The nippiest days are past, the pale skin and purple eyeshadow feels done, and we’re ready to greet the sun with a fresh and glowing natural makeup! We’ve gathered the top international makeup trends and added a dash of New Zealand style to bring you our makeup tips for spring 2019 and the beautiful all-natural cosmetics that will let you create your look – Plus you can win an amazing natural makeup pack from Eco Minerals!
A touch of highlighter bestows glow and sparkle to your complexion, enhancing the natural angles of your face, making lips look fuller (a dot blended onto the cupids bow), cheeks higher (cheekbone lights) and eyes brighter (browbone and the inner corner of your eyelid.) Eco Minerals highlighter creme and Tailor’s sassy glow pots will give you just the right luminosity.
There’s no more perfect hue for a fresh faced spring look! Choose the pink that suits your natural skintones (warmer or cooler) and experiment with applying eyeshadow to the lid, the browbone or the outer edges of your eye to find the look that suits you. A general rule is darker nearer, lighter further out but you do you! Pink eyeshadow makes dark eyelashes stand out well too.
A pop of lip colour
Spring is not the time for heavy matte lips or overdone liner – we’re all about the sweet stain of Ere Perez’s Carrot Pot colours, Beetroot Lip & Cheek Stain, Luk Beautifood or Inika Organic’s Lip & Cheek Cream for a dewy, fresh lip that looks incredibly natural and tempting. Lippy is a great way to protect your lips from drying spring winds too!
Striking metallic touches
A metallic inner eye is a huge hit and helps your eyes stand out. Create it using the glittering Eco Minerals highlighter, Safari Gold, a Tailor Glow Pot, Industry silver shadow from Inika Organic or their glittering Gold Khaki eyeliner. You can add metallic colour in a line along the outside edge of your lower lashes for extra effect.
Blusher & bronzer
Highlight along the cheekbone or accent under it with blush or bronzer – or mix the two – to create a touch of rosy gold colour that will welcome the warmer spring air. A blush and a bronzer can be used in similar ways, and depending on your skin tone you may prefer one over the other, or both as a contouring move. Although sunscreen is still a must as the days warm, mineral blushers and bronzers do provide an extra layer of sun protection by leaving a layer of powder on your skin.
Golden skin tones
We’re talking super natural and super lovely. Regardless of your natural skin tone, it’s likely to be a little paler than usual unless you were lucky enough to holiday in the Pacific this winter! Eco Minerals makes adding warmer hues a breeze with a choice of Flawless Finish (matte) and Perfection Finish (fresh).
The final definition
Eyes are everything and bold bright blues and greens are en pointe! Add a bold sweep of Graphite, Emerald or Indigo Inika Organic eyeliner then layer mascara to finish, beginning by applying on the tops of your lashes, before sweeping up along the undersides to curl and separate.
