2011 Spring Trend Review!

Skin for Spring has a flawless look. An even color with no redness, freckles or blemishes showing through.  This requires lots of concealer and foundation!  Match your foundation color by applying a stripe foundation on your cheek extending it over the jaw and onto the  neck. Look at it in natural light. You may need to try a few to get the right match. The right color foundation will not be an obvious stripe on your skin.  It will blend right in. Foundations with a yellowish tinge look natural on most people. For your concealer, choose a peach concealer to hide dark circles. Choose a yellowish concealer to hide blemishes and red areas.  Apply your concealer with a brush where needed. Then, apply foundation with a sponge or a foundation brush for natural looking coverage.

Another style tend for Spring is the imperfect center part.  The side swept hairstyles have been the rage for the past few years.  Now, it's time for hair parted in the center. Make sure that your part is a little messy and relaxed looking not old fashioned super straight and perfect!

Bright matte lipstick in Fuchsia, Hot Pink, Coral and Orange.  I love pink!  Revlon's Colorburst in Fuchsia #030 gives you intense rich color and feels light and moist on your lips. Apply the lipstick to your lips, then blot.  Keep the low luster matte look by not adding gloss.  Find Revlon color burst in your local drugstore for about $8.99. 

Eye shadow for spring is 
soft and pastel
bright and bold!

I love these eye shadow colors!  They are perfect for the Spring pastel look and I think the texture on the shadows add a bit of fun.  Revlon CustomEyes in Party Pops.  If you are not sure how to apply these colors, just look at the handy diagram on the back of the compact. It shows you how to wear all 5 colors at once. Have fun with it!  About $8.00 at drugstores.

Lime eye shadow is so in for spring! Try Wet n Wild Color Icon I Dream of Greenie Eye Shadow Trio! Find it in your local drug store. It's a great way to try a trendy color in an inexpensive way! 

Time to get out the old macrame belt, the crocheted shirt and the fringed bag.  That woven 70's look is back! We need some fun this spring after that long cold winter. Lace, macrame, fringe and tassels are all in for style. I've seen cool macrame jewelry, some great fringed bags and even shoes with beaded fringe on the heels. Put a little fringe on it, even better add some beads and I love it! 

Nail colors for spring are one extreme to the other.  Soft muted neutrals, greiges (gray/beige) and pastels are all the rage along with bold bright oranges, fuchsias and pinks.  It's nice to have choices!

I love Orly's Spring Nail Color Collection called Precious. The colors just say Spring!  You can find Orly Polish at Sally Beauty Supply for $5.99 or at salons.

Texas. This is the spring & summer collection from OPI. Lots of fun bright colors and brown, tan & gray.

Please note: Revlon is now on the animal testing list. It wasn't when this was written but it is now.

Have a Beautiful Day!
