AQUA & TEAL
We’ve seen a lot of aqua eye makeup on the SS19 runways. We're in love with the fresh shades of cobalt blue, teal, sea green and turquoise that are perfect for summer and flattering on all skin tones. There are several eye-catching ways to wear these bright colours, as thin or thick eyeliner, as cute flicks or a sharp cat eye. Whatever works for you. Take your pick from LIT Matte Eyeliner Pencil in Slay, Prom Night or Girl Crush.

Heavy metal has been big this year. Metallic eyeshadows in shades like gold, copper, silver, and gunmetal have been totally on point for Spring 2019. Apart from wearing it on your lids, it can be worn in a more subtle way. Try adding a dash on metal on the inner or outer corners of your eyes. It’s chic and makes your eyes look brighter.

NEONSUsually, spring is a time for sweet pastels and sorbet shades but that shouldn’t keep you from trying out a shocking lemon yellow like the LIT Nail Enamel in No Chill or a vibrant sky blue like the LIT Nail Enamel in Bad Romance. Coral is another colour to watch out for, after all, it’s the colour of the year. Try the LIT Nail Enamel in Bang On & Trouble Maker and make your nails pop. Colours like sea green, lilac and lavender go well with the spring mood due to their refreshing vibe. Try the Wanderlust Gel Nail Polish in Fiji, Claudia, and Provence.
