Spring Make-Up Tips 2013

Apr 14, 2013

It's time to get into the spring of things and inject a new season twist into your make-up routine! This spring it's all about experimenting with bold lips, eyes and hair. So spice up your beauty regimen with our easy tips and add a new look to your rotation this spring!

Look-At-Me Eyes

Get the fresh, wide-eyed look by trading in your black or brown eyeliner for a metallic bronze, silver, purple or a rich blue shade! A fresh twist on traditional eyeliner shades, colored eyeliner makes the whites of your eyes stand out even more. Draw the line close to your lashline and then take a smudger or cotton q-tip and smudge it a bit to make it look softer. If you're not into eyeliner, choose one shade of eyeshadow and apply it all over your lids!

Bright Lips

A big trend for this spring is super bright rosebud lips! We're talking eye-popping, vibrant bright shades of pink, orange, bright red. If you don't like lipstick, go for an electric neon shade of lipgloss and dab it on. When you're going bright on the lips keep the rest of your face simple. Don't go bold on both eyes and lips - you want one of them to stand out, not compete for attention.

Get Your Glow On

Blend highlighter on your best assets for an effortless glowy look this spring. Choose a shade that goes with your skin - warm golden tones for yellow-toned skin, or cool pink tones for paler skins. Lightly apply along your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose. If you prefer a more creamy consistency, look for a cream highlighter and dab a tiny bit on cheekbones and down bridge of nose but make sure you blend it in!

Soft Touchable Hair

Deep condition your hair once a week to make it feel soft and moisturised. Take a cue from your favorite celebs and rock a super cool side braid. Make it look a little bit undone and gently tug on a few pieces here and there to loosen up the look.

Blush On

Nothing makes you look more vibrant than looking like you have a natural flush on your cheeks. Luckily you can easily fake this by applying a blush to the apples of your cheeks and blending it thoroughly. Pinch your cheeks to find your natural flush colour. Try a gel or cream blush if you have skin that isn't too dry or oily.

Bronzer Glow

Enhance healthy-looking skin by adding a touch of bronzer to your complexion. Dust bronzer that's one shade lighter than your natural skin tone lightly all over your face. Don't go overboard, less is more for a natural look. Blend a little bit down your neck so it looks even more believable! The most common bronzer mistake is when too much is applied so make sure you put bronzerin in a well-lit room with some natural daylight if possible.

Spring Nails

There is no easier way to freshen up your beauty regimen for spring than by trying some juicy new nail polish! We just love spring shades - pastels, bright watermelon shades, cool metallics and neon shades - the sky's the limit! Get creative and try some spring nail art.

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!

I have this friend who has been my friend for 6 years. And she is so RUDE. She says mean things about me and MY MOTHER. Seriously she says really awful things about my mom like this: "Her IQ is high? Oh she must have took the IDIOT test." And tells me "Eww you wear Disney Princess shirts? Eww you are so messed up!" She always acts better than me whether we are alone or with people. She tries to make people hate me and she tries to act mature and she alway tells me "You should respect your mom and do what she tells you" She is awful. I wanna tell her she is mean and I dont wanna be friends. But I can`t! Its hard to do that when you know someone for 7 years. HELP!
