Spring is here and so is Aveda’s 2014 Spring/Summer makeup! Aptly called Culture Clash, this new collection blends diverse colours and textures on a global level, from tribal and folkloric to urban and contemporary. All these seemingly clashing styles come together to form a fresh and feminine line perfect for the new season.

Culture Clash

 

Culture Clash has a distinct boho vibe with a futuristic flair, says Janell Geason (Aveda Global Artistic Director for Makeup, and creator of the new line). For makeup, this means pairing natural, earthy tones like warm coppers and fleshy nudes with a pop of vivid color, for a look that feels fresh and pretty yet sophisticated.

Here’s a sneak peak at the collection:

These new colours can be tweaked and layered to create looks as suitable for casual daytime as they are for a chic night on the town. Check out Aveda’s website and YouTube channel for tutorials on how to use this season’s makeup!
