Makeup trends for S/S 2012 according to Harper's Bizaar.com
"Makeup artists played with a mix of old and new for spring. Backstage inspiration boards featured rouge lip colours that seemed pulled from a vanity table drawer from long ago, futuristic glittery eye accents, timeless natural tones and indelible smoky shadows and liners done in fresh ways. The overall message: pair vintage with modern to make a statement that’s unique and all your own this season."
I think reds have been seen quite a lot in the past couple of seasons so I do not think it will make another recurrence for S/S 2014. On the other hand I believe that pinks and softer shades on the lips could and it is something I would be interested in bringing into my trend.
Big brows are also been seen a lot on the catwalks for S/S 12, again I think big brows have been used quite a lot. I do think they are going to stay around for a luttle longer as people are seeking for bigger brows but I believe there will be another twist to this whether it will be perfectly groomed, brushed up or untamed.
Skin has a flawless natural feel to it this season with a pale radiance. There are no sight of tans at the moment as skin is only just starting to be shown after a cold winter and it looks like it is going to stay that way. The pale beauty is starting to become more important in today's society, people are realising sun=skin damage and people do not want this so I believe pale will be sticking around in time for S/S 2014.
If a glow is wanted to be applied to the skin, the way forward is through bronzer and blush. These cheeks are an important element to S/S 12.
Glamorous lashes are also appearing often within the catwalks for S/S 12. Femininity is back and this is a great way to show it. I think femininity is here to stay for a few seasons especially for spring.
Cat eyes and eye liner flicks are in at the moment but I think the time is nearly over for this look. Fresh faced and youthful is something I want to interpret for my trend. The flicks have been a way of reminiscing on the Amy Winehouse look but I think it is time to move on approach something different.
Colour washes on the eyes are being brought into the beauty trends and this is something I like the look of. These are some of the looks being used on the catwalks.
Hair trends of Spring Summer
"In a season defined by minimalism and natural beauty, hairstylists channeled easy elegance for spring. The sporting life was a popular theme with styles that looked fresh from the ocean or outdoors, and classic American glamour had a big moment with polished ponytails, graceful braids, and bouncy blowouts. Still, nothing was too perfect or impeccable—deconstructed waves and undone knots and twists proved that having a bit of an edge is as chic as ever"
Wet, barely-wrung hair:
The ever popular ponytail:
The beachy wave has given way to the urban bend—a loose, louche curve in the hair that’s effortless
Sophisticated Braids and Twists
Although these trends are around at present some will progress and adapt into similar but differerent trends. I want to draw upon these trends and use some of them to come up with ideas for my S/S 14 trend. I have noticed that as a trend the looks are more feminine and slightly softer for the S/S months. This is something I will continue to do for my trend. I do not want to simply copy the looks as they have already been done, instead I will use them as inspiration.
