After months of dry and cold winter weather (and skin), it’s a breath of fresh air to switch to spring and play with colour in your makeup. Our Instagram and Pinterest feeds are blowing up with pastels and dewy blush, so we’ve gathered the best looks that any skill level can try to get your makeup routine spring ready!
Fresh Dewy Skin
Hydrate hydrate hydrate! It’s so important to keep moisture locked in for all-day radiance, bounce and glow. Pair your favourite moisturizer and foundation together for soft dewy coverage and a “fresh-faced” look.
Our favourite trend? A fluffy brow and bright creamy blush+ highlight combo! Liquid products will be a dry skin's BFF!
Just as important, taking your makeup off at the end of the day and replenishing your skincare to marinate overnight. Our pro tip - use soft reusable makeup pads, like our Reuse Me Cotton Pads to gently remove makeup and cleanse without irritation for a soft glow.

Playing With Colour
Pastels are taking over the red carpet during awards season, as well as on social media. Shades of blue, lavender and pink are everlasting and always seem to (for lack of a better word), ‘bloom’ year after year in makeup and fashion trends.
By using a good eyeshadow primer, these pastel pigments will pop and be a refreshing splash of colour. Another great way to participate in this trend is with colorful gel liners - add some to your inner corner pop or try your hand at graphic liner.
Lashes For Days
False lashes are a great way to elevate your makeup look (biased opinion from us!) Whether you’re a pro looking for a big and bold lash like Poker Face, or someone slightly intimidated by lashes and wanting something on the more natural side, like plant-based Second Nature or effortless Would I Lie?, we've got you covered on this one!
Our pick for the season - a half lash or ¾ lash to add subtle flare to your look! Velour’s Effortless Lashes are a no-trim ¾ lash that offer easy application to newbies for a trendy half lash look. These half lashes are also perfect additions to any natural spring look.
No Makeup Makeup
The clean beauty and no makeup makeup look is still a hot trend for spring/summer. Add a lengthening and strengthening lash serum to your skincare routine to keep your natural lashes hydrated and healthy naturally. And for some extra length, try a Tubing mascara (the natural girl’s BFF). It wraps the lash to add length and dimension, while also protecting the lash. Plus, it’s smudge free, so it’s an excellent addition to your dewy skin makeup look.
