A new season calls for a new wardrobe and, more importantly, a new way to wear your make-up. Switch on your beauty mode for spring/summer 2013.
A Touch of Colour
Add hues to your make-up this season; focus on your eyes and lips. Coloured eyeliner applied along the lower lash line or smudged beneath the eyes is a hot trend. However, go easy with the colours. If you’re wearing pink lipstick, go for neutral shades in the eyes as seen in Giles, Chloe and Stella McCartney runways.
Some designers showcased their collection using make-up as a tool to express their creativity. This gives us the opportunity to experiment a bit to find our own style. For dramatic eyes Dior added colourful crystals, Chanel Haute Couture applied lace and Fendi glued multi-coloured fabrics. What will you come up with?
Flawless skin and the idea of ‘no make-up’ is the key to nailing many of the season’s looks. The minimalism appearance asks for perfect skin and a subtle flush of pink on the cheeks. The return of the ‘90s brings natural and minimal hair to style as portrayed in the Bottega Veneta catwalk.
The Dark Side
Smokey eyes with dark, deep colours were the trademark of winter make-up. The strong trend has found itself rocking the show for spring and summer as well, albeit with a lighter approach. Using softer shades of black and skin-colour lipstick, it is as an elegant and sexy option for evenings out. Refer Marc by Marc Jacobs for a guideline.
