Spring Summer 2012 Beauty Trends

I thought I would take a look at beauty trends that emerged from the SS12 collections last September and how this transcends to what products we should be reaching for now. The good thing about make-up is that you can pick up similar products on the high-street and have a go at the look yourself, or put your on twist on it.

Anna Sui went for a simple but effective look - the red lip and curled hair reminded me of old hollywood glamour. Many of the looks I've featured here are stripped back and encourage the barely there look. I say for your make-up concentrate on one feature - bold lips or statement eyes, but never both. As for hair, I saw two trends you can stick to - full bouncing curls or the slicked back look. I particularly loved Emilio Pucci's smokey winged eye look, I will be trying this one out for myself.

As I said it is easy to find similar products on the high-street to be able to recreate that catwalk look. For an even skin tone without any of the heaviness use a skin tint  - the one from Topshop is great value for money. One of my favourite lip products are the ones from ELF - the mineral lipsticks are really moisturising and have a great pigment to them. This red one would be perfect for this spring. The only glow you want this summer is a natural looking one - Benefit's Cha Cha Tint is perfect for re-creating this. The good thing about this product is that you can also use it on your lips - a great product to have in your handbag. Lastly you will need an eyeliner that has staying power - this one from Urban Decay is perfect, and comes in a wide range of colours. This spring I'll mostly be rocking blue or white eyeliner.

  1. Such an informative post, I never follow make up trends though. I literally just have the same make up looks, year after year. I'm not very skilled at applying make up either. I suck, actually.

  2. I always go for a smoky eye rather than statement lips but I think this summer I am going to crack out the lipstick, if I have sunglasses on no one will see my eyes anyway!
