Bold makeup is the dominant beauty trend this season. The runways for S/S 2011 were full of glitter, gloss, bright lips and bold eye makeup makeup. Some trends will work better for teen while others can be worn at any age. Here are some tips on how to rock the runway looks no matter what age you are!
Bright eye makeup is back, and in a big way! Teenage girls are concentrating on eye makeup, leaving their lips gleaming with gloss like 100% Pure which I recently used for an editorial shoot. Their eyes are another story, with thick gorgeous lashes and bright eye shadow carrying the day. You have to check out the fabulous colors by Naked Cosmetics. The Color Collections are 100% oxidized mica and contains no talc, oils, waxes, parabens or other fillers-just 100% color. Best of all you can use them as eye shadow, eyeliner, lipstick, blush, bronzer and hair highligher. Oh the possibilities! Try the Broadway color collection. They are perfect for this season’s bold eye.
Go Metallic! Metallic eye shadow in bronze, gold, copper and silver allows those in their twenties to feel powerful and in style, especially paired with the runway trending jewel tones – metallic makeup matches the strength of the apparel without overwhelming it and the effect is stunning! Try these Mineral Eye Shadow Shimmers by Organic glam or Disco Ball eye shadow from Terra Firma Cosmetics. If metal isn’t your style, follow ‘Shameless’ actress Emmy Rossum’s lead – she wore a gorgeous bright plum dress for her shoot with People Magazine, and added lipstick in the same matching shade while going easy on the eye shadow!
Bright Pink and fuchsia lips paired with the creams, tans, beige eyes were huge on the runways this spring. Bubble gum pink looks fresh on tanned blonds as it gets close to summer, while deeper hues like hot pink light up brunettes while providing some pop. Emma Stone did this look beautifully at the 2011 Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala. Try Vapour Organics Plumping Lip Gloss in Vivid or Nvey Eco Hydrating Lip Lustre in Amour Rose and pile on the black mascara for stunning results.
Coral lipsticks provide the perfect palette. Actresses like Sandra Bullock and Halle Berry gracefully move into their 40’s with rich yet subdued makeup that enhances their beauty. Jane Iredale’s new line of PureMoist Lip Color has 26 shades which include at least half a dozen coral shades for every skin tone. Also try Primitive Makeup‘s Award winning Natural lipstick in Mali. Let your lips provide the allure this spring!
