The onset of the spring season presents the perfect time to step into a new look. By adopting just a few of the latest trends, you can create a whole new style to take you into the spring season. If you are ready to spring into action and update your makeup bag along with your look, read ahead for some springtime trends and top beauty tricks to try this spring.
Start with a Good Base
Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient that has been around for a while in skin care, but it’s making a huge splash in both high-end and drugstore products this season.
This ingredient is a super moisturizer that works well on its own or under other products. Hyaluronic acid plumps fine lines, works well on all skin types and helps give the skin a more youthful, healthy look with or without makeup.
Create a Bolder Bronzed Look
Nothing says spring quite like the look of sun-kissed, glowing skin. While bronzers are routinely used to create this glow, this season offers a host of contour and highlight palettes that do double duty.
To create a modern, updated look, add bronzer to the hollows of the cheek and upper edges of your forehead. Finish off with a light touch of pearlized highlight that hits all the high points of your face.
A Whiter Smile Makes Your Lips Pop
The classic red lip is making a comeback in a big way this spring. Add to that, bold colors like orange and fuchsia are being seen on runways in the newest shows. To make this look really work, you’ll need to pair it with a bright smile. Dr. Gerard Wasselle, a cosmetic dentist in Anchorage AK, suggests that you visit your dentist for a professional whitening if your teeth have started yellowing, or if you’ve got a few pesky stains. Once you get rid of stains or yellowing, you can rock any bright lipstick colors that you want. Be sure to keep up with whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes in between professional whitening treatments in order to keep the stains at bay. After a quick visit to the dentist, you’ll be ready to try any of the popular bright lip tones of the season.
Wear some “Barely There” Waves
The loose hair look is easy to achieve and works with most hair lengths—even this seasons popular “lob.” This technique works best on unwashed hair, making it an easy, go-to style for warmer spring days. Give fine hair some volume with dry shampoo and add several spiral curls around your head with a large-barrel curling iron. This is a perfectly imperfect look that only requires a minimal comb-out with your fingers before heading out the door.
This spring is the perfect time to add a little spark to your look. The newest way to wear metallic is with metallic eyeliner.
Add a thin silver wing to your upper lid for a dramatic, modern cat eye. Or, try this trend in a deep metallic tone on your lower lash line for a slightly more subdued look that works for day or night.
Whether you go big or small, picking a few of these trends to incorporate into your spring routine will amp up your style in a whole new way. So spring into action, and get working on cultivating the perfect spring look!
