A new season is here which means it’s time to spring into new makeup colors and shades.
During the fall and winter months, the popular colors leaned toward darker, dramatic eyes and lips. Now, it’s time to lighten those shades especially during the day.
“This spring season is all about having a more natural tone which really enhances your beauty at another level,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “For starters, during the daytime, go ahead and put away that heavy foundation and use a tinted moisturizer instead.”
Skin Care Heaven, based in San Diego, is the leading destination for top skin care products and offers an onsite spa and skin care research center.
Tinted moisturizers have a wonderful way of hydrating the skin with a hint of color.
“Look for a tinted moisturizer like Revision Intellishade because it has an SPF of 45,” she said. “While this product conceals because of the tint, it protects and corrects your skin on an anti-aging level because of enhanced peptides.”
Tinted moisturizers offer a beautiful, glowing bare facial canvas.
While plums and wines were great hues for the lips during the fall and winter months, the warmer, spring trend is inviting pinks and lighter shades.
“During the day, a lip gloss is excellent,” she said. The spokesperson continued, “Our favorite lip gloss is made by Jane Iredale because it adds a gorgeous coat of shine while the mint and ginger ingredients naturally plump your lips.”
The spokesperson pointed out the must have colors this season are tourmaline, cotton candy, pink candy and neutral.
In the evenings, though, a lipstick is normally worn and the color can be a darker.
In fact, during Fashion Week 2013, a few models did have a deeper lip color leaning more toward crimson which added a great “after five” touch.
Makeup professionals are also telling women to use brown mascara during the day and switch to black for the evening time.
As for the upper eye lids, natural and neutral tone colors are the pick this season. “Again, the mineral makeup Jane Iredale line has a favorite called Glo Eye Shadow Trio in Sandstone which offers the perfect blend of color to highlight your eyes naturally.”
This spring season, it’s all about having that subtle natural look with a splash of color to highlight your best feature.
