Say goodbye to the fluffy brow, makeup artist and educator, Nick Lujan recently informed Byrdie, revealing that the barely-there brow is back.

But this doesn’t necessarily mean you have to ditch your brow gel for tweezers. There have been many versions of the minimalist brow look seen on runways all over the world – from bleached brows to thinly tweezed and shaped ones.

Known as The Euphoria Effect, the embellishment and facial jewel obsession is set to continue long into the forseeable future.

Rose gold foil, as seen on the Simone Rocha runway in London, is also an artsy update on previous Euphora-inspired looks from past seasons.

With mask restrictions lifting, it’s no surprise that people want to sport their best puck. In fact, luxe lip looks are back in a big way, makeup artist Ashley Rebeeca told Byrdie. Whether it’s lip gloss or lipstick, shiny lips add a glam touch to any look.

While the classic red lip has never stopped trending, it’s certainly had a revamp this spring. From the grunge colour influence to the smudged from the centre aesthetic, there’s certainly more than one way to wear red (and it doesn’t have to be polished).

This spring, you can ditch the contour kit and apply blush to accentuate your features. This is a great method for those wanting to play up their cheekbones or add warmth to the nose.

“Using blush instead of a sculpt shade to accentuate your cheek adds life, colour, and sheen to your complexion,” said Lujan. “This contouring method also tends to create a more natural finished look. Contouring with your blush eliminates one step in the makeup application and allows for your natural bone structure to shine.”

In addition to using blush instead of contour, blush has become bolder than ever before. Models have been spotted indulging their dressed up looks in draped, bold blush, with some even refreshing the face with brightening swirls on the apples of the cheeks.
