Spring beauty trends for 2019

 

As we move slowly into spring, it’s time to start switching up our beauty routines. Not just an excuse for out with the old and in with the new, it’s also the time to get experimental with new trends. For SS19 this means bright colours and glowy, bare skin.

Vibrant eyes


Using bold colour on your eyes can be intimidating, but it’s a stand-out trend for spring and the new season has us reaching for shades of azure blue. Seen on the runway at Erdem and Missoni, Margot Robbie also wore the look at the 2019 BAFTAs proving it’s very wearable when done right. We love the Diorshow On Stage Liner in Pearly Turquoise and the Shiseido Kajal InkArtist in Sumi Sky. Pair with a nude lip to keep it low key, or try an orange lipstick for a more striking combination.



 

Monochromatic pink


For an ultra-feminine look that flatters everyone, try wearing pink tones on both your eyes and cheeks. Channel the SS19 Giorgio Armani girls or Yara Shahidi on the red carpet and finish with natural lips and brows. Charlotte Tilbury’s Luxury Palette in Pillow Talk paired with the Shiseido Minimalist Whipped Powder Blush will brighten up even the dullest spring day.



 

A barely-there base


At the other end of the spectrum, skin was mostly left looking very natural. It could be the Meghan Markle effect that saw freckles being embraced at Preen, while Badgley Mischka and Altuzarra added a dewy-verging-on-shiny glow. Recreate the look by prioritising your skincare routine and using a lighter base like the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue. Add a little concealer only where truly necessary.
