Spring is here and that means it's time to pull out the pastels and pop on the sunnies. I've done a little research *cough* blog/magazine reading, and I'm feeling pretty full bottle on upcoming beauty trends. Taking a look at beauty bits that made the rounds on UK/USA beauty blogs during their SS as well as runway looks I've rounded up a selection of trends that I think will be big when the weather heats up.
Fashion show wise things seem to be all about the straight hair. It was all over the SS '14 runways and is a look that's fairly easy to achieve, naturally straight haired gals you're in luck! However having said that I think there's always room for a beachy curl come summer time, it's a classic.
When it comes to makeup, a natural base with a bold matte lip seems to be particularly popular. Something like Revlon's Colourburst Matte Balms (pictured above in the shade Elusive) are a good option for bold lip chickens like myself. As always in the summer months, chiseled bronzed cheeks are making an appearance. Nothing makes you look that little bit healthier than a hint of colour to the cheeks. Something like The Body Shop's Honey Bronzer is great for pale girls wanting something natural and NP Set's Blush Bronze Duo is nice for something a bit darker.
Onto eyes and the typical goldy hues are resurfacing. No complaints here, I love a little gold with my blue eyes. Shades such as Half Baked by Naked Decay make an amazing, quick, one wash wonder perfect for the summer months. A lid trend that's a little different is pastel shades. Not something I've tried before but apparently their not just for your nails! Pastel blues, pinks and greens were all spotted on the SS runways, now I just need to find a way to rock them myself!
A more winter-esque trend that's made it's way into Spring Summer is berry lips. A soft berry lip is very on trend this year so keep that winter berry in your makeup rotation just a little longer. Take a bold berry and pat on with your finger or use something like Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Black Honey to acheive a glossy, soft berry look.
