Spring is just around the corner and as we transition to warmer weather, beauty trends adjust as well. Distancing from the cool and deep tones of winter makeup, spring is all about vibrant colors and warm palettes. While winter's winged and smokey eyeliner trends will continue its reign, more colorful eye makeup will invade the beauty scene as the season changes. Since mask-wearing is still the norm, spring 2021 makeup trends will continue to revolve around the eyes. Here are the latest makeup trends for spring 2021.
Celebrity makeup artist Sir John tells Bustle that for this spring, the approach to makeup will be "less in more." At least, when it comes to skin. As people are becoming more comfortable in their own skin, natural is the way to go. We've seen it in natural hair trends and for skin, barely-there makeup and dewy skin are in. Sir John recommends using a lightweight foundation like L'Oréal Paris Skin Paradise Water Infused Tinted Moisturizer. His technique is using a damp BeautyBlender to apply foundation on moisturized skin. He also says to only apply product where it's needed. Add a bright blush like NARS Couer Battant for a natural-looking flush on cheeks.
Look to Lily Collins or Dua Lipa for brow inspiration. Beauty expert and Garnier consultant Millie Morales suggests using a clean mascara brush and some hairspray to create that untamed brows look. For sparse areas, use a micro eyebrow pencil to draw and mimic natural hairs. Harper's Bazaar suggests Fenty Beauty Brow MVP Ultra Fine Brow Pencil & Styler, Maybelline Brow Precise Micro Eyebrow Pencil Makeup, or NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil. To set them, brush your brows upwards with a clear gel or brow soap for fluffy eyebrows.

Bold Eyeshadow Colors
Morales says blues, greens and yellows will be popular eyeshadow colors for spring. This way, your eyes will pop against your face mask. Some of Allure's top picks are Juvia's Place Warrior III Palette, Viseart Editorial Brights Palette, and Beauty Bakerie Do It For The Graham Palette. Make sure you have micellar water nearby to clean up minor flaws or fallout. Cosmopolitan also predicts that monochromatic eyes and lips will be a spring hit. Pair an electric pink eyeshadow with an equally bold pink lipstick. If you want to go further, go wild with metallic glitter.
Since mask-wearing is still a necessity in most cities, it's only natural that makeup trends are still focused on the eyes. Aside from checking out extreme lash lengthening mascara trends, play around with colored mascara. For added length, swipe on some lash primer before you apply your colored mascara. Makeup artist William Scott tells Who What Wear that when in doubt, go for a blue mascara. Most leading brands have it and it's neutral enough to go with most outfits. For the more adventurous, Who What Wear suggests L'Oréal Voluminous Original Volume Building Mascara in Deep Burgundy or Deep Green, Dior Diorshow Pump 'N' Volume Mascara in Purple Pump, Lancôme Monsieur Big Color Lash Top Coat in Pink, or Shiseido Controlled Chaos MascaraInk in Emerald Energy.
