1. Cloud Skin

We’ve been on a 2000s revival kick for a bit now, but the late 2010s are slowly creeping back too. A prime example is the return of matte foundation, but with an upgrade, thankfully. The cloud skin trend is about getting a nice subtle glow with a sheer matte finish, and it’s taking over TikTok.

2. Color-Coordination

Monochrome and color-coordinated looks are having a moment in fashion and now beauty too. Bonus points go to Lizzo for not only matching her makeup, outfit and even nails but also opting for the perfect shade for spring on the Grammys red carpet.

3. Heavy Blush

The start of spring means more colors and warmer weather, perfect timing for the heavy blush trend. Packing on the blush can add another element of color to our looks and help achieve a warm, sun-kissed look. Noah Cyrus packed on the blush for Milan Fashion Week with a bright, colorful look that was perfect for early spring.

4. Soft Glam

As the weather starts to get hotter, we sometimes feel like wearing lighter makeup. Luckily, soft glam is in right now. Hailey Bieber did a no-makeup look for London Fashion Week, showing that it can be perfect for any occasion or time. If you need a few tips on how to make it work, who better than Rihanna?

Despite the weather warming up, frosty eye looks are becoming more popular. As the Y2K renaissance continues, people are also picking up makeup trends from the era like shades of light blue, silver, white and seafoam green on the eyes. Olivia Rodrigo wore the look on the red carpet, matching her eyeshadow to the cool tone of her dress.

6. Powerful Pinks

Between the blooming flowers and matching spring makeup trends, pink is perfect for the season. It’s no secret that pink is having a moment. In fact, we’re already seeing a lot of powerful pinks. Kacey Musgraves went all out with a pink monochrome look for the Grammys.

7. Smudged Eyeliner

Winged eyeliner will never disappear, but these days, people are opting out. Instead, they’re lining their waterline and smudging it ever so slightly — similar to traditional kajal or kohl — for an edgy look. Though, if it’s not edgy enough for you, go ahead and scroll down to number 16.

8. Light Lipsticks

While eyeshadow shades might be getting more bold, lip colors are becoming a bit more toned down. A daunting but trendy look right now is a lip color that almost matches your skin tone.

9. Barely There Brows

Brows are also becoming more low-key this spring as the thin look takes over TikTok. We’re seeing plucked and bleached brows on some of our favorite celebrities too — most notably, Doja Cat.

10. Perfect Placement

Less is more when you opt for these geometric eye looks. People are using less and less product to do full glam these days by just putting eyeshadow and eyeliner in certain spots and unique shapes for the same effect. Think Euphoria but minimalistic.

11. Below the Eye

People are also switching up the focal point of their eye makeup and extending it below the eye. Zendaya did this with the reverse cat eye, focusing the heavier lines of the eyeliner beneath the eye.

12. Old Hollywood Glam

Y2K isn’t the only era we are revisiting this season. We’re seeing a lot of celebs wear Old Hollywood glam these days, including Jisoo who channelled Audrey Hepburn. 

15. Ultra Glossy Lips

Highlight isn’t the only glow we are going for this season, we’re also loving ultra glossy lipgloss. Finding a lip gloss that pops like that can be hard, but luckily, Teen Vogue has already tried out and picked some of the best lip glosses.

16. Grunge Makeup

With the Wednesday and anti-mascara trends going viral all over social media, it was only a matter of time before grunge makeup came back. Sharpen your eyeliner pencils and get ready to blend out an extreme smokey eye.
