A lot of us around the country are suffering from winter fatigue at this point. Rest assured, spring is on it’s way. We spring forward into daylight savings time on Sunday and the first official day of spring is March 20. While there are still snow showers predicted here in Chicago, the days are getting longer and the sun seems a little brighter. This season is all about starting anew so it’s a great time to try new products. Luckily, you don’t have to break the bank to try the latest in makeup, nails, hair, and skincare when there are some fantastic, budget-friendly products available at your local drugstore.
Visit the slideshow for 10 of the hottest spring beauty trends and affordable products to help you get the look for less.
10 Under $10 – Hottest Spring Beauty Trends 1 of 11
I am patiently waiting for spring in L'Oreal Paris Gel Lacquer Liner, Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids Lipcolor in Electric Orange, and Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel in Sorbet.
Shimmer Shadows 2 of 11
The great thing about shimmery shadows is that they work well on their own, making eye makeup a snap. Cream shadows in metallic or rose are especially pretty for spring.
Try Flower Power Color Play Cream Eyeshadow in Awesome Blossom $7.98
Vibrant Orange Lips 3 of 11
This hot look was all over the runways at New York Fashion Week. If the color seems too bold for your taste, try a sheer formula. But I encourage you to try a brilliant hue. Orange is more wearable than you think and at these prices, you can afford to experiment.
Try Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids Lipcolor in Electric Orange $5.99 or Maybelline Color Whisper in Orange Attitude $4.97
Highlighter 4 of 11
If you haven't tried using a highlighter yet, you should. Just a hint of luminosity on a few areas like cheekbones, brow bones, and the bridge of your nose looks really pretty and youthful.
Try CoverGirl TruMagic The Luminizer $9.59
Messy Textured Hair 5 of 11
This mom-friendly trend is super easy to create. Just scrunch in some curl enhancing product, twist a few sections, and allow hair to air dry.
Try OGX Smooth Hydration Argan Oil & Shea Butter Curl Enhancing Yogurt $6.39
Pastel Orange Nails 6 of 11
This softer take on the season's hottest shade reminds me of a creamsicle. If orange just isn't your thing, try other muted versions of brights like teal with a hint of grey, lilac, or mint green.
Try Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel in Sorbet $7.99
Face Sheet Masks 7 of 11
