Each season, a whole new group of gorgeous beauty trends come into play. Feel free to start slowly transitioning from fall’s dark palette into spring 2013’s bright colors and simple elegance, hailing straight from the runways.
A twist on fire engine red, a bold poppy shade with a matte finish paints a striking finishing touch. “It’s passionate and strong,” said makeup artist Pat McGrath backstage at Prada to Allure, where she chose the color to complement spring’s bold prints. Try CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Hot.
The new smokey eye is played out in a golden copper. Pair it with smudgy black liner to give definition to your eyes. Try L’Oréal Paris HIP Studio Secrets Professional Metallic Duos in Charged.
Charcoal Nail Polish
Charcoal is a shade that’s not only chic but complements almost any age or skin tone. For an edgier feel, look for hints of silvery gray shimmer, as seen on Jason Wu’s spring runway. Try Butter London 3 Free Nail Lacquer-Vernis in Chimney Sweep.
Think sky blue liner, but not in that caked-on ‘50s way. Makeup artist Dick Page painted a graphic line of Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trios in BL310 Punky Blues along the crease at Michael Kors. For everyday, wear the eye-opening shade as eyeliner.
