    Ditch the heavy makeup this spring in favor of dewy, healthy-looking skin. Get a fresh face with raspberry pink blush alone, or pair it with a quick swipe of mascara and some lip balm. Wanna go gold? Bronzer is perfect for a sunkissed—but sunless—look. If you’re a gal who likes her beauty regime au naturel, this rose body and face mist is perfect for fakin' that after-yoga glow.

    Forget what you know about spring pastels— when it comes to makeup this season, red lips are everything. From orange-y rouge to daring deep berry, we're embracing 'em all. If red lips aren’t your thing, take a cue from the color of the year, marsala and try out an earthy tone for a more subdued look.

    One thing ya gotta do (makeup-wise) this spring? Fun, funky color on your lids, like this pop of purple. If you want to go metallic,  a quick swipe of gold shimmer shadow over your lids will make your eyes shine like the sun. Wild colors aren’t your thing? Go for a winged cat eye. Hint: a felt-tip liner will give you lots of control and actually help you learn to draw those tricky lines. Meow!

    When it comes to spring manis, bare pinks, mints and bold reds are everywhere. Our fave trend? The negative space mani that designers were rocking this past Fashion Week. To achieve this look, just cut tape in whatever shape you like and apply your polish. Just be sure to wait until your polish has dried before trying to pull the sticker off—otherwise, you’ll end up with a gooey mess.
