red is a great choice for spring.
It enhances your other makeup and gives your skin that porcelain look you really crave.
The great thing is that you can totally rock this trend with shiny or matte lipstick, but experts caution that you get it on just right or you risk ruining the effect.
3. Go Ahead and Wear Blue on Your Eyelids
Blue was the iconic eye shadow shade of the 1980s and it’s easy to make fun of how awful it looked.
However, blue is cropping up on runways again this spring, but in a totally updated way.
Try navy on your lids or swipe on some bright turquoise eye liner.
The trick is to go easy and not cover your entire eye in the same bright blue shade.
Doing it right will leave you looking totally sophisticated.
4. Not Ready for Blue? Try Bright Purple or Pink
I have a hard time pulling off blue eye shadow, but I can totally get away with purple.
If you’re not ready for something that bold, try the technicolor trend with purple or pink.
Use the color you choose to create a great smoky eye and you’ll love what you see in the mirror.
Again, the trick is not going to heavy on the color or you’ll look like you’re headed to the 1986 senior prom.
5. Colored Liner is Just as Cool
If you want to ease into the bright color trend, consider using eyeliner instead of eyeshadow.
Makeup companies are creating some pretty darn great shades these days so try purple, emerald green or sky blue.
Pair the liner with a neutral shade of eye shadow to keep yourself from looking too over the top.
6. Bronze is the Thing This Spring
Bronze makeup is having a total moment right now and I think you’re going to love it.
The color is indicative of spring and summer so you’ll always look on point when you wear bronze.
The most popular way to rock the color is to wear it on your eyes.
The slightly metallic tint to the color gives you a great warm weather glow and lets you try something new at the same time.
7. Go with Some Colored Mascara
Are you seeing the spring trend here?
Lots of color.
So why not try colored mascara?
Runways saw anything from blue to purple to green.
Clearly, it’s not something you can get away with at the office, but try it for a night out on the town or your next trip to the mall.
You’ll love it!
