5 Hot Makeup Trends for Spring 2016
The arrival of spring means more than just warmer weather; it also means new trends in beauty. If you’re a makeup fanatic, you are going to love the fun new ideas for spring 2016, straight from the runways.
As someone who loves makeup and style, why not use your talents in a new career? With a diploma from Florida Technical College’s esthetics program, you could become a professional makeup artist. Here are five of the coolest trends for this spring, which you can learn how to apply with the right training:
1. Glitter, glitter everywhere.
Nothing about this spring’s makeup trends are subtle, and glitter is not just for little girls anymore. The runways for this season were covered in glittery makeup and glitter as makeup. For a toned down version, try a glitter eyeshadow or a shimmery, all-over face powder to give just a hint of glitter and sparkle.
2. Fun French manicures.
A manicure is like makeup for your fingertips. A French manicure is a classic, but can also be a little boring and conservative. Think fun and festive for this spring. French manicures have gotten a makeover with tips done in bright colors, metallic, and even glitter. You can even add nail art to the neutral base of a French manicure to make it more fun and trendy.
3. Bright blue for eyes.
For anyone who missed this favorite eye shadow shade of the 1980s, it’s back. For spring this year, bright blue hues, applied thickly, are becoming all the rage. From rich cobalt blue and teal eye shadows to shimmering royal blue liner, blues that catch attention are big right now. To go bold, try a bright blue shadow, but for a more subtle take try navy eyeliner.
4. Outlandish eyelashes.
Models on the runway this spring were sporting some wild eyelashes. Some were super think, while others were extra-long. Some faux lashes were even trimmed into unique shapes or came in bright colors, especially blue. You can try this trend without looking too outrageous by trying slightly longer lashes or go bold with colored lashes with toned down shadow and liner.
5. Bronze skin.
With warmer weather and sunny skies, tanned skin is always popular. This spring, look for a light touch. A light bronzer on the places the sun naturally touches is just perfect. Another technique seen on the runways this season has been a mix of shimmery bronzer with face cream for an all over, subtle glow.
