Make-up Trends for SS10

Continuing with our theme of Spring-Summer 2010 fashions, here are the make-up trends that I'm marvelling at right now:

Luminous skin: When is luminous skin not in fashion I ask! Use light-reflecting foundations, powders and highlighters for a fresh-faced,healthy look. Avoid product overload however or else your skin will just look shiny.

Sunkissed Skin: Ah you gotta love a bit of bronze! Tinted moisturiser, bronzing powders, bronze/gold shadows etc.

A Tale of 2 Eyebrows: This season’s brows are either very strong or else bleached out. Talk about a dichotomy! As your eyebrows frame your face, the bleached look is hard to carry off. Strong brows are a more flattering and easy look, in my humble opinion.

Lovely Lips: Strong lip colour is very much in fashion. However, like the eyebrows, nude colour is also en vogue. The common thread seems to be a matte texture; keep the gloss to the eyelids (see below).

Smokey eyes: We’re finding it hard to relinquish this Winter favourite. Make an easy transition to Spring by choosing lighter hues (e.g. inky shades, petrol greens etc.).

Glossy Eyelids: This is a great editorial look, but perhaps not the easiest day-to-day look. Nonetheless, nothing will have you looking trendier this season than a slick of gloss over your eye-shadow.

Yours in style,
