Weekendspiration: 3 Must-Try Beauty Looks!

The happy glow of the weekend is creeping in, and like all beauty lovers, we’re contemplating the looks we’ll be going for in our time off. Here’s a roundup of three of our favorite looks to inspire you this weekend. Beachy Eyes  Blue eye makeup is one of the boldest trends of spring, and this gorgeous eye makeup puts a beachy spin on the look. The magic here is in the contrast of cool turquoise and warm peach. Get the Look:  Apply a warm peachy blush to your cheeks (we like Lancôme Blush in Love in Peche Joue-Joue), and a lipstick in a similar hue to your lips (think Shu Uemura Rogue Unlimited Supreme Shine in Light Peach). Next, dust a warm tone, like peach or bronze, all over your eyelid. Lorac Eyeshadow in Golden Peach Sheen is a great option. Finally, line the inner half of your eye with turquoise pencil, like Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Deep End, and finish with your favorite mascara. To give the look a nighttime edge, line your eyes with black liquid eyeliner, and contour your lids with a deeper eyeshadow. Soft Waves Talk about hair lust. These soft, voluminous waves at Diane von Furstenberg are perfect for a night out this weekend. Get the Look: Spritz your hair with Redken Full Frame 07 Protective Volumizing Mousse and blow dry with a big, round brush. Next, section the hair before curling with a medium to large curling iron and finish with hairspray. Colorful Cool We have a major beauty crush on Jessica Hart’s FOAM Magazine look. Between her effortless, textured topknot and bright coral lips we’re dying to rock this look all weekend long. Get the Look: Spray your hair with L’Oréal Professionnel Texture Expert Infinium 2 to give  your strands a nice second-day hold. Gather your hair loosely before wrapping your bun. With this look the less structured the better, so pull out some wisps and embrace the imperfections. Top it off with a swipe of Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine lipstick in Corail in Touch, and a pretty peach on your lids. Which look inspires you most?
