Carrying on from my ‘Leap into Spring’ Post the other week I decided to look at what Beauty trends were on the Spring/Summer 2012 catwalks, and it was quite varied.
I fell in love with the looks at Louis Vuitton and Burberry, fresh, dewy skin with light eye make-up and a touch of sheen on the lips. It represents the epitome of spring beauty to me, natural and minimal. Play up your lashes by ‘tight-lining’ your eyes with a kohl eye pencil and add lots of lashings of mascara. If you have very few eyelashes like me maybe look into individual false lashes to add to the outer corner of your eyes to give yourself a little more volume.
Hair chalking was seen at Thakoon, a trend which I dabbled in for my works Christmas party and will definitely be doing again. My Hair chalk was courtesy of Kevin Murphys Colour Bug in pink, also available in purple and orange, and was easy to use. Though a word of warning to anyone wanting to try this trend, the chalk does come off a little during wear so don’t wear light coloured clothing or at least tie your hair up to minimise the risk of it getting on your clothes, though it washes out really easily.
Catwalks were also having a field day with retro hair including chignons, waves and rolls. Louis Vuitton accessorised theirs with diamante head bands, Fendi gave their roll lots of volume on top and Christian Dior models kept theirs glossy and understated, while Valentino opted for messy braided crowns.
Lipstick also seems to have been floating around the catwalks. Shades of candy, tangerine and red were seen with minimal make up elsewhere and groomed eyebrows, giving spring that little POP for parties and plain outfits.
