As we quickly approach summer, there's a lot to look forward to — warmer weather, more sunny days and new beach adventures. But even before those pleasures begin, we get to enjoy Sakura season, which happens towards the tail-end of spring.
Sakura, or cherry blossoms, are the national flower of Japan (there’s a big festival in Tokyo to ring in the season), but they bloom all over the world around mid-April and May. The pink flower is often said to be a symbol of optimism and the transience of life. But, the cherry blossom is also used in many forms of art, such as film, music, and even beauty, making it the perfect inspiration for makeup.
If you’ve looked at your feed lately, you might’ve seen pink makeup looks to welcome the new season. Check out some of our favorite looks that channel the cheerful spirit of cherry blossom season.
1. A Smudged Pink Lip
If you want to try something inspired by the cherry blossom but prefer to keep it a little natural, adding a pink lip to your usual look is the perfect choice. Overdraw your lipstick slightly and buff it out to draw more emphasis to your lips.
A matte liquid lip is the best choice to create this smudged effect — we recommend the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Dose of Rose. You can also add a blush in a coordinating color, like the L'Oreal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Radiant Satin Blush in Rosewood, to create a subtle all-over pink effect.
2. Dewy Eyeshadow
For something more overstated, you can add glossy lips and highlighter to an intense eyeshadow to take your look to the next level.
Start off with a palette that includes multiple metallic pink shades for more depth, such as the L’Oréal Paris Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Avenue Des Roses, and then add a silver toned highlighter to the high points of the cheeks, inner corners, and under the brow bone. Finish it off with a sheer pink-toned gloss, like the L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Lip Balm-in-Gloss.
