Hop on the beauty express and experiment with these red hot beauty trends of 2013!
Out with the OLD, in with the NUDE! Just like nude pumps, nude nail polish is on the rise. Originally coined as a Spring color, nude nail polish has crossed over into Summer and now Fall. This color gives a clean, natural appearance and compliments all complexions. Almost every lacquer line has their own rendition of this classic color. This is MAC “Abalone Shell”
COTTON CANDY HAIR
Hair is set to be the fashion statement of 2013 with cotton candies inspired shades. From sweet pink to sky blue, these delicious hues promise to be a head turner every time. For those of you not willing to make this a permanent commitment, consider temporary colour crayons to make your tresses pop without the fuss.
It was all about the eyes for spring/summer 2013, with jewelled lids at Dior, pink mascara at Donna Karan, and Space Age silver at Chanel. Metallic shadow reigned at Versace, Giorgio Armani and Gucci, whilst at Topshop Unique and Clements Ribeiro, a wash of bold colour on the lids lent a youthful prettiness.
Try Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Sinner to achieve that dramatic smoky look. Pair it with nude lips or a slick of lip gloss.
FOCUS POINT: THE LOWER LASH LINE
Born from the overarching Nineties trend spanning both fashion and beauty, make-up artists seemed inexplicably drawn to the lower lash line. Grungy liner at Lanvin, Diane von Furstenberg, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Christopher Kane was smudged beneath the eyes, whilst the only pop of colour at Stella McCartney was a flash of green on the water line. Meanwhile at Fendi, coloured fabric strips were placed on the lower lash line for an arresting catwalk look.
Try Urban Decay’s Smoked 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set, a six piece eye pencil palette for that versatile pairing.
