Spring is finally around the corner, and with it are some hot new trends. Often it is confusing to decode what’s hot for the coming season, but this quick and easy guide will help keep you looking your loveliest.
Face: Tinted moisturizer is a product that people often associate with summertime looks. But these days, it’s enjoying some much-earned buzz as a great feather-weight foundation alternative. Try it if you’d like a sheer, light coverage for a natural look which says “fresher than springtime” no matter what your age. Added bonus: Moisturizing properties of tinted moisturizer will really help heal those post-winter dry skin blahs!
Eyes: A sweet shimmer is all the rage. Silvery gunmetal greys, as well as classic springtime pastels, such as peachy pinks and pale lavenders, can really make eyes “pop.” Metallics are stunning for daytime as well as night. Go for bright colors or bold sparkles for an edgier nighttime look, but during the day or for more casual occasions, remember to keep the drama subtle with just a hint of metallic sheen.
Lips: Natural is the name of the game here, but matte lipstick may be a bit too severe for the fresh, youthful look that’s so fashionable this season. Try a tinted balm or a sheer lipstick that lets the natural beauty of your lips shine through. Focus on corals and light rosey shades to lend a natural, youthful bloom to the face. Avoid sparkly, glittery glosses which will compete with the subtle drama of the eyes and give faces a somewhat outdated look.
Nails: As surprising as it is to see so many women still clinging to the worn-out trend of dark nails, spring fashions dictate that it is now time to evolve past this trend. By all means, keep it neutral and easy, but lighten and brighten your fingertips with some fresher, hipper colors this spring. Just as with the eyes, a subtle metallic shade will lend a stylish and elegant finish to your overall look. Warm-neutral earth tones and pearly shades, especially those with a light glamorous shimmer, will complement just about any outfit.
Hair: Models of the springtime runways are still sporting big, luxurious hair. Pomps, bouffants, and “hair bumps” have enjoyed some popularity in recent times, and are continuing to blossom all over the scene. If you’re just not a “volume” girl, try a more natural alternative like a classic bedhead style. Tousled waves aren’t just for casual days anymore; these lend a fun, sassy edge to any outfit. Low-maintenance fashionistas will be pleased to hear that streamlined looks are also fashionable this season. Try rocking a sleek bun, braid or ponytail this season; they’re all easy to wear, and so stylish right now!
Fresh and natural style, with just a tiny hint of glamour, is definitely hot this season. However, a little will go a very long way. It’s always fun to experiment with new looks, but most important fashion rule is to do what makes you feel the most comfortable and beautiful, regardless of what style you choose. Fortunately, the popular looks this spring can make any woman’s inner beauty shine right to the surface!
