Red lipstick is a staple of every season, but this spring’s shade of choice is rich and radiant with a satin finish. Lipstick Queen’s new Saint & Sinner Lip Tint in deep red fits the bill perfectly and can be worn alone or as a primer to your favorite lipstick. $24 at lipstickqueen.com
EYES ON THE PRIZE
During the spring and summer months, lighten up your smoky eyes with help from Aveda’s Indian Sunset collection. Use the Petal Essence Eye Color Trio in Copper Haze to paint on a warm satiny base before blending the Eye Definer in Violet Blossom into both lash lines for subtle drama. $27 and $17 at Sonrisa Salon in Kansas City and Xiphium in Leawood
Stila’s new Aqua Glow Serum Foundation comes with a trio of benefits: It moisturizes the skin thanks to its combination of hyaluronic acid, ionized water and minerals; minimizes the appearance of imperfections with light-deflecting color pigments; and offers medium to full coverage with a natural, easy-to-blend finish. $45 at Beauty Brands locations
Mascara often goes missing from high-fashion runways, where colorful liners and sparkly lids reign supreme. But this season, long, luscious lashes are in full demand. Thankfully, Osmosis Colour Mineral Cosmetics’ new Curling Mascara—armed with an anti-gravity cobra head—is built to fan out and curl up lashes in a single swipe. $22 at beautystoredepot.com
It may be too early to put away your winter wardrobe, but at least your fingers can look like spring. Deborah Lippmann’s Afternoon Delight Spring Collection is built on shades that are bright (The Pleasure Principle and Peaches & Crème pop in lilac and peach), light (Dirty Little Secret offers a sheer greige), and sophisticated (Get Lucky in a sage blue).
