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.
