The 4 Beauty Trends To Try This Month
By Brittany Burhop Fallon, Beauty Director |
Spring is officially in full swing, which means it's time for a seasonal refresh. Here are our four favorite on-trend looks to wear now and the products you need to recreate them.
Trend: Pastel Polish
Spring’s newest shades are fresh, airy and feminine pastels with a modern spin that flatter your skin tone without washing you out. “Pastel nails work really work nicely for the spring season as a switch up from the dark nails we saw in the fall,” says Sandy Linter, makeup artist for Lancôme at Warren Tricomi Salon.
Product Pick: We love essie Nail Polish in Go Ginza ($9)—a soft, cherry blossom pink.
Trend: Minimalistic Beauty
One of the biggest beauty themes we saw on the runways at New York Fashion Week (the Marc Jacobs and Jason Wu shows especially) was “less is more.” Linter says this beloved “no-makeup makeup” trend is here to stay. “I think it's just a natural transition from the ‘done’ looks we’ve been seeing so much of during cooler months.” This season, put your radiant skin front and center for a fresh and pretty look.
Product Pick: Get flawless-looking skin and a supermodel-worthy glow with NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($43).
Trend: The Towel-Dried Hair Look
Slightly messy, towel-dried hair that embraces its natural texture is all the rage this season. Everyone wants that effortless beauty look that inspired the popular social media hashtag #iwokeuplikethis. “The ‘natural hair’ look can be polished and cool and recognized as style and nothing else,” says Linter.
Trend: Look-At-Me Lips
The one part of your look that you'll want to stand out? Bright, eye-catching lips. Try bold shades of pink, red and orange that really pop against your fresh facial look and act as the perfect accessory to pair with a crisp white blouse.
Product Pick: We can’t get enough of LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick in Vixen ($16)—a vibrant pink that instantly takes your look from drab to fab.
