Warmer temps and bright colors will soon be in the air. Spring will be all about adventure at the makeup counter and putting vibrant colors on your face. The shelves will be filled with beautiful vivid products. Take advantage of these fantastic palettes.

CHOOSE YOUR TARGET

There are many ways to apply daring shades without going overboard. Whether you’re a lipstick gal or you tend to lean toward shadows and liners, you’re covered.

BE BOLD

Go ahead, pick your favorite color – or one that will flatter your skin tone – and go with it. Makeup should be fun and expressive, so be sure to utilize the wide array of bold, eye-popping shades that are at your fingertips.

MATCH YOUR LIPS TO LINER (LOOK 1 is photographed above)

Lipstick can add the pop of color needed to complete your look. Pick a matching lipstick and liner. Make sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturized, then apply the lip liner. Draw a thin line along the edge of your lips starting at the center of your upper lip, working outward. Use a lip brush and carefully fill in your lips with lipstick. Add gloss for maximum shine.

LIQUID GOLD (LOOK 2)

Add a dab of shadow to a shadow brush, tapping the excess off on the edge of the shadow container. Apply to eyelid. Next, apply eye pencil in a complementary color to the shade of your upper lid, starting at the outer corner and slowly lining to the inner corner.

SHADOW DOES DOUBLE DUTY (LOOK 3)

Eye shadow doubles as a vibrant eyeliner. Grab an angled brush and dip it in water. Blot the excess water onto a dry paper towel until the brush is damp. Add to a touch of eye shadow to the damp brush and apply like it’s liquid eyeliner.
