Spring 2011 Makeup Tips

Spring is the season of emotions and blossoms, when we all fall in love once again and smiles appear to our faces so easily. It’s the time when we are filled with hope, optimism and creativity, when we try to brighten up our lives and refresh our daily routine. It’s the right season to take a look at our wardrobes and makeup kit as well, thus bringing some sunny, funny and fresh vibe into our look. With spring in the air, get ready to emphasize the beauty of your eyes with the help of delicious shades and bring out all the best features of your face, reflecting the best season’s atmosphere and flavor.

Perhaps the most important thing about your face is your skin, which embodies the entire charm and beauty of your appearance. This season flawless skin is so hot, and by this we mean youthful, shining and fresh skin. To achieve the desired result, you should pay a great attention to the foundation you choose, to the quality of it, texture and tone. If you want to have a glamorous, eye-catching foundation, just apply some glosser to your cheekbones.
Sun-kissed cheeks describe your femininity and seduction at the best, so try to choose the right blush and show off your allure. This season bronzing blush is so trendy, as noticed at Salvatore Ferragamo, Moschino or Chloe. On the other hand, peachy or pink blush is so sophisticated and natural, creating a fresh effect on your skin.
This season we’ll see rainbow not only in the sky, but on the eyes as well. We can see so many bold, vibrant eyeshadows trendy this year, such as neon blue, emerald-green, vibrant red or fuchsia, which looks so great on matte makeup. Try to keep your lips look very natural, if you choose vibrant eyeshadows.

It seems like smoky eyes are always on trend, which look so mysterious, seductive and gorgeous. However, this year smoky eyes come in a different interpretation, which looks so creative and fresh. Apply some metallic shade on your eyelids, as seen at Marc Jacobs, Channel and Just Cavalli.
When it comes to lips, the new candy red shade is very trendy. You can also try purple or vibrant pink, making your lips real catchy accessories. To achieve maximum impact, use matte texture. Apply some softening foundation layer first, then the lipstick. After it apply some powder and another lipstick coat and you’ll achieve a brilliant result.

As we see, bubble gum hues and matte textures are very hot, when it comes to the lipstick. If you aren’t afraid to emphasize your lips, the smart investment will be choosing a coral lipstick.
We see that tangerine is very trendy this year, when it comes to clothes, and as for makeup this color is slightly diverged and appears to be orange. Orange is extremely hot this year both in case of lipstick, nail polish and eyeshadow. To achieve a mesmerizing makeup, try to match the color of your lips with your nails, and leave the rest of your makeup very simple.
As for eyebrows, two trends are noticed for spring/summer 2011 – the uber-natural trend, when brows look fuller and the over-contoured trend. On the other hand, some famous designers bleach the eyebrows, at the same time maintaining their natural shape. Bleaching lets the color of your eyes appear more vivid and glamorous.
