7 spring beauty trends we’re excited about this season

A number of recent runway shows and red carpets have given us plenty of inspiration for our beauty looks. From vinyl leather finishes to the prettiest shades of pink and fizzy hair, here’s a taste of the spring beauty trends we’re eyeing ahead of the new season.

There was a special one Valley of the Dolls The moment that happened with the hair recently and he hasn’t completely gone through the makeup either. Along with the aforementioned patent leather that has an almost annoying feel, doll-like beauty marks are big news for spring. It’s not just smooth skin you’ll need to own: look to sharp lashes and pretty pale pastel shades washed across the lids to rock this spring beauty trend. An evolution of the OTT saccharine pink that Barbiecore brought us last summer, the key to getting it right is the perfectly rounded blush that sits right on the apples of the cheeks (try Meri’s Domed Balsam Flush Blush in Stockholm for easy execution and color). Off the runway, singer Sabrina Carpenter and actor Sydney Sweeney are two stars who pull off this look well.

Pastel perfection

Cranberry milk, buttermilk, and latte coffee: just a selection of the delicious nail trends that have been blowing up in recent months—and our collective appetite for milky pastels and candy hues shows no signs of abating for spring. If you’re in the mood for a refreshing drink, why not try the macaroon shades of pistachio, muted mandarin and lavender? Color aside, we predict that iridescent pearl finishes will be big. More subtle than chrome, it’s equally layered over color to soften it up a bit, or worn on its own over clear and nude nails for a chic glow. For at-home manicures, try Essie’s Pearly White Shimmer, while Biosculpture’s EvoGel in Icy Elsa is a great shimmer shade to get your nail tech looking.

Blame it on Cardi B and Dua Lipa: for spring, a rich, fiery scarlet is the color to covet. A deeper, more dramatic version of the soft, ginger tones we’ve seen on celebrities like Emma Stone, it’s a color that suits every skin tone. She has already amassed something of a cult following on TikTok as well, with searches for the term at almost 200 million on the platform. To get the look, ask your colorist for a deep red with chocolate undertones, but keep in mind that you’ll need to maintain the color regularly to prevent it from fading. To keep it looking fresh between salon visits, try a color-enhancing shampoo like John Frieda’s Radiant Red Color Boosting Color Shampoo.

Girl beauty Chloé

If you’re a fan of the classic Chloé girl beauty look, you probably adored Chemena Kamali’s debut show as creative director for Fall/Winter 2024. In keeping with the house’s core “no-makeup” aesthetic, the show provided a key reference point for that that is set to be a major trend heading into a new season. While there is OTHER USEFUL makeup in this first skin directive, is used sparingly and almost undetectably; a little concealer to hide the redness around the nose, a touch of powder to remove any unwanted shine and just a swipe of a brow pomade to keep things in place. Plus, it’s a look that relies more on good skincare than makeup, so brightening masks, hydrating serums, and cooling, de-puffing under-eye globes are the prep tools you’ll need on hand for make it work.

Strobe skin

Trust Pat McGrath to be behind one of spring’s biggest (and cutest) beauty trends. While many other designers showcased their take on it, no one did it quite like Pat for John Galliano’s Maison Margiela Artisanal show. While the hyper-reflective gel-like skirt the models are wearing may not be quite everyday wear, a version of it is. If you need inspiration, Terry Barber’s high-shine skin lightening at Richard Quinn is a good place to start, while the Oscars red carpet also served up acres of glowing skin, courtesy of Emma Stone, Issa Rae and Lupita Nyong’o. To help you on your way, a good primer like Vieve’s Skin Nova is an essential base coat, while MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish powder in Lightscapade is a great final step.

If pretty pastels and pinks aren’t your thing, rest assured that the next big makeup trend to dominate the new season is entirely darker and more dramatic. Whether it’s singer Raye, Italian icon Sophia Loren (who inspired Gucci’s Fall/Winter 2024 collection), or opera singer Maria Callas, who Erdem Moralıoğlu referenced in his Fall/Winter 2024 show, inspiration is everywhere. For absolute precision and blackest lines, try Gucci Beauty’s Eyeliner Pen.

Bouffant bobs

If recent celebrity cuts are anything to go by, the bouffant bob is back. Also known as the baroque bob, the voluminous and sophisticated style reflects the ubiquitous mood of relaxed luxury. While modern fans include Zendaya, older and no less iconic iterations can be seen on everyone from ’90s supermodels to Marilyn Monroe. The key to getting the right amount of blowout lies in the right volumizing styling products and a little expertise with a hot round brush. You can also nail two trends in one and show off your bob in the sought-after “luxe brunette” color. Comprised of a rich brunette base with multi-toned velvety chocolates woven together to add depth and dimension, a high-shine, glossy finish is essential.
