Pastels are pretty, but spring’s vibrant new makeup is a whole lot sexier, with striking red and fuchsia lip colors and sultry metallic shadows and glosses.red-lipsticksRed Lips
Yes, you can wear red lipstick when it’s 70 degrees outside. Just pick one with a tinge of orange to brighten things up, and choose a satin or creamy formula (matte is too serious for spring). Apply with a brush—or, to tone it down for daytime, makeup artist Dick Page suggests tissue-blotting the lipstick away almost entirely, so all that’s left is a soft stain.

Khaki Eye Shadow
Livelier than brown, khaki shadow is one of the easiest colors to wear. To keep it fresh, Page likes a shimmery powder—”a matte khaki can look muddy,” he says—brushed on lids to above the creases (make sure to blend the edges well). For a smoky evening look, sweep a little along your bottom lash line, too.

There’s no reason to be intimidated by hot pink. When you choose the right texture, it’s actually quite flattering. For blush, pick a shimmer-free formula in “a strong, almost fuchsia color,” says Page, and dust it on the apples of your cheeks for that you-know-what type of glow. For lips, choose a sheer, luminous gloss so the color isn’t too heavy. And if you really want to stand out, wear bright pink on both cheeks and lips.
