Spring makeup goes minimal with fresh complexions, cool color combos and pops of berry.
This spring season is sure to bring out your freshest face yet, with a cool crop of makeup shades that bring your beauty routine back to the basics. Take it from the runways of New York and London: Prabal Gurung showcased a nearly bare face highlighted with the palest pink; faded berry lids took over at Derek Lam; and the flushed cheeks at Thakoon really made a statement. While lip colors are rich and matte (see NYX’s new collection of matte liquids), skin is dewy and soft, bringing us back to the “no-makeup makeup” era of the ’90s and the birth of androgynous minimalism. Just add a bit of tinted moisturizer and finish off with a stroke of perfect pink blush. For the lids, a dab of color will do, preferably in a vibrant pastel hue with a punch of sparkle and shimmer. Now get glowing!
