Flowers are blooming, hemlines are rising and the sun is shining more each day, all of which means one thing: it’s time for a spring beauty overhaul. We can’t wait to add some happy, spring colors to our regular beauty routine so we dug up 3 fresh looks to try this weekend. Whether you’re brunching, running around town, or even just enjoying some precious time with your DVR, we’ve got a look for you. Poppy Red: Don’t relinquish a red pout to the depths of winter! With a matte, lighter red this look is spring and daytime appropriate. We love all varieties of the hue, and Maybelline SuperStay 24HR Color in In All Day Cherry and Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture The Mats in #201 Orange Imagine are two current favorites. We also love L'Oréal Colour Riche Le Gloss in Peach Fuzz. If you’re unsure as to which hue is right for you check out our red lipstick guide! Half-Up Braided Crown: There’s something about soaking in the spring sun that makes us yearn for the bohemian. This half-up look featured on A Cup of Jo is the perfect fuss-free weekend look. To add some textured waves to your hair, air dry it and smooth on an anti-frizz serum such as Garnier Fructis Style Calm Down Anti-Frizz Cream, L'Oréal Paris EverStyle Alcohol-Free Smooth & Shine Serum or finish your tresses off with some all-natural Argan Oil. Peachy Clean: Olivia Wilde’s clean look has our hearts aflutter. Take a page out of her book with Giorgio Armani Blushing Fabric in Shimmering Apricot and subtle eye makeup—your peachy cheeks will steal the show. We also love the au naturel look of L'Oréal Paris True Match Blush in Barely Blushing and Benefit CORALista blush, too. As for that perfectly dewy skin skin, add a deep-cleaning facemask such as Skin Ceuticals Clarifying Clay Masque or Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque into your skincare regimen and get ready to glow!
