9 Fresh Beauty Ideas for Spring

And how to recreate them.

April showers may have brought us May flowers, but today Couturesque is serving up some beauty inspiration that you can use rain or shine! We’ve plucked and pruned through our favourite Instagram-approved looks and curated a selection of our faves, just for you.

Whether you love a good matte lip or a dewy wet-look highlight, there's something in this edit for everyone; we've even recommended products to #gethelook! As always, there is room to customize each look, so feel free to get inspired and put your own spin on things.  If you decide to try out any of these trends, be sure to tag us @couturesquemag using the hashtag #couturesquelooks and #beautyesque - we'll be watching!

You don't have to wait until summer to get silky glowing skin. Get a whole body glow with the Benefit Hoola Zero Tanlines Body Bronzer ($30 at BenefitCosmetics.com)

A bright pop of pink is perfect in the spring, as proven by Madelynn. Mix up your daily eye routine with any bright pink shadow all over the lid and a healthy dose of mascara.

Starting with a fresh face, Olivia shows us that the real glow comes from within! Stay fresh and dewy with the help of the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist ($58 at Sephora).

Brushy brows and braids are #blessed. Neelam’s luscious locks are inspiration station atm!

A little swish of orange or peach on the lids has a high impact, so coordinate your colour family choices, just like Hannah did. Isn’t she such a peach?

Diana is making us all blush! Her glowy skin, nude-pink lips, and a touch of apricot blush radiate like the heavens. It's her that you see, not the makeup!

Bianca complements her hair with matching matte pink-mauve lips.  We like NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream ($9 at NYXCosmetics.ca) in Milan.

Spring showers have you in a funk? Not anymore! Wet hair has never looked so good. Whether you are fresh out of the ocean or got caught in the rain, Dailiperez shows us just how sexy and effortless it can be.

Bright liner goes a long way. Choose any colour you love— white, blue, pink, metallic! The lovely Karen also pairs it with a soft highlight.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
