Hi everyone! I’m back! Just to give a quick update, last week I was in Japan for a short trip. I just returned on Saturday and currently I’m having fever, coughs and stuffy nose. I promise I’ll try to put up a post as soon as I can, but please bear with me the posts might be going up tomorrow onwards. I’ve a makeup haul, product review and tutorials waiting for you! I just need to recuperate first and get better!
Anyhow, with that said, don’t forget to go over to my Instagram account to see pictures from Japan 😀
Now, let’s get going to Spring/Summer 2013 Makeup Trend! Similar theme seems to be popping out throughout the show – bushy thick brows, bare skin and very little to no blush. The look has a retro feel to it, yet it’s kept modern with the downplay of the blushes. Below are a few of my favorites from the Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection.
Bright bold colors aren’t going anywhere, and it’s definitely not reserved only to clothings! We’re seeing a punch of cobalt blue, bright pink, seafoam green and mint as seen on Anna Sui, Christian Dior and Jean Paul Gaultier. Bright colors are here to stay! I simply love the use of a bold color with strong liner. Definitely a great look to be paired with muted clothes or if you’d like, wear it with a black headband or even a hat (read: Boy George). Keep in mind that since the eyes are so strong, leave everything else bare. Skin are fresh and dewy with very little blush or contour. Lips are soft and nude in Dior, or if you are bold enough, give red lips a try. Black mascara is a definite must to make your eyes stand out even more.
Of course, if you are afraid to try bright colors, you can definitely give silver eyeshadow a try, as seen on Chanel. Using Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow, Peter Phillips (creative director for Chanel) layered the cream eyeshadow all over the lid to achieve a high-shine look. The eyes are rimmed with black liner to intensify the look. I recommend this look for everyone! Silver is making a return in a very sophisticated way. Obviously, you don’t have to wear it all the way to the brow bone. Keep it on the lid, buffing the color slightly just over the crease. Paired it with a shiny, peach lips (blot excess gloss) and a nude blush.
If silver isn’t your thing, you can always change it to a more muted color like sandy-gold eyes seen on Derek Lam. Contour on the cheeks using bronzer to give it a healthy glow, while brows are kept thick and bushy for a sporty look. Very simple and effortless. Tres chic!
Of course, if all the above isn’t working for you, there’s always the usual clean bare face and red lips look. These classic looks never fail! In DVF, the girls are tanned and glowy, in 3.1 Phillip Lim eyelashes are clumpy with bare skin all over and lastly Burberry presented an earthy tone natural look with red lips.
