Bright and Beautiful: 6 Spring Beauty Trends to Try

Spring is right around the corner and not only are we excited about warmer temps and fresh fashion statements, but we can’t wait to try out each one of the beauty trends below. Now the only question is: Which one shall we try first?

POPPY RED LIP

A red lip for spring? Sure, why not?! But not just any red will do; it’s a poppy red that is the shade this season. This fun color can glam up your full makeup look or add a pretty pop to your minimal, no-makeup fresh face. Either way, this color is a refreshing take on the classic red lip. Click here to find the perfect red shade for your pout.

BOLD BROWS

Don’t worry, ladies—pencil-thin brows are not coming back as a trend this spring (We hope they never do!). Bold, beautiful brows are here to stay! A big shout-out goes to designers like Fendi, who stuck with this classic look on the Spring 2019 runway.

So, just how can you transform your brows to stay on trend or give yourself a much-needed brow makeover? It’s simple, just visit a Lash Lounge near you and discover the options we have for brow services. Whether it’s a brow tint or microblading, we can give your brows a boost.

SUNKISSED CHEEKS

Don’t you love that natural spring and summer glow you get when you finally ditch the indoors for some precious sun? So do we! Give your cheeks that gently-kissed look by applying a rust shade of blush.

PINK PIGMENTS

Don’t be surprised when you see pink gracing eyelids and lips this spring. This timeless color adds such a youthful, fresh look when subtly applied. Giorgio Armani debuted new products for his Spring 2019 show and, in that collection, a plethora of pink! Swoon over these pretty palettes and how to wear them here!

LILAC EYESHADOW

Vibrant yet subtle, lilac eyeshadow should be your go-to spring eyeshadow shade this year! Why lilac? Well, it’s colorful enough to make your eyes pop, yet can still be worn subtly if your heart desires. Whether you choose more of a matte lilac shadow or one with a shimmer, we’re certain you and your lovely lilac eyes will make a statement wherever you go! Want to see just how fabulous this color is?

RAINBOW MANIS

Spring beauty wouldn’t be complete without pretty nails, right, ladies? In case you haven’t seen the latest manicure trend, we’ll fill you in with these two powerful words: rainbow nails. Yes, we did say “rainbow”! This colorful manicure has been seen all over social media over the past couple of months. Just picture it: a different color (usually pastels) on each nail! Want to see for yourself? Check it out here. And then tell us: Will you give it a try?

Best Beauty Looks from the AMA’s (And How You…

If you watched the American Music Awards last week, then you not only saw some impressive performances and fashion statements, but you also saw some flawless makeup and gorgeous lashes. We loved many of the super glamorous looks we saw and we’re sharing some of the best beauty looks from the AMA’s with you, plus how YOU can get the same looks . . . you’re welcome!


Taylor Swift

Taylor’s Look:

  • Metallic eye shadow
  • Winged eyeliner
  • Feathery lashes
  • A soft nude lip

Get Her Look:

  • For the eye shadow, we love the sultry shadow palette from Sephora which includes a silver metallic shade like Taylor wore, plus 13 more shades.
  • To get that perfect winged liner look, Maybelline‘s felt-tip liquid eyeliner glides on smooth for precise control.
  • For the lashes, a full set of Volume Lash Extensions will have your lashes looking just like Taylor’s!
  • Then for the lips, NARS Honolulu Honey is the perfect blend of natural beige with a satin finish. 

Ciara

Ciara’s Look:

  • Gold, shimmery eyes
  • Lifted lashes
  • Nude glossed lips

Get Her Look:

  • Bobbi Brown’s shimmer wash eye shadow in ‘champagne’ is the perfect shade to highlight and illuminate the eyes like we see on Ciara.
  • Her lashes looked beautifully natural with a lovely lift and curl. You can get this same classic look with a simple Lash Lift Perm which will define and curl your lashes seamlessly in one treatment. (Note: A lash lift perm is not available in New Jersey.)
  • Try Lancome’s L’Absolu Lacquer Gloss in Beige Aura to add the same nude glossy look to your lips.

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa’s Look:

  • Nude matte lip
  • Full, flared lashes
  • Arched brows

Get Her Look:

  • To get lips like Vanessa, try this matte lipstick from Ulta by Anastasia Beverly Hills and go for the color, Soft Touch.
  • Recreate her lash look by getting a full set of our Volume Lash Extensions. Volume lashes offer incredible fullness with 2 or more of our lightest lash extensions applied to 1 natural eyelash.
  • To get your brows looking like Vanessa’s, get them threaded. Eyebrow threading is an innovative option for brow shaping and hair removal. It also has many benefits over waxing and plucking and can give you this same sexy arched look.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer’s Look:

  • Contoured face
  • Super dark, warm smokey eyes
  • Volume lashes

Get Her Look:

  • To conquer this contoured look, try the ‘Step-by-Step Contour Kit’ by Smashbox.
  • Get the same sultry smokey eye with warm tones by using the Makeup Atelier Eye Shadow Palette by Beautylish.
  • A full set of Volume Eyelash Extensions will complete the look and have you looking just as fab as JLo herself!

Dua Lipa

Dua’s Look:

  • Shades of brown on her lips and eyes
  • Full lashes on the top and bottom
  • Bold brows (that are noticeably a perfect match to her hair color.)

Get Her Look:

  • Brown shades are all the rage this season and you can get this same edgy yet feminine look on your lips with Yves Saint Laurent’s ROUGE PUR COUTURE Lipstick with shade 53 Beige Promenade from Sephora. Continue the brown tones on the eyes by using a bronze shade like MAC’s Charcoal Brown eye shadow.
  • A full lash line on the top AND bottom can be achieved by getting Lash Extensions -and yes, you can even get lash extensions on your lower lid. This will open up your eyes and brighten your face even more than just having lash extensions on the top!
  • For the same bold brow look as Dua, get a simple brow tint. This service is ideal for those who want to darken their brows or simply give them a bolder look. And it also saves you the hassle of filling in your brows – which is a huge time saver! (Note: Lash tinting is available at many Lash Lounge locations, but not in the following states: New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts or California.)

10 Facts About Brow Tinting and Threading You May…

If your brows are in need of a makeover, brow tinting and threading can do wonders! See below for 10 facts about these two fabulous services that you may or may not know.

Eyebrow Threading

  1. The results from eyebrow threading lasts longer than plucking or waxing. Plucking lasts 2–4 weeks, waxing lasts 3–6 weeks and eyebrow threading (wait for it . . . ) can last up to 8 weeks!
  2. Threading removes an entire row of hairs at a time, which will give your brows a more precise shape
  3. If you have ever experienced ingrown hairs after plucking, you will not have to worry about that happening with threading.
  4. Threading is a much faster process than waxing or plucking.
  5. Brow threading will not irritate your skin like waxing often can.

Eyebrow Tinting

  1. Brow tinting is a service that doesn’t involve hair removal but uses a semi-permanent dye to enhance the color, shape, and thickness of your brows.
  2. Tinting is the perfect way to add a color boost to your brows (and even your lashes) and is ideal for those with light hair.
  3. A brow tint can widen your arches and elongate your eyebrows, which will give your brows a more defined, beautiful look.
  4. If you have naturally fine brows or you over-plucked back in the day like many of us did (ooops!) a brow tint can help by boosting the volume of your eyebrows.
  5. Even if your eyebrows are already dark, a tint can grab those peach-fuzz hairs and fill in the shape of your brows. You may discover you have hairs you didn’t know were there!
