HOTTEST Spring 2013 Makeup Trends

square I am absolutely LOVING all of the Spring trends so far! And this year I am noticing that the trends are really very broad - ranging from natural to bold beauty. SO, with that being said I really wanted to share some of the hottest Spring 2013 Trends with you! Many of these trends will continue into summer, so stock up and get going on your gorgeous Summer/Spring 2013 look! Are you ready for it?

HOT Spring Trends

0856df717f355f60ce1c4ddfbde1927cNatural Beauty - a minimalist approach is really hot this Spring, with glowy skin and bare-minimum eyes, many are taking advantage of this easy and gorgeous look. Its all about the perfect bronzer and skin! I have seen some play with a hint of lip colour, or a smudge of eyeliner, but runways are taking this trend to the max, focusing only on contouring the skin. With this look, all you really need is your favorite concealer, tinted moisturizer, and bronzer. One of my favorite products for this look is Image Skincare's Prevention+ Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30.

Moschino-Cheap-Chic-Spring-2013-makeupPOP of Color - Neon colors are coming out to play this Spring, and the color in the spotlight is definitely PINK! People are playing around with this color on their lips, eyes, cheeks, and yes, even mascara! I always recommend focusing your "color pop" to one part of the face. For instance: if you are rocking a fuscia lip, do a more subtle eye. Other colors taking over this Spring include: blue, green, purple, and tangerine. Youngblood, Glo Minerals, and La Bella Donna are my absolute favorites for all of my makeup needs.

00410big_592x888Bold Brows - Something that got really hot last year was bold brows, and folks: they are here to stay! This Spring the brows are getting even bolder, so if you haven't hopped on trend now would be the perfect time. I always like to use my natural brow shape, but for those looking to go bold I definitely recommend a trip to the makeup counter to have a professional show you how its done. YouTube is also great for this!

orange-lipstickLip Luster - This season the lips are a huge focus, and there are a number of different colors that are going to take center stage. However, the one thing they all have in common is the fact that they are matte! Whether you are going for a naturally neutral lip, a luscious lilac, an outrageous orange, or a deep burgundy red, you are sure to go right so long as you choose a beautifully matte shade. Step away from your glossy comfort zone to discover something new!

I'm sure we will see an emergence of new and hott trends come once we get a bit closer to Summer. But for now I am VERY satisfied with the Spring 2013 trends. Please feel free to share your favorite Spring trends in the comments below! I always love to here from my Beauty Mates!
