Creamy textures are the hottest makeup trend for spring according to Tini Beauty founder Michelle Toma Olson. “Expect to see creamier more velvety textures on the lips and shimmery creamy textures on the eyes. Look to see a retro trends make a comeback.”
To help you get gorgeous and get in on the hottest spring trends, we’ve rounded up the best beauty products with amazing makeup tips to help you achieve an effortless, fresh-faced look this season.
Check it out:
Prestige Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner ($9.50) The top quality brand has the best selection of liquid ink eyeliners in a lot of cool colors like Tattoo in the Against All Odds series of the Total Intensity collection. It is extremely fine, precise, and long lasting. If you fear using eyeliners because of messing up, these tools will make you feel like a pro.
Be Fierce by Tata Harper Lip Treatment ($24). Luscious nudes and mirror-like glosses are in this spring but before applying them, a bit of lip repair will bring them out better. This product is a luxurious sheer antioxidant and moisturizing lip treatment to revitalize post-winter lips. It contains Date Palm extract to fight skin damage and flush away toxins, concentrated Oil of Lavender, Comfrey, Chamomile and Calendula.
DeVita Lip Volumizer ($22.95). If winter has left your lips not only dry but slim, I recommend this product for a little lip plumbing that uses a peptide technology that is plant- based with Shear Butter, Coconut, and Avocado Oil to enhance the volume and reduce creases.
DeVita Lipstick Nude ($20.36). Nude remains a strong trend in spring but with variations of Pearl or Peach. 100% Vegan and made of flower wax, the nude pearl Frost tone is perfect to compliment spring’s neutrals and pastels.
Jane Iredale PureGloss in Bellini ($24). This sheer nude shade is ideal for a barely there look and for layering over lipsticks and stains.
Prestige Cosmetics Mineral Lip Gloss in Soft Peach ($7.25). Peach is the color of spring according to NYC’s Butterfly Studio Salon’s glam expert Francesca Roman and so is Magenta. This gloss creates a gentle non-sticky moist velvety Peach lip just right for spring.
Avon’s Shine Attract Lipstick Collection ($9). Check out these glosses for new Pinks and Magentas perfect for a spring of juicy lips. The lipsticks glide like a charm with Vitamin E protection.
DeVita Absolutely Blushed ($19.95). Among blushes, nothing evokes spring quite like DeVita’s Triple milled line with shades like Tender Blush infused with Japanese Green Tea extract, Hyaluronic Acid and ACTIValoe . Minerals blend perfectly with the skin leaving a translucent, light finish that is natural and subtle.
Kryolan’s Metallique Eye Makeup Palette ($34.10). Kelly Thompson the lead make up artist for Kryolan at the Johanna Mastroiani Show during New York’s Fashion Week calls for strong, bold make up to match the trend in Spring 2013 for stripes, cut outs, leather accents and black and white prints: Go for sheer metallics, neutrals, shimmery lips and light-catching cheek color.
This palette has an eye shadow cream with a sheer metallic sheen, loaded with Vitamin E so it feels smooth. She also recommends Deluxe Champagne or Elegant Gold for a subtle look and Volcanic Copper or Luminous Carmel for a bolder statement. These colors, she predicts, will be staples of a Glamour-packed spring. The Kryolan pigments are so concentrated, smooth, luscious, velvety and pure, it is easy to use and mix and has become my favorite eye make up kit.
Lashem’s Lash Gel Serum ($69.99). Finally don’t forget to work on your lashes and brows! Lashes are key for old Hollywood glamour. No amount of mascara will bring out your eyes if your eyelashes are on the verge of extinction. This product is exactly what you need o help in the regrowth of your eyelashes during your sleep. After 3 weeks, your lashes are longer and fuller. Clinically tested, 97% natural ingredients.
S.h.a.p.e.s. Brow Bar‘s Mineral Brow Powder ($10). Also don’t neglect your brows this spring, as they are essential to create an expressive retro look, I am thinking of Joan Fontaine in “Suspicion” by Hitchcock. This product contains vegetable dye and is uniquely formulated to provide an all-natural look and blend with your natural brow color. $10. Available at Shapes Brow Bars.

Bioré Makeup Removing Cotton Towelettes ($7.49). And at the end of the day, the new line of Biore’s Towelettes are a really convenient way to dissolve any dirt or makeup residue. The conditioning, non-irritating formula does not leave behind a greasy residue—meaning no rinse is required. Keep them in your bag for quick touch ups throughout the day. Alcohol free, dermatologically tested, made out of 100% renewable resources.
