Stunning Makeup Trends For 2012

This summer there are so many trends to choose from, which is very exciting.  We are going to share all our favorite looks that have been rocking the catwalk for this season starting with Louis Vuitton’s look.

The Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 Runway Show was a beautiful look with all the models sporting fluttering lashes and twinkling headbands in their hair.  Creating a feminine, sweet doll like look, with full eyebrows, dewy skin, gorgeous nude lips and the false eyelashes are the most important characteristic for this stunning summer look.

To achieved this look applying a small amount of foundation to create a dewy finish to the skin (try NARS Sheer Glow Foundation).

Next apply a neutral taupe eyeshadow to the eyelids and the crease (try MAC Skinfinish in Medium Deep).

Apply a thin line of black gel eyeliner (try BOBBI BROWN Black or Graphite Simmer) and take this right to the corner of the eye.

Apply a highlight to the corners of the eyes, along the bridge of the nose and on the cupid’s bow (try MAC eyeshadow in Mylar).

Apply black mascara to the upper and lower lashes.

Glue 2 full sets of lashes together and once dry apply these to your eye (try Eylure Cheryl lashes).

Warm the contours of the face with a light application of bronzer (try NARS Laguna bronzer) to the temples, hollows of the cheeks, tip of nose and jawline.

Follow with a peach blush along the cheekbones (try MAC Melba).

Finally apply a nude pink/peach lipstick to the lips (try MAC Shy Girl).

As you can see this is a stunning and playful look, we hope you have fun creating your doll like look for this summer and watch out for our next post for our next summer makeup trend.
