Spring 2017 Trends: Makeup

Spring is a time for freshness and coming to life after the long cold winter. I know I'm excited for the spring and summer makeup colors every year. There are two trends that I am particularly excited about this year, the blush color trend and metallics.

Blush
Soft pale pink is a super hot color for this spring. You will see it in clothing, handbags, shoes, nail polish and lipstick. The nude nail polish and nude lipstick trends have been going on for quite sometime now. The pale pink trend adds a little fun color to the neutral nude look. 

The pale pink lip and nail can a pink nude or a bright pale pink. It can be opaque or sheer. It can be cream or metallic. It's fresh and springy! To get the look, try Zoya Piper, a semi sheer blush pink cream nail color and Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Native, a soft pink cream lipstick.

Metallic
I'm really excited about the return of metallic makeup for lips and eyes. Matte lipstick has been all the rage. It looks great on young lips but can look too dry and flat on older lips. I have always loved a metallic lip. Metallic lipstick and/or gloss creates a moist reflective look. Perfect for both younger and older lips. I love the magical shimmer and shine! Try NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Cream. There are 18 amazing shades including funky blues and greens. This is Crystalized Metal, #16, a metallic pink.

Fabulous!!! 

Also try Urban Decay Vice Special Effects Lip Top Coat in 11 glimmering shades.

Matte eye shadow has also been trending for some time and still is. Metallic shadows are joining them. As for metallic eye shadow, many people say that older people should not wear metallic eye shadow. I have to disagree. It's all in how you wear it. A shimmering metallic shadow worn just on the eyelids brings youthful reflective light to the eyes. I do feel that older eyes should definitely stay away from highly pigmented frosted eye shadow which tends to accentuate lines and wrinkles.

I found this new NYX metallic eye shadow palette, Cosmic Metals Shadow Palette 01. 6 glowy gorgeous colors in shades of gold, peach, mauve and plum! Apply a sheer layer or build it up for nicely pigmented color.
