Whether you dare to be gutsy or desire a more natural look, there’s something fresh and inspiring to choose from. Read on to discover the latest spring beauty trends.  

Tinted Moisturizer - A combination of moisturizer and foundation creates a tinted moisturizer, which can even out your skin tone while providing a beautiful, dewy finish.  Tinted moisturizer is usually much lighter than traditional foundation. This coverage is basically light to medium and lets your skin shine through. One of the benefits is that it hydrates and nourishes the skin while giving you a more luminous and natural look.  Application is much easier because it blends into the skin seamlessly. If you choose a tinted moisturizer, make sure it contains sunscreen to protect your face from the sun’s harmful rays. 

Cat Eyes - This classic eye look has been popular for decades and isn’t disappearing. You can expect to see the cat-eye shape with a few new twists for spring.  Try incorporating two shades of eyeliner, either matching or contrasting to create some extra drama. Draw a thicker line to accentuate the shape and add a few false lashes to make those eyes really pop.  You may want to experiment with different colors to create your own signature look. Make sure to use a light hand to draw the cate eye and remember that practice makes perfect.  

Statement Lips - You have the option of choosing a highly pigmented color or a glossy lip, which is very popular this season. Just add a matching lip liner to ensure longevity. If you love shiny lips, opt for a vibrant color and top with a shimmery pigment in the center for added pop.   

Metallics - This spring, be prepared to see metallic shimmer on the eyes, which has made a huge comeback.  If you love glitz and glamour, then shimmer and shine is the perfect choice for you.  Choose any shade from silver, gold, copper, or bronze to create an intense smoky eye., Apply the color from the lid all the way to the crease.
