Foundation. Look for beige, soft pink and tawny tones.
Eyes. Glimmer is hot; frosty is not – it can make you look washed out and sallow. Try out the Kevyn Aucoin Spring Essential Eye Shadow Set in Spring Palette 007, which has this spring’s most-wanted colors in just the right hues, with the perfect touch of shimmer. Smoky eyes are still hot. Instead of going with the traditional super-black smoky eye, consider using eyeliner (at least along the bottom lash line) in a non-traditional color, like dark or olive green, navy blue, dark gray or deep purple.
Blush. The blush colors of the season are peach and light pink. Delicately sweep the blush onto your cheeks for a perfectly flushed glow. You can also use a bit of bronzer to contour your cheekbones and achieve a sultry look.
Lips. Fuchsia, coral, pink and terra cotta are the must-have spring colors for lips. Eliminate the guesswork when looking for the perfect shade for your fair skin and use the Kevyn Aucoin Lip Palette. Remember, if you plan to wear a dark or bright lip color, keep your eye makeup tame (and vice versa).
This season’s color trends can easily look too loud on fair-skinned ladies. To prevent looking like a child who went through her mother’s makeup drawer, layer on your spring makeup a little at a time.
It's Monday morning. You had a late night gabbing and drinking wine with your girlfriends, 6:00 a.m has come way to quick and it's showing….in your eyes. They're the windows to the soul, but they're also a dead giveaway that you haven't been getting your much needed beauty rest.

Spring can kind of be a weird transition time between the winter and summer in terms of the tone of your skin. While you’ll always have the same undertone (cool, warm or neutral), the darkness of your skin can go from ghostly white to sun-kissed over the course of a few weeks. The hot colors for spring and summer are often the same, and the key to not making your makeup look louder than a bullhorn during the spring is to keep it soft-looking.
Concealer: Adjust the color of concealer you use during the spring just as you would your wardrobe. As you spend more time in the sun, you’ll need to use a slightly darker shade of concealer. Ideally, you should use a color that’s a bit lighter than your foundation. The Sensual Skin Enhancer from Kevyn Aucoin Cosmetics has 16 different concealer shades that perfectly cover your blemishes regardless of the season.
UV protection: Those who are truly fashion-forward know you should use SPF protection all year, even on the cloudiest days. The need for UV protection increases as the months start to get warmer. Make sure the daytime moisturizer you use has an SPF component in it. If you use any type of foundation, opt for one that also protects your skin from the sun’s rays.
Eye makeup: Bright eye colors go hand-in-hand with spring and summer. When the season’s hottest colors are particularly bright, layer on the colors lightly during the spring. For some of the best springtime eye shadow color combinations, check out the Essential Eye Shadow set in the Kevyn Aucoin makeup line.
