Blue Eye Shadow Beauty

It’s high time we discussed the main makeup trends this season. Don’t think anybody wants to be left behind and look pale and unstylish when going out with her man or just partying with her girlfriends. These are the tips you can use when choosing makeup products and putting on makeup this season.

So what’s new we’re having these spring and summer? First of all, forget about pale colors. Spring makeup is all about color: everything is bright and lively.


Green Eye Shadow Beauty

Color shadows

As for eye makeup, spring’s eye shadows have a colorful layering effect, using brights like purple , neon green and blue to pop neutral gold, taupe, grey and bronze shadows. The overall effect is very art school confidential. Looks terrific, you should try it yourself.

Purple Eye Shadow Beauty

Gold is the new taupe

Use it blended lightly at inner corner and under eyes, you don’t even have to use mascara. There are two ways you can use gold shade to produce two different effects: when paired with dark lips it gives a fresh spring face; when used with pale lips , you’ve got warm weather grunge.


Both ways look fresh and cute, but again pay attention to your skin color, sometimes gold can really make you look too pale.

Another trend is layering slightly different shades of one color. Mix dark and smoky plums and violets with pale pastels like lilac and lavender to create a vibrant and beautiful look. Remember eyes must attract attention, so you can focus on them rather than lipstick in this case.

Rihanna Make Up

In case you’re planning a night out use a black, dark blue, or charcoal eyeliner or pencil to add some drama to your eyes. Just filling in the lower and upper inner rim you’ll make your eyes look smoky and sultry.

Pink Lips

When choosing a pink lipstick, use your skin as a guide to avoid makeup mistakes. Those with pink tones should go for a blue-based pink. Yellow tones require a warmer, browner shade. You can choose the one with a sheer, glossy texture if you’re shy or not completely sure about your pick. You can apply two coats of the color to make your lips sparkle pink.

Pink Lips

Lips like candy

The two big lip looks are sweet shades of matte pink and glossy coral . As mentioned above, pink shades might range from bubble gum to blue-pink, and glossy fresh. It’s the opposite for coral lips.

Experts advise to use a lip liner along that matches your lips, not the lipstick. Be sure to use a sheer, creamy liner, they say, adding that a dry, highly pigmented formula will create an “artificial, sharp-looking edge.”

Without much effort you can make your pout shine with a gorgeous coral gloss. You can also wear coral gloss alone for a sheer, fresh faced look.

Kate Beckinsale Make Up

Robyn Cosio, makeup artist at Salon Maxime in Beverly Hills, says,

Nothing should look heavy if you are wearing a coral lip. The look is light and fresh so the rest of your makeup should complement that.”

So using bold lip and eye shadow colors you’d better complement them with pastel blushes (when necessary). Remember the core is to find the right color matching your skin and personality. Don’t be afraid to experiment, be bold, and don’t miss your chance to shine!
