At last, spring is on its way. After possibly the longest winter of all time, it’s time to pack away those cozy layers and muted color palettes and step out into the sunshine. Trust me—things are looking bright. It’s not just our wardrobes that will be embracing a cheery seasonal shift, either. Though I’m often conflicted about beauty trends—preferring instead a more year-round approach to skincare staples and tried-and-tested products—I’m definitely embracing a more playful approach to makeup and haircare for spring. After all, with brighter days ahead of us in all senses, what better time to step outside your comfort zone and enjoy a little beauty experimentation?
Ahead, I’ve spoken to experts in all things makeup, skincare, hair, and nails to narrow down the beauty trends that will be everywhere this spring. From rainbow color palettes and glossy skin to parting switch-ups and pastel nails, these are the trends that will look just as great on your Instagram feed as they do in real life.
