Bold, bright, and gold. Spring 2011’s makeup trends are a breath of fresh air – and yes, a little sunshine too.

Updating your look can often be as easy as changing your lipstick and that holds true for spring 2011. Bold lips make a statement this season, in bright red, pink, and coral shades. Get the look with Nvey Eco’s Organic Lipstick, #369, or Revolution Organics Lip Gloss in Freedom and Truth, and pair your hot lips with natural eye makeup and a chic ponytail.

However, bold lips aren’t the only source of glamour this spring – bright eye popping shadows are in full-effect for 2011.

If you’re a rookie when it comes to colorful eye makeup, remember that choosing a contrasting shadow can really make your eye color pop. For example, since orange and blue are complementary colors, coral shades will really bring out your baby blues. The same goes for purple hues if you have green eyes, or blue shades if you have brown eyes.

Gold tones in lipstick, eye shadow and blush provide a slightly more natural take on the otherwise bold spring style. Create a dramatic evening look by layering metallic shadow across the lids to the corner of your eye. Or, for a daytime look that’s still right on trend, simply brush a little gold shadow into your eye’s crease. Alima Pure’s line of Luminous Shimmer Shadow has lots of glistening shades to choose from.

Prefer a more natural look? Beautiful skin is always in fashion and Living Nature’s Luminous Pressed Powder contains natural minerals that give your skin a lovely subtle glow. For an easy, sun-kissed look for spring, Dr.Hauschka’s Warm Breeze color palette has everything you need – from eye shadow to lip tint!

Kiss the winter blues goodbye, and get ready to embrace the bright and bold colors of spring!
