If you’re anxiously awaiting spring, but aren't quite ready to break out the sandals and sundresses, then get into the next best thing- spring beauty. Break out of those winter doldrums with simple makeup tweaks that are sure to hold you over until the official start of the season.
Lighten up: I adore a dark smoldering eye, but in honor of spring why not lighten up? Switch out the traditional blacks and grey eyeshadows involved for less intense shades and luxe metallic tones. Play around with colors that bring out your eyes. The result is a bit more subtle, but still packs a sultry punch.
Nervous you won't like the one color you purchase? Try a palette and make your perfect hue. We're loving the options you get with TheBalm Palettes.
Get radiant: Getting radiant for spring should be on your list of things to do. It’s easier than ever to do thanks to a color you’ll be hearing a lot about (if you haven’t already)-Radiant Orchid. It’s Pantone’s color of the year! It’s also incredibly flattering and easy to incorporate into your look. From eyeliner to lipgloss, you can add as much or as little of this must have color as you wish.

Go Bold- When it comes to brows, bold and full are in. Adopting a fuller brow can make you look younger and helps enhance your facial features. In other words, the importance of a well groomed brow that's not overly plucked can’t be overstated. Find out which brow shape works best for your face and don’t be afraid to let your brows get a little fuller.
Need a little help until some brows grow back? Fill in sparse brows with TheBalm BrowPow Eyebrow Powder in your perfect shade.
Glow on- Glowing skin isn’t a trend, but we know that natural beauty and minimal makeup will be huge for spring. Now’s the time to get a headstart. Boost your skin’s glow with a little savvy and a good diet. When you don’t have time for that, get your hands on an illuminating highlighter to fake it, or add some TheBalm Betty-Lou Manizer Bronzer for shimmer and color.
And don't forget your hair! Treat hair to some love after a long winter with a conditioning treatment. Wella makes amazing treatments that are specific to your hair type! And as summer gets closer, the need to perfect your beach waves becomes even more serious! Try Wella Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray to give hair a saltwater chic style.
