by Carly Brown
With all the mild weather we’ve been having lately, it’s already starting to feel like spring. This season is all about retro beauty trends! Brighten up your look with these beauty tips for spring.
Dramatic Red Lips
As seen at: Jason Wu, Thakoon, and Anna Sui
The look: Red lips are universally flattering, and there’s an option for every skin tone. This look stands out well on its own, so you don’t need much more makeup.
Recommended products: Revlon Colorburst in Cherry Ice, CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Hot, and L’ Oréal Paris Colour Riche in British Red.
As seen at: Jason Wu, Bradley Mischka, and Marni
The look: A flick of liner gives a retro feel, but don’t feel obligated to stick to black. Designers are using bold colours like beige, grey, and coppery orange on the runway.
Recommended products: Almay Intense I-Colour Liquid Liner, Revlon ColorStay crème Gel Eye Liner, and CoverGirl LineBlast 24 Hour Eyeliner.
As seen at: Donna Karan, Nina Ricci, and Ralph Lauren
The look: Not just for the gym anymore, there are so many options that make this look totally high fashion. Ponytails looks great slicked back, high or low, this season.
Recommended products: Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light Weightless Conditioning Shake, and TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray
As seen at: Kenzo, Proenza Schouler, and Thakoon The look: Keep this look natural, not boyish and bushy. Strong brows really shadow a look, so don’t go heavy on the rest of your makeup. Recommended products: Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil, and Physicians Formula Fineline Brow Pencil
As seen at: Alexander Wang, Chanel, and BCBG
The look: This low-maintenance look is making big waves on the runway. While your hair is still wet, mix in mousse or gel.
Recommended products: Pantene Pro-V Flowing Body Mousse, and Dove Damage Therapy Shape & Lift Volumizing Gel with MicroMoisture Serum
All products are available at your local Shopper’s Drug Mart, or anywhere else cosmetics are sold.
