One of the first things I do for Spring is to check out the new makeup trends. I know, you all thought I was going to say something like check my gardens or clean up the yard, ha! Well a girl has to have her priorities, right? I think you all know by now that I absolutely adore makeup. It's fun, it hides flaws, and enhances our beauty. So I ask you, what's not to love!
The colors of Spring and Summer still seem to be fuchsia and coral. But, the theme is BOLD! Are you ready for that? Oh I so am! According to Fashion Magazine the lips are coated in a bright fuchsia or orange.

Fashion Magazine also notes that a bright, bold eye is all the rave this Spring. Just remember though that you don't do both at the same time. Choose one and downplay the other. I tend to prefer to highlight my eyes, mainly because I love to play with eyeshadow.
Are you bold enough for blue? I love to use this shade as an eyeliner. For me, it really enhances my brown eyes!
How about green? All hues of green too! If you're bold go with the lime green. If you're not so bold go with the moss green. Check out Stylelist for more on green. Oh and scroll down to the end of the page because there's a great tutorial on the smoky eye! I sure do love me some smoky eyes!
Real Beauty advises "For a fun, nighttime look, start by applying lighter lilac shades on the inner corners of the eye and darker lavender and plum hues as you move outwards on"
Super pretty, yes? I think you can modify this look to work for daytime too! Don't be afraid to use some bright purple on those eyelids. What fun and oh so chic!
Have you tried the SmokyShadow Blast from Covergirl? They have some awesome color combinations and there's no guess work! Super pretty.
Don't be afraid to shine this season. And, there's plenty to choose from so you can shop in your price range.
Covergirl, Mabelline, and Revlon all have great colors to choose from as do Estee Lauder and Elizabeth Arden.
Now, get out there and be bold this Spring!
