Spring Trends - Metal Eyes and Bright Lips

One of my favorite trends for Spring is a carry over from the Fall.  But this version is a brighter "springier"version.  Combine neutral toned metal colors and finishes with a bright bold lip.  The hot lip colors for Spring are berries, corals and pinks.  But really you can't go wrong with any bright color right now!  Eyeshadows are just what it says - Metals.  Think bronze, copper, gold etc.  And the finish should be a subtle shimmer just like a precious metal would be when polished.  Pigments will have the best payoff for this effect.  Play down the cheeks with a coordinating hue for the lips but think on a more neutral and light version of the lip.  Black or dark brown eyeliner pair up nicely with the metal colors.
