4 Spring Beauty Trends We Can’t Wait To Try

02.18.2016

Currently, it's freezing outside, half the country is buried in snow, and we're all wondering when—and if—winter will end. Never fear, ladies! Sunny days are ahead, and spring isn't the only thing that's sprung. New season = new beauty trends, and—while Fashion Week gave us a glimpse of what 2016 trends might entail—it's finally time to try them out. Normally, spring beauty is defined by fresh, barely there makeup and romantic hairstyles, but 2016 came with a lot of surprises. Electric blue eyes, French invasion nails, moody lips and more! Below, the spring beauty trends we're most excited about, and—more importantly—how to wear them.

 

BLUE EYED GIRLS 

Well, hello blue eyeshadow—we haven't seen much of you since the '80s! Spring runways were dominated by blue hues, but we weren't sad about it. Metallic teal lids, soft smudges of cyan,  bold cerulean sweeps of liner—the statement shade rocked the runways and stole our hearts. But—like with any non-neutral color—blue begs the question: how exactly do we wear it? Instead of covering your entire lid, try a graphic swipe of blue liner, while keeping the rest of your makeup minimal. You can also go dark and smoky with a deep, sparkly navy.

FEELING VAMPED 

This spring, let your lips do the talking! Normally, we associate a vampy pout with autumn and winter, but deep, dark lips ruled the runways for spring 2016. We have to say, we’re loving the moody merlots,  rich berry hues  and bold oxbloods we’re seeing—they offer a surprisingly modern take on a season normally dominated by pastels. Want to try the trend? Pair your vampy lip with dewy, radiant skin, a quick brow brushing, and a just a touch of mascara. This puts the focus where it belongs—on the mouth—and keeps the look fresh and unexpected.

LASHING OUT

It might seem strange to say, but it's been a hot minute since we've seen models wearing mascara, let alone sporting exaggerated, doll-like eyelashes. There was something of a '70s revival on the spring runways, and with it came some super long, luscious lashes. We're loving the thick, full falsies and feathery fringe we're seeing! The best part? This is a look that can easily be achieved at home.

NOT YOUR MAMA’S FRENCH MANI

We know what you’re thinking—French manis? Don’t stress, ladies—these aren’t the basic white tips of the 90s. We're totally reconsidering the french manicure after seeing the cool designs that popped up on spring runways. From v-shaped, oxblood tipped nails to monochromatic manis with negative space details, there are plenty of ways to update this classic. Try using unexpected colors—like vibrant green, lilac and turquoise hues—or even add glitter! Whatever you decide, the results will be très chic.
