Seven Spring Beauty Tips for 2017Friday, March 31, 2017
With the chill of winter in the past and the sunny days of spring ahead, you may be thinking about how you can change your look. While updating your wardrobe with floral dresses or pastel pants might be on your "to-do" list, have you thought about changes you can make to your beauty routine? If you're looking to brighten up your makeup, the tips below can help.
1. Highlight Your Face
Nothing says you're ready for the warmth of spring like a gentle glow on your face. You can achieve this look by lightly brushing highlighter on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your upper eyelid.
2. Glitter Your Lips
One of the biggest trends that models rocked on the spring runway was glitter or dark metallic lips. This head-turning style can be achieved by purchasing a lip kit or simply applying microfine glitter over the top of your favorite lipstick or gloss.
3. Embrace Beachy Waves
Tired of straight hair protective styles this winter? Try something new with beachy waves that add some texture to your look. If your hair isn't already naturally curly, try styling with a curling iron before brushing out and finishing with sea salt hair spray.
4. Try Simple Nail Colors
Say goodbye to bold and dark nail colours and hello to those that are beautifully simple. From clear coats with a touch of glitter to iridescent or nude, there are a lot of ways to incorporate simple nails into your spring look.
5. Gloss Your Eyelids
While you might be familiar with glossing your lips, you likely haven't tried glossing your eyelids. With this being a major runway trend, it's something you can feel confident trying this spring. Fortunately you don't need any special beauty products to try the look, as you can simply apply a little bit of clear lip gloss to your eyelid for added shine.
6. Skip Contouring
Contouring the face has been incredibly popular and certainly has its place in any beauty routine. However, this spring "non-touring" is more of a trend. To create this look, skip contouring and instead groom your brows, dress your lashes, and apply light foundation with concealer to cover any imperfections.
7. Care for Your Lips
With bold lips being popular this spring, it's important for them to be healthy and smooth. This is why it's recommended to apply a nourishing product such as EOS lip balm that will help keep your lips primed for any colour you want to rock.
