1. Pucker Up: Salmon Is The New Pink
Ditch the red, though it may be bold it sure has been done before and trends are all about stepping outside box.This Spring lip shades are as pink Salmon and as orange as creamsicle. If you want to get creative, choose one shade as a lipstick base and the other as your gloss, personalizing your look.
2. Skin Tones: We Said Olive Not Orange
Despite orange hues and bronze skin that many believe look natural, the real way the get the natural look is to keep your look realistic. Instead of covering your face (and sometimes missing your neck) with powdered bronzer, opt for a tinted to moisturizer to keep hydrated and one shade all around. Bronzer’s can easily wear throughout the day, leaving your face to look more than one shade at a time. Keep at natural, less really is more.
3. Cheek To Cheek: Fighting The Winter Blues
They say in the winter you can get so pale you look blue, but the goal is to look vibrant with a warm, rosy tone. While a tinted moisturizer offers an even skin tone, a pale blush is quite flirty and will you give you some sun kissed dimension. Shy away from deeper pinks that can make your skin look paler, and choose a warm, pale pink that is both playful and natural.
4. Eye See Some Shades Of Spring
Neon made its return and now its making its way out, but its leaving softer shades of brighter colors behind. Pastels like warm yellow, green and pinks look great lightly patted against the eye. It’s not too head turning but just enough to freshen up your Spring ready look.

Style by design or in classic french structure, but avoid the nudes and whites and choose the bold and bright.
