Light Spring Makeup

Pastel Spring (Light Spring)
Spring pink is perfect for you as lipstick and blush.  Do not use the coral or apricot as you are a cooler Spring. You can add brown to these to  make them more neutral.  Eyeshadows should be applied lightly to tone down warmth just a bit, but don't go fully into Summer colors.  Choose blue, turquoise, blue-violet with Spring brown for contour and yellow for highlight.

Striking Spring Makeup

Striking Spring (Bright or Vital Spring)
Dark hair (or plattinum blonde) may give the impression of Winter, so you want to keep your colors pure.  Wear Spring's red lipstick, you can mix some brown in.  Light pinks and corals will be too light for you.  You might choose a deeper coral.  Use red-coral or yellowed red blush.  Choose cooler eyeshadow colors, such as blue, blue-violet, navy blue, turquoise or green.  You might try yellow green as a highlighter is your eyes are brown, or creamy yellow eyeshadow highlighter is good.  Eyeliner should be dark brown or gray, maybe even a muted black, or navy blue.

Gray Haired Spring
Your hair may be lighter than blonde, which puts you into True Spring colors.  Red, pink or coral pink lipsticks and blush. Eyeshadow in blue-violet, blue and navy, or perhaps brown if your eyes are brown.  Highlight with creamy yellow or yellow green.  Line eyes with brown only if they are that color, use dark gray otherwise.
