Ahh springtime is finally here and with it comes a variety of fun colors and trends to go with the season! Despite all the allergies and sweaty spring cleaning, you should always look good, right? This time of the year is the perfect time to showcase all the soft, warm, and flowery colors that you can wear from head to toe to match the season. In addition to the usual spring looks, more and more colorful makeup trends have been blooming so you can look as fresh and vibrant as the sprouting flowers. Let’s take a look!
If you’re not usually in the habit of wearing a lot of bright or heavy makeup, you’re in luck because nude or natural makeup is a classic look for spring and thankfully, doesn’t take much to create! For an overall natural looking face, try out Dr. Jart+’s Premium Beauty Balm. This multifunctional BB cream moisturizes, corrects skin tone, and provides UV protection for a great combination of makeup and skincare. It has excellent coverage that blends evenly onto your skin and leaves you with a smooth flawless complexion. It’s great for under makeup or set it with a light powder and you’re done!

It may not look as weird as you’d think. This glittery waterproof eyeliner glides on smoothly for an easy application and resists smudging so that your eyes stay perfect all day. Or perhaps the #2 Jade Green shade may better fit your tastes? Keep your eyes looking as vibrant as the flowers!
