The upcoming makeup drops for April are certainly embracing a vibrant and bold aesthetic, with a focus on colorful hues, voluminous lashes, and statement lips.

This trend can be attributed in part to the influential makeup artist Pat McGrath, whose groundbreaking work at Maison Margiela’s spring haute couture show captivated audiences worldwide. McGrath’s innovative “alien” skin look, which created a supernatural glow, quickly became a sensation, and set the stage for this daring trend to make its way into mainstream beauty.

McGrath’s visionary approach had beauty aficionados everywhere in a proverbial chokehold. And now as new products drop, they will be able to deliver a fresh burst of color and excitement just in time for spring. From striking eyeshadows to lash-enhancing formulas and bold lip colors, April’s makeup releases are sure to inspire creativity and experimentation among makeup enthusiasts.

Here’s a breakdown of the makeup tools and products for April.
