Spring is all about color – from an aqua eyelid to an orange lip to a flushed, pink cheek. The object is to wear color sparingly and not all at once. Pick a focal point – the eyes, lips, or cheeks – and stick with that one feature. Lightly bronzed skin and a dewy complexion complete the signature spring face.
Products to Try:
