spring 2023 makeup trends

90s Comeback

The 90s are back in full force, and this time they're bringing a bold, edgy twist. Think grungy makeup, chunky jewelry, and baggy clothes. The 90s comeback is all about attitude, and it's perfect for those who want to make a statement. To achieve the 90s look, try a dark lip color like black, burgundy, or brown. Pair it with a smudged, smoky eye and a bold eyebrow for a retro, yet modern look.

1. Grunge Eyes 🖤

In Spring, you'll see a significant increase in the popularity of messy, lived-in eye makeup. Grunge eyes are the perfect complement to the 90s comeback trend. Eyeliner smudges, thick mascara, and black lipstick were all staples of the '90s grunge look because they embodied the ideal of imperfection.

This look is all about dark, smudged eye makeup that gives off an edgy vibe. To achieve the grunge eye look, use black or dark-colored eyeliner to line your upper and lower lash line. Then, use a smudging brush to blend out the liner, creating a smoky effect. Add a touch of metallic eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes to make them pop.

You can successfully pull off this look since it emphasizes a deliberate imperfection. That is to say, all it takes to get the hang of this trend is a speedy, in-the-moment application.

2. Smokey Eyes 🌫️

Smokey eyes are a classic beauty trend that never goes out of style. For Spring 2023, the smokey eye look is getting an update with brighter colors and bolder shapes. Think bright blue, green, or purple eyeshadow paired with a thick, dramatic liner.

The key to achieving the perfect smokey eye is to blend, blend, blend. Use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to blend out the edges of your eyeshadow, creating a seamless, smokey effect.

3. Lip Liner 🫦

From a natural lip to a bold red, lip liners are all the trend for making lips look fuller and more defined. Lip liner is making a comeback, and this time it's all about making a statement. From bold, bright colors to metallic finishes, lip liner is the perfect way to add some drama to your makeup look.

Choose a bold color that compliments your skin tone to achieve the perfect lip liner look. Then, use a lip liner to trace the outline of your lips, filling in the rest with a coordinating lipstick or gloss.

No-Makeup Makeup

There will be a rebirth of the "no-makeup, makeup" look for Spring 2023. The trend is to use less foundation and concealer, and to apply it only where it's needed. The goal is to achieve a natural, glowing complexion with minimal makeup.

To achieve the no-makeup makeup look, start with a lightweight tinted moisturizer or BB cream. Then, add a touch of cream blush to your cheeks for a natural flush. Finish off the look with a coat of mascara and a natural lip color.

4. Tinted Moisturizer 🧴

Tinted moisturizer is a great way to achieve a natural, dewy look for Spring 2023. This lightweight formula provides sheer coverage while hydrating your skin, giving you a fresh, glowing complexion.

Using a tinted moisturizer that is the same shade as your skin and blending it in with your fingertips or a sponge will give you a natural, flawless look.

5. Hyperglow/Wet Look 💦

This trend is perfect for Spring 2023, as it gives off a fresh, youthful vibe. To get the desired effect, you should ditch the matte concealer, foundation, and chalky powder highlighter in favor of a radiance-boosting tinted serum, moisturizer, and SPF.

Consider switching to skin-loving sheer foundations and multi-use moisturizing face and body products in place of full-coverage foundations and high-voltage highlighters. The aim of this style is to achieve a completely dewy, radiant complexion with minimal effort.

Start with a lightweight moisturizer or primer to get the hyperglow or wet effect. Then, apply a highlighter or illuminator to your cheekbones, nose, and forehead for a soft glow.

6. Underpainting 🎨

Subtle contouring is the trend to look for this Spring. The "Mary Phillips contour," made popular by Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner's makeup artist, entails applying contour before concealer and foundation.

If you're not familiar with underpainting, it's a technique where you apply a contrasting color underneath your usual makeup. This technique was popular in the '80s and '90s, and it's making a comeback in Spring 2023. It's all about bold and bright colors that create a contrast with your usual makeup, adding a pop of color to your look.

For instance, you can try applying a bright blue or green eyeliner under your eyes or a neon pink or yellow eyeshadow under your usual color. This technique works particularly well with bold and vibrant colors, giving them an extra dimension.

7. Metallic Y2K Eyeshadow ✨

This season, the eyes are taking center stage, with bold and dramatic looks making a comeback. Smokey eyes and grunge eyes are still very much in style, but there's a new trend that's been making waves, too: metallic Y2K eyeshadow.

The Y2K era had a big influence on the trend of metallic eyes, which fuse glitter with grunge. Apply your preferred eyeshadow all over your lids. Then, to create a metallic effect, tap and sweep a powder over the top with your finger. Add your go-to eyeliner and mascara to round off the look.

Colored & Bleached & Glitter Eyebrows

Eyebrows are a key feature of the face, and this season they're getting a colorful and creative twist. Colored eyebrows are all the rage, with shades like pink, blue, and green making a statement on the runway.

Bleached eyebrows are also making a comeback, giving off a bold and striking look. For those who aren't ready to commit to tinted or permanent colored or bleached brows, glitter eyebrows are another option. This trend involves adding glitter to your eyebrows, creating a fun and playful look.

8. Colored Lashes 👁️

Lashes are another feature of the face that are getting a colorful upgrade this season. With shades like blue, green, and purple being popular choices, colored lashes are making a comeback. This trend is perfect for those who want to add a pop of color to their look without going overboard.

Wrapping It Up

Spring 2023 is all about bold and creative looks that take inspiration from the past while giving it a modern twist. Underpainting, metallic Y2K eyeshadow, colored and bleached eyebrows, and colored lashes are just a few of the trends to look out for. So get ready to have some fun with your makeup and experiment with these new and exciting trends!🎉
