Spring 2015 is slowly but surely approaching and with it comes 5 gorgeous beauty trends that will have you itching to try. Lips and mascara have both gotten bolder, and all this on a dewy, makeup-free face! The DIY party girl look has caught on.
- Dewy skin, no makeup
Forget the matte look of the 20s, “dewy”, “iridescent”, youthful-looking skin looks like a trend that’s here to stay! A trend easy to accomplish due to the perpetual increase in exercise and fitness in spring. Drink lots of water and ease up on the makeup and you’re already a trendsetter!
2. Charcoal-grit eyeliner
Liquid liner has gone from simple and clean to bold and exaggeratedly winged-out. It’s not about the delicate these days—any bold liner, scribbled-charcoal or smoky, will do for this season. It’s all about the DIY here, guys.
3. Light-up lipstick
It’s all about the sultry and bold on the runways these days! From the stained deep berry at Dolce&Gabbana and Carolina Herrera to the burgundy lips at Burberry Prorsum, the bold lip is getting lots of love this season. The quickest method is simply to apply the lipstick straight from the tube, blot, reapply, and blot again for a beautiful and effortless diffused look. Try Acymer’s Touch of Love lipstick in Rose Pink for a bold lip that’s sure to light up your face!
4. Messy messy hair
Finally, a trend my own hair does naturally! We’re seeing messy hair galore on the runways, tousled air-dried waves making for an effortless chic look a la 90s Courtney Love. It fits in well with the messy eyeliner and bold lips. 3.1 Phillip Lim’s look goes like this: Work mousse through your hair, then blow-dry using a round brush. Mist the lower part of your strands with a curling spray, and wrap random pieces around a curling iron to form loose waves that you break up with your fingers. Finish with a shot of hairspray—and you can skip a day without washing it for an even grungier effect!
5. Wet and wild
Coming back with the no-makeup look is the slicked-back, just-got-out-of-the-shower wet hair trend! From Versace to Balenciaga, models are working the slick, shiny look. This is a look all teen girls can accomplish without sacrificing youth or cash. Spritz some shine spray or beach spray at the crown of your head and brush your hair back. Add a few coats of pink lip gloss to go with your shiny hair and you’re done. Wear the look at the office in a chignon or with a glamorous body-con jumpsuit for a girls’ night out.
6. Braid it up
Braids are definitely making a comeback this season, and their versatility may soon overtake the popularity of the ponytail. Whether you’re going for a rock and roll princess look (Rodarte) or a festival one (Marco de Vincenzo), there’s lots to choose from and a lot of it can be done in a matter of minutes. Spritz the braids with beach spray to make them messy!
