Our Favourite Spring Beauty Trends

Spring is finally here! Step into the season with our favourite spring beauty trends for 2016 (and how to get the looks).

1. Matte Lips in Bold Hues

Move over, glossy pouts – spring is all about velvety, matte lips! Look for shades like bold reds, pinks, corals, and even burgundies (yes, they’re sticking around for Spring) for a statement-making look. We love keeping the rest of our makeup super simple with this look, so that the lips can take centre stage.


Get the Look: 

  1. One of the biggest complaints from new matte lipstick wearers is that it can make your lips super dry – so start by exfoliating with a lip scrub like  e.l.f. Studio Lip Exfoliator.
  2. After exfoliating, prep your lips with a nourishing balm like Lavigne Organic Skincare Lip Therapy to lock in moisture and have a smooth, soft canvas to work with.
  3. Line your lips with a liner in a shade that’s similar to the colour you’re going to use to help it stay put.
  4. Time to apply your lipstick! We love Revlon Ultra HD Lipcolor because it’s super easy to apply, and doesn’t leave lips dry like some other matte formulas.
  5. Clean up any smudges or stray colour around the edges.

2. Dewy, Glowy Skin

There are so many fun makeup looks to try this spring, but almost all of them start with dewy, glowing skin. Most of us aren’t blessed with naturally flawless skin, but luckily faking it is easy.


Get the Look:

  1. First things first, start by exfoliating. It helps remove any dead skin, which can make your skin appear dull and flaky and also prevents your skin care from working as well as it should. We love Derma E Hydrating Scrub because it buffs away that dull skin while giving you a dose of hydration.
  2. Moisturize! We love moisturizing facial oils like Crawford Street Essential Facial Oil – it’s packed with Argan oil, vitamin E, and antioxidants to keep skin nourished and supple.
  3. Apply your favourite liquid foundation. Use a BeautyBlender for the best results.
  4. Get your glow on! Lightly brush a highlighting powder like Physicians Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls over your face and neck.
  5. Finish with Saint Cosmetics Blush on the apples of your cheeks for a natural looking flush.

3. Full Lashes

Thick, full lashes are in for spring, and they’re the perfect trend to try if you want a change that’s noticeable, but not too dramatic.


Get the Look:

  1. Curl your lashes using an eyelash curler. If you’ve never used a curler before, don’t worry! It’s not as scary as it looks, and it helps make your lashes pop.
  2. Swipe on your favourite mascara. We love Dr. Hauschka Mascara because it’s made with natural, nourishing ingredients to give you fuller lashes naturally, and CoverGirl Plumpify blastPRO Mascara because of it’s specialized brush that plumps up your lashes without clumping.

4. Thick Brows

Big brows are here to stay! When you’re doing your brows, the key is to have them look natural and full.


Get the Look:

  1. Figure out where your brows should start, end, and where your arch should be – Elle has a great guide for this.
  2. Use a the coloured wax in a kit like e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit or Maybelline Brow Drama Pro Palette to define, fill in, and shape your brows.
  3. Use the powder in your brow kit to set your brows and clean up any stray lines.
