Makeup trends- spring and summer 2011

Fashion trends influence makeup trends. Keeping that in mind, here is a look at the most popular trends in makeup for this spring and summer.

The natural look - this look is my favorite when going for the boho/70's look.  Nude eyes and lips with natural looking foundation and bronzer to finish it off.  Exfoliating twice a week will help make your skin look fresh, which will help with the natural look of course.

Lacoste 2011

Dolce and Gabbana                         

Product you might like to achieve the natural look: Bronzer by Too Faced

                            Too faced Caribbean in a compact- sun bunny $28

                                                This gives a great sun kissed glow


  Bold Lips- bright pinks and true reds make for the perfect bold lip. This look is great for a night out or to make a plain outfit pop. Take it easy on the eye makeup when doing bold lips.

Mac has a great bright pink lipstick called Girl About Town              

   Dolce and Gabbana have a great red color- Iconic



Bright Eyes
- crazy bright eyeshadows are something I have personally never been able to pull off, unless I just do a small section in a bright color. To those of you with larger eyelids, rock on.

Mac is great for bold eyeshadows

Smokey Eyes- for me, smokey eye makeup is not a trend, but a way of life. I love dark eyeliners and darker eyeshadows (esp plum colors). Dark blues, browns, and gray eyeshadows are great to have on hand for this look too. Of course, this look is best for a night out, but a toned down version works during the day too.


Duwop has a great gray eyeshadow palette that I love, perfect for the smokey eye look
