Beauty Spring Trends 2014

Bright Orange Lipstick

It’s safe to say that orange was the lipstick shade of the season, being spotted all over the Runways in various hues in the color family. To get the look from DNKY, makeup artists mixed Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Electric Orange and Neon Red. Mix on the back of your hand, apply, and then blot for a slightly matte finish.


Blue Eyeshadow

Blue eyes, as bold as you wish, are a big trend this season. They came back in 2013, and keep going strong. But this season there’s something for everyone: from subtle liner to blocks of shadow.
At Marc by Marc Jacobs, models wore a stunning rich electric blue eye shadow, solid blue from lash line to crease. While at Badgley Mischka, powdery blue shades were layered to create a disco-like look. My favorite product, to recreate this look, of course? Kiko Eyeshadows.

Glowing Skin & Eyes

At Philip Lim, Makeup Artists used a mix of Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and Copacabana liquid Illuminator to give the skin some glowing. At J. Mendel, they applied Revlon Skinlights in Bronze to the cheeks, bridge of nose, and forehead with a wet sponge. Models at Dolce & Gabbana had halos of warm apricot blush and at Michael Kors, faces showcased healthy, wealthy tans with killer cheekbones. Now that’s a look I would like to wear everyday.
But not only skin glowed, also the eyes. You could find the white eye makeup trend all over the place. A wash of iridescent whites and pinks at Alice + Olivia, gave lids a dewy freshness. At Tibi, white eyeliner and shadow rimmed inner corners of eyes, and created a cool cat-eye across the lids on top.

Black Eyeliner

Whether it is Graphic eyeliner or the all-famous Cat-eye, get your black liquid liner ready. You could both see graphic liner with straight flicks and angular shapes, making the retro obsession instantly more modern, but still super-sexy (at Anya Hindmarch and Roksanda)
But also, once again, chic cat-eyes are big for spring. Makeup artist Mally Roncal (who created the look for Tracy Reese) said she used a thin cotton swab dipped in makeup to always get a clean line.
I use Kiko's Lasting Gel Eyeliner. Dries really fast, but doesn't smear, no matter the circumstances!
