Beauty Trends: Spring 2012!

Spring is here! Well according to the calendar anywhoo cause by the look of the weather where I live, you really would never know.

Anyway, onto the beauty trends. Here are the top six most popular beauty trends seen on the runway. Some are a little crazy but most are manageably pulled off.

1. Statement Lips:
This is one of the easier ones. Pop on a bright red, orange, purple, blue or even gray and you're set.
Runways: Prabal Gurung, Erdem and Mugler.
Try: Rouge Dior Lipstick in "Pink Caprice" ; Chanel Rouge Allure in "Passion"; Makeup Forever's "Satin Fuschia" ; MAC in "Lady Danger" ; "Infrared" and "Rio Rio" by Topshop

2. Winged Liner:
Whether the full Cleopatra liner of just a more simple, less dramatic look, liquid and gel liners are the way forward this season!
Runways: Fendi, Dolce&Gabbana and Kanye West
Try: Bobbie Brown Gel Liner in "Black Ink" ; MAC Blacktrack fluid liner ; L'oreal Super Liner

3. Wet Hair.
All over the runways we saw the "wet hair" look which is exactly what the title says. The aim is apparently a beachy vibe but is much more saturated than the typical saltwater beach waves. Do be warned you may just look like someone who ran out the door before blow drying rather than a beauty queen.
Runways: Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang
Try: a shower; recommended not to use gel but try mousse

4. Bright Hair
From pinks to blues to reds. Colourful hair was all over the runway. This one is a little daring. Try some semi permanent or wash out dye first. Or even some bright extensions!
Runways: Mulberry, Gucci
Try: Never dyed my hair so not much assistance! Do comment though.

5. Au Natural
This season is quite muted makeup. Neutral eyes, lips, cheeks. All a bronzy dewy look.
Runways: Diane Von Furstenberg, Alexander McQueen
Try: NAKED Palette, A bit of highlighter and nude lipstick

6. Full Brows
Put down those tweezers and embrace your brows! It's all about unkept bushier brows (within reason that is). Think more masculine, less permanently surprised arches.
Runways: Christopher Kane, Wes Gordon
Try: Not plucking
