Quickie: Spring’s Hot Makeup Shades

Allure Magazine has a rundown of the 6 best makeup shades for spring.

Probably the least shocking news is that red lips are in. (Is this news anymore? Are red lips ever out?) Also big for spring: khaki green eye shadow, metallic purple eye shadow and liner, and flushed pink cheeks and lips. Not necessarily all at the same time.

What I love about makeup is that it’s a quick, fun, and commitment-free way to give your look a little punch. You can freshen your face by switching your normal neutral eyeliner for a purple without having to embrace Lady Gaga’s Poker Face. The nice thing about Allure’s list is that the six shades their featuring can be made to work on just about any skin tone or face. There’s nothing on their list that’s so crazy you can’t give it a try.
