Spring Summer 13: Beauty Trends

There are so many fun beauty trends to try this coming season it will be hard to get bored. So get excited and read on for my mini break down of the trends!

Bold lips
L-R Giles, Richard Nicholl, Missoni, Dries Van Noten

This Spring-Summer there’s 2 ways to go bold. The first of which is to wear a bold lip with very little eye make-up. Pink was the popular choice in every colour from bubble gum to magenta. Other hot picks were very dark burgundy and corals. Most will have been done by a lipstick however if you don’t like the feel or coverage of a lipstick go for a lip stain for a bright look with a weightless feel.

Bold Eyes
L-R - Anna Sui, Chanel, Chloe, Dior

Bold eye colours were one of the many eye trends at SS13 catwalks giving a bright and playful appeal to the catwalk. Colours ranged from Metallic silver and bronze to pink, blue, orange and red. Diors beauty teams even went so far as to decorate each of the models eyes with diamantes with a different pattern and colour combination. Now that’s dedication.

Enhanced Natural
L-R Giambattista Valli, Ralph Lauren, Marni, Valentino

Last Spring-Summer no make-up was a popular choice however SS13 beauty experts used make up to create a natural look that has clearly been enhanced by make-up. Two choices were made with foundation either a matte finish or light dew feel but never overly shiny. Cheeks were enhanced with a rosy blush, brows shaped but not filled; no eyeliner was used and minimal mascara.

Lower Lids
L-R Stella McCartney, Christopher Kane, Lanvin, Fendi

Your lower eye lids are going to be the most fashionable area of your face this coming season. Designers’ beauty teams were making this a clear focus point for SS13. Going with every version from natural at DVF, smoky and smudged at Christopher Kane and lined with coloured tape at Fendi.

Brown Eyed Girls
L-R House of Holland, Marc Jacobs, Roberto Cavalli, DVF

Brown was another popular eye colour choice on the catwalks. It is a softer alternative to black and if you aren’t a fan of a bright bold eye and prefer a more natural look it is a good choice to make. Did you know that brown is a great colour as you get older too as its softer than black liners so will make you look younger. I think that is what the beauty teams may have gone for, a youthful feel as spring always makes you want to feel fresh faced after the winter months because even if you go for a more dramatic eye it still looks chic.

Hope this has given you some inspiration. How will you be wearing your make-up this season?
