Some of the brighter colors include orange, tangerine, cantaloupe, hot pink, honeysuckle, coral and deep berry, says Katz. “[For] less obtrusive lip color, the nude lipsticks of the season have a light, soft pink, while others are more brown,” she explains.

Growing Optimism

The new brightness of spring illustrates a growing optimism in the country, says Katz. “People are wanting to feel more optimistic, and these colors imbue a sense of optimism that we’ve been missing. As things are starting to turn around, people want to express that and not look so heavy. There’s a vibrancy that we’ve not seen in a while,” she explains.

Concludes Eiseman, “[Women] will want a punch of color that’s going to show up well. Because of the economy, people may not want to spend money on a new coat or accessories, but they will spend it on new eye shadows and lipsticks, which are a perfect place to add a little fun.”
