Makeup Trends for Spring 2017

Mia Taylor

Spring is here and we’re already enjoying the good vibes of sunny weather. As we all know, with the new season comes new trends. This is a very significant transition especially in makeup, as now we should be focusing on a brighter look and avoiding dark and heavy shades, such as those we may have been using last winter. We’re here to highlight some of the big hits this season and help you stay trendy. So, here is what you should focus on this spring.

Blush bombs

This season is all about the blush. Red, pink or brown, it doesn’t matter, as long as it’s not subtle. You have all the freedom you want when it comes to how you should apply it. Whether it’s a brush or your fingertips, it’s super trendy regardless of how you do it and which parts of your face you’re going to cover. You can even cover your cheeks, lids and lips with the same blush if you feel like it.


Bold lips

Nothing says spring like a bold shade of lipstick. This time it’s all about peach, electric orange, fuchsia and purple gray. Let’s not forget about the red lipstick; every shade of red is still a hit. What makes lipstick so great is that it can be enough to make a statement even without any other kind of makeup. The look can be super effective if you keep a bare base and just splash it with red lipstick. This same trend goes for nails; some girls like to match the color of their nails to the color of their lipstick.


Pops of color

Since flowers are blooming and the sun is shining, getting creative with flashy colors is recommended these days. When it comes to eyeshadow, a popular new trend is just stroking it on your lids in no special way. It kind of looks like you just took a brush and drew a thick line above your lashes. This is a really popular look this season, but keep in mind that the focus is not on the shape, but the color.



What is sunny weather without some sparkle and glitter? Again, you have all the freedom in the world to go crazy with glitter. You can combine colors or just stick to one, and cover your lips, lids, lashes or cheeks with it. You can get some of the most amazing shades of skin frost from high-quality Jeffree Star cosmetics. The important thing is that it is eye-catching.


Choose one

These trends are all immensely popular this season. However, under no circumstances should they all be used together. The aim is a daring look, and it can be best achieved by stressing just one thing. Therefore, should choose which feature you want to point out and go easy on the rest. If it’s your eyes and you’re going with the color pop, you lips should be barely noticeable. However, if you’re stressing the lips, then make your eyes and cheeks neutral. When doing so, don’t forget to use the right color. Choosing the right shade of lipstick or eyeshadow is crucial for the spring look. This color is the first and sometimes the only thing people are going to notice in your look, so make it count.

All in all, you get the basic idea of this spring’s makeup trend. Overdoing one feature and blending all others in a neutral look is what this style is all about. If you used to be into nude colors and no shocking shades of lipstick or eyeshadow, it’s time for you to go shopping. You definitely can’t go through this spring without having that color pop everyone’s talking about.
