Makeup is currently 'more feminine than ever'

Makeup is currently
This spring is seeing fresher, softer and 'more feminine than ever' makeup trends, with both creamy and bright colours being fashionable.

Makeup artist Doug Atkinson told The Sudbury Star that both flirtatious and more subtle, understated colours are in fashion at the moment.

Rosy pinks, sherbet-like shades of orange and apricot, and sheer melons and corals should all be in your natural makeup bag, as they are key colours for lips and nails at the moment, he said.

Pale, pinky-beige and lilac shades are also popular for the lips, although you need to have a certain depth of skin tone to be able to wear them, Mr Atkinson added.

Beauty expert Jenn Falik has told CBS' The Early Show that women should use a semi-sheer natural lipstick when going for a bold pout as this is more workable.

If you feel washed out in pastel colours, Mr Atkinson recommended opting for a bronzer. You can get this product from a natural makeup range to create a sun-kissed look that will make soft shades look more wearable.
