Spring symbolizes new beginnings, making it a great time to try something new with your look. Whether it's a trendy hairstyle or a new makeup, consider this your infallible guide to all things beautiful this season.
When it comes to your makeup, it's all about looking fresh and accentuating your youth. Gone is the harsh liner and flat faces of winter; this spring, aim for dewy skin, soft eyes, blushing cheeks, and girly pink lips. A subtle smokey eye for nighttime events will take your look from natural to sophisticated in little time. Set down the tweezers -- full brows have been in style for a couple years and are much more flattering than their overplucked counterparts. And if makeup isn't your thing, don't worry -- spring is the perfect season to go for the natural look.
Quick Tip: Sweep highlighting powder across your cheekbones to really brighten your face.
The new season gives all of us an opportunity to change up our hairstyle. These ideas are great if you don't want to commit to a drastic cut or color change (which could turn out scarier than a horror movie, honestly). Braids were big in 2012 and they're still a hit this year. (If you're still stuck on one technique, expand your braid know-how with a fishtail braid or a messy side braid.) Hair accessories, which I collect like a proud hoarder, aren't for little girls anymore -- try grown-up pieces with a messy braid like Blake Lively (below). Try a top-knot, low pony, or messy waves, because who really wants to go through the trouble to get perfect hair? This season, a lazy-hair attitude is tres chic.
