Trends for 2012!

So spring is almost upon us even tho it does not look like it, so I decided to do a post on makeup trends that braced us during the spring summer collections. The thing to remember with trends is that though they sometimes seem unwearable on the catwalk they can be tamed down to fit the everyday women.

1. Bright Eyes!!!
All the dark,plain tones are out and neon is in! Grab the brightest eyeshadow you have and slap it on and your in trend!! In truth not the easiest look to pull off nor is it the norm for most girls. So how can you wear it without getting a few funny looks, put down your black eyeliner and pick up a colored one in cobalt blue or fuscia pink, it will totally give your everyday look a bit of a twist.

2. Eye Catching Lips!
From bright eyes to bright lips you either choose one or the other, not together or you'll just look like you had an explosion of crayon on your face! With more and more cosmetics brands bringing out different color lipsticks its easier to get your hands on a dramatic color. I personally love Illamasque range but even MUA cosmetics have a great range of bright colors! There is also this "wine stained" lips that we saw at Gurung, its not for everyone but if you dare go for it!

3. Smoulder Your Way Into My Heart!
Irish girls will be so happy with this trend, known for their love of the smokey eye this is right along their alley. All you need is a black kohl pencil ( make sure its soft) to create this look, I personally love Inglot pencil, but M.A.C do great ones as well.
Team your metallic nails with your smoulder eyes!

4. Do Not Put Away The Metallic Just Yet!
Metallic is still in! Well in nail varnish anyway ! In A/W11/12 we saw an explosion on metallic nail varnish everywhere and it seems to be sticking around. You can get metallic nail varnish every where now even in Penneys so there is no need to miss out!

5. Make Me Shimmer!
Illuminators are all in , the dewy fresh look is the look for the summer mix it in with your foundation or just apply it to the cheekbones and you have it! You want to avoid something that has lots of glitter as its about been shimmery not glittery! High Beam for Benefit is good, they also do Bathina for the body if you want an all over shimmer.

There is some other trends out there but these are my faves and you do not need to be on trend in every trend pick one to suit you and make it your own! You can be on trend but still be yourself!
