Spring/Summer 2012 Beauty trends

After some researching i have came across the following trends for this season and that is bold brows, pops of colour and the 'fresh faced' look.
Bold brows: currently at the runways model were showing their brows in an natural shape, use a brow pencil to add extra colour and definition.
You can find this look at these runways: Derek lam,Altuzarra,Diane Von Furstenberg, Giles, Suno,Versace and Missoni.

Colour pop is another trend at the catwalks this season with lots of blue hues. The spring and summer seasons demand colour and well here it is!
You can find this look at these runways: Louise gray, Manish arora, Moschino cheap & chic, Paul costelloe and Vivienne westwood red label.

Fresh faced: It was nice to see this trend something which i have been doing lately. There is nothing better than having a foundation that actually matches your skin tone, To check if the foundation matches use some foundation on your jaw line rather than on your hand and check  it in natural light. I also recommend going for regular facials to keep your skin looking radiant and feeling fresh too!
You can find this look at these runways: Giambattista Valli, Costume national, Givenchy, Missoni and Stella McCartney.

Contouring: This trend is my fave! there's nothing like a good contour. This gives the illusion of the ideal high cheekbones just like the ones model have. You use a dark bronzer and apply it on your cheek (but you have to make that face where you suck your cheeks in, i call it the fish face) You then apply a highlighter on top of where you have applied the bronzer simply so  all the attention goes on your cheeks and because the light hits there first it gives the illusion of high cheekbones.
You can find this look at these runways: Proenza Schouler and Sass & Bide.

And lastly Retro glamour which is a take on the 1940s make up where there is eyeliner, red lips and curls in the hair. I like the eye looks of this trend because i prefer eyeliner over eyeshadow.
You can find this look at these runways: Christian Dior,Jean Paul Gaultier and Zac Posen.
