This spring on the runway, the concept has been Bright Poppy Lips and Crème Cheek colors to match. With barely anything on the eyes and flawless dewy skin, the look needs very defined brows to compensate.
Electric oranges, Miami pinks, and Raspberries are the jam this spring and summer. Right now I love gel lip colors because they give a light pop of color and they look fresh and youthful. If you’re going for bold and aren’t afraid of color, try a matte orange-red lip color.
For Flawless skin, I have been using Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer, Laura Mercier has the best tinted moisturizer on the planet. If you don’t want to commit to dewy all over, try Radiance primer or Golden Pink highlight from Laura Mercier and place on the high points of your face to give touches of glow. You don’t need to layer powders, instead use a couple of crème products to keep your skin looking natural with a touch of translucent powder on your T-Zone to absorb any excess oil.
This look is so effortless, it cuts your makeup time in half in the morning by not having to spend so much time on your eyes. If you choose to add an eyeliner, add some color instead of brown or black, like a teal or shade of blue. This might take you out of your comfort zone, but many times it can be a better fit that enhances your eye color. My clients tell me all the time they would have never chosen that color but they love the way it looks on. If you’re going out, chic cat-eyes are especially big for spring.

The moral of the story is keep your skin raw, natural, and dewy rather than using makeup to contour or completely transform your face. You can always throw in some attitude with your bold lip color or rebel eyeliner.
