Spring 2015 Makeup Trends

Spring is just around the corner, and if your closet needs a refresh so does your beauty routine. The Spring 2015 runway was rife with beauty inspiration and artistic visuals. From spins of classic beauty looks to avant-garde flourishes, this season’s beauty looks ran the gamut. There were flirty and fun girly looks, eccentric graphic designs, but the most prevalent look was the minimal barely there makeup look. Wanna know more? Read on for my rundown of Spring 2015’s Top Makeup Trends.

Wing It 

This season takes the winged/cat eye trend that has been going strong for years now, and this time around the industry has upgraded it and made it more dramatic and geometric. You can either go for a fully lined cat eye look in blue liner or a heavily drawn on top liner with a futuristic feel, either way a more pronounced cat eye will do wonders in giving your spring look a modern uplift. These cat eye looks are perfect for evening, and will look great with your favorite LBD.

Doll Face

This season’s doll-like beauty look is all about pink lips and a wide-eyed look punctuated by high impact lashes. Lips that range from pinkish nude to hot pink Barbie lips, and lashes that range from 60s Twiggy-esque to 80s maximum volume drama, the doll face look has a variety of incarnations that you can play around and have fun with. This look is best paired with spring’s traditional floral frocks and pastel looks.

Red Alert

Red lips are always a permanent staple in the beauty industry lexicon. It is like a sleek black pump that never goes out of style. For Spring 2015, the red lips come in a more stained look. This “just bitten” look is especially perfect for balmy summer afternoons. Best paired with a bold, perfectly sculpted brow. This is a fuss-free way to get your beauty look on trend.

Purple Rain

The smoky eye look isn’t exclusive to neutrals anymore. Shades of purple have been used to create a refreshing and colorful take on the smoky eye. This unexpected color creates a look of subtle sophistication. Keep the rest of your beauty look simple when taking this trend out for a spin, and let your eyes be the focus of attention.

Feelin’ Blue 

Blue eyeshadow gets a bad rep for being unwearable and borderline uncool. Spring 2015 has brought back the blue eyeshadow in a big way, and in the process it has proven that this eye look can work for a variety of eye colors and skin tones. Experiment with different shades of blue and see what works for you.

High Brow

Yes people, eyebrow coloring and bleaching is a thing. Kim K. and Cara Delevingne have both taken the plunge into a brow color change, and it is proving to be a favorite of fashion rebels to express their inner wild child. This trend may not be for everyone, but it is certainly a noteworthy trend that you can try with some temporary eyebrow tint.

Au Naturel

Spring 2015’s most dominant beauty look is the barely there minimal makeup look. The perfect no makeup look always start with great skin, of course. Invest in your skincare and stick to routine that works for you to ensure that you have the best canvas for this beauty trend. The key to the no makeup look are groomed brows and a healthy looking complexion, which you can either use a bit of bronze or blush to achieve. Finish off with some lip balm and a tiny amount of gloss and you’re all set.

Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

The smoky eye look is another trend that has cemented itself as a beauty industry classic. This season designers showed heavily lined raccoon like dark smoky eyes. Channeling a “morning after party vibe” this edgy beauty look is best paired with a leather jacket or for some sartorial contrast, a polished and tailored ensemble.
