However, even if clients are comfortable with the makeup hues they wear currently, don’t hesitate to suggest something fun and new. “It’s important for professionals to encourage people to open up creatively with colors,” Eiseman says. “Clients may have been told they’re within a certain color temperature range and shouldn’t wear certain shades, but they never know how they look in it or whether they can wear it until they try.”

To sum it up, Scott says, “Use what looks good. Use bold colors, and most of all, have fun.” The vivid, eye-catching shades of spring—pink, purple, yellow, red, green and more—can be played up on the eyes and lips with vivacious pops of intensity, or mellowed using sheer applications and a light touch. Take the time with your clients to encourage them to try something new while also blending it with the old. You never know when someone might find a new favorite color or product.
