Spring Make Up

When it comes to beauty looks, bare is always beautiful—but so is a bit of color on the face. Fortunately the spring shows offered us both options this season. Makeup artists swept brilliant shades of blue and green on the eyes at Stella McCartney and Versus, slicked vivid crimson hues on lips at Jason Wu and Burberry, then emphasized neutral lips and glowing skin at shows like Dolce & Gabbana

Red lips:

Red Signals

At first, it seemed like spring would be a season of pale lips. Then red colors hit with a bang, most noticeably at Burberry where models wore a creamy scarlet hue that generated major buzz.

Eyeliner In Full Effect

Ever since the cat-eye trend hit last year, eyeliner has become a newfound essential. It’s a downtown look that went a bit uptown at Chanel where makeup artist Peter Philips created striking contrast with his jet black liner by swiping on a platinum shadow over the lids, giving us inspiration for how to dress up a few simple strokes for day to night.

Lush Lashes

From the inky, Twiggy-like fringe seen at Gaultier to the curled and combed up look at Gucci, it’s time to have fun with your lashes this season. For the beauty adventurous, look to the chic-clumpy variety at Véronique Leroy, and our favorite, the heavy lashes offset with white liner—and nails to match—at Moschino.

The Bold And Beautiful Brows

Strong brows proved their staying power again.A handy pro tip: brush brow hairs down to find your natural shape, then fill in sparse areas with a pencil, using short, feathery strokes to shape and even out the contours of your brows.

Seeing Blue And Green

A Mediterranean influence swept the shows, as makeup artists dabbed their eye makeup brushes in shades of turquoise, jade and vibrant aqua.And for those moments of all-out glamour, place a few sparkles around your eyes like this Dior model if you dare.

Skin All Aglow

Fresh, natural skin provided the perfect backdrop for the season’s best looks.Good skincare goes a long way, too. Try a light-reflecting primer worn underneath makeup and a highlighter dabbed on the high points of your face.

Now you have the whole set of make up tips to be ready for the spring season!
