Spring 2012 Beauty Trends

Spring 2012 Beauty Trends

posted on: 2.23.2012

I may or may not be the only person who feels this way, but I feel as if every year the spring trends are essentially exactly the same, with different variations of a specific look. Right?? I remember last spring, coral lips were the way to go, and this year red lips are all the rage. I don't know, maybe I just don't "get" the differences. Regardless of this, I thought it'd be fun to talk about the hottest spring trends.
  • In my last post and video, I did a video on one of the major spring trends: the navy blue smokey eye. Super easy to do, and looks great on pretty much everyone. 
  • Red lips are all the rage! I love a classic red lip, and I'm actually quite thrilled that the classic blue-toned red is back in style as opposed to last year's coral-red.
  • If you're addicted to winged liner like I am, then this is your season! Graphic liners are making a comeback like it's nobody's business, and this makes my heart happy. I've seen some funky liner designs on the runway, so for now I think I'll stick with my tame winged liner.
  • For fans of the power brow, spring 2012 is your season! Personally, I am not a fan of untamed, bushy eyebrows, and prefer groomed, tidy brows. I have naturally hardcore bushy brows, but I dedicate a ton of time to them to keep them in check, so I *don't* quite get the appeal of crazy brows, but to each their own!
  • Even though for many of you, it is ridiculously cold out (with the exception of Florida... 85 degree humid weather over here! blech), so probably the last thing on your mind is bronzed skin. However, a major spring trend are bronzed cheeks! Don't go too overboard with this though, because you want to look like you have a natural glow, not like you came out of the Jersey Shore tanning salon.
Here are some of my product picks for this season's hottest trends!
