Spring always gives an excitement for the opportunity for a fresh start. For many, the end of winter means a new wardrobe and a new beauty regime. But what spring beauty products can we expect? Whether it’s sunshine-induced happiness, a hopeful end to a years-long pandemic, or the influence of fashion shows and TV shows, it seems the beauty of this spring will be defined by effortless, nostalgic fun. From textured hair to glossy pouts, beauty experts walk us through the beauty product trends to consider this season.
Nothing screams warm weather like the re-emergence of skin tones, weightless foundations and tinted moisturizers. Jen Tioseco, the makeup pro whose work can be seen on Camila Mendes and Madelaine Petsch, calls it “radiant skin but with some coverage.” She and celebrity makeup artist Allan Avendano are fans of Rose Inc’s Luminous Skin Tint, which Rose Inc says “gives you a nice luminous finish and evens skin tone but looks like nothing on your skin.” Otherwise, he’s a fan of Tower 28’s Sunny Days Tinted Sunscreen for a lightweight glow.
“The undone texture has been all the rage for a while now, but [I’m] also see a more curly and bouncy modern take on Julia Roberts’ texture,” says the professional hairstylist Kiley Fitzgerald looks that will reflect the fun and flirty vibe of this season. “Maybe not as high as in the 80s, but definitely more curls.” Enhance your texture with texturizing sprays from Paul Mitchell or Oribe for all-day volume and hold, even for fine, flat hair.
Smooth and silky skin
As hemlines get shorter and days get longer, skin is definitely in style. Enhance your body care routine with nourishing and exfoliating formulas that will leave you feeling silky smooth all over. Cleanse and eliminate dull skin in the shower with Tula’s 3-in-1 Polish, or massage in with Tata Harper’s Redefining Body Balm after shower to hydrate and minimize the look of stretch marks.
“Glossy lips with a glossier effect will look great,” says Sesnek. “Hues ranging from natural nude to Candy Apple red will be everywhere. I think it also pairs beautifully with stronger blush and more transparent skin. Pat McGrath’s Lust Lip Gloss or Dior’s Lip Maximizer will surely perfect that glossy pout.
Modern Classic Press-Ons
“In the spring, I tend to bring out soft tones like nudes and pastels,” says the celebrity makeup artist and nail tech. Lysette Castellanos. “I love a deconstructed French with a sheer lilac and blush tone. Just a swipe of color and a matte or shimmer finish. To get the look without spending hours in the nail salon, consider pops for a nail change Quick and easy.Kiss’ Bare But Better press-ons offer a natural-looking nude, while Chillhouse’s Chill Tips in Going to the Barre offers a cool-girl version of this timeless French manicure.
“I think the 90s/early 2000s hair trend will continue with sculptural buns, concept coloring with metallic accents and style,” says the professional hairstylist Iggy Rosales. “But I think we’re going to start seeing a lot of Pamela Anderson’s tousled hair that’s big and sexy, instead of the super smooth straight hair that we’ve seen a lot.” To achieve this, she relies on hair extensions to change her look without commitment. Hidden Crown’s clips are her favorite because “they’re so quick and easy to install” and “give the illusion of full-bodied hair.” To add volume to natural hair, Rosales loves Bed Head’s Thickening Spray. Her advice is to dry it on wet hair, then style it to maintain the volume all day.
celebrity makeup artist Robert Sesnek predicts bright, bold blush in cream or powder formulas for a sun-kissed look that pairs well with lightweight foundations. “I think this Spring/Summer will be all about blush with brighter shades ranging from coral to bronzed undertones,” he says.
Christine Cherbonnier also expects color washes, but with multi-use products that offer the freedom to apply wherever you want. Think Freck’s Cheekslime or Jones Road’s Miracle Balm which offers versatile pigments for cheeks, lips and eyes. “I’m ditching my bronzers and contours this season for vibrant color on eyes and lips, leaving skin natural and free, and only accentuating natural features like freckles, skin blush and highlights. “, says Cherbonnier.
Whether you’re experimenting with a hair color, trying out a new cut, or hoping to grow out your mane, it seems like everyone is focusing on healthier hair more than ever. While K18’s leave-in hair mask is known to reverse damage after just one treatment, Fitzgerald recently became a fan of Sisley Paris The Hair Protective Fluid. She notes that “this product forms a protective film that shields the hair from the harmful effects of the sun, sea and pool water.”
Expect eyeliner to make a bolder statement this spring. Per Sesnek, “Graphic eyeliner in shades of black, neon and pastels and everything in between. Pencil, cream and liquid formulas can all be used for this look. Choose between liners from Pat McGrath and Fenty Beauty for ultra-pigmented options in a range of high-impact shades.
Firm and hydrated skin
On the skin care side, Dr. Corey L. Hartmanfounder of Skin wellness Dermatology in Birmingham, Alabama, says that as people seek to show their faces without a mask, he sees two trends in his practice: even hydration and diminished wrinkles. In addition to the ever-trendy sunscreen, he says to look for “lightweight serums packed with hydrating ingredients like glycerin, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants are going to be huge this spring.”
Hartman recommends EltaMD’s UV Clear formula as a preventative measure for even skin, along with “the benefits of niacinamide to reduce past signs of sun damage like dark spots, plus sun protection to prevent new ones.” sun damage”. Next, he explains that one of the main culprits of fine lines and wrinkles is inflammation, or daily low-grade inflammation from stress, pollution, and sun exposure. To combat this, he would turn to Heraux Molecular Anti-Inflammatory Serum to protect the skin from these external stressors.
High Tech Supplements
The days of high-tech beauty gadgets being reserved for in-office treatments and celebrities are so long. Now anyone can achieve similar results at home to achieve their beauty goals. There’s the droplet micro-infusion device that works to deliver active ingredients directly into the skin through an ultra-fine mist meant to go deeper than its topical counterparts. Or, there are LED light therapy treatments like Solawave that easily reduce the appearance of fine lines, blemishes, and dark spots.
celebrity nail artists Mo Qin and Betina Goldstein agree that there will be an increased focus on strong, healthy nails this spring. Honestly, who wants to waste time or money for a perfect manicure on weak and brittle nails? Goldstein loves L’Occitane’s Shea Infused Oil because “it’s perfect for on the go, toss it in your pocket or bag and reapply throughout the day keeping your nails and cuticles hydrated.” Alternatively, consider CND Sun Oil, which Qin says “keeps your nails and cuticles hydrated and conditioned all the time.”
Sequins all over
According to Avendano, we shouldn’t shy away from a little sparkle in the eye this spring, a trend we’ve seen in Euphoria and on the spring 2022 runways. “It creates such a metallic impact that gets a lot of attention,” he says of his coveted Danessa Myricks Beauty Infinite Chrome Flakes, which he says can be used on bare skin, on the body or over eyeshadow. You can’t go wrong with Hourglass’ Scattered Light Glitter.
