Spring Beauty Trends

This year’s spring beauty is for the brown girls


Hello beautiful readers! We’re here at a new week, and I’m back with more beauty tips. Though the groundhog is tripping with this whole spring things I’m stocked up and so ready to break out my spring looks.

From Dolce & Gabbana to Kate Spade, spring runway makeup was riddled with colorful looks, but each was missing just one things.  It seems like everyone is always fronting on the chocolate girls but, to me, spring’s hottest looks screamed “more melanin.” So ebony Queens, this post is ALL for you honey boo boo.  Turn up this Spring with statement making pigments hot off the runway.

Back from the 80s + more chic than ever blue shadow is the hottest trend this spring. From teal to navy, IT girls everywhere are taking this trend and making it their own. [Style tip:] Blue can be a little dramatic so try easing into this trend with blue liquid liner.  Liquid liner will allow you to get a sleek, skinny line or a thick blue cat eye.

Red lips will forever be classic.  A candy apple lip is the perfect contrast for darker skin and will make your smile pop from a mile away. [Style tip:] Rock red lips with a clean, fresh face.  This keeps your look subtle and allows your red lip to be the star.

Along with blue shadow, blush tones (pink and peach) + sparkle lids are all the rage.  These colors look light and meek on the runway girls, but you brown skin provides the prefect canvas for these colors to POP! [Style tip:] Wear only one color at a time. No need to over do it with this trend. Pick one color and apply it to your whole lid.

Gold lips are the ultimate piece de resistance.  Rock these at any event this spring and you’re guaranteed to turn heads. I’m really looking forward to this look on everyone this spring, but I know the dark skinned girls are gonna really shut it down. [Style tip] wear this look however the hell you want!!

    I love a pop of blue whether it’s liner or shadow. I’m glad people are letting go of the 80s faux pas element because color looks good on dark skin.

      Yes the blue is my favorite too. I’ve stocked up on some shadows and liners. I definitely think it looks amazing on dark skin. So elegant and chic
