Spring Beauty Trends: Coachella Edition

Festival season is finally upon us! Coachella is home to plenty of mesmerizing, fun beauty inspiration and the more out-of-the-box, the better. Ditch the floral crowns and flash tattoos– these are the trends that you’ll be seeing a lot this weekend!

Glitter Everywhere

From hair to eyelids and to lips– glitter will be found on all festival beauties this weekend! It’s the perfect finish to glisten in the desert night.

Unicorn Inspired Looks

Stray from your usual neutrals and pack on some bright color onto your lids! Stick to rainbow hues around your eyes and lips. The crazier, the better– have fun with your look!

Glossy Lids

Embrace your shine by going glossy! It’s a simple look that creates the boldest statement. Here’s a ChicPro tip: for a cheaper alternative, use Vaseline to add in some natural highlight!

TRENDS: SPRING MAKEUP 2014

The frigid temperatures outside are just a reminder that spring is on the way! With that, comes the hottest new beauty trends for Spring 2014, as seen on the Fashion Week runway! Here are a few of our standouts and predictions for hot beauty trends this spring:

ORANGE LIPSTICK

1 Rag and Bone

The catwalks of Donna Karan, Prabal Gurung, and Rag & Bone all displayed orange lipstick, and we predict this neon pigment will be a pucker favorite in Spring 2014!

BLUE EYESHADOW

2 Marc Jacobs

Blue eyeshadow was a hit on the runways of Marc Jacobs and Naeen Khan. We adore this pop of color not usually donned in the spring, which was just enough to brighten up these looks without being too overdone!

WINGED LINER

3 Chanel

The always eye-catching winged liner was showcased at both the Chanel and Tracy Reese runway shows. The glam glitter at Chanel upgraded this look, and the classic look was achieved at Tracy Reese by using a thin cotton swab dipped in makeup remover to achieve that clean line!

GLOWING SKIN

4 Philip

Fresh and dewy is making a return this spring, and we couldn’t help notice that Philip Lim and J. Mendel are paving the way to the perfect example of this hot trend!

GOLD EYESHADOW

5 Dior

The Winter Olympics may be over, but both Dior and Jason Wu are going for the gold with their shining use of the hue during Fashion Week. The color highlights, while the metallic sheen is absolute perfection!
