True blue: Get the Michelle Obama look

Today's the first day of spring (yay!), we're taking a cue from the First Lady and incorporating color into our beauty look stat. At this point, MObama is basically the First Beauty Editor, right? She's setting trends every month.


Our Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles got a close-up look at MObama's blue eye liner yesterday and tweeted: "Check out @michelleobamas aqua eye liner, pretty rad for a First Lady @whitehouse #women'shistorymonth." And we totally agree, she looks amazing and so fresh-faced.


So, in addition to lining your top or bottom lash line with colored blue liner (or any shade, really), like Michelle Obama did, here are four other ways to splash your beauty routine with a little ROY G BIV:


1. Top your lips with a coral-colored lipstick. The shade works on all skin tones, since it's a blend of peach and pink, and it's so on-trend for Spring it hurts. Try Revlon Color Stay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in It Girl, $10, drugstore.com.


2. Or go for a hot pink shade on your pout. This color is a playful alternative to a classic red, making it the perfect Spring shade. Plus, if you're sporting barely there makeup and want to kick up your look a notch, this color is the way to go. We like Illamasqua Lipstick in Eurydice, $24, sephora.com.


3. Do up your digits. Spring is the time to dabble in color, so why not coat your tips and toes with Crayola-like colored polish? Whether you go for brights or pastels, you can't go wrong.


4. Add some color to your strands. We're taking a page out of Peter Som's book for this one. Change up your hair color either by clipping in a pale pink, blue, or purple extension or using temporary hair dye to switch up your strands for a subtle rainbow effect.


How will you be incorporating color into your beauty look this spring?
