Spring/Summer 2012 Make-Up Trends Straight From the Runways

New (and some just recycled) Spring/Summer 2012 Make-Up Trends

Clockwise from top left corner.

1.) Red Lips Are Back – Lipstick’s most iconic color was reinvented this season with many shades of red showing up on the runways. From Chocolate Red at Donna Karen to Metalllic crimson at Yves Saint Laurent and Betty Draper Red Dior – it’s time to go rouge!

2.) Rose Bud Lips – The other extreme was also seen up and down the catwalks. The faintest shades of rose were seen at Balmain, a hint of gloss at Carolina Herrera and sheer rosy lips at Christopher Kane. The shows make-up artists paired these romantic shades with matching cheek colors.

3.) Power Brows – Both striking and feminine at one time. The best examples are darkened with pigment, brushed up, and shaped with a dramatic, willful arch. Bold brows are the perfect frame to make your eyes standout.

4.) White Silver Metallics – Reflective washes of white silver sparked up the eyes and brow bones. The moonbeam hue subtly graced the lids at Chanel and Ralph Lauren while dramatic streaks of it were seen at Phillip Lim. No matter where the color is applied, choose a creamy finish, perfect for blending into skin so it seems to shine from within.

5.) Modern Cat Eyes  – Oh what a little flick of eyeliner at the eye corner can do. From your everyday Grace Kelly liner to graphic lines drawn on at Ruffian, even a flick of color at Matthew Williamson proved there is no “right” way to achieve this sexy look.
6.) Doll Lashes – Jazz-era lashes at Marc Jacobs, feathered lashes at Ralph Lauren, turned up tips at Ruffian and pretty punk pink at Victor & Rolf this bat-your-eyes doll like craze is one of my fave. There is nothing like a pair of falsies to let you go nude (no make-up nude) and still feel every bit as glamorous.
