Makeup Trends for Spring 2016 – What’s in store for YOUR face?

It’s Springtime peeps! And no matter who you are, you cannot deny the joy of the warmer, brighter weather and the colour that seems to return to the world! Makeup for Spring 2016 defies all the old clichés of soft pastels and colours that blend gently. This year it’s different and I, for one, love the Spring look. It’s bright, it’s edgy and yet just so pretty.

Super Charged and Super Saturated Colour

Get ready to flood your lips with super saturated pastels! The look this year is bold and bright for lips, drenched in powerful colours of pink, peach, purple and the classic red lip too – but the shade right now for red is candy apple, true red, and it looks absolutely great on absolutely everyone! My buy to get a Spring look is Laneige Serum Intense Lipstick (pushBUTTON limited edition) in glorious, bright ‘Funky Pink’ LR01. The colour is just that, funky and fun, and the 35% serum formula keeps my lips soft and satiny.

Lash out in blue

Then, it’s always the case with ‘the eyes have it’ and in Spring we will embrace two big things – big lashes, and big blue colour! In the last few seasons runways have been devoid of major lash trends, but for Spring, it’s time to lash out! Beautiful, layered lashes with many coats of mascara and many designs in false lashes are everywhere. I love the false lash look but steer clear of it as I wear contact lenses and can do without any extra eye irritation. But, I found an awesome product that helps me get to the ‘root’ of the problem and make my own lashes look amazing!It's Peter Thomas Roth Lashes To Die For™ Turbo Night-time Eyelash Treatment. 

This peptide-based treatment targets all three stages of the lash renewal cycle, while you are sleeping. My lashes are definitely thicker and fuller, and they even look longer too. It’s an absolute winner, especially as I have always felt a bit lacking in the eyelash department. The product is ophthalmologist tested and very gentle. You just apply a thin layer along your lash roots as if you were applying eyeliner, pop off to dreamland and wake up to dreamy, thicker lashes!

Another major, bright trend for Spring is eye colour – you can have blue, blue or blue on your eyes ok? Electric blue, navy blue, blue sparkles, blue eyelashes – you get the picture? I am in love with Bobbi Brown Graphite Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Shimmer 15. 

The subdued navy is imbued with a soft shimmer, giving the eyes a spectacular sparkle. And in Spring, you must sparkle as you start to dream of summer holidays!

Use what you love, and leave out the rest!

These are just some of the trends I want to embrace this Spring! There are plenty of others you might like to explore, like a bronze / sunkissed look, dark vampire lips, peach or pink eyelids and lots of eye sparkles. It’s all about using the looks that you love, and making it your own!
