It’s always fun to do spring makeup. Spring makeup is always fun because of longer days, warmer weather, and the abundance of blooming flowers.

Spring 2022 is a different story, however. We’re all trying to find joy in our lives, despite the current news cycle.

Despite this, the spring makeup trends are on point. These gorgeous, fun looks are perfect for spring because we are spending more time outside and have more free time. The following spring makeup trends will lift your spirits, whether you want extra glowing skin or brighten up your eyes with neon eyeshadow.

1. Negative Space Cat Eyes

Important PSA: Eyeliner can be used anywhere, not just on your lash line. Jodie Turner Smith shows you how to create a cat eye look by expanding the wing above the crease. You only need a black liquid eyeliner to achieve this look. However, you can experiment with different shades of liner as shown on Shay Mitchell. Ash K Holm makeup artist, added a mauve line to her eyes above her crease for an extra pop of color.

2. Clean Girl Makeup

Although no-makeup makeup may seem a little strange, it’s possible to have flawless skin with minimal products. You can keep the spotlight on your natural glow by using an SPF-infused tint. It will protect your skin from sun damage and provide a bit of coverage, but still let your natural complexion shine through.

3. Pops of Neon

The era of neon eye makeup is here. Bold eyeliners and eyeshadows are still in fashion. This is despite brighter days ahead. This trend can be achieved by adding color to your inner eyes or switching to a colored eyeliner. Storm Reid demonstrates both using this abstract eyeliner look from Pauly Blanch. If bright eye makeup is not your style, you can try a subtle look like Solange’s light green eyeshadow.

4. Classic Red Lipstick

There are more events and meetups happening in person, so it is time to get rid of all those bold lipsticks you have had sitting around since the pandemic. You can make a simple, fresh, and easy-to-use combination of classic lipsticks with minimal makeup, or even two shades, as Georgie Eisdell did for Anya Taylor-Joy. To create subtle ombre effects, the makeup artist used Dior Rouge lipstick 743 and Dior Rouge Forever Liquid Lipstick 999.

5. Crystal Accents

You can call it the Euphoria effect, or Y2K’s strong influence on current beauty trends. But applying crystals to the eye area is the best way for a little sparkle to your tried and true makeup looks. It’s also a fun arts-and-craft project.
