Spring has sprung, and it’s time for freshness and renewal. Ditch the drab colors of winter for spring-inspired, ultra-flattering shades and colors. This season it’s all about pastel eyes, dewy cheeks, and a natural makeup glow. Days are getting longer, so makeup that can transition from day to night is necessary. Let’s welcome the season with a complete collection of makeup for your ethereal spring look.

For Face: A luminizing foundation like Becca’s Luminous Skin Tinted Moisturizer or Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation will give you a healthy dose of color you seek, without the heavy feel. Foundation should look smooth and feel weightless. Blend seamlessly for the perfect natural look.

For Eyes: Bright eyes and soft pastels are the palette for spring, with fully groomed brows. Pastel shadows like Bobbi Browns’ Metallic Eye Shadow in Lavender works for any eye color, and is soft enough for day or night. Line your eyes with a neutral brightening liner like Shiesedo’s Duo Eye Liner in Desert Dusk. It opens the eyes for a fresh, ‘doe’ look. Keep your brows tamed and groomed with Anastasia’s Clear Eyebrow gel.

For Cheeks: Cheeks should be left natural, with a flush of pink, like Bobbi Brown’s Pale Pink Cream/ or Powder Blush applied to the apples of your cheek. To add a little more definition to cheeks, apply a bronzer like Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer in the hollows of your cheek and along the cheek bone. This will give you the perfect bronze glow.

For Lips: Lips are kept neutral and nude. No need to fuss with drying lipsticks. Apply sheer natural gloss in nudes, browns and berries like Almay’s Pure Blends Natural lip gloss or Keihls lip gloss to give your look a polished finish.
