From barely-there makeup looks to flirty buns, and fashion forward nail hues and designs– this is the time to maximize your beauty stock! Here’s a rundown of beauty trends from the runway that will keep you looking sizzling haute for the spring 2012 season
Orange is the new red – at least as a popping lip color! Tangerine lips popped up on the international runways across the world. Let’s not forget about the burst of hot pink, pastel purple that have been spotted on the international scene as well.
While we usually see bold eyes as a Fall/Winter fashion applique, this bold and beautiful trend is staying in tow for spring. Whether it’s smudged or intricately drawn into a wing shape (for a cat-eyed), good eyeliner will keep you on the hot end of the beauty barometer.
This next trend is one that I envy girls for being able to pull off without the assistance of a brow pen or powder (like I have to do). Full brows were in full tow at the Fashion shows. I totally think the bold black brows gives you an in-your-face a daring look; plus what better way to stand out.
While there were a few colorful nail designs that hit the runways, the biggest nail trend was absolutely neutral nails. On the runways of the New York, London and Paris pretty pinks, pastels, mute browns and shades of gray overshadowed the long, neon designed nails that have been all the rage for months past. Spring nails will take a more laid back approach as short, rounded nudes and neutral shades take the lead.
The African Safaris and look of the sun-kissed, gleaming skin of a desert beauty was a leading look at this year’s shows. Michael Kors, Vera Wang, and BCBG Max Azria all took to the warming rays of Mother Nature as inspiration for skin illuminating makeup looks. Bronzer and highlighter are the go-to tools to create the look of your own gorgeous glow.
