Eye Makeup: Flirty Spring Makeovers
Ellisha Rader Mannering
Are you ready to lighten your look for spring? Is it time for a makeover? If so, consider starting with your eyes. Eyes are one of the first things that people notice when they look at you. Perfect eye makeup can set the stage for a certain style, compliment a cute outfit or hairstyle, and pull your entire look together. Here are a few simple ways to give your eyes a spring makeover.
Soft colors and shades are what spring is all about. Pastel pinks, greens, and purples look great with any skin tone and eye color and will match your favorite sundresses, printed tops and spring accessories. Apply more than one color to your eyelids for a unique and fun look. Add a light shade of pink or white just under your eyebrows to brighten the eyes.
While you may be partial to big, thick, dark lashes, there is something about thin lashes that screams spring and summer. Trade those thick heavy lashes for some that are thinner and maybe longer. You can always add a coat of mascara to make them a little thicker if desired. If you usually go for dark, black lashes, choose a lighter shade of brown instead.
If you insist on wearing eyeliner in the spring, go lighter. Dark, thick eyeliner will not go well with your light eye shadow colors and can take away from your desired look. Instead of using a dark black, choose a light brown or gray instead. You can also give colored eyeliners a try. Purple, blue and green all work well with pastel eye shadows and will allow you to accent your eyes without making them too dramatic.
Spring makeup should be light and fresh. Just by trading out your dark colors for lighter ones, you can give your face a fresh and glowing look that is sure to look great all season.
