Your Spring Makeup Bag According to Pantone

Spring Fashion Week has long since ended, but we’re still thinking about the cheery pastels and vivacious yellows that we saw on (and off) the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris. As we poured over Pantone Color Institute’s list of on-trend hues for the spring-summer fashion season, we wondered, how can we incorporate these colors into our beauty too?

Let Pantone’s spring-summer color palette—with soft pinks, punchy reds and cool-toned violets—inspire you to change up your makeup look for the season. Ahead, the lipsticks, eye pencils and highlighters we’re adding to our cosmetics bags for the upcoming warm months.

Backstage Beauty: Stila Cosmetics for Alice + Olivia

The historic Prince George Ballroom provided a stunning backdrop for Alice + Olivia‘s fall 2015 collection. Walking past racks of richly embellished clothing into the backstage makeup area, we knew the accompanying makeup would not disappoint.

Sarah Lucero of stila Cosmetics created a “rock ‘n’ roll bohemian girl who’s a touch romantic” in this Biba-inspired look. First, liquid liner in a glossy black was glided onto the eyelid, with black smudge pot added just on the end to create a matte soft wing. Mascara was swiped onto the lashes, concentrated more at the roots in the center of the eye for a wide-eyed effect (we love that tip!) for the dreamiest, most feathery lashes we’ve ever seen. Lips were a concoction of two layers of textures: the first, liquid lip paint in a fiery red matte, with a glossy merlot shade for a shiny vinyl finish.

The result was sultry and dramatic, and we’ll definitely take some cues from this swinging starlet look for fall.
