On a recent department store shop session, I found myself lingering — not in the expected end-of-winter-sale-section, but at the please-make-me-pretty makeup counter. This wasn’t for my usual replenishment of mainstay products. I had come for a proper sit down. With the warmer weather on the rise, the time was right to update my beauty routine!
What better way to learn the latest makeup must-haves than from the experts themselves? It was a fully rewarding experience — I came out with a whole new look, and all the supplies needed to freshen my face for spring. Ready to give it a go? Here’s where to start.
Makeup Trends and Tips for Spring 2013!
Go for the Glow
Though not exactly a newcomer to the beauty world, luminous skin is once again in this spring. Apparently, everyone wants the I-just-got-back-from-the-Bahamas sheen. In order to achieve a dewy finish, your skin needs to be properly prepped. Try a BB cream for the ultimate in multitasking. And once you’ve found your shade, finish off with a highlighter. Then dust on some bronzer to complete the look.
Brighten the Eyes
Get ready to indulge your eyes in a standout moment! Have fun with blue shadows and teal liners, and get the final pop by tightlining your lashes.
