Easter Makeup Tips for a Spring Look
Lindsey Caldwell, the makeup artist of Marco Two Union Square in Seattle, suggests lighter makeup and flirty pink glosses and cheeks for spring and especially for your Easter makeup. Now that spring is here, gone are the days of overly dark eyes, Caldwell advises. Instead of a dark and sultry look, she prefers a dewy finish to spring makeup looks.
You can create your own dewy finish for your spring makeup look by adding a small dab of moisturizer to your foundation while also applying a highlighter to your cheekbones. Lindsey Caldwell also recommends a pink cream blush for the perfect “springtime finish.”
“Without going too severe with pastels, light colors within the pink/purple/blue family are always a nice touch,” says makeup artist Erica Maniscalco. “Mac is a good brand to work with because they have a huge range of tones with each color.”
Clean and Colorful Makeup Looks for Spring and Easter
To make the most of your spring and Easter looks, move away from the dark colors and welcome colorful beauty. Try fun spring makeup colors like peach and lilac, pink, and more. Enjoy all the fantastic shades of spring and nature, and try a new look or two for a fresh DIY makeover.
“This season is going to be very romantic,” say the experts at Michael Todd Cosmetics. “Porcelain skin with a matte finish is always the trend for spring. A very clean, but made-up look is what this spring is all about. The eyes will be very simple, yet full of color. Colored mascara will also make a huge comeback. Women are getting edgier and bolder with their makeup so we will definitely be seeing a shift from the sexy, sultry eye to a (way) muted 1970’s look.”
