Spring 2018 Beauty Inspo

As it's officially Spring here in North Carolina (even if it may not feel like it most days!), here at WINK we wanted to showcase all that's trending in beauty for the newest season.

Spring 2018 welcomed a return of the ponytail, celebrated negative space in nail art, and didn't shy away from unique, bold eyeliner applications. 

View more on what's trending in this season below.


MAKEUP

This season seemed to break all the rules with eyeliner. Double stacked liner, colorful, bold, interrupted, stamped, upside down, and outline eyeliner were all seen on the runways for Spring. All in all, wear your eyeliner how ever you'd like, because it's in style.

While eyeliner stole the show, a return to delicate also made an appearance. Paired with a glossy eye or dewy cheeks, the au naturale face with a barely there cheek will continue to be ever present on runways, magazines, and for everyday wear.

Sprays of glitter were the last big makeup trend on runways this season. Whether it's chunky glitter strategically placed on lips, a golden beam of highlight on the cheeks, or a sparkly eye from lash line to brow bone--glitter always has a time and a place.

Thank goodness this year welcomes the return of the ponytail. A double stacked ponytail, low pony, or a braided pony were all seen among the photos from various shows. Ponytails are an effortless hairstyle I think everyone can agree to and get behind (and hopefully it's not going anywhere anytime soon!).

On the opposite end of hair, the runways showcased unruly texture in both up and down styles. Curls that weren't so perfect and polished, waves that are deconstructed and slept in, as well as diffused curls mimicking big hair of the eighties. In essence, roll out of bed and own that natural curl.


NAILS

Same as with eyeliner, nail art didn't seem to have any rules this season. While many nail trends made their way to the runway this Spring, negative space stood out as the trendsetter of the season. From a delicate petal pattern at the tips of the nails to a single strip on your ring finger, anything goes for nails in Spring 2018.
