Spring Makeup Trends

Fashion week was flush with one eye-catching look after another. You could tell that one celebrity makeup artist went above and beyond to create runway-worthy looks, and other makeup artists are taking notes to make sure that they already know the Spring makeup trends we’ll start to see in the coming months once the snow has melted. These are some of the must-try Spring makeup trends to get ready for!

Bold Eye Makeup

No makeup makeup looks became a staple in 2022, but that’s slowly becoming a thing of the past for those who want to stay in style. While no makeup looks will have their place, especially among those living a minimalist lifestyle, they weren’t seen a lot on the runways. 

Taking its place was a bold look with smokey eyes, and winged eyeliner is officially trending again! Spice up pastel Spring outfits with a bold eyeshadow color to add a pop of color to your look.

Winged Liner

Does winged liner ever honestly go out of style? It doesn’t, but we didn’t see it taking center stage in 2022 as we have in previous years. Thankfully, it will be back in action once Spring 2023 hits! It’s time to brush up on your cat eye looks and pick up a few eyeliner stencils if needed. 

Or, you can take a few tips from makeup artists to get the perfect wing. For example, makeup artists recommend clenching your toes while applying eyeliner to steady your hand.

Dewy Skin

Dewy skin makes a huge comeback when the flowers start to bloom. This Spring, opt for products that give you a dewy finish instead of always going matte. Dewy BB creams, foundations, and products with a little sparkle will be the biggest Spring trends of the season.

Minimal Makeup

Models were seen strutting down the runway wearing minimal makeup. Make no mistake that this is not a no-makeup makeup look. Instead, it means that you’re wearing a little bit of makeup, not full glam. There’s a very careful balance to achieve there. 

Pair a dewy foundation with fluffy brows and a touch of color on your cheeks to pull off the perfect, minimal makeup look. 

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($69)

Tarte Tinted Moisturizer ($36)

Blush Sticks

Blush sticks are going to be huge this Spring! They are the perfect way to add a pop of color, you can find blush sticks for skin tones of every shade, and they complete your minimal makeup look. Thankfully, you can find a blush stick now for every price range!

Smokey Eyes

Smokey eyes never really go out of style, just like winged eyeliner, but they will be huge this Spring. Remember that smokey eyes don’t always have to be in black and grey! You can create a smokey eye with any color, even green shadow. Pair your smokey eyes with an otherwise natural look to enjoy the best Spring makeup trends!

Super Blush

Runway models took blush to new heights during Fashion Week. Various colors of blush were layered on top of one another to create a cosmic, theatrical look that is simply gorgeous! The heavy-handed blush look just might be making a comeback this Spring! 

Not only is it about heavy-handed blush, though. This Spring makeup trend is all about expressing yourself! It’s about having fun with makeup and doing what makes you feel amazing, even if it involves wearing five shades of blush!

To rock this trend, pick two blushes: one cream and one powder. Start with your cream blush, then set it with the powder blush. If you want more than one color, adjust this method accordingly.

Color Pops

Not a fan of the brown lipstick trend that’s coming your way? This one might be right up your alley. Color pops are all about making a statement, and statement makeup is the perfect way to do that! Add a pop of color to your look with neon eyeshadow, purple lipstick, or brightly colored eyeliner this Spring.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini-Norvina Palette ($29)

Getting Glossy

The super dewy look of everything glossy will be seen this Spring and made a huge statement throughout Spring fashion week. Using highlighters that create a super dewy face is going to be huge! Not a fan of highlighters; try creating a dewy look with strobe cream. 

A high-shine face isn’t the only glossy trend! Pick up some of your favorite lip glosses, and don’t throw out your Dior lip oil once winter is over. Glossy lips make a powerful statement. This Spring is all about statements, makeup artistry, and letting your inner self shine through, whether that means natural beauty or your inner makeup artist. 

The glossy eyeshadow trend will also be seen again this Spring. If you’re just now learning about it, it’s not too late to use your eye gloss!

Our Recommendations

Bare Minerals Lip Laquer ($20)

Eyeko Lid Gloss ($20)

Glitzy Glam

Whether it’s face jewels, glitter eyebrows, or a swipe of your favorite liquid glitter eyeshadow, glittery makeup products are an enormous makeup trend that we’ll see everywhere this Spring. 

When enjoying this trend, try not to overdo it. If you wear glitter eyeshadow, you don’t want to have a super dewy face, and glossy lips, and be covered in highlighter, too. There are so many Spring trends that you can enjoy one a day all season long!
