These Are The Beauty Trends You'll Actually Want To Try This Season
When you notice the sea of puffer coats begin to ebb and the moody plum lipsticks gradually brighten to coral, you know spring is nearby. And while winter tends to be prime time for major skin care, spring is all about color and expression. Swiping on lavender eyeshadow is the beauty equivalent of wearing a dress without tights for the first time in months.
So, unsurprisingly, there’s a blossoming of new beauty trends just waiting for you to try. But as dazzling as glitter lips and glossy lids look in photos, not all trends are the most practical to wear on the reg. Ones that are? Dewy skin, defined lashes, and unexpected tones. We’ve teamed up with Revlon to curate these beauty trends, the ones you’ll actually want to wear — and to recommend the best products for recreating them. You’ll be so inspired by these looks, you might even emerge from couch hibernation to wear them (gasp) outside.
Here's a good case for all-over neutrals if we ever saw one. The trend, seen here on beauty blogger Jasmine Rose, is subtle, pretty, and best of all, foolproof. Just opt for rich formulas, like the glossy Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tint in Fancy Rose and the velvety Revlon ColorStay Crème Eye Shadow in Cognac. The mix of finishes will keep your nude tones looking vibrant rather than washed out.
Even if you can't manage to keep a succulent alive, you can still get in on spring blooms — sort of. A floral-inspired palette, spotted here on makeup artist and model Lauren O'Leary, is romantic and impossible to screw up. Anything from rose to lilac counts, which you can find in Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in HD Devotion and Revlon ColorStay Looks Book Eye shadow Palette in Enigma. For a soft effect, keep the tint on your lids sheer.
If brushes and blending aren't your thing, add definition to your eyes with liquid liner and volumizing mascara. The look, seen here on model and makeup artist Ilianna Ayala, has just enough oomph — and it won't wear off throughout the day. Get that super sharp line with Revlon ColorStay Exactify Liquid Liner in Intense Black, and follow it up with a couple coats of Revlon Volumazing Mascara, because mascara... always.
Terra Cotta Trance
It's official: Terra cotta is one of the colors of the season. For day, start by gliding a matte shade on your lips, like Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse in Sub-Saharan. Then for night, build on the look with a metallic, rosewood-y shadow on your lids. Try Revlon Crystal Aura Putty Powder Eye Beam in Mesmerized, which is a rich, coppery-red tone that you'll still want to wear come September.
Bright, luminous skin is a trend we predict isn't going anywhere anytime soon (just look at content creator and curl guru Coral Rosado's glow). And a formula like Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation makes it easy to recreate. Plus, it moisturizes and protects skin from aggressors like pollutants and blue light while creating a beautiful finish.
