Wild Spring Beauty Trends

Spring brings in a fresh crop of pretty pinks and purple every year. Love that! But sometimes a girl just wants to mix it up.
Whether you crave crazy nails or edgy shadow, we've got some awesome new trends to try. Keep reading for our fresh faves.

Earthy neutrals don't have to be boring, and are far from basic this spring. I've had a months-long crush on MAC's subtly chic Satin Taupe. It doesn't stand out in the container but, in real life, is a total head-turner. Smudge it on for day or night. It'll look hot now, but is timeless enough to wear through fall.

MAC Eye Shadow Frost in Satin Taupe, $15,

Our beauty closet is quickly filling up with sunny shades of nail polish. They remind us of daisies and daffodils, and look anything but dainty. A bright yellow pedi is perf with your fave colorful flips. Ah, spring.

Brows are having their moment, so drop the tweezers and let  your arches fill out. Need some reinforcement (or, gulp, over-plucked)? Gently go over 'em with a brow pencil to add some extra color and fullness. Brilliant!

Bored with plain old kohl? We hear ya. That's why we're diggin' dark liner applied to the outside of the bottom lash line. It makes a statement too major for school, but is pretty cool for a party.

Ke$ha has plenty "what was she thinking?!" moments, but her signature sparkle is growing on us. We found crazy-cheap sparkles--it'd be totally fun to swipe them on the outer corner of your eyes or play around with a wild dance-night design.
