Ready to refresh your makeup bag? The beauty trends for Spring 2014 are all about colour, texture and letting your skin shine. Gone are last season’s moody berry shades, deep lips and velvet skin finishes. For Spring 2014, the top beauty trends include popsicle-orange lips, eyeshadows in every pastel shade under the sun and a whole lotta love for gold pigments. For those less inclined to pile on the product, good news: the no makeup makeup look is also trending this season. At Alexander Wang just four products were used backstage, with makeup artist Diane Kendal saying that it was “all about raw beauty.” Hair too gets the no makeup—er, no heat tools—treatment, with natural textures, centre parts and simple, low ponytails all making the list of our top spring beauty trends.
But back the colour—and the cosmetics that make them possible! “Pink is too sweet, too baby doll. Red is too pretty. It had to be a cool-girl colour,” said makeup artist Gucci Westman of the bright orange matte lip she created at Rag & Bone. If you can only buy one new lipstick this spring, make it orange: the zesty hue was also spotted at DKNY, John Galliano and Meadham Kirchoff, among others. As for pastels, spring beauty trends have been long associated with saccharine colours and for 2014 it proves to be quite a versatile one. Ranging from romantic (at Rochas, Suno and Burberry Prorsum) to futuristic (at Prabal Gurung, Giorgio Armani and Fendi) there’s an almost endless number of ways to wear pastel makeup shades. Finally, gold. If its everlasting popularity as a makeup shade is any indication, this precious metal’s desirability has no limits. Still, a little of its brilliance goes a long way. While painting your eyebrows gold à la Christian Dior, isn’t for everyone, Jason Wu and Gucci offer some more everyday-appropriate takes on this spring beauty trend. Ready to get inspired?
