At last, the beautiful spring season is on the horizon and the buzz of fashion week has finally ended and the most famous beauty trends have finished jockeying for top billing. So now, it is officially the perfect time to treat your makeup bag to a color-full update. It’s never early to start wearing spring makeup and if you will do your favorite new looks, you’ll be a pro. Here’s the scoop:
While color coordinated lashes and pink lids probably won’t pass muster for most of us, here are a few straight-from-the-runway trends that are not only wearable but flattering. From long lashes, traffic-stopping lips, to electric lined eyes, the most likely makeup trends of the moment are all about making a statement—the brighter, boulder and the better. When worn at the right time, these looks will work perfectly for anyone.
Go with mile-long lashes this spring. Undeniably faux lashes displayed at Moschino, Versace, Gucci, and Armani, while over at YSL and Louis Vuitton, some decidedly spidery fringe were in full effect. While a full set of falsies is not a perfect option for every day unless there is something special. A lengthening mascara will get the job done just perfectly. Apply multiple coats and voila, your eyes will appear instantly sexier.
From Burberry’s show-stopping scarlet and Missoni’s shocking coral to Giles’ flaming fuchsia, this spring’s catwalk has brought bright lips that are matte – and makes you the star of the show. In other words, keep the rest of your makeup on one side and a bright lipstick on another side – it will compensate everything. To get this perfect look, take a tip from the pros backstage: put a concealer on your lips first and then apply your bright lipstick, then blot with a tissue paper until you achieve a perfect matte finish.
Over-the-top aqua eye makeup has made its way down the runway wearing Balenciaga, L.A.M.B and my personal favorite, Nanette Lepore’s turquoise liner is best. The electric blue liner is amazing and it simply screams spring.
So why not test the blues yourself? For wearing the trend, start by lining blues only on your top lash lines. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how this trend will turn out on you and will keep light up your entire face.
