Spring Makeup Trends: Have you seen these yet?


Don’t you just love this time of year?

Other than the pollen wrecking my allergies, I love spring. Flowers are blooming, the weather is great, and it means summer is right around the corner!

It also happens to be a really busy time for Mary Kay Consultants. From proms to weddings to graduations —your customers will expect to have their makeup perfect for these occasions.

We know it can be tough to keep up with constantly changing makeup trends. But your customers are relying on you to keep them looking trendy this season.

Stressed out? Don’t be! We’re here to help!

Grab a pen, and take some notes. These are the spring trends you’ll want to know about this year.

Trend #1: All That Glitters is Gold


It feels like metallics never go out of style—although I have some clothing from 2001 that would beg to differ.

But gold, silver, copper, and chrome are back in a huge way this season! Worried you can’t pull off such bold colors? Well trust us, it’s easier than you think.

If you’re feeling up to it, a gold lipstick is a great option. It will give you the glitter you need to stand out in a crowd. But you don’t have to go quite so bold. Ease into it with the Mary Kay At Play Bold Fluid Eyeliner in Gold Metal, and your eyes will totally pop.

And if you’re feeling a little adventurous, add some glitter to your eyelids or anywhere around your eyes.

Trend #2: Keep It Natural


If you’ve been on social media recently, you’ve probably seen a lot of “no makeup challenges.” And we’re all aboard the natural beauty train!

Now, I know it sounds crazy, but it can sometimes take a lot of work to pull off the “no makeup” look. Hollywood makeup artists have talked for years about the hours it takes to make actresses look like they have no makeup on. Ironic, right?

The key to a natural look is complementing the skin tone. Since you won’t be using bright colors, you really need to play on the natural shades and hues that are already there. You’ll want to use neutral colors that don’t stand out too much, but still brighten up the face.

Your goal is to enhance what’s already there. Focus on evening out skin, applying light and soft eye makeup, and finish with a nude lip. Or, to spice it up, try a natural look with a red lip to really make that one feature stand out.

Whew! And all this time we thought “no makeup” really meant no makeup!

Trend #3: Super Bold Eyelashes


We spend a lot of time talking about eye makeup, and there’s a reason for that—eyes are the first thing people look at when they meet you, and the thing they’ll remember most.

And although eyeliner and eyeshadow are super important, they aren’t anything if you don’t have dramatic eyelashes to flutter.

Luckily, Mary Kay has us covered this season. The Mary Kay Lash Intensity MascaraⓇ was one of the most anticipated arrivals this year, and it’s finally here! YES!

This mascara is going to be your best friend this season—just make sure you save some for your customers!

Trend #4: Champagne Isn’t Just for Drinking


Champagne is more than just a tasty beverage to enjoy during a manicure, it’s one of the popular colors to use this spring.

And supermodel Gigi Hadid proves why this color works! It’s rich and beautiful, and let’s face it, it goes with pretty much anything.

Think of it this way, it takes forever trying to find the perfect eyeshadow to match with your (and your customer's) outfit. And goodness knows if you decide to change your apparel, there goes your matching eyeshadow.

But with champagne, you’ll almost always be safe. It’s subtle enough to match anything but still glamorous enough to have your customer feeling radiant and confident.


Trend #5: Make Nails a Work of Art


Whether it’s their prom or their wedding, your customers are going to want to stand out from the crowd. And who could blame them? Everyone wants to feel like a princess!

But nail art is a great way to get noticed!

So what if you aren’t an artist? How are you expected to create these detailed images? Trust us, it’s easier than you think!

If you aren’t feeling very artistic, try Mary Kay’s Into the Garden™ Nail Appliqu├ęs for some pre-made designs!

Want to do the work yourself? There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube that can help you get started. I might be the least artistic person on the planet (no, really. I think I am.), but even I have been able to master a few of these designs after watching some videos.


Now you’ll be ready to take on prom and wedding season like the pro that you are. Your customers are going to feel confident and beautiful thanks to Mary Kay’s amazing products and your expertise.
