Our Favorite Spring 2014 Makeup Trends

white eyeliner 2014It’s finally warming up and the first day of spring is only a few weeks away! We’re ready to say “goodbye” to wine and berry lip colors and dark smoky eyes and say hello to lighter colors and warmer weather.  Here are our favorite trends for Spring 2014.

Nude Lips – We’re so thrilled the nude lip trend is continuing! If you missed the Oscars, many of our favorite A-listers like Angelina Jolie were rocking a gorgeous nude lip with a stunning smoky eye. Our creme luxe lipstick in Forever Nude is a great option here!

Pastel Eyes – If you’re a “natural look” fanatic – this is perfect for you! Spring colors like pale pinks, lilac, and blues are all over the runway and perfect for the early spring months.

White Eyeliner – This has been a trend for a few seasons, but especially now in the Spring since it pairs so well with pastel eye shadow! White liner will make your eyes appear larger and if you want to play it safe, start by simply smudging some white eyeliner in the inner corners of your eyes (try using one of our eye crayons). You can be more daring by swapping it for traditional black eyeliner, or simply rim your waterline.

The Cat Eye Plus – If you haven’t seen any of the recent runway models, you’ve missed all the awesome graphic eyeliner designs. The classic cat eye is still trending, but many makeup artists have taken it up a notch and tried something more extreme with graphic patterns and designs.

Orange Lips –Forget oxblood and Merlot – Tangerine colored lips are the must-try trend this spring! Let your lips pop by pairing a simple cat eye or neutral eye shadow and mascara for maximum impact.

Sun-Kissed and Glowing Skin – It’s not a new trend, but we’ve been sun-starved for a long winter and we’re dying for sunny beams. Until then, we can fake it with a cream blush and pearly (not shimmery) highlighter. To achieve that glowing look, skip the powder and use a liquid foundation instead.
