3 Bold & Beautiful Makeup Trends for Spring

As the weather gets warmer, we’re spending more of our time outside, switching up our wardrobes to fit these brighter days, and more importantly, pivoting just a little bit away from our winter glam and glitz to bring some of that spring softness into our makeup moments. And with fashion shows rolling out across the world - did you catch Pat McGrath at Maison Margiela? - there’s a lot of inspo to go around. 

Here’s four bold and beautiful makeup looks we are absolutely working into our lineup. 

Next-Level Glow

Makeup tends to go glittery and glossy during spring, and this year is no exception: from high-glass skin to my-skin-but-shiny eyeshadow, glitz is still on the cards but it’s taking a softer, sophisticated approach. Think glassy highlight on your cheeks, minimal foundation, and the shiniest lipgloss you can grab, for an all-over radiant glow that gives anything from pearl to outerspace shine. Pait it with a holochrome nail look and some simple silver accessories and you’re ready to rock it. 

Eyes: Essence Multichrome Eyeshadow Topper

Lips: BH Los Angeles 411 Lip Glaze Shimmer Gloss

Cheeks: Catrice Space Glam Holo Highlighter 010 

Face: Revolution Bright Light Face Glow

Nails: Mon Reve French Manicure Silver Tip 004


90s Grunge Nude

On the polar opposite end of the spectrum is smoke: smoky eyes, smoky lips, neutral blusher and pearly highlight. This trend leans hard on the leading ladies of 90s thriller movies, with a little extra dash of sophistication from the deeper grunge leanings - think smoked-out eyeliner and soft-focus lips with a deeper lipliner, and a lot of velvety matte. This look is all about messy and minimal and it’s a super forgiving look to emulate, no matter where your makeup prowess lies. All you need is to focus on neutrals and bringing your best bad self to the surface: easy peasy!

Eyes: Maybelline Shadow Palette 24 Karat Nudes

Lips: Blackup Ombre Lips Duo

Cheeks: Mon Reve Shape Guru Palette

Face: Mesauda Perfect Skin Foundation

Nails: ANNY Mystic Wood


Multicolour Madness

Pastels and bright colours go together like peanut butter and jelly, and with spring well on its way, the range is growing! From bright buttery yellow to Barbie pink, lime green to baby blue, everything colourful is new again - and the best way to showcase all those colours is to wear them all at once. For this, the focus is on the eyes and the cheeks, and creating a gorgeous, sharp look full of angles and interesting lines: it’s makeup maximalism, taken to new, staggering heights. 

Eyes: Revolution Forever Flawless Bird of Paradise Eyeshadow Palette Relove Volume Mascara Lilac

Lips: Max Factor Lip Velvet Matte in Blush

Cheeks: Revolution Blush and Highlight Stick - Champagne Shine

Face: NYX Bare With Me tinted Skin Veil

Nails: Golden Rose Miss Beauty Colorpop Trio
