Spring/Summer 2011 Makeup Trends and a quick fotd of my favourite trend ;)

So here we go!

Sunkissed :)

Michael Kors

Natural :)


Bright eyes :)

Derek Lam

 Colorful :)


Bright lips :)
Jil Sander

Bright lips and/or intense colors on eyes, fresh, healthy looking skin.
Rosy natural lips , smokey eyes without intense outer corners (intensify the inner lid up to the brow), bronzer.

The trend I adore: au naturel! The no-makeup makeup is my favourite.It needs a little bit of practice on blending and on imitating natural shadows,colors and curves of a face but it is so useful and flattering If it's done properly...You can wear it in the morning, when you have an interview or even for a first date , when you want to give the impression of "born with it" :)
What I do:
  • Eye liner on the upper waterline - instantly my lashes look thick (I use Blacktrack Fluidline by Mac)
  • Light makeup base or tinted moisturizer (I use Stila's Natural Finish Oil Free make up) with a brush (when I apply foundation with a brush my skin doesn't look cakey-it helps a lot to the "no-makeup" effect) 
  • Mac's Painterly paintpot on eyelids 
  • Kryolan's Oak to the crease blended well
  • Mac's "Mineral" eye shadow (it's Limited edition, any medium brown will work) to crease-outer v
  • Cream blusher blended very well (I use Stila's Convertible Color in"forget me not").You need a natural color of that, just to make you look flushed.Bright neon pink is a no-no.
  • Powder the T-zone (I use Mineralize Skinfinish Natural by Mac, is such a light powder, you can barely see it on face)
  • Mat bronzer to sculpt lightly nose , jawline and cheekbones (I use Mac's Golden Bronzing Powder which is not exactly mat but will work)
  • Put some mascara (Projectionist by Estee Lauder is incredible for looking completely natural and thick lashes)
  • Lip balm with color (I use Korres Wild Rose lip butter)
That's all from me for now... :) I'd love to know ...what's your favourite trend? Do you have a product that can be more wearable this season (green neon eye shadow for instance lol)?

Demi said...

well I'm not very fond of the neutral looks...I always need a pop of color or something bolder on my makeup..especially now that spring is here...bold lips...colorfull eyes..I don't know I need something to get rid off all the autumn's black!

@Vintage Makeup: Yes the first look is so neat and easy, I love the hair too!
@Demi: Yes, bold lips will look so good on you, judging from your smiley photo! :)

Νομίζω το αγαπημένο μου είναι το look με τα bright lips αλλά και το natural look είναι πολύ ωραίο!

Natalie said...

I like all of them! Natural make up is perfect for everyday but a touch of colour on eyes or lips is amazing too!!
