Winter is finally coming to an end and we couldn’t be happier, this past season can leave us feeling depleted for many reasons and spring is a fantastic time to try something new and reinvent your look.
Spring 2020 brings us so many exciting new beauty trends, we may be in the ’20s but by no means is conventional makeup making a comeback. This coming season, it’s all about having fun and making a statement.
It’s time to put away those dull wintertime palettes and fill your dressing tables with a pop of colour, read below for the top 8 trends you can try.
1. Embellish Those Eyes
We accessorise so many other parts of our bodies, so why not our eyes? Heading to a party, festival or just feeling a little adventurous? Use gems, stickers or anything else that takes your fancy and get creative.
Gone are the days of adding glamour just to the corners of our eyes, under the lower lid is a look that has gone down wonders on the catwalk and it isn’t too garish either.
For an easy dramatic look, use some high-quality false eyelashes to really finish it off, it’s a quick solution for the lazy fashionista, you can find a great range of lashes at https://flawlesslashesbyloreta.com/collections/lashes.
2. Creative Eyeliner
Brace yourself, eyeliner doesn’t have to just line your eye. In fact, you can now get as inventive as your imagination will allow you and create any design and it’s actually in fashion!
Some ideas have included clouds, angel wings and even animal tails. This look is no longer just for Halloween parties, you can do it all year round! Teamed with a statement eyeshadow gives it the ‘wow’ factor.
If you don’t have a very steady hand, we recommend using a pencil liner instead of liquid, it’s a lot easier to correct mistakes and your lines don’t have to be as neat.
3. Romantic Hair
It’s finally time to wave goodbye to space buns and blunt cut bobs, the New Romantic era is upon us once again. The ‘40s inspired hair hasn’t really seen a resurface since after WWII but now it’s time for it to shine.
Elegant hair combs, clips and pins should be the next things you rush to buy. Team with textured waves and spirals and simply pin-up your sides for a coiffed up style.
4. Rogue Rouge
Every season, red lips are on the runway and probably always will be. The red lip is a classic fashion statement and women have been following this trend for decades. But how can we keep this current?
This spring, it is all about mattes in bright cherry shades. Complimented with the ‘clean skin’ look, bold brows and very subtle mascara, you can scream to the world you mean business during the day and ready to party at night. To make sure that your lipstick gives you the right look, always prep your lips beforehand with an exfoliating lip scrub and you’ll get your proper pout.
5. Glossy Goals
At the beginning of the Millennium, we saw a huge surge in lip gloss and then it seemed to disappear with the invention of the matte lipstick. However, gloss is now back with a vengeance.
Chanel’s spring fashion show saw models with clear and nude glosses on their lip, cheeks and eyelids, and do you know what? It really works! Think of a highlighter with some added sheen. If you want to add colour to your lips with your gloss, just use some tinted lip balm first.
6. Contrasting Colours
You probably wouldn’t be seen dead sporting a bit of orange with blue, well, you may change your mind now. Choosing shades that are at the opposite end of the colour wheel, such as yellow and purple is a great way to throw out conventional norms this spring.
Sweep one colour over your top lid and the other on your lower lash line, you can be as subtle or dramatic as you want, finish it off with a jet-black mascara.
7. Goth Lips
Before you recoil in horror from the memories of that awkward teenage phase, hear us out. Goth lips are back and not something you’ll be ashamed of looking back at photos on a few years.
Purples, maroons and even blacks are hot on trend for spring 2020. Make sure you moisturise your lips well before applying, as darker colour can show up any cracks much more than your trusted light pinks.
Compliment with light grey eyeshadow and neutral clothes and you’ll be the belle of the vampire ball.
8. Baby Blues
Blue eyeshadow is back! Whether you shudder at these words or are filled with excitement, this trend does come with a warning.
Used wrong, you can instantly look like a pre-teen from 2002 who raided their mum’s old makeup stash and thought if Hilary Duff can do this surely, I can too? Wrong.
Marc Jacobs knows how to work this on the runway and the key is choosing the right shade for your skin tone and proper blending. For lighter skin tones, choose a pastel blue with grey undertones. Darker skins tones will look amazing with sapphire shades, especially if you choose a liquid eyeshadow base coat for serious colour.
Use a fluffy brush and blend across your top lid and lower lash, the trick is to make it look like a minimal effort was put in, even if it did take your hours.
