Bright makeup made a huge statement all over the Spring 2011 runways, and can easily be incorporated into your look as well.  While bright makeup may be a little intimidating to wear in the daytime, it makes for a fun look on a night out -- or try a sheer color!

Green was quite popular on the runways. A swipe of green eyeliner along your top or bottom lid will look excellent. For a more subdued look, try layering green eyeshadow with a beige or taupe shadow. Brush on some black mascara and you're good to go.

Strong and shocking, the bright, almost neon lip trend is not for the faint of heart. Diane von Furstenberg and Marc by Marc Jacobs both sent their models out on to the runways with neon lips. Nyx's Black Label Lipstick in Hot Pink is a gorgeous fuchsia shade that will embrace this spring trend. An alternative to hot pink is orange lip color; wear a coral shade if you don't want to come off too orange.

Whether you decide to hold off until spring to try these trends or jump right it and wear them tomorrow, they will undoubtedly brighten your mood. If the intense hues seem daunting, try a sheer color.  Have fun with your bright, spring look!
