We have welcomed celebrity makeup artist, Amy Hollier, to show us a few must-haves for this season. Learn how to pair off the latest styles with your remaining makeup application for a finished look that is both trendy and sophisticated.
Spring Beauty Trends with Celebrity Makeup Artist Amy Hollier
As the warm Spring air drifts into season, these beauty trends will be ripe and ready along side the strawberries and avocados. Amy Hollier, celebrity makeup artist of Luxe Beauty Team at the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon LA picks from the tree the two best springtime looks: bright matte lips and silvery metallic lids.
Bright Matte Lips
“This is one trend I am always delighted to see come back,” says Amy. Try in muted red or vivid coral. Amy’s tips for the best way to wear – pair with minimal eye makeup and watch your skin radiate. Amy’s favorite runway execution of this trend was Jason Wu’s Spring 2012 show where the catwalk crawled with pop-art inspired neon matte red lips.
Silvery Metallic Lids
“This trend is right up my alley,” Amy tells us. “I am obsessed with silvery shadow colors!” Olivier Theyskens’ Theory featured a subtle and wearable version of the metallic eye for his Spring 2012 runway. Amy shows us how to recreate the trending look:
- Start with a simple khaki grey matte shadow on the outer corners.
- Blend into the crease with the metallic silver on the center of the lids.
- Pair with a sheer pink lipstick or balm for a modern, day-appropriate look or add a bright tinted gloss for a fun night-out look.
As the flowers begin to bloom, use these Spring beauty looks to blossom.
