Hey Beautiful friends, it’s Hollie here, one of Nicoletta’s contributing writers!
Spring is one of my favorite times of the year, the weather is perfect and the makeup trends are always bright and fresh! The two trends that have been popping up across every runway right now are the bold brow and the bright lip. Bold and bright in the same sentence may sound intimidating, but I promise you that it can be very wearable!
I left the rest of my face very simple, I really wanted the focus to be the brows and lips. I love this style because it can be worn for any occasion, and it looks very put-together. It’s also super easy to create! All you need is your favorite bright lipstick and an eyeshadow that matches your hair color.
MAC Mystery is my personal favorite eyeshadow to fill in my brows with. My brows are naturally on the thicker side, but I still have patchy areas. To define my brows, all I did was fill in the sparse areas with an angled brush. If you have thin brows naturally, you may want to exaggerate your shape a bit. It only takes me a minute to do each brow, and it makes a huge difference! Where bold brows have been spotted: Jason Wu, Hervé Léger, Tracy Reese, Rag & Bone, Honor, Rachel Roy, Zac Posen, Belstaff, Narciso Rodriguez, Reem Acra, and Marc Jacobs.
The bright lip trend looks great with any vibrant color. I chose to do a bright red lip, using MAC Brave Red and Milani Rose Hip. I applied a thin layer of Milani Rose Hip first, to make my red lipstick really pop! I adore these lipsticks, because they last all day without fading and they feel comfortable! Where bright lips have been spotted: Dolce & Gabbana, Oscar de la Renta, Akris, Prada, Missoni, Jean Paul Gaultier, Rochas, Paul Smith, Giles, and Richard Nicoll.
I hope you are inspired to try the bold brow and bright lip trend for Spring 2013!
