Summer fever is hitting us hard. But just because it’s May doesn’t mean it’s time to give up on spring makeup just yet! Now is the perfect time to bring out those colorful eyeshadows and bright lipsticks you’ve been stashing away, waiting for just the right moment to apply. Below are some of our favorite bold, sultry, and overall gorgeous makeup looks and tutorials from YouTube beauty gurus that you can use to create your signature makeup look this spring.
Beauty Guru: Jaclyn Hill
Why we love it: Aqua eyes were all the runway rage at this year’s New York Fashion Week, and we guarantee this trend is here to stay! Blue and green-toned eyeshadows look great with any hair and eye color, plus Jaclyn breaks down each step so that achieving a flawless finish is almost effortless. If you’re wanting to make a beautifully bold statement this spring without looking tacky, this one won’t disappoint. Just be sure to always pair this look with a nude lip, so as not to distract from or clash with your eye makeup.
Beauty Guru: Lauren Curtis
Why we love it: What shouts “spring” more than a bold lip? No matter if you’re new to makeup or have been applying it for years, you’ll love how simple, quick, and easy this makeup is to achieve. Not only that, but you can switch out Lauren’s lipstick with any red, pink, orange, or neutral shade, making it possible change your whole look in seconds. Our personal favorite? Get instant glam with this pink coral lipstick, perfect for any skin tone!
Beauty Guru: Stephanie Ledda
Why we love it: With rose gold hues and a dewy finish, this tutorial provides the perfect combination of natural elegance and spring glam for any night out. And did we mention it’s just as affordable as it is stunning? This look was created using only drugstore products, proving you don’t need to break the bank for a flawless finish.
Beauty Guru: Alexandrea Garza
Why we love it: This isn’t your typical smokey eye. When it comes to spring style, it almost seems natural to stray from darker eyeshadows. However, you shouldn’t be afraid to play around with colorful smokey shades that complement your skin and eye color. Go boho this spring with beautiful purple shadows, bronzed skin, and mauve brown lips. Then, pair this look with textured, beachy waves, which Alexandrea also demonstrates in this tutorial, to create extra drama.
Beauty Guru: Casey Holmes
Why we love it: We love the current trend of pairing minimal eye shadow with bold lashes to give the eye a seamless doe-eyed effect. This tutorial uses both high-end and drugstore products to achieve a radiant bronze glow, the appearance of bigger eyes, and long-lasting heat proof coverage. In other words, this look ideal for any occasion where you’ll spend most of the day outside or don’t have much time to touch-up your makeup throughout the day.
