Fun, wearable looks for everyday

With spring finally here, it's time to put away the plums and maroons and make room for the magentas and teals!
The spring/summer looks are filled with so many lively and bright hair and makeup ideas. There is everything from black grungy lower lash liner to electric lime and indigo on water lines. We also have MEGA-lashes, petal pink hair, pastels everywhere, and a rainbow of pink lips.
Of all the different looks and colors to pick from here are my favorites that can go from the catwalk to the sidewalk:
Bright Eyeliner — Blue and green eyeliner is so much fun for spring and summer, and it's a great way to add a small pop of color to any outfit! The easiest way to wear this look is with a nude eye, a little bronzer and light pink lips. You want your eyes to be the focus so keep everything else soft. My new favorite eyeliner is Youngblood Gel Eyeliner in Midnight Sea. It's a vibrant blue that goes with every eye color and skin tone.
Colored Hair — Wisps of pastel and neon hair are hot right now, and with all the new temporary hair colors out there, it no longer has to be a (semi) permanent commitment. Color Rubs are the quickest way to shocking pink tips or a soft lavender strand just for the day. The one I love for the summer is Color Rub in Fuchsia. Add it to a few pieces of your ponytail for the perfect amount of fun and chic.
Pink Lips — With the wide array of pinks that are hot right now, finding the right one(s) should be lots of fun! If you like a nude lip, switch it up to a soft shell pink like Smashbox's Afterglow Lipgloss. For a daytime look with a little more color, go for sweet rosy pink pout. Try Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural in Iridescent Strawberry (these lips look great with big, fringy lashes and soft nude cheeks). If you embrace bold color, magentas were made for you! Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick in Exotic will give you the vibrant look you're going for. Your new statement lips look great with a swipe of black liner, full lashes and bronzer.
Have fun with your new spring looks!
