7 Low-Commitment Ways to Refresh Your Makeup This Spring

Orange Eye shadow

Ah, Emma. We can always count on her to keep us on our toes. Here she is making a strong case for bright orange eye shadow. And hey, if this Cheetos shade feels like a leap right now, start with a sheer, salmon-y pink and work your way up.

Coral and Blue Combo

Aka the ultimate spring (and summer) combo. Notice how the soft cool blue on Tracee’s lids plays off the bold pop of coral on her lips.

Cerulean Blue Eyeliner

Or, you could just use the blue as an accent around your eyes. Tip: Anchor it with a dark navy or black liner first, then trace a dash of blue just above it for a dramatic effect like Margot’s.

Violet Eye shadow

Calling all our brown-eyed girls: If you haven’t worn a pop of purple on your lids yet, we implore you to give it a whirl. From a soft lilac to a statement violet like Lily here, the shade can be as subtle or striking as you want it to be.

Pink Gloss and Mauve Shadow

And if you’re someone who typically wears a lot of color, try stripping it down like Miley here. A muted mauve shadow and slick of pink gloss is a good place to start.

Fuchsia Lipstick

Fact: hot pink lipstick will always put you in a better mood, and Laura Harrier is proof. Opt for one that has blue undertones to make even your teeth appear brighter.

Pink on Pink

Again, a spring refresh doesn’t have to be drastic. For some of us, that might just mean channeling Gina and adding some life back into to our faces after a long winter with pink blush and eye shadow.
