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.

So I have been best friends with this girl for six years, after Halloween she has not called me, answered my calls, or come over to my house (we live close to each other and go over to our houses all the time). I don't know why she hasn't talked to me and shes the type of person if you did something to make her mad she would tell you.  I don't want to call her (it may seem needy) but I have a bunch of her stuff at my house and I really just don't want them there anymore but I don't want to call her have a huge fight and avoid each other ( which would be really hard) forever.

This is really true and sad... Many teens, have a problem with this because of society. This post helps. I have had problem with suicide and bullying. Ive felt like I should just end it because I have no point to be here because I'm being told I'm worthless, to fat, to dumb, not pretty enough, all tons of lies and i got to the point that i believe them. I'm an outsider in my school. It fells like a lot of people leave me.  I fell pain a lot. and There is bullying going on in my school. Life fell mean less a lot. I have to remind myself that I do have a point and that people do love me.  I know know I do have a reason to live and so do you guys so  Don't ruin you're life. You're to young.  You're to worthy. The bully are just jealous of you. Don't self harm tonight. Don't comment suicide. You all are worth A lot I promise. People love you. Don't worry about hatters. The hatter are gonna hate but lovers are there to help you trough the pain and if you did comment suicide imagine how they'd fell. Thanks for posting this it really helped me and really could've saved a life:) :) Bullies are just having problems themselves remember that!!!! Stay strong everyone!!!

It feels like no one cares about me at school. I really can't trust anybody either. I started to quit eating at home and at school only eating snacks every now and then. I am also losing Weight. I used to get called fat and i wasn't even fat. I have been abused by people who say my butt is smexy and huge and it's not. I have even been slapped on by them. I tell my mom and dad that i've been called fat and my dad ignore's me and continues whatever he's doing. I'm getting to the point again where i'm losing my temper and emotions right on the spot. I can't be bipolar cause it has to run in the family and my mom says i don't have it. People get mad at me when i don't laugh at their jokes when they expect me too cause i really don't listen. But when i say something funny they roll their eyes and give me mean looks. I don't even want to be around people that much. I just want to be outside in the fresh air during school but it's high school so their's no outside time. I also fake smile's at people to make them happy. But i just hurt on the inside. I just want advice.  Hi there. I'm sure you have people who care about you at school, just sometimes it's hard to see it. Dear, you have to eat. I assure you, you're not fat. (smexy isn't necessarily a bad thing)  You have to understand, that people say things just because they can, or to make themselves feel better. Never give them that opportunity, just ignore them. When you're about to lose your temper, think of something that makes you really happy.  If you need someone to talk to, you have your guidance consular, trust me I have social anxiety, and reallly hate talking about my problems, I find it easier for me, to message them. It's their job to listen, but not only that, they really care for all of their students. Talking helps, believe me.

Things happen for a reason, normally to make others stronger. Trust me, nothing is worth taking your own life. If you need to talk I'm here, however I would suggest you talking to an adult.  Friends come and go. you have family, and if not, you have me, Trust me, it's not worth it. please, don't.
