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.

The problem with really bright, neon lip colors is that they can make your teeth look REALLY yellow. Frustrated

Anything that's done repeatedly that bothers you after you've told them to stop is considered as bullying, which is almost a crime and has serious consequences. I'd tell someone if I were you. Doing it once is okay, but doing it more than once after being asked to stop is serious. and also, if you're smart then don't ever complain. Smartness will get you a good future, being cool won't

But if they make you feel like #### then you shouldn't be friends with these people. If it really bothers you then it's a toxic relationship. If you just find in mildly annoying and can deal with it then continue being friends with them. But if it really bothers you and they won't stop even when you ask them to stop then they're not your real friends. You deserve friends that respect you.
