Spring Trends 2016

The team at Beautifinda asked me to share the current spring trends with their readers. You can head over and see the article on their site here, or read below.

The “no makeup” makeup trend seems to be over. It’s all about bold lips and eye looks that pack a punch.

Candy apple red lips are one of the hot looks for the season from high glossy lip to a beautiful sheer stain. My picks to achieve this look is Mac’s ruby woo for a matte finish or face of Australia divine shine lip lacquer in cosmic rush.

Bright pops of electric blue are gracing catwalks everywhere at the moment. You don’t have to don circa 80’s blue eye shadow to achieve this trend. Think bold eyeliner or coloured mascara. Try Too Faced sketch marker in steep blue.

Say goodbye to matte heavily contoured skin. Non-touring is all the rage for spring. Think soft glowing skin, try mixing a liquid bronzer with a brown cream for a natural tan gleam, like Nars liquid laguna bronzer.

Pops of peach and pinks are so hot for spring and so easy to achieve. If you don’t own a peach eye shadow try using a blush on the lids to achieve this look. Loreal’s blush sculpt trio in 102 nude is perfect for adding peach tones to the eye and the cheeks this spring.

Hair this season seems to be all about keeping your hair up off the face. Big messy buns are so hot right now and I couldn’t be happier. For a more elegant look try a sleek modern ponytail or a beautiful braid.

This spring has seen the revival of nail art. Intricate works of art are finding there way onto nails everywhere, either as a feature nail or the full set.

I think the take away message from the seasons hot looks is fun. Makeup is about expressing yourself. Don’t take it to seriously, have fun with it.
