The 7 Best Spring Lipsticks


The prettiest accessory you can wear this season? A great new shade of lipstick! And if you’re ready to scoop up some new ones, the seven must-have colors below are the key shades you’ll want to have in your spring wardrobe. Best part: You can find them all in the new Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick line, which comes in ten gorgeous shades each infused with vitamin E, jojoba oil, and collagen. Swipe them on and your lips will be vibrant, soft, and ready for all those sunny days ahead.

1) Peach

If you like pink, you’ll love her spring-y little sister, peach. We especially love this fresh, juicy shade (our current fave: Mellow Melon) worn with matching blush on the apples of the cheeks for a monochromatic, peaches-and-cream look that instantly perks up your entire face.

2) Fuchsia

A bright, pinky-purple-y magenta like Spring Lilac makes an instant statement. Swipe it on straight from the tube for maximum impact, or pat it on with your finger for a slightly more subdued effect. So hot!

3) Nude

The right nude lipstick is a veritable shape-shifter, equally at home paired with smoky eyes for a sultry feel or worn alone for a more minimal, barely-there look. But the wrong nude can make you look washed out, or—even worse—like you painted your lips with concealer! To keep the effect flattering (and super sexy!), always go for a tawny shade with a slight sheen like Nude Truffle.

4) Soft pink

If nudes makes you feel a bit too naked, consider a neutral pink lipstick like Peony Blush. This go-with-everything shade adds a hint of subtle color that’s just right for the office, but with an added touch of face-brightening warmth to keep things feminine and pretty.

5) Red

A bold, fire-engine crimson like Candy Red is classic, sophisticated, and so, so sexy. It’s also surprisingly versatile. Pair it with a swoop of black liquid liner for a femme fatale effect or keep your face bare (save for soft blush and lots of mascara) and let your red-hot lips take center stage.

6) Berry

Red lips are a perennial evening favorite, sure, but if you’re looking for a new twist, consider a deep wine like Berry Sangria instead. Bonus: Berry lips work for every skin tone—beautifully!

7) Rose

Sweet, romantic, and just plain pretty, a rich pink like Playful Rose brings a bright pop of color to your face that feels delicate, not overwhelming.

Fresh-Faced Makeup Made Easy


avon-fresh-faced-makeup-avon-cat-search Super dark shades and heavy makeup textures can feel wrong this time of year. So, lighten up! Beautiful makeup—that highlights a beautiful complexion—is what you want right now. And it’s easy to achieve! The clear, healthy, glowing look is all about a mix of proper, radiance-focused skincare, plus a few key makeup tips. Here’s how to put your freshest face forward.

1. Treat.

A fresh-faced makeup look is all about a great-looking complexion, so a good skin-care routine is a must. Your goal: plump, hydrated skin. Your tactic: scheduling a date a few times each week to quench with a sheet mask. Try Avon ANEW Brightening Sheet Mask, which contains white pearl essence to brighten, plus skin-beautifying vitamins, minerals, and proteins.

2. Hydrate and glow.

Makeup looks more natural and lasts longer on well-moisturized skin, so smooth on a rich cream every morning. Bonus points: Look for one with radiance-boosting ingredients to reduce spots, plus sunscreen to help keep new ones from forming. We like Avon nutraeffects Radiance Day Cream SPF 20. It’s packed with chia seeds (a superfood ingredient that’s high in omega 3 fatty acids and can hold 12 times its weight in water) and bird of paradise seed to brighten.

3. Apply foundation.

It’s fresh-faced makeup’s best friend, downplaying blemishes, evening tone, and perfecting the skin. Just don’t be too heavy-handed! You want the end result to look like skin—not like makeup—so opt for a lightweight liquid formula that’s very natural looking such as Avon True Color Flawless Liquid Foundation. Use a brush or sponge to apply it, starting towards the center of your face where most people usually need the most coverage, then blend outwards until the edges fade away.

4. Go au natural on eyes.

Neutral, found-in-nature shades of shadow keep the focus on your gorgeous skin, so look for a softly shimmery champagne, tan, or beige. We like Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette in Nude Muse. Then, swipe on a few quick coats of mascara. A clump-free formula like Avon Super Extend Nourishing Mascara keeps the look defined, but still totally natural.

5. Add a pop of color.

Bright pink or peach blush instantly livens up your entire face. For the freshest look, opt for creamy formulas like Avon True Color Be Blushed Cheek Color—they’ll add a natural, born-with-it flush that won’t get chalky or cakey. Swirl the color on the apples of your cheeks, then blend well with your fingers.

6. Love your lips.

Finish with a soft rose or neutral pink lipstick. These your-lips-but-better shades look feminine, pretty, and totally natural. We like the universally flattering Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Playful Rose.
