In addition to the previous post: some ideas and examples of the latest make-up trends, as seen on the runway! Of course, they are completely compatible to the main fashion trends.
I tried to find realistic examples, which are easy to wear in daily life.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend a M.A.C-masterclass, here in Antwerp. A few of the 2011 make-up trends were discussed, explained and demonstrated on some very lovely models.
Most of my examples here, are from the M.A.C. Cosmetics archives (from the spring-summer 2011 runway shows).
1. Glossy, shiny, healthy, nude skin.
For this look, the skincare is really important. You can mix a little drop of M.A.C. strobe cream in your daily moisturizer to make your skin look radiant and glowing. Then, comb your eyebrows and apply a little bit of cream blush in a natural colour on the apples of your cheeks. After that, you only use concealer or a bit of foundation on the little spots or dark undereye circles. This is an ideal make-up for a day on the beach! Remember: no mascara is needed (or maybe a very tiny bit of brown waterproof mascara) to finish the look!
2. Electric colour accents.
Just choose a colour and a part of your face, and paint it. Bright yellow eyelids, oranje lips or fuchsia cheeks, … go for it! The colours must be véry intense and saturated, and preferably completely matte. How to do that? Just buy an opaque, matte lipstick, or use a colourful lippencil and colour your lips. Or use an eyepencil in a particular colour, and fixate it by patting on a matte eyeshadow on top of it in the same colour.
3. Pretty pastels.
These fairy-tale-pastels (soft lavender, icy blue or transparant pistachio,…) create a beautiful, romantic and feminine look, but be careful not to use them in an old-fashioned way! In stead of the traditional eyelid-colour, use them all over and around the eyes, or use them only in the eyecorners.
4. Brown & bronze eyes
Shimmery brown eyeliners, glossy copper eyelids,… Brown is the new black! Keep the lips very natural.
This trend is perfect for blue-eyed girls with a tan this summer!
