As we welcome a new season, there’s no better time to experiment with some new makeup looks. Here are the top makeup trends that you should know about this spring.

Beauty experts around the country are saying that spring 2023 is all about freshfaced minimalism with a touch of glam. This means keeping the skin simple, clean and modern, with high-impact colour pops on the eyes, lips and cheeks.


To achieve a minimalist base, use a lightweight foundation with light coverage or try a tinted moisturiser, then add touches of concealer only where needed to keep the skin looking really clean. Use a luminous translucent powder on oil-prone areas only, avoiding the whole face, which will keep the skin looking fresh, dewy and full of moisture.

A subtle but colourful eye is on trend for the daytime this spring, so play with soft pastels like pale pink, lilac and baby blue. Then, for a chic evening look and to really play up the maximum impact vibe, make your eyes dramatic with rich and bold pigments, like shimmer, glitter and intense metallics, alongside a strong graphic or brightly coloured eyeliner like blue or green.


This season it’s all about a super bold lip against a minimal face. Think vibrant reds, deep plums and bright pinks to really make a statement. If bold colours on your lips aren’t your thing, then try an uber shiny, tinted glossy lip instead – it’s a look that is making a strong comeback this spring.

Bold blushes are back in a big way this season – think pinks, vibrant corals and bronze hues – so don’t be shy and try one alongside a striking or glossy lip. If you really want to elevate your look, try the same shade on both cheeks and lips. Multi-use products like lip-and-cheek tints have been taking centre stage for some time now, not just for ease and convenience, but when used together can really create a cohesive and polished synergy across the face. Finish with a light touch of liquid highlighter on cheekbones to complete the look.


Natural-looking brows are always on trend, and that continues into spring 2023 and beyond. Keep your brows fluffy and groomed, and don’t overdo it with tweezers or over shaping.
