Get Ready to Look Beautiful with New Spring Makeup!
Even though spring has not yet sprung, the new spring makeup shades have already hit the shelves and the Internet! From subtle neutrals to all out bold brights, spring makeup for 2009 covers all the cosmetic bases. Take a look at some of the hottest makeup products from the spring collections:
SPRING MAKEUP: NARS
Always ready with trend setting colors for every season, NARS gets a gold star for their Blush and Bronzer Duo in Hungry Heart. Blushes paired with bronzing powders are the ultimate tool for achieving a sun-kissed look without the damaging UV rays. Other faves include Sweet Revenge Lip Gloss, a great final touch for a fresh faced look.
SPRING MAKEUP: TARTE
You can’t beat the all-in-one ease of this fabulous new palette from Tarte. The Spring Greening Limited Edition Reusable Straw Palette has 6 vibrant eyeshadows, 3 vivacious t5™ infused lipglosses and a bamboo eyeshadow brush. The inner foam tray is constructed of a post-consumer recycled material, so when the eye shadows are gone, you can remove the tray and use reuse the cool straw palette!
SPRING MAKEUP: URBAN DECAY
One of the best, most fabulous lipsticks I’ve ever laid eyes on, much less used, is Urban Decay’s new Midnight Cowboy Lipstick. It’s a sheer beige with the most subtle sexy iridescence. And if the lipstick itself weren’t enough, the teardrop-shape bullet (etched with an Urban Decay logo) is infused with a decadent crème caramel scent and flavor. Least we forget the case, made from purple metal, and pierced with a mini gunmetal dagger. I also love the new Glide On Eye Pencil in Graffiti; it’s simply stunning.
Smashbox has a hit on their hands with their intuitive makeup items. The latest in the line includes O-Bronze, just in time for warm weather! It goes on white but turns your perfect shade of bronzy beauty, with no worries about a nuclear fallout type look. I’m also psyched about the O-Plump Lip Plumper, which offers color and fullness in one personalized product.
SPRING MAKEUP: CLINIQUE
The new Limited Edition Fresh Bloom Eye Shadow from Clinique is one of those cosmetic items that look so pretty in the package, you almost don’t want to mess it up by using it. But believe me, you won’t be able to resist. Layer the colors or blend them half and half over the eyelid. Use one as a shadow and one as a liner. Use one on the lid and one on the crease or brow bone. With endless options for your peepers, you will adore these shadows.
SPRING MAKEUP: PRESCRIPTIVES
With the new In Bloom Spring Color Collection, Prescriptives has wowed me again! The In Bloom Eye Color Duo in Lily goes on smooth and lasts forever and a day. Prescriptives really takes the guesswork out of which colors are best for you with their unique Colorprint system, too. We can all use a little help now and then.
So now you’re in the know about spring makeup trends and which colors are hot! Warm weather doesn’t have to melt down your makeup; use it as an opportunity to try a fresh faced, non makeup look or go all out with brightly lined eyes and black shimmery nails. Remember, your face is like a canvas that you can paint daily, whatever way your little heart desires. Let spring makeup help you celebrate the glory of the season!
