Spring is just around the corner (that's if we aren't all washed away by this weather before then). Here are some of the gorgeous Spring/Summer makeup trends that have been seen all over the catwalks. I will try and post pictures of the more "wearable" ones.
Michael Kors used the colour Dame from his own range to create a beautiful berry lip (photo on the left). You will be able to recreate the look with Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stains and Bourjois Shine lipsticks.
Its all about the cat eye this Spring/Summer. So wither you like to use a gel, liquid or pencil you better start to practice. Makeup artist Mally Roncal said that a thin cotton swab dipped in makeup remover is the key to getting a neat clean line. I love the L'Oreal Super Liner and the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner with an angled brush.
No the 80's aren't back...Blue is back though and VERY trendy. You will be looking for an electric blue shadow or liner. Bourjois are ususally bang on trend with their liners and Maybelline have a gorgeous cream shadow which you can use as a base or an all over shadow (Eye Studio Colour Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow in Tenacious Teal).
Bright Orange Lipstick
Don't be afraid of this trend. It was massive on the catwalks with designers such as Donna Karan, DKNY, Christian Siriano and Rag & Bone all opting for various hues of the orange family. Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick In Love With Ginger is just gorgeous and Maybelline Colour Sensational Vivids in Mandarin and Electric Orange all fit the bill. To get a hint of colour just dab on with your finger and buff into your lip. You get a toned down version of the colour and a beautiful matte longlasting finish.
Glowing nude skin just looks beautiful in Spring. You can achieve this look in a few different ways - 1. Use a tinted moisturiser - I love the Laura Mercier primer in Radiance followed by the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser. 2: Using a moisturiser and illuminator. Revlon Skinlights is gorgeous applied to the cheek bones, temples and bridge of nose with a damp sponge. 3: Bourjois BB Bronzing Cream gives a beautiful glow to the skin and they also have a bronzing primer which I use as for contouring the skin (the Bourjois Bronzing Primer is a dupe for Chanel's Soleil Tan De Chanel). Both leave your skin with a beautiful sunkissed look. If you suffer from oily skin and feel you need to use a powder only apply it to the areas that really need it.
So thats it...Everything is very wearable so just play around with colours until you are comfortable.
