Celebrate the start of the new season with eyeshadows, lipsticks, and blushes inspired by spring flowers.
Spring has sprung! The cold, blustery winter months are officially behind us. It is time to bring on the sandals, breezy maxi dresses, and cheerful colors. It’s not just your wardrobe; you should be updating for the new season. Your beauty routine could also do with a refresher. There are lots of new launches to update your makeup bag with, but why not stick with a spring theme? And what could be more spring than flowers? There are enough flower-themed makeup products to fill a bouquet with. There are ones that get their names and colors from flowers; then there are those whose packaging is borrowed from the blooms.
Celebrate spring with these 11 makeup products inspired by flowers:
1. Ultra HD Lipstick in Geranium
You will probably think about roses and tulips before geraniums, but do not forget about the pretty bloom. This look-at-me lippy is just the thing to brighten up your look. It is formulated with wax-free technology for a true color look.
2. Nail Polish in Tulip
Zoya’s Spring 2016 nail lacquer collection is called “Petals,” so you can probably guess what it has been inspired by. You cannot go wrong with the classic “Tulip” shade. It is a creamy salmon pink and has a very faint sheen to mimic the finish of the actual flower.
3. Paul & Joe Face & Eye Color Papillons de Printemps
Get a load of this gorgeous palette. This is like a mini artwork. There is even a cat on it! However, it has stuff that you can actually use on your face. It contains a brown and a fresh green shadow and a cheery pink blush.
4. Lip & Cheek Bloom in Hydrangea No. 03
This versatile product earns points for its name and its shade. In fact, all of the shades in the collection have flower names. This pink shade adds a subtle flush to your lips and cheeks. When you dip your finger in the pot, the airy texture makes it as pleasant as touching an actual flower petal.
5. Spring Reveries Nail Polish in Build Me Up Buttercup
This buttercup isn’t going to let you down. It’s a mellow yellow that is as easy to wear as your go-to nude nail polish. The formula contains biotin, green tea extract, and aucoumea and dries super quick.
6. Rose Powder Blush in 01 Romantic Rose
This blush ticks all of the theme boxes. Flower design? Check. Flower product name? Check. Flower shade name? Check. It’s so pretty that you will almost not want to use it, thanks to the embossed rose design.
7. FlowerColor Eyeshadow Refills in Heather
This shadow is actually infused with flower wax, the delicate coating that protects flower petals from the elements. It helps the shadow stay put while keeping the skin moisturized. The eyeshadow is also naturally-preserved, gluten-free, and vegan.
8. Eye Shadow in Bloom
This shadow doesn’t even need to have a specific flower name. It looks like it would be right at home in any garden, given its pretty purple color. You don’t have to worry about the shimmery shadow fading, thanks to the long-lasting formula.
9. Cheek Pop in Pansy Pop
If you take away the top of the container, you could almost think that it is a real flower. However, a real flower won’t look quite as pretty if you rub it on your cheeks. This blush gives you a wash of color that will wake up your tired complexion.
10. Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette
With the exception of “Flower Child,” the individual shadow names may not have flower-themed names, but the palette does, so it makes it onto the list. Plus, the packaging is decorated with a beautiful flower design, and the 12 shadows are just as pretty.
11. Lipstick in Lily Lake
Are you the sort of girl who likes to wear dark lipstick regardless of the season? This moody shade is for you. The lippy is formulated with red raspberry seed oil and moringa oil to keep your lips soft. Just like flowers, it is 100% natural.
