The holiday season is the time of the year when most people have the most parties and functions to attend … which for us girls translates into more excuses to get dolled up and try the latest trends,fashions and beauty looks! And since there are so many bold and beautiful Spring/Summer 2013 makeup trends that would be perfect to wear to the parties and outings this the festive season, I thought I would share five of the hottest ones right now!
1) Bright Coloured Matte Lips
Bold, bright coloured lip colours are the perfect way to dress up any outfit which makes them perfect for the festive season! The way to wear the look and be on trend now is to keep your lip colour matte … which means leave the lip-gloss at home, and keep your lip colours shimmer free! Scarlet red and neon shades like fuchsia and coral are colours that are hot right now! This trend is perfect for both day and night functions … During the day keep your eye makeup ‘barely there’ with just some mascara and maybe pearl coloured eye shadow (if you must have eye shadow), keeping the focus on your lips. For a night out you can go all out with smoky eye in a neutral colour like gray, brown or black. Personally I love the neon lip shades for summer and these lipsticks are what I use to get the look.
2) Sparkly and Mettalic Eyeshadow
If you’re a fan of glitter and shimmer then no fear, just keep it on your eyelids and you will be on trend! Metallic and shimmery smoky eye makeup is absolutely perfect for a night out! If you use neutral coloured eye shadow to get the look pair it with the bold coloured matte lips mentioned above and you’re good to go! If you’re going with a more fun colour like the aqua blue in the picture above then stick to a nude lip colour and keep the focus on your eyes. This Stila eye shadow palette is perfect to create some smoldering metallic looks for a night out during the holiday season!
3) 60’s Inspired Makeup
Bold eyeliner, eyelashes and eyebrows paired with matte skin and nude or red lips is what makes this sexy all eyes on my eyes look! This is another look that’s perfect for a night out and because it’s usually done with neutral or nude eye shadow shades it ends up having that sexy but sophisticated look which is perfect for the office party! Here’s how to take the look from the‘Runway to the Real way’.
4) Colourful eye makeup
Pops of colourful eye makeup in the form of eye shadow, eyeliner and even mascara is a huge trend for summer and can be perfect for day or night holiday events! Pink, aqua blues and green are some of the most trending makeup colours at the moment. Although these looks from the runways don’t look very wearable there are lots of wearable ways you can wear the trend … For day time a hint of aqua blue or pink eye shadow just swept across the lid with some mascara or just a line of aqua blue or green liner on the lower lid would be perfect. For night time you just have to add some liquid eye liner and maybe a bold lip and your good to go! You can see how I wear aqua eye shadow for a summery daytime look here.
5) Very Dramatic Lashes
Dramatic lashes are always trending in my books, but the kind of lashes that are trending now are extremely long, extremely full, and obviously fake … While this look can really bring out your eyes and make anyone look gorgeous, it’s probably best left to be worn at night if you are going with fake lashes. This is how I get my everyday dramatic lash look sans the fake lashes.
