Lauren Andersen: Spring Makeup Tips

For the hottest spring makeup looks, Lauren Andersen is the gal that Amanda Seyfried and Jessica Alba turn to for photo shoots and red carpet moments. She was here today to show us the 3 most requested looks.

3 Spring Trends you can do yourself!
  • All About the Lip
  • If there is one trend for spring, it is the bold lip. I am all about the lip.
  • And for spring, I love playing with color! Bold brights—pinks, plums and berries.
  • I love Avon's new Ultra Color Indulgence Lipstick—not only because the formula is made with a hydrating gel, so it hydrates lips and leaves them incredibly smooth especially as the temperatures heat up, but the lipstick comes in 12 shades so you can have fun with color.
  • Everyone always asks me how to get the Kylie Jenner lip. The trick to that look is using a lip liner over the actual lip line and then filling in with the pencil.
Liquid Eyeliner for Fine Lines
  • Winged eyeliner has been a staple for decades, and now we are seeing almost everywhere this season.
  • Black liquid liner went from clean and slightly flicked at Oscar de la Renta to exaggeratedly winged-out at Saint Laurent and Cushnie et Ochs.
  • I love that this look also helps to hide fine lines as it calls for extending the liner on the lid.
  • Start at the middle of the lid and begin with little dashed toward the outer corner of the eye. Doing it in dashes and not one long swoop gives you more control.
  • Using one hand to hold your brow up to make the skin taut will allow that you get as close to the lash line as possible.
  • The go back to the center of the eyes and draw short dashes toward the inner corner of the eye.
  • To finish off the look and make sure the line looks clean, I would dip a Q-tip in makeup remover and sweep around the black line.
Bronzed Contoured Cheekbones
  • Contouring has become a beauty buzz word, with online tutorials popping up, teaching women everywhere how makeup can be used to enhance bone structure, cheekbones, hide perfections, etc. I am going to show you how to do it right.
  • Prep your face with two shades of base—a foundation that's a shade lighter than your skin tone and one that is a shade darker.
  • Use the darker base on the areas you want to contour—underneath your cheekbones, your temples, jawline, sides of the nose, etc. and smudge.
  • Then using the lighter base, apply to the areas you want to highlight—center of the forehead, tops of the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, etc.
  • Blend the two shades for a flawless finish. You can use a dense flat brush to buff out the two shades.
