Spring Makeup Trends: Love It or Leave It?
Browsing through pictures of the various 2014 Fashion Week runways and red carpet events, I noticed some spring makeup trends that keep popping up! Sure they look great on the red carpet and the runway, but how applicable are these spring makeup trends to everyday life? You decide!
Colorful Eyeshadow | One trend I love this spring is colorful eyeshadow! Long gone are the days of neutral tones. We saw celebrities, like Lupita Nyong’o, coordinate their eyeshadow with the color of their red carpet dresses. Try matching your eyeshadow with your favorite maxi skirt. Keep the rest of your outfit simple and I guarantee you’ll love the look!
Dark Toned Lipstick | We all know earth tones are in this season thanks to shows like The 100. Another earthy trend which can be seen in the makeup world is dark lipstick tones. Cranberry and deep purple lipstick tones create a sophisticated and elegant look when paired with your favorite all white, black, black-and-white and grey outfits!
Neon Eyeliner | Who says eyeliner has to be black? Apparently no one this season! Brightly colored eyeliner is a great way to make a bold statement this spring! Pick your favorite color and a fun accessory to match and your look will pop!
Ombré Lipstick | We’ve all seen ombré in hair and on our clothing, but now people are applying this trend to their lip color. How do you do it? Easy! Pick your favorite color, apply a darker tone on your outer lips and a light color in the center.

I’ve seen that some Pinterest and YouTube makeup fanatics are huge fans of this trend– however I am still undecided.
