BEAUTIFY: Get Your Glow On

Gone are the days of matte looks and heavy contoured faces. Say hello to Spring 2017… fresh, effortless looks emphasizing natural beauty. While reminiscent of the 80s add touches of whimsical, romance, and fun, according to our favorite beauty expert Ana Bribiesca.

SO NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL
A clean, fresh and bare-faced look with air-dried hair dominated the 2007 Spring/Summer runways. This look spotlights natural beauty and embraces dewdrop skin with an ethereal glow.
Create an undetectable-makeup look with light foundation. Try a cc cream and hide small imperfections with concealer to create flawless skin. Keep mascara to a minimum and opt for a pinky-nude lip stain. Skip the powder to achieve a fresh-skin look and embrace natural, yet groomed eyebrows. Add a touch of taupe creamy eyeshadow on the lids and mauve cream blush perfectly blended on the cheeks to create a dewy flush. Chanel CC cream Complete Correction Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50. $55. At Neiman Marcus. Chanel Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer. $42. At Neiman Marcus. BECCA Beach Lip and Blush Tint in Fig. $25. At Sephora. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Taupe. $30. At Sephora. NARS The Multiple in Orgasm. $39. At Sephora.
CLEAN MINIMALISTIC
Following the bare and clean trend, this look calls for a minimal makeup base with highlighted accents and a statement deep berry lip. Choose a light foundation and highlight your forehead, cheekbones, nose and cupid’s bow with a cool-toned highlighter. Chanel Perfection Lumière Velvet SPF 15. $50. At Neiman Marcus. Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Beetroot. $26. At Sephora. BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in Pearl. $41. At Sephora.
SEEING SHADES OF RED
Red lips are a classic, but in the spirit of this season’s cleanliness, put aside your matte reds and wear a satin-finish lipstick ranging from orangey red to bright apple red. Contrast your bright lips against dewy natural makeup base. Finish with a light coat of lengthening mascara and loose, naturally texturized hair with sea salt spray. Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Strawberry. $21. At Sephora. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. $23. At Sephora. Drybar Mai Tai Sea Salt Spray. $25. At Sephora.
ROMANTIC PASTELS TELL ALL
Spring 2017 brings a romantic air with pastel shades of pink, lilac, blue and teal. Skip the eyeliner and gently blend these pretty colors on the lid for a soft feminine look and finish with a little mascara and a pretty pinky lip balm. Kat Von D Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palatte. $38. At Sephora. Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto Beautifying Lip Balm. $36. At Sephora.
ETHEREAL EYES HAVE IT
Pops of colors not only inspire bold looks this season. Sheer sea foam green eyes is a simple way to wear the delicate and ethereal air of the season. Choose a smooth and soft touch eyeshadow to blend and create an effortless feel. NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Tarvos. $29. At Nordstrom.
BACK TO THE 80s
Draping makes a comeback this season to overtake the contour craze. Revive the 80s by wearing bright blush high up on your cheeks towards the temples and on the sides of your eyes blending into the center of the lids. If draping seems too bold for you try a soft pink shade first, tying in the romantic air of the season. Keep this makeup look fresh and modern by sticking to cream products, a light makeup base, and natural lashes. Ciaté London Blush Pop Crème Blush. $19. At Sephora. Bite Beauty Multistick in Lotus. $24. At Sephora.
A DASH OF GLITTER GOES FAR
Spring 2017 brings us shimmers of the 80s with glitter-dusted pouts, eyelids and even cuticles! Pat a light glitter coat over a black cherry, chocolate or wine shade. For a more delicate lip, try a beautiful shimmering sheen top coat. A liquid glitter eyeshadow with high pigmentation is a simple way to add the Spring sparkle to your eyes. NARS Audacious Lipstick in Oxblood Burgundy. $34. At Sephora. MAC Glitter in Reflects Rust. $22. At MACCostmetics.com. Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow. $24. At Sephora.
UNDERLINED AND BOLD
Glitter underliner is fun and more wearable than expected. Give the upside down cat eye a go with a silver glitter liner for an edgy yet chic vibe. Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Glamrock. $20. At Sephora.
