Four Make-up Trends For Spring/Summer 2013

Today is the first day of Spring!! But when I looked outside this morning, this is what I saw:


Yep, that's what's called "Living in the Prairies." We always say that if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes and it will change. But unfortunately if you happen to like the weather, it can also change in five minutes. And if you couldn't tell by the photo, yes it was snowing.

Anyhow, I'm not going to let something as minor as a few inches of snow get me down. So in honour of the first day of spring, here are four make-up trends for spring/summer. Maybe after posting this it will quit snowing.

Red Lipstick
You'd think Spring would be about pretty pastel colours, but on various runways different shades of red lips were showing up. Any colour is up to you from coral reds to wine reds - anything goes this spring/summer. Surprisingly, red lips is a look anyone can pull off. Fair skinned gals look best in coral-reds, medium complexions wear pinky/cranberry shades, while dark skinned gals will look best in dark, rich colours such as burgandy or warm brick.


Emerald Green
Pantone has declared Emerald Green their colour of 2013. Many companies including Sephora are bringing out lovely green eyeshadows, eyeliners, mascara, and of course nail polish. You can be conservative with just a pop of green nail polish or you can be as bold as you want to be by using more than one type of green make-up. 


Nude Nails
Colourful nail art is continues to be popular these days, but a trend happening for spring is nude nails. Don't match your nail colour to your skin tone but rather choose a hue that's darker and warmer without being too much of a stark contrast. Nude doesn't equal "blah" though. Be as creative as you like!


Bold Brows

Like it or not bold eyebrows are here to stay. That's a good thing because bolder eyebrows make people look younger - young kids have them before they discover tweezers.  If you've over-plucked start growing them back now. Whether you have thick or thin brows, use a pencil and/or powder to fill them in.

Zeke is dropping by again on Friday. I haven't seen much of him today, so maybe he's got the laptop in his kennel working on his blog entry.
