Spring 2012 - Lashes, Liner, & Lips ♥

By Tinaeveritt @TinaEveritt
I was walking around Nordstrom in King of Prussia mall last week and I noticed the new spring trends are out in a big way and I have to say I love them. It's a look any girl can wear and is easy enough to do. It seems to be a mostly nude look with a little pop. The face is a luminous glow with a sun-kissed look, but not overly bronzed or tan - think natural and youthful. Cheek color seems to be bronzed or a soft pink, applied very lightly to merely highlight the cheek bones. TIP- To enhance cheek bones and slim the face, after applying blush, suck in your cheeks and make a fishy-face. Sweep bronzer in the indents just under your cheek bones upward. Back to the spring style though! Eyes seem to be either completely nude with a slight shimmer or soft pastel colors. Liner is definitely in, mostly black. Lashes are BIG, BIG, BIG this season, volume, length, & lash definition. Focus on defining the eye. Lastly, the lips! Most common seems to be a nude lip, matte and glossy are both big so do what you feel comfortable with. TIP- lipgloss will enhance thinner lips to make them look fuller. TIP- Filling in the entire lip with a nude liner or even a lip liner close to your natural lip coloring will help hold on lipsticks and glosses for a longer wear, as well as allows your chosen lip color to show up how it actually looks in the tube! Last, don't forget to maintain your brows and fill them in with a color that matches your natural brow color. Smashbox makes a Brow Tech to Go that has one side with a wax color to fill in your brows as well as tame any unruly hairs. The other side has a gel that you brush through with the included brush that looks like a mini mascara wand. It's almost like 3 products in 1 and works very well and comes in a range of colors. Head out to your local mall and take a peek at the new spring collections and have fun! Many make-up counters will happily show you a look specially for you! Enjoy & have fun!
Stay beautiful girls ...
