Pretty in Pastels1 of 9
By Rachel Hayes
With pale coral shadows, soft pink blushes and light lavender lips, the spring runways were awash in pretty pastels. Some looks were very subdued, while others packed a powerful punch. Glo shows you how to wear the trend with our eight favorite spring makeup picks.
Mellow Yellow2 of 9
Swipe this golden creamy shadow stick across your lids to get a gorgeous gilded effect. This brand-new formula is longwearing and water-resistant, yet still super-easy to blend. You can even try using a liner brush to apply just a thin stroke along upper lash lines—a hot trend this season.

Orange You Glad?3 of 9
Nothing says "Spring is here!" like a pop of coral. This season, try a sheer wash of this happy hue on your eyes. Use a shimmer-free matte shadow, and to keep eyes from looking irritated, select a color that isn't too red. This fresh, peachy shade is perfect.

Pucker Up5 of 9
Matte lips are one of spring's strongest trends, and this new powdery-pink lip color creates just the right (read: wearable) effect. The semi-matte formula gives the coverage of a classic lipstick, but its formula, including aloe and vitamin E, gives it a creamy, easy-to-apply consistency.
SHOP NOW: Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick in Stormy Pink, $8
Stunning Sunset6 of 9
Mixing pink with purple may sound like a 7-year-old's choice, but these soft, shimmery hues are totally sophisticated. This duo includes Purple Haze, a lavender shade, and Pink Horizon, a peachy-pink hue. Wear the shadows alone or use the lighter one as a highlighter and the darker shade to contour your creases.
SHOP NOW: Mally Evercolor Modern Matte Eyeshadow Duo in Sunset, $30
Mauve Moment7 of 9
Spotted on multiple runways was a decidedly '90s mauve lip. For a less dramatic take on the trend, try this sheer tinted lip balm. It may look dark purple in the tube, but the resulting hue is subtle and glistening. Added bonus? Its oil-based formula contains shea butter, making it a moisturizing treat for lips too.
SHOP NOW: Lancôme Baume in Love in Midnight Rose, $26
Blue Note8 of 9
Everything '80s is making a comeback—and that includes the decade's signature eye-shadow hue. Sweep a cool Caribbean Sea turquoise across your lids, but don't blend it up any farther than your creases (that's too retro-dramatic). Instead, keep the color concentrated around you lash lines.
SHOP NOW: MAC Eyeshadow in Aquadisiac, $15
The Color of Money9 of 9
Emerald green is the color of 2013, according to the experts at Pantone. This lush hue symbolizes an economy on the rise and all things eco-friendly. As for its place in your beauty routine, a touch of green can infuse your look with energy and confidence. The best way to wear it? On your lids, paired with shimmery nude hues, for a sultry spring look.
