Posted on March 29 2023
Frosted colors, glossy nude lips, and glowing skin are in for spring. But it’s not all about a downplayed look—edgy eyeliner and statement blush are also on the trend agenda. Scroll down for our five favorite spring makeup trends—all achievable in your own bathroom!—that you’re about to see everywhere this season.
Even if you’re still fighting it, the 2000s era beauty aesthetic is definitely back. But don’t think of it as the same Y2K vibe of the early-aughts—this resurgence is all about a more soft and playful palette of holographic hues, metallics, frosted details, and an array of pastels that are understated and super dreamy.

Now is the time to play with graphic designs that don’t live on your lash line. Create a freehand floating liner look with an uncharacteristically colorful shade of eyeliner by drawing a simple line across your eyelid or go outside-the-box with disconnected wings, zig-zags, or a cloud.

Elevated Nude Lips
Overlined and glossy is the latest iteration of the nude lip that’s popping up everywhere (and it’s super wearable!). Start by choosing a lip liner shade in the brown family that’s a shade or two deeper than your complexion. Use it to slightly overline your lips, going over the color as needed until you’ve reached your desired pigment intensity. Add extra depth in the center of your top and bottom lip before lightly tapping the product into your pout to create a more blurred and blended effect. Finish your look off by applying a liberal coat of coordinating lip gloss over the top.
Bold + Bright Blush
Blush is most definitely back. Make it the focus of your look by extending your favorite statement shade—like apricot, raspberry or bubblegum pink—from your cheekbones up to your temples and onto your eyelids or pair two contrasting shades for an ombré design. The heavily blushed look not only brightens your complexion, but it contours and lifts it as well.
Embrace the au natural look by giving yourself a radiant glow and subtle contour. Reach for a sheer and buildable multi-tasking product that highlights the spots that would be naturally touched by the sun (like the bridge of your nose, cheekbones, and forehead) and apply it there, then add definition with a few sweeps of bronzer. You can even add a few faux freckles with an eyeliner pencil if you’re feeling the look.
