Your 5 Must-Try Spring 2015 Makeup Trends

Fashion Week has come and gone, and finally spring is here! When it comes to spring makeup, we can tell that we definitely won't be seeing the same old boring colors or floral prints. Spring 2015 is filled with daring and surprising trends, and we've picked out some of our favorites from this year's Fashion Week to share with you. The looks that top our list include purple plum lips, the fine-lined cat eye, slightly kooky face embellishments, bold blue shadows, and makeup au naturel.

Here's what we think are the top 5 prettiest trends that you should try out this spring. Get inspired by our favorites and re-create them for yourself using YouCam Makeup!

1. Purple Plum Lipstick

While spring is typically a time for brighter colors, this year we're going bold with a wine-stained purple lip color. The berry cherry lips are trendy this spring, such as the lips we saw in Dolce & Gabbana's show. At Trussardi the models with plum lips also looked fresh and stylish. While I wasn't a fan of this color at first because of my pale skin, once I sampled the color I was hooked! Just be sure to play around with the color and tone of the plum lipstick you choose, just to make sure it matches your skin tone.

2. Fine Lines, Eyes of a Feline

We saw a love of the cat eye this year at Fashion Week, from the winged cat eye at Oscar de la Renta to the more abstract lines of Suno. While this look is classic, it is anything but boring. With YouCam Makeup, you can try on all different colors of liner and styles of cat eye (from thick and daring to thin and classic lines). For this look, we paired it with a simple light pink lip and light peach blush to keep the focus all about the eyes.

3. Pretty Little Face Embellishments

One of the surprising trends we saw this year was face embellishments. If you are feeling more playful but don't want to go completely costume, try adding a bit more artistic flair with a few hearts on your cheek or peacock feathers on your lids. But not to worry, you don't have to be a real artist to get these facial adornments. YouCam Makeup has many preset Looks (both traditional makeup and costume styles) including ones with facial tattoos and crazy lashes.

For this Look, I applied the Look "Lovestruck" to get the hearts, and then I toned down the eye shadows and lips for a more wearable style. To view all of our face embellishments, you can try out any of YouCam Makeup's preset looks. Simply open the YouCam Makeup app and click on "More" > "More Makeup" > "Looks" OR when you are inside the app playing with makeup simply click on "Looks" and click on "+" to see all preset looks.

4. Bright Bold Blues


If the other makeup trends are too toned down for you, this blazing blue trend will do the trick! The shades of azure on the upper and lower lids scream for attention. We saw graphic blue cat eye makeup at Honor and smudged light blue eye shadow at Emanuel Ungaro. To achieve this look, I played with the shades of blue and turquoise selecting the shadow style with color on the lower lid. A navy blue liner, light coating of mascara on top and bottom lashes and a matte nude lip complete the look. With this look, I'm feeling ready for a night out in high heels with friends! 

5. Barely There Natural Makeup

Wouldn't we all like to wake up looking flawless without makeup? If you weren't born with perfect skin, you can still achieve the minimal look and show off your healthy complexion with just a little foundation, blush and bronzer. We noted the nude makeup trend many times on the runway this year. We saw Donna Karan favor bronzed skin in an ode to summer, but Gucci kept the model's skin translucent and fresh by applying a foundation shade identical to the their natural skin tone. For this look, we evened out the skin tone by applying foundation and removing under-eye circles in the app. I then applied one of the natural makeup preset Looks calls "Office Lady" with a warm coral blush and eye shadow and pale pink lip.
