Spring is finally here! With the longer, lighter days comes softer, fresher skin, glossy lips and fluffy brows. The ‘barely there’ look is back with a bang, and Kim Kardashian’s worldly renowned makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic has said so himself. In a recent article, Mario shared the top beauty mishaps women around the world are making; from over lined eyebrows to mismatching their foundation shade to their skin. He then gave some expert advice regarding the current makeup trends and how to master them.
Wave goodbye to contouring, and say hello to a naturally glowing, smooth complexion. The queens of contour; the Kardashians are the latest stars to follow this stripped back trend and have recently been seen favouring a more subtle appearance over their typically, heavy makeup. Mario has made it clear that the days of overly chiselled cheekbones are sadly over, but in its place is the newly preferred ‘glossy look’. Consisting of cream and liquid products for a radiant finish, this trend is easily achievable.
When it comes to spring makeup looks; it’s all about the skin. Ditch the heavy coverage foundation and opt for a lighter product, such as the L.A Girl PRO.bb cream HD High Definition Beauty Balm. This will eliminate imperfections, without being too heavy or cakey and the built in moisturiser provides a stunning, healthy glow.
Apply a highlighter or illuminator for a subtle, sun kissed look. We are currently loving Peaches and Cream’s Goddess illuminator. This gorgeous golden toned product is designed to highlight and illuminate your face in one. It’s highly versatile, so you can either apply alone or mix in with your foundation for fabulous results.
As much as we love a good ‘instagram brow’ not everyone can pull it off, and let’s be honest it’s not exactly a look that can be recreated on a daily basis unless you are a professional. A huge trend at the minute, is of course the fluffy brow. A look that has been emulated by the likes of supermodel Gigi Hadid - this softer approach to eyebrows gives a gorgeous, natural finish that as a result; looks effortless.
Achieving a less harsh look is actually quite simple, with the switch of a few products ensure your makeup kit is spring ready and put these tips to the test. Try softer, brown and gold toned eye shadow products in place of a darker smoky eye and for a less dramatic brow, we recommend using a pencil such as the LA Girl Shady Slim Brow Pencil. Choose a shade that is as close as possible to your natural hair colour, or opt for a shade lighter. Use the built in spoolie head to blend, and brush the product through the hairs for a softer look.
No makeup look is complete without a lipstick or in this case gloss. Key to creating a fresh, natural vibe a rose coloured lip balm or gloss gives a gorgeous shine, making a refreshing change to a heavy, matte lip. For a super shiny finish try Milani’s Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatment Moisturizing in shade Repairing Primrose. This impressive multi-tasking product provides nourishment to your lips, giving a boost of hydration as well as a hint of colour. With skin loving ingredients such as conditioning grapeseed, and moisturising almond coco, this product will guarantee kissable, soft lips in minutes.
Last but not least, every girl knows that lashes are an essential whatever the season. This is a trend that won’t be dying down anytime soon, and we have enlisted our favourite pair of falsies to help tie your soft, spring makeup look together. House of Lashes Style ‘Au Naturale’ are the perfect choice. Adding delicate volume, elongated ends and a medium length; these lovely lashes work to enhance your natural beauty.
