MAKEUP MADNESS: Spring/Summer Favorites

Not too long ago I blogged about Spring's IT colors. There's no denying that this spring and summer is all about vibrant, bold, playful, and for some of you, daring, color. Makeup trends change directly proportional with fashion trends as makeup helps complete the look of any outfit, so keeping up with the latest makeup trends is as equally as important as keeping up with fashion. Choosing to be diverse with your makeup can help you constantly change up your look to still suit your personality as well as style.

Because in order to match your makeup to your stylish new spring/summer 2011 wardrobe you need to know what's in and what's out, here are some of the most popular makeup trends from the spring/summer 2011 fashion podiums, so sneak-a-peek at the following hot looks:


NATURAL MAKE-UP: It seems that makeup artists can't get enough of the natural. minimalistic look, as this type of makeup seems to maintain its popularity this season as well. Create a flawless looking skin using concealer and makeup, define your cheeks subtly with a small tough of blush, apply mascara on your eyelashes and allow your lips to remain bare or apply a subtle, natural looking lipstick. And just for kicks, you can apply a neutral colored eyeshadow if you want to look a little more polished off. This look suits all women and all ages so it's no wonder it is oh so popular.

BOLD LIPS: The lip color shades that are attracting attention this season are red, orange and hot pink. As far as the rest of the makeup goes, try to stick to more natural by creating a flawless look using foundation and emphasizing your eyelashes using a black colored mascara and eyeliner for definition.
THICK EYELINER: Being an eyeliner fanatic, this brings music to my ears! Eyeliner is the key tool to defining the shape of your eyes. The black liner is a must but anything goes. Yes, even blue and orange. Liquid or pencil is acceptable; it's whatever you are most comfortable with. Just remember to make it thick and electric.
BRIGHT EYES: Adding bold eyeshadow colors such as orange, pink, green, blue, can definitely help you enhance your eyes and attract a generous amount of attention towards your face. Keep in mind that for this type of makeup you will need flawless skin so create it using concealer and foundation. If going that dramatic isn't your thing, brown is also big this season. Different shades will make it mysterious yet warm. Apply your favorite bright colored eyeshadow, apply a black eyeliner close to your upper lash line and coat your eyelashes with a black colored mascara. You can leave your lips bare or enhance the lips as well using a red colored lipstick.

SMOKEY EYES: It seems that the smokey eye makeup will never loose its beauty and it's no surprise why. Creating a smokey eye is not difficult and with a little bit of practice one can master this eye makeup technique. To look trendy and stylish use black and gray eyeshadow or go for dark blue to make your eyes pop.
