Just like fashion, beauty and makeup go through trends each season. We’re particularly excited about spring 2019 makeup trends. This season there are two extremes in the trends – one can either opt for soft, feminine and easy to achieve OR bold, bright and out-there makeup.
Some of our favourite trends include colourful eyeliner (often in red or blue hues), bright eyeshadow in any power colour (see Givenchy’s take on it), clear skin makeup which a “no-makeup-makeup-look” that is more tricky than it sounds. You need to get your skin looking flawless (book that facial!) and then add a little bronzer and a touch of shimmer. Your brows also play a big role in this look. Then there’s the pink makeup look.
The pink makeup look can be worn in two ways: either soft and subtle or in power pink. One can intensify your favourite pink shadow by simply dampening the brush and applying the slightly more pasty eyeshadow to the lid.
The pink makeup look also goes hand-in-hand with coral makeup. Living coral is the Pantone colour of the year and is making a cameo all over the runways and makeup looks this year.

THE PINK & CORAL SPRING 2019 MAKEUP TRENDS
I personally love this trend. It works well on all skin tones and is ultra-feminine. Power up the colour intensity for a dramatic, fashion-forward look or leave it soft and girly.
ACHIEVE THE LOOK: SOFT ALL-OVER PINK
Nothing can be easier than this pretty pink makeup. This soft pink look is super quick and easy to achieve. In fact, it has become my 5-minute makeup routine for when I have no time available to apply fussy makeup like when I need to do the school drop. It’s also a great look for travel because it only entails a few products, so it’s light to pack.
In this look: Use a moisture-rich foundation like the organic Lula Fox Moisturising Foundation. Then tap the Lula Fox Lip & Cheek Tint (in colour Blush) on your eyes and lips. Dot the same product on the apples of your cheeks and pat outwards. Now add a little shimmer to the top of the cheekbone with a Lula Fox Glow Pot. Add mascara and brow makeup. To set the makeup and ad more dewiness spritz some calming Hey Gorgeous Rosewater Toner over the face.
ACHIEVE THE LOOK: LIVING CORAL
This look will take a little more time than the all-over pink look, but it’s still very achievable. Instead of coral used below, you can also use a pink eyeshadow for two variants to one of the biggest spring 2019 makeup trends.
In the crease: I suggest you use either Lula Fox Hydrasheer Eyeshadow in Sun Goddess (for a coral look) or Pink Panther (for a pink look). Also, trace a thin line of the colour under the lower lashes.
In the outside, upper corner: add a little depth with Lula Fox Hydrasheer Eyeshadow in Light Brown.
Above the pupil on the upper lid: add some gold with Lula Fox Hydrasheer Eyeshadow in Goldstone.
Add some liquid liner on the top lash line if you wish and lots of mascara.
For the intense, bright look on the right, you can dampen your brush and apply Sun Goddess or Pink Panther. Add lots of eyeliner and some shimmer over the whole upper lid. Don’t forget to define your brows.
Hope you enjoy these looks. Keep an eye on Equilibrio for more spring 2019 makeup trends and tips.
