Hot Spring Beauty Trends
It’s January. It’s raining or snowing in most parts of the contiguous United States. Here in the Bay Area, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the forecast is sunny and 63 degrees.
I know it’s a fake-out and the rain will be back (in buckets), but it’s sure helping me get into the spring mindset as I write this because, as things go in the fashion world, it’s time to talk spring! Spring makeup trends, specifically, though I can hardly keep myself from sharing these perfect Badgley Mischka cork pumps I came across in my inbox this morning (so not rain-friendly) . Makes me want warm sunshine to barge in and stay awhile! But then I’d not get nearly enough winter use out of my happy rain boots. Sigh.
On with business, then. My favorite spring beauty trends you can implement now:
Tangerine, Baby. Pantone has declared Tangerine Tango as 2012 Color of the Year. That’s big stuff, so perk up, pretties! Imagine gorgeous, fluttery orange poppies. Such a happy color and the perfect pick for Spring 2012. Check out Make Up Forever’s Powder Blush in Tangerine 18 or NARS Lip Gloss in Wonder. LOVE Sephora by OPI’s tangerine nail polish (in Paisley Attention To Me or Hi Def)! And if you want a bag that’ll gather compliments like wild, Marc by Marc Jacobs’ got your back. Triple love.
Make Them Blush. Blush is HUGE this spring. It really is. From the dawn of time women have pinched their cheeks, applied rouges and blushes to achieve that “oh, I’m so embarrassed he he he!” look. Men find it endearing. Or something. Whatever the real reason, I’m a fan and so is the fashion world. Makeup artists were blush crazy at New York Fashion Week, and most used it in a very non-wild, I-could-do-that way. Ralph Lauren’s models were fresh and glamorous. To add more depth, they wore apricot blush over the apples of their cheeks with a touch of pink in the center. Very natural-glam. Try brushing your favorite bronzer just below the cheekbone for a more contoured look.
All About the Hair. There is a lot of buzz surrounding hair this spring, and guess what’s in? Did you guess? I hope you did, and I hope you guessed “natural and carefree” because that’s what is up! Spring is the season to channel your inner-60s girl. Think picnics and breezy afternoons, relaxing on the beach. Simple side ponytails, low ponies, fishtail braids (simple?), wavy and curled locks are the goal. Accessories include simple skinny headbands, everyday bobby pins, leather hair ties or simple elastic bands. Invest in a good texturizing spray, dry shampoo, hair spray, smoothing/finishing cream and a good mousse or gel. And a great 1” curling iron/wand. Note: the wands rock, but I literally have a permanent scar below my elbow from one of those suckers. Beware.
Rosy Lips. Red lips are still in play this season. I, for one, just can’t pull them off with my skinny lips. Why not opt for a lighter, rosy pink instead? Sweet petal shades work beautifully with the season’s love of youthful, dewy skin. Whether you prefer matte or ultra shiny (metallic, even!), there’s a gorgeous petal pink for your coloring.
I’m off to soak up a few minutes of Vitamin D before the clouds are back. Oh, how I love these light sweater days. Here’s to spring!
