Hello there 🙂
Spring just sprang up like this. After a long and cozy season full of layers and atmospheric colors, Team Who What Wear is always the first to get on the train for warm weather. And it's not just the rising temperature that makes us dizzy. It is the fresh harvest of beauty trends that we try IRL with. If the onset of longer daylight is not enough to kick-start the winter blues, we can assure you that the influx of bright and glowing beauty themes this season will banish any remaining cool vibrations. Our basic beauty slogans remain pretty stable all year round, but there's only one thing at the turn of the season that inspires us to jump into all of the hair, makeup, and brand new that we've seen on the catwalk, the red carpet and even the gram. And at the moment there is a wide range of exciting movements to see.
Keep scrolling to read all about the most exciting beauty waves we'll ride in spring. Make a note of your favorites and browse through our selection of the best beauty purchases to get every look.
Parts lined with pearls and gemstones meet accessories and styling products dripping in 24-carat shimmer. While hair accessories such as clips, headbands and hair clips have been gaining ground for some time, our favorite stars and designers have steered the trend forward (compared to the 90s) with particularly chic and sparkling accents. To make it more portable, we recommend a light sprinkling of pearls or balls set with jewels, a strategically placed headband (with crystals!) Or a glossy gloss spray for the minimalist. Embed pretty, individual pearls in your bun, along your side or anywhere. These turn and stop. Not in legitimate splendor? This strategic hair fog from R + Co quenches thirsty strands with nutrient-rich, light oils and gives your style a subtle shine. (Tip: Extend your spray to the chest and collarbone.) Decorate your braid or bangs with a shimmering line of pink Swarovski crystals. Lelet NY is THE place to buy the most beautiful jewelry for sparkling strands. From elegant chignons to French twists spiced up with Old Hollywood glamor, classic hairstyles ensure a modern revival. The difference? Subtle styling changes like a tendril à la Scarlett Johansson or exuberant ends like the low chignons that we saw at Noor by Noor. Finger waves and winning roles inspired by the 1940s are on the table as well as a retro pixie restart, as seen at Zoë Kravitz. Don't underestimate the power of a well-placed hairpin that matches your hair color for ultimate camouflage – from chignons to twists. These pens from Kitsch have an industrial fit and are available in black, brown and blonde. Hairspray is not negotiable. L’Oréal’s is a cult classic among hair enthusiasts and prominent hairdressers. All you have to do is choose your holding level. This brilliant device from Invisibobble eliminates all previous growing pains associated with the perfect bun or knot. From chin-frame bobs with a helmet-like hug to mullets and shags you thought you would never see again, the industry is making noises for styles and cuts that were previously prohibited. In terms of styling, less is definitely more when it comes to these iconic cuts. Stick to a diffuser, dry shampoo, or texture spray when you're on the mullet or shag path, and a flat iron and shimmer heat protector when you're on board with sleek bobs and lobs. A tidy, uncomplicated texture is paramount, and Oribe's classic formula is the one worth getting a zero-stick maximum must finish for mullets and shags. Don't underestimate the power of an iron. Not only is it key to creating the most elegant styles, it can also enhance your natural ends and waves for more shaggy, vintage-inspired styles. Heat protection is not an option. This is a necessity if you want to thermally damage your strands. This dark horse formula is a favorite of stylists and the crème de la crème among the fussy beauty editors. As a bonus, it also smells incredible. The influence of Euphoria eye makeup has dominated since the show's debut last summer, but it looks like the trend is getting a retro-inspired remix this season. Highly effective, shiny lids, which are decorated with tons of glitter, are retained. Only now do we see her with a more glamorous vintage Hollywood touch. If you want to put yourself in a full drama this spring, look no further. When it comes to full power disco ball eyes, Lemonhead.LA is definitely your product. These vegan and cruelty-free formulas cover every lid of the most dreamy sheet of glittering goodness with a single swipe. If chunky glitter is not your jam, but you still want to shine with the best, we recommend a finely ground, pressed shadow as in Róen's neatly arranged quad pallets. You still get that shiny, wet, sparkling effect, but without the heaviness of a thicker glitter. This quick-drying liquid eyeshadow is perfect for a quick and easy touch of glamor. The doe foot applicator makes it very easy to use and the formula is intensely shiny with the perfect amount of mixed glitter. Gone are the days when Malibu Barbie was equated with a pink face slap. Expect not-sick, totally chic pink makeup to be the focus this spring. Think of high-voltage neon lids and blushing