So spring is here and so it's time to re-organise your make-up bags and get out your spring make-up. And to help you decide what to keep and what to put away I'll be showing you my favourite trends for Spring. These were seen on catwalk shows all around the world, it's not all about the clothes at these shows everyone has their eyes on what new make-up trends will emerge too. So enjoy ...
The key to this look is making your skin look naturally glowy and fresh, so you will need a really good moisturiser to get rid of any dry patches. Next use a light creamy foundation preferably something light-reflective which will catch the sun and make you glow! Stay clear of matte and heavy foundations as they will way down your skin and look too obvious.
Use peachy/apricot coloured bronzer to achieve this look, sweep onto the high points of your face, so the tops of cheek bones, temples, across the nose etc. Don't be shy with the bronzer the look you want to go for is sunburn chic! lol
Now ladies in this case the bigger the better! You want full brows which are brushed up and arched, so fill in with a dark brown colour and use clear brow gel to brush up and set in place. Now I have naturally big brows , I've been rocking them forever, so looks like I've been ahead of this trend for year! ;-)
Modern Cat Flick
Try something different with this classic make-up look, go for different colours not just black. Also try adding two flicks at the end rather than one, just experiment with different styles and make it more 2012!
Pops of Colour
This is for the more daring of you and it involves bright colours! This trend is all about injecting some colour and fun into a make-up look so don't be afraid to use bright stand-out colours to achieve this look, the brighter the better.
You can play round with different shades and tones of red, it doesn't have to be a really dark red you can go with a softer red too. Or you can go for the browny and plummy red shades depends what you want to wear and what suits your skin tone. As this is spring make-up I would probably stay away from matte colours, go for glossy reds or creamy reds, whichever you prefer.
Rose Coloured Lips
Soft rose colours work well with all skin tones and are easy to wear and are very flattering if you don't like too much colour on your lips. Go for a creamy lipstick and pat it into lips then blot to get that perfect stain to your lips which looks natural and effortless. And remember rosey and nude colours make your lips appear fuller!
To achieve this look curl you lashes before applying mascara, and choose a mascara that is curling and lengthens lashes too. You want feathery lashes so don't be shy with the mascara and pay particular attention to the outer corners pulling the lashes out and up to elongate the eye and give that doll eyed look.
And there you have it the trends for spring which everyone can wear, there are some really pretty looks in here which I will definitely be trying. What do you think, will you be rocking any of these trends? Do let me know your favourites.
