Greetings from sunny, and often chilly, SF! Jane here, from The Glamourist, reporting to you on current beauty trends!
As we are knee deep in 2012, one trend we would be blind to miss is color… lots and lots of color. From candy apple red trousers, to neon silk blouses… color has been one of the bright trends since FW2011. Though some of us are daring and dive right into this color frenzy, most of us are not. With a few key tricks, you”ll soon be donning these bright hues of your own.
My favorite beauty trend this summer was popular on many of the runways. A minimalist chic look of dewy skin, a hint of mascara and a pop of matte bold lips. To make this look your own, start with a cream highlighter and apply at the top of the cheek and brow bone and the inner corners of the eyes. Using an eyelash curler, curl your lashes and apply mascara. For a flush of color, use a cream base blush like Benefit’s Benetint or Stila’s convertible color in petunia. Next, apply your favorite bold lip color, my favorite is OCC’s liptar in harlot, using a lip brush, this will control the amount of lip color that gets applied.
Have fun being bold and beautiful!
