Get the look
While the catwalks can always be relied upon to give us at least one inspiring idea for sprucing up our “look” (no? Fine. At least we can credit them for making us look like ridiculous fools, and giving us a good night-out story), when it comes to cosmetics, trends are fun, but looking good is better. Trust us: we’re still scarred from attempting Yves Saint Laurent’s black lipstick look back in 2008. Shudder. Which is why we can’t help but smile when we hear that electro-bright blue eye shadow is the season’s “it” shade, before rolling our eyes and reaching for our anytime, anywhere neutral palette of inoffensive beiges, pinks and browns. Happily, this season, there are plenty (well, at least five) wearable spring make-up trends that actually work in the real world. Pucker up: these make-up looks are a playful, pretty way to brighten up your style.
