Weʼre back with our third installment of whatʼs trendy for Spring 2013 in the hair and beauty department. Make-up trends are similar to nail trends in that there is a lot of playing with color. In the fall and winter we saw a lot of deep, warm, jewel tones that usually matched the garment colors for that season as well. Similarly, in spring youʼll find brighter, more airy hues that reflect the return of color in nature and to our wardrobes. I know most women find a makeup routine that works for them and stick to it everyday. But even if itʼs just switching up your eyeliner color, or experimenting with a different lip shade, these are makeup trends that donʼt need to be saved just for special occasions.
Iʼll start with coral because thatʼs a color we see return to our beauty brushes almost every spring and summer. Itʼs one of those hues that looks great on all skin types, and also mimics your skinʼs natural blush. Just be wary of how much you put on–less is always more! The rounds of your cheeks are where you normally blush so to keep it extra natural looking, sweep it in a circular motion on your cheekbones. Here you can see that nothing is too extreme and the model is left with a gorgeous glow.
We all want lush lashes year round, but the runway saw fun switch ups to the expected false lashes. Could it be that clumpy lashes are in? Not in the super messy sense, but this Twiggy-ish look shows just how perfect being imperfect can be, we no longer need to worry about making each lash identical.
Another thing is to not skimp out on the lower lashes, just one simple sweep on the bottom will give a dramatic look without eyeliner.
Blue and green were common colors both in liners and shadows. To avoid looking like a little girl whoʼs gotten into her momʼs makeup for the first time, keep shadows in pastel and muted hues, and keep the rest of your makeup simple–colorful eyes, blush, and bold lips would be too much.
However if youʼre choosing a colored eye liner instead of shadow, you can opt for deeper and richer tones of green and blue. This emerald gel liner on the bottom is a perfect way to draw attention to your eyes in a new way, without looking like youʼre trying too hard. Since youʼre eyes will be the most dramatic in this look, be careful with how much other color you put on your face. Here, Stella McCartney kept the rest of the color palette natural.
