Trend Alert: 2012 Makeup Trends


I know for most fashionistas out there, you might already know all the fall/winter trends for 2012. However, let’s stay present and look chic! Here’re some of my favorite trends for spring makeup and of course, trends are just for inspiration, you can always tone it down and make it everyday friendly.

First comes the no-makeup makeup. It’s probably no surprise for many of you. Nevertheless, you can never go wrong with looking fresh and dewy for springtime.

Suit: those of you who have relatively good skin and do not require too much coverage.

Suggestion: Benefit High beam, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (for those of you who are on a budget, just apply some balm like Vaseline on the top of your cheek bones, trust me, it works wonder)

I’ve always been a huge fan of cat eyes, so when I saw modern winged eyeliner look as one of the trends I was quite happy. There’re all kinds of variations on the standard winger eyeliners: colored liner, super bold liner, double liner as well as futuristic ones are all over the runway.

Suit: anyone who likes to experiment with their standard flicked liners

Suggestion: Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner, Bobbi Brown Gel Liner (again, an affordable take on the colored liners would be wet eye shadow. Spray your liner brush wet and dip it into any color shadow, and voila!)

Bedroom eye! What a catchy name. haha I can’t quite distinguish this type of makeup but I think most bed eye makeup looks undone and effortless, hence the name. The common ones are super blended smoky eyes, thin liner with lots of mascara. Just keep it simple and go with it!

Suit: those people who just rolled out of bed (lol just jk); anyone really

Suggestion: good blending brush such as Mac 224

Last but not least is the matchy matchy bold lip and nails. The name might sound confusing, but really, it is just match your bold lip color with your nail lacquer. I personally love this look, it’s neat but not overdone and you can have fun with all kinds of colors. Definitely my favorite!

Suit: girls who love bold colors

Suggestion: Mac Angel with OPI Mod about you (just match it up and have fun)

What's your favorite makeup trend for this spring? What do you love about spring the most?
