Fearless pops of color are in the air this season, from seemingly every good runway show to Kehinde Wiley's groundbreaking presidential portrait. Our favorite beauty brands are right on point, too, with bright on-trend hues for lips, eyes and nails.
We asked the photographer and candid Instagram beauty reviewer @gelcream to capture some of our most colorful beauty products for spring.
Cool tone eyeshadow is back this season in the biggest way in decades. It's updated here with good-for-you ingredients and light-catching iridescents, too. RMS uses only natural and organic ingredients in every product it makes, while the formulation of Kjaer Weis' eyeshadow in Green Depth is a paraben-free, vegan, antioxidant, and collagen-generating elixir that is beautifully green both literally and figuratively.
The human eye is especially sensitive to red-orange. As a result, we're naturally drawn to hues that fall between vermillion and tangerine. Make a strong visual statement with luxury lipsticks in red-orange by Rodin and its awesomely-named Tough Tomato, as well as a Tangerine shade from the MAKE/Maryam Nassir Zadeh collaboration.
Even the most versatile tools in your kit should make a statement: these palettes are bold yet are ideal for everyday use. RMS' Signature Set in Pop was designed by makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift with a burst of vermilion and a luminizer, bronzer, and balms in complementary tones. MAKE's palette, designed in collaboration with Maryam Nassir Zadeh, is four matte cream lipsticks and four matte cream eyeshadows in a bold palette that perfectly captures the essence of the season.
