The fall 2012 couture season is bringing to the surface some innovative makeup looks that are bound to steal the spotlight at any event, so if you’re ready to draw inspiration for your next show-stopping look, take a peek at Dior’s couture makeup looks and recreate your favorite styles!
The collection is available since April/May 2012 and it includes:
- Pure Color Five Color Gelee Powder EyeShadow Palette in Bronze Sands
- Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid Bronzer
There’s no better way to usher in the lighter, brighter mood of the coming months than with pretty updates on eyes, lips and brows. For a fresh look at every age, I picked the perfect trend from the Spring 2012 runways that you’ll love trying out this season.
20′s: Pastel Lips and Neon Nails
Have fun with a Palm-Beach-chic pink lip offset with fluorescent orange nails—a spirited color-blocking look that went over big on the Milly runway. Keep the lip matte and your nails short and square.
Layering bright shadows, liners, blushes, and lipsticks can result in a cool, colorful makeup look that’s right on trend for the season.
Just like colorblocked clothes, there are myriad possibilites with your makeup as well. Colorblocking is so liberating because you get to throw all of those traditional ‘rules’ of makeup out the window and let your creative juices flow. But in order to make it wearable, since we aren’t all prancing down a runway each day, try to use some restraint and balance. That means highlighting one feature, rather than your entire face, to avoid looking like you got sucker-punched by a clown.
Tone down the colors and the application to make these more wearable, or if you’re feeling fierce, just go for it!
This season’s nail polishes are making their big debut and they’re the raddest of the rad. I was having a hard time choosing between all of these fresh new nail trends, so I asked some of our fave nail pros to break it down for PassionistaHub. Here, they share their top polish picks for the shades that are going to be everywhere this spring.
“2012 is all about the color green. There’s something really special about it, so you’re going to see a lot of it. Unlike last season, where we saw tons of hunter hues, spring’s iteration is pretty pistachio. Look for polishes that have creamy undertones and lots of opacity — you want the color to really stand out on your nails.
