5 Unexpected Color Combos to Try This Spring
Posted on March 15 2023
Want to mix up your makeup game this season? Push the “rules” aside and try out a totally unexpected (and somewhat quirky!) color combination.
Whether you choose to apply them as an eyeshadow and lip gloss pairing or as a multi-colored manicure, these spring-ready mashups will have you wondering why you never added them to your repertoire before. Check out our five favorite shade duets and the products that will help you get the look below.
Fiery Red + Mint Green: If you think red and green belong in the holiday season, think again—switching up the shade of green to something super muted completely changes the game. Pair our Sheer Gloss in Caliente with our Nail Polish in Ecstasy to ease into the combo.
Tangelo Orange + Sky Blue: Go high-contrast with these two complementary colors. We recommend combining them on your nails—use our Nail Polish in Sunrise and Cielo. Or, swipe on our Mineral Eyeshadow in Skylar and pair it with our Lipstick in Coral and/or Multi Pot in Peony.
Fuchsia Pink + Apricot Peach: This is arguably the most traditionally “spring” color duo of the group, but it still packs a punch (and can we worn a ~ton~ of different ways). Here’s a few of our favorites—Powder Blush in Apricot and Lipstick in Mauve, Nail Polish in Wishful and Daquiri, Sheer Gloss in Luscious and Mineral Blush in Haze or Matte Luxe Lip in Flamingo and Mineral Blush in Sunset.
Ballerina Pink + Grass Green: This may seem super quirky, but hear us out! It’s like imitating the hues of your favorite spring flower in makeup form. And it’s more wearable than you might think, try drawing on our Eye Defining Pencil in Iguana and pairing it with any of the following pinks—Mineral Eyeshadow in Platinum, Matte Luxe Lip in Tutu, Lip Color in Truth or Dare, Eyeshadow in Bisque or Nail Polish in Rose Quartz.
Macchiato Brown + Digital Lavender: Why wear one of spring’s two trendiest colors when you can wear both? Pair our Nail Polish in Firewood and Pleasure or wear our Eyeliner in Chocolate Brown (or our Precision Liquid Liner in Taureg) with our Mineral Eyeshadow in Euphoria. If a bold lip is more your thing, try our Lip Gloss in Caramel or Lip Color in Chocolate Cherry.
