Pretty Pastels for Spring 2012

Since it was such a mild winter, many of the Spring 2012 trends are already in full swing!

This season we are seeing a shift from bold, dramatic lips to focusing on the eyes and using a fun, whimsical color palette to create soft and effortless looks. Pastels have been quickly crashing the hair world and are now being translated into makeup palettes. Soft lilacs, peaches, corals, mints, and golds are among the array of shades being seen on the runways and being used for everyday looks.

Instead of creating the classic “smokey eye” with darker and deeper shades, try using lighter colors all over your lid and into your crease. Pair this with a shimmery highlight color under your brow and in the inside corner of your eye. Polish off your light eye with a striking dark liner and a couple of coats of black mascara. Making sure that your eyes are your focus area, finish your look with a light tinted moisturizer to give your face a healthy, hydrated look, next a soft check color, and finally a light glossy lip.
