Blues, magentas, and tangerines, oh my! There are so many ways to brighten up your spring and summer collections without breaking your piggy bank. Update your make up bags with a slew of new and exciting products that boast electric shades to compliment your wild side!
For starters, shimmering, dewy skin is a must for summer. Even if you're not ready to dive right into all the richly colored hues, wade your way into the water with glittered shades of brown. Neutral shades of golden brown, rosy bronze, or ivory will work well with whatever you natural skintone is--added bonus if you have a tan--and the glitter will add light-reflecting shine to give you a sunkissed finish.

If you're ready to try a trend in a bit more daring way, we suggest using a colored blush that will really draw out your features and add a playful, flirty flare to your beauty regimen. Tangerines, orange, and coral hues are some of the hottest color waves for spring and summer and what better place to flaunt your finer features than on your face!? For those of us that are a little less bold and daring, a coral, softer pink hue is a beautiful way to soften your cheekbones for a playful and classy look.
Make Up For Ever Powder Blush in Tangerine, $20; available at sephora.com.
Cheekbones and lips aren't the only places you can spruce up your look. If you prefer make up that is natural and neutral, but want to spice up your look this season, add a big pop of coloring by drawing the attention upward to your eyes! Blue and teal hues are all the rage right now and you can play up this style regardless of whether you're a blonde or brunette! But if blue has got you feeling a little under the weather, keep it fresh and sexy with a plum mascara that does more for your lashes than a girl could ever dream!
