Spring 2019 beauty trends to look glam in the city.
While New Yorkers patiently await the arrival of warmer weather, makeup artists have been sending models down the Spring/Summer runways sporting various hair and makeup looks for the new season. Some are natural and demure, while others definitely require a bold personality to pull them off. Whether you lean toward muted makeup palettes or more eye-catching hues, here are some spring 2019 beauty trends to look glam in the big city. (And unlike fashion, you don’t have to wait for the temperatures to rise to start enjoying them.)
Metallic Smokey Eyes
Smudged, smokey eyes are a sultry look for nighttime outings around the city. Update your evening makeup routine this spring by pairing your regular black eyeliner with a metallic shadow along your lash line (upper and lower). Lancome’s Color Design Velvet Metallic Eyeshadow is the perfect pick.
If fun and funky eye makeup is your thing, then you’ll love this spring beauty trend. Neon shades have been spotted at several designer runway shows, and it’s a surprisingly easy look to master. Line your top lash line with a vibrant liner – maybe hot pink, electric blue, or neon green – and wing it out slightly. Finish off with your favorite mascara.
The “No Makeup” Look
New Yorkers are masters of the “no makeup” look, but this season calls for fresh skin with a glowing finish. Basically, you should appear as if you’ve just gotten a really expensive facial. Keep your skin flawless with an exfoliating mask like Clinique’s City Block Purifying Charcoal Clay Mask & Scrub, and never forget to apply sunscreen before setting foot outside your apartment.
It doesn’t matter if you’re Team Falsies or if you prefer lash extensions – long, flirty lashes aren’t going anywhere in 2019.
It’s obviously too cold to go swimming, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sport tousled, beachy tresses. Try the Mai Tai Spritzer Sea Salt Spray from Dry Bar for extra texture and volume.
Glitter and Gloss
As one of the top spring 2019 beauty trends, pairing glittery eye shadow with a glossy lip is a gorgeous blend of sparkle and shine. Apply your favorite glitter eye shadow to your lids, then balance it out with a high-shine lip gloss like NARS’ lip gloss in “Sweet Dreams”, a universally flattering shade.
