We’re about a month and a few days away from welcoming beautiful Spring, and here are a few new color trends that ignite that fresh and fun look. Illuminate your eyes and pucker up for pink lips because these shades are going to compliment any Spring outfit.

 



 

DENIM EYES
Like your favorite pair of jeans, this gray-blue eye shade fits any occasion, day or night. Start by applying it over the lash line and in the crease. Use the powder left on the brush to fill in the lid (If you use a cream formula, blend the color from the lash lines into the lids). If you want to dress up the look, use a shimmery version. Try a slightly deeper indigo if you have a dark complexion—it won’t look ashy

PEACOCK SHADOWS
A peacock’s vibrant feathers are designed to be mesmerizing—and so is the effect their bold colors have on your eyes. Start by blending an iridescent purple shadow around the lashes, using a brush to lightly dust the shade all the way up to the brows. Then apply a shimmery teal green along the inner corners. If you have fair skin, “just take the colors to the creases so it’s not overwhelming,” says makeup artist Romy Soleimani. Finish the look with a nude lipstick; you don’t need any other strong shades on your face.

MANGO LIPS
Imagine biting into the ripe yellowish orange flesh of a mango. That juicy shade is exactly what you want on your lips this spring. Surprisingly soft, the color is pretty on all skin tones. It looks best paired with gold eye shadow and bronzed cheeks.
