The Best Makeup Looks For Spring & Summer 2013

Catherine Elizabeth loves the new makeup and hair trends, from all four spring/summer catwalk shows around the world!

We All Know when it comes to beauty looks, natural are always beautiful.  But so is a pop of colour on the face. Fortunately for us, the spring/summer catwalks shows around the globe, offered us both options this season.  Brilliant shades of blue and green were swept over the eyes at Stella McCartney and Versus, slicked vivid crimson on the lips at Jason Wu and Burberry, then emphasized neutral lips and glowing skin at shows like Dolce & Gabbana.  There were moments of major lashes and brows, but all of that was balanced by softly smudged eyeliner.  To emphasize this mix of strong versus subtle, play up the features you want to draw attention to with colour.  Or a touch of sparkle, which Chanel and Gucci showed beautifully this season, while keeping the rest of the look simple and glowing.

These new beauty and fashion trends for us girls translate into more excuses to get dolled up and try the latest fashion and beauty trends!  This season we are spoilt for choice, since there are so many bold and beautiful makeup looks for Spring/Summer 2013.

Here is your first installment to being bang on trend for spring/summer 2013.

Red Signals – Bright Coloured Matte Lips

Matte red lips

At first, it seemed like spring/summer would be a season of pale lips. Then red colors hit with a bang, most noticeably at Burberry where models wore a creamy scarlet hue that generated major buzz.  At Prada, makeup queen Pat McGrath went for a matte crimson, outlining the outermost part of lips in red pencil that accentuated the shape of the mouth (tip: this makes lips look bigger and fuller). All told, the season’s rouges ranged from pinky-red at Missoni and Oscar de la Renta to the classic power red at Jean Paul Gaultier to the dark and dramatic black cherry at Jonathan Saunders, proving the enduring appeal of being in the red.

Redlips

Bold, bright coloured lip colours are the perfect way to dress up any outfit, which makes them perfect for the season ahead!  The way to wear the look and be on trend now is to keep your lip colour matte, which means leave the lip-gloss at home, and keep your lip colours shimmer free! Scarlet red and neon shades like fuchsia and coral are colours that are hot right now! This trend is perfect for both day and night functions.  During the day keep your eye makeup ‘barely there’ with just some mascara and maybe pearl coloured eye shadow, if you can not do without eye shadow, keeping the focus on your lips.  For a night out you can go all out with smudged eyeliner in a neutral colour like gray, brown or black.
