Makeup Trends for Spring 2012. This spring brings warm, luminous faces with just a hint of colour, with either a focus on soft eyes with sheer pastel colours and well-defined brows; bronzer for a sun-kissed glow on the cheeks and eyes; or metallic and sparkling shadows in lighter shades paired with soft pink, coral shades on the lips. There will be bright, vibrant colours of course, but toned-down versions of neon shades that were hot last summer. Smoky eyes will return, paired with bronze lids. Eyes will be lined with pastel shades of green, lavender, silver and soft baby blues. For women who crave colour, Spring 2012 offers an array of pastel options. Muted pink, light blue, and soft lavender are ready to hit store shelves. Also, expect to see colours such as “eggshell” and “ivory” make a comeback. The lighter the tint, the better. Remember spring 2012 is all about subtle colour.

Blusher is the most flattering beautifier out there. It makes anyone look ten times fresher, healthier, more awake – in fact let’s just say prettier. Placement is crucial, you need to sweep from the top of your cheekbone upwards and bring to the corner of your eyes, for that gorgeous glow. If you have pink undertones in your skin, choose a peachy blush; if your skin is more yellow based, steer towards pinks.