shades that are elegantly rinsed over lips, cheeks and eyes (bonus points for taking over all three at the same time). We wear pink on Wednesdays – and actually every day. Whether you prefer crisp highlighters or a lively flush, these highly pigmented shadows will get you there. Pro Tip: Use a damp, angled brush (we like the angled eyeliner brush for $ 24) to create a pink cat eye that doesn't move all day. Pink lips don't have to be sugar-sweet. This clean, buildable lip color from Rituel de Fille is the right stick if you want effortless pink pop. Cream Blush is our favorite for a seamless flush on the cheeks. But who should say that you can't stretch it on your eyelids and lips to get an ethereal, all-over tint? The OG make-up range from Glossier, Cloud Paint, is light, malleable and extremely mixable. The sky is the limit when it comes to this season's eyelash aesthetics. From the red carpet to the runway, we see exaggerated fakes and spread spider eyelashes that cause us to immediately apply a few more layers of mascara. And just because eyelashes make a statement doesn't mean you have to rely on a maximalist approach. Delicate, well-defined edges look just as impressive. For long, defined eyelashes that are lifted from the root to the top, use this magical mascara. The slim brush is designed to lightly coat the lower lashes and the hard-to-access lashes in the corners of the eyes, so you can get a serious definition with less effort. Judging by the perfect, fluttering eyelashes that Rihanna sees when she sports, when she blesses us with her website, we can only assume that her mascara standards are high. The mascara that she launched this year under her Fenty Beauty line conveys the full, long and black eyelashes for which she frankly expresses a deep love. If you want a little more momentum (or a lot more momentum) in the eyelash department, fakes are the way to go. Individuals like these classic Ardell options are very versatile and allow you to add length and volume wherever you need it. It takes a little longer to apply than your simple stripe, but you end up gaining so much control over the final look. Get creative with the placement and watch how your eyelash game changes from everyday to editorial in no time at all. The length of these claws is negotiable because not everyone can handle the drama at Cynthia Erivo level in everyday life, but claw-shaped tips will remain this spring. Customize the trend to your liking by changing the shape (tips can be angular, sharp, or rounded) and choosing any type of print, pattern, or ornament of your choice. We have noticed a trend towards animal motifs such as snakeskin and leopard, in addition to many jewels, pearls, glitter and even chains. According to some of the best nail artists in the industry, the craft store is the best place to find inspiration and decor. Claws set with crystals feel less intimidating when pressed open. In addition, the pretty almond shape does not slow typing. From rivets to rhinestones, this kit has everything you need for a shiny manicure. Use this handy tool to easily select your stones and press them into damp polish before sealing the store with a top coat. A minimalist manicure with a love for slim, polished details is the opposite of the claw trend, which has also overtaken the runways, the red carpet and Instagram. Not a long nailed person? We have become poetic about the best nail colors, but we love the flexibility of this trend. Go solid with a real nude or other classic tones like black or white. Or embellish your short manicure with neon, metallics, trimmings or stickers. The sky can still be the limit in terms of decor, even if you opt for a shorter nail length this season. The coveted kit by Violet Gray contains everything you could ever need for a manicure at home. Nail stickers are cool again, folks, and Olive & June consistently brings the fanciest designs to the market. Affix the sticker of your choice to add a little more interest to a minimal manicure aesthetic this year. We are obsessed with this kit, which not only contains stickers, but also Olive & June's best-selling rose gold lacquer and top coat. Prepare for the shiny, long-lasting finish of your dreams. Not only are Essie's newest products less toxic, they are also quick-drying, super-glossy and extremely durable. Get shadows because we predict that your short nails will be as obsessed as we are. Back with all their might, the French manicures have regained their je sais quoi thanks to bold color alternatives and imaginative arches. Of course, the textbook combination with white tips and a transparent base is an elegant option, but there is plenty of experimentation and creativity with vivid, unexpected colors such as black or neon, even double-dipped tips, nail beds or a few rhinestones thrown to a good degree. A super sparkling tip is one of the coolest ways to try out the trend for 2020. We are obsessed with everything from ILNP. If you prefer to work without a sticker, this double-ended tool comes in a clutch to create all kinds of arches and lines that are perfect for French manicures. Orly's ingenious kit takes the frustration out of a French situation at home.
