Make Up: Must Have Products for Spring
Michela Marra | Friday March 10th 2017
Have you already had a look at the new makeup collections? We have and we’ve already scoped out this spring’s must have products. As usual, we like following the trends and mixing colors without necessarily following seasonal “rules.” For example, spring tends to call for pastel shades and light colors but we refuse to give up dark lipsticks or those with a metallic finish. Luckily, dear Pretty Birds, cosmetic brands know just how to tap into our tastes and give us the chance to truly play with colors when we want to update the contents of our beauty cases. What new products will you be adding to your beauty case? Read our suggestions!
Vice Liquid Lipstick by Urban Decay is a waterproof liquid lipstick with a new, very pigmented formula. Try the bolder shades like the metallic ones – blue is definitely the color of the year!
The Smoky amethyst Magnetic Color Shadow Quad by Gucci Beauty is a combination of eyeshadows that include a base color and highlighting shades (the lighter ones) as well as darker shades to create smokey eyes that are absolutely versatile.
Synchro skin glow foundation by Shiseido is synchronized with skin to ensure glow throughout the entire day. Thanks to its special formula which keeps track of your skin’s condition, it picks up on changes throughout the course of the day and adapts to these changes in order to guarantee perfect coverage. Also, it has a hydrating technology which provides a fresh, natural-looking complexion all day long.
The new Mini Marker and Swatch by Ciaté are nail polish brushes that allow for ultra-precise application and an impeccable finish in just one move. The tip ensures smudge-free results while the fast-drying formula is the perfect ally for those who are always on the go and need either a touch up or super quick manicure. What color to choose? Lady Luck red.
Marc Jacobs Beauty New Nudes in May Day is a delicate purple lipstick with a velvety shine. It has a gel formula and contains volumizing 3D agents, for lips that won’t go unnoticed.
Too Faced Sweet Peach is an 18-shade palette that goes from hues of peach pink to coral and all the way to purple. It has a succulent scent and is rich in peach antioxidants.
NARS Lipstick in Breaking Free is semi-matte coral lipstick. It contains a mixture of softening, antioxidant elements which hydrate, nourish and protect lips.
Paint Infaillible Stick Blush in 02 Tangerine Please by L’Oréal Paris sculpts cheekbones in a single move. Its ultra-sensory texture transforms itself from cream to powder for easy blending.
No-transfer Lipstick Effect Gloss by Sephora is a full-coverage, extremely long-holding liquid lipstick with a unique, mutable texture: it goes on creamy and becomes a light velvety veil that provides impeccable, long-wearing color. The shade we suggest trying is 20 White Iris.
L’Ombre Iridescente in 10 Silver Grey by Clarins is a “cream in powder” eyeshadow that either enhances the gaze with a pearlized veil during the day or renders it evening chic by playing with intensity and color. It is easy to apply and immediately provides luminous, even results.
Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Holiday Lip Balm is a balm that hydrates and colors lips giving them an ultra-shiny finish.
The Street And I Couture Palette Collector by Yves Saint Laurent comes in an urban packaging covered in graffiti and young, edgy tags and will help create urban style gazes. Pink and orange are combined in perfect harmony with colder colors to create a rebellious, irresistible gaze.
Retro Matte in Uniformly Fabulous by MAC Cosmetics is a liquid lipstick with a super matte finish. For those who want their lips to be the focal point of their look, purple-black is the must have color.
