Want the perfect juxtaposition between classic glam and cool-girl vibes? Paint on some red nails and give yourself a smoky eye: It's one of the hottest Spring trends right now. If you're feeling bold, going out for a night on the town, or heading to a hot date, this is the look for you. Here's how to achieve it using our Treat Collection nail polishes and Lily Lolo Eye Palettes.
Get the Look
First, we recommend creating the perfect smoky espringye using the Smoke and Mirrors Lily Lolo Palette. This palette contains 8 highly pigmented shimmering and matte shadows. You can easily build and blend a dramatic eye without hassle. We suggest applying the lightest shade (Reflection – a matte ivory) towards the inner corner of your eye, the darkest shade on the outer eyelid (Intrigue – sheen, slate black). You can add a slight shimmer to your look wherever you see fit (preferably on the outer corner) using the shade Deception, a sparkly grey, black for a little more wow. Don't forget to finish off your smoky eye with some killer lashes (Lily Lolo Natural Mascara will do the trick).
When you're done perfecting your smoky eye look, it's time to do your nails! We love Treat Collection's red shade in Celebrity: it's a beautiful, glamorous colour that'll make your nails pop. It's fast drying, perfect for when you have somewhere to be. For best results, make sure to apply two coats of colour over a base coat. Your nails will look super glossy and last long after the night is over.
Another one of the biggest trends this Spring is flawless, glowing skin. While having perfect and fresh skin may be easy for some, it's not easy for everyone. That's where makeup really comes in and saves the day. We definitely recommend following a natural skincare routine on top of this for the best results. Here's how to achieve a beautiful fresh, glowing complexion using natural makeup.

Start by applying Lily Lolo Corrector to conceal any problem areas on your face. We recommend using the shade Blush Away to hide blemishes and redness or the shade PeepO to hide dark circles and pigmentation. Depending on which problem you have more of, choose one of the shades Blush Away or PeepO to get the job done.
After you've applied the loose powder to your skin, you can now add Lily Lolo's BB Cream in the shade of your choice (if you need heavier coverage, try using Studio 78 Paris We Oxygenize Chameleon Foundation). For added coverage, you can also top your liquid foundation with powder foundation (like Lily Lolo's Mineral Foundation), but this is optional.
Once your foundation is carefully blended in, apply some Lily Lolo Pressed Blush onto the apples of your cheeks for a slightly flushed pop. The shade In The Pink will work nicely for this look, giving your cheeks a rosy hue (a little goes a long way so don't overdo it and apply too much). Next, use Lily Lolo's Mineral Shimmer to create a luxuriously sheer, shimmering effect across your cheekbones, shoulders, and décolletage.
Finally, finish your look by dusting a little Lily Lolo Finishing Powder all over your face. This will absorb any excess oils and leave your skin absolutely flawless. It will give your makeup extra staying power all throughout the day (or night).
Who doesn't love beach tousled hair? It's super sexy and gives your hair a ton of volume. Beachy hair texture is also one of the biggest hair trends of Spring 2018. It's perfect for when you're out soaking up that beautiful Spring sun or off adventuring in the wilderness. Here's how to get beachy hair texture for yourself using our Rahua salt spray.

All you have to do to get the perfect beachy waves is use the Rahua Enchanted Island Salt Spray. The spray creates perfectly tousled wavy hair without needing to hit up the beach. Thanks to the natural pink sea salt in it, this spray will add texture and volume to your hair effortlessly. To use, just mist all over damp or dry hair from roots to ends. Then, tousle, scrunch and style any way you like. Thanks to the Guayaba sugars in this spray, your hair will also be left moisturized and soft – not dry and sticky. In addition, you'll smell like you just got back from a tropical vacation thanks to the Guayaba sugars and passion fruit scent. Who wouldn't want that?
One of the more unique Spring trends for 2018 has been the rise of under eye liner with a wing (and no top liner). This unique look will have all eyes on you, so be prepared for some serious attention. It's perfect for a night at the club or grabbing drinks with your girlfriends. Here's how to achieve the under eye liner look using our Lily Lolo eye liner pencil.
Get the Look
Using our classic eye liner pencil by Lily Lolo in the shade black, apply directly along the lower lash line. You'll want to create a nice solid line running from the bottom of your inner eye corner to the outer eye corner. Get it as close to the lash line as possible so there aren't any gaps. Do this on both eyes as evenly as possible. When you get to the outer eye corner, gently flick the liner up and out to create a slight wing. Repeat on the other eye. If you prefer, you can skip out on the wing for a simpler look. Either way, applying eyeliner only to your bottom lashes is bound to turn heads.
