You’re over the freezing-cold commute. No more snow in your boots, or digging out your car. With Winter winding down, it’s time to bring on Spring! But as we change seasons, consider changing up your makeup choices. The heavy, smokey eyes of an icy winter can look out of place on a sunny spring day. So here’s a few Spring colors to get you in the mood.

Think Pink for the Spring. While it’s fun to go dark in the Winter with icy purples and deep grays, try out pastel shades on your fingertips for Spring. Pale pastels are not only flattering, but they’re easy to match with your wardrobe, and chips in the polish will go unnoticeable next to your skin color. For fresh pink tones, try NYX Nail Polish in Flash or Dream.

If you’re looking to switch up your typical eye shadow colors, take a look at the color wheel. Have green eyes? Go directly across the wheel for a deep purple. Above, Kristen Bell takes her baby blues and complements them with a shimmering green. Instead of sticking with the typical browns, mixing pastels can be a fun and flirty way of livening things up. For shimmering greens, try NYX Pearl Eyeshadow in in Lime Pearl or Green Eyes Pearl.

There’s nothing more flattering on a woman than
a set of flushed cheeks. But solid blushes can look rigid and fake, especially when the weather gets warmer. That’s why a cream blush is ideal: It goes on smooth, and blends
with a touch of your fingertips. Rub a small dab into the apple of your cheek, then blend outwards with your fingers. For perfect rosy cheeks, try NYX Cream Blush in Glow or Diva.
