Spring Makeup from e.l.f. Creative Director Achelle Dunaway

What's hot this spring as far as your makeup is concerned?  Achelle Dunaway, Creative Director and Makeup Artist for e.l.f. cosmetics says that super bold brights are making a comeback in a big way.  Neon pinks, oranges, greens and yellows in clothing to accessories and Dunaway says "It's easy to incorporate these trends into our beauty routines as long as you follow a few simple rules."  Below, shares her favorite looks and how-to's for beauty mavens and novices alike:

The Bolder, The Better! 
"This season is all about striking shades," says Dunaway.  "Whether the focus is on eyes, lips or nails, stick with bold color choices and don't be afraid to choose funky shades to create a fun and multidimensional look.  I like to pair they yellow and pink hues from e.l.f. Essentials Duo Eye Shadow Cream in Sugar Cookie ($1) and then add a touch of shimmer across the lash lines with e.l.f. Essentials Shimmer Eyeliner in Grassy Green ($1) to give the effects of an illuminating highlighter.  Add two coats of lengthening mascara for that extra va-va-va-voom appeal and you're good to go!"

Guilt Free Glow

"There's nothing more timeless or sexier than a flawless, radiant YOU and naturally glowing skin will ensure you stand out from the crowd,"  says Dunaway.  "Create a delicate, smooth complexion with a lightweight tinted moisturizer with added skincare benefits such as the NEW e.l.f. Studio Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($3), it contains SPF for protection, aloe and vitamins A and E for around-the-clock hydration.  Add a bold statement by blending a hot-pink blush such as e.l.f. Studio Cream Blush in Flirt ($6) the apples of the cheeks for a faux sun-kissed glow!"  

Those aren't the only two tips Dunaway has to offer!  Check out our DIY for one more trend - Matchy-Matchy is Catchy!
