2009 Spring Makeup Trends

Hopefully spring will be here before we know it so why not get our sights set on the upcoming makeup trends? Ranging from subtle earth tones to intensive brights, spring makeup seems to cover all the bases and offers great looks for those who love a full face of cosmetics and those who go for a more natural look.
Here are 4 major makeup trends for spring 2009.

Earth Tones

Spring '09 beauty trends include lots of gold - bronzed lids and faces. Apply eye makeup in earthy tones; beiges, browns, golds or plums for shadows.

Earth tone natural eye makeup quickie:

  1. Use a neutral shadow all over lid in a yellow or bisque shade. Then apply a coordinating earth tone, such as a nutmeg, in the crease and along the lower lid and blend.
  2. Apply a soft brown liner at the lash line and bottom lid, keep it subtle. For more impact, add a black liner to the top lash line.
  3. Finish off with mascara

Nudes & Purples For Nails

Nude nail colors always tend to be popular as the weather warms up. I like that the spring shades making waves for 2009 aren’t totally transparent, they do have a bit of color depth in them. Try
CND in Cocoa or Zoya Amanda.
If and when you get tired of the nudie colors, no need to worry since you aren’t destined to be wearing light pink. Chanel Le Vernis Nail Enamel in Vendetta is a deep dark juicy violet that I will wear for sure!

A Stroke of Light!

Facial highlighters are really hot this spring!
Yves Saint Laurent Teint Parfait Complexion Enhancer is a sheer highlighter that can be freely used to beautify the complexion and reveal its natural glow.
Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF15 offers sheer coverage and slight shimmer, while Estée Lauder's Ideal Bright Brush on Illuminator erases flaws like shadows and spots.

Bright & Bold

We'll be seeing bright, bold colors and "look-at-me makeup".
Think peacock blue, lime and yellow eyeshadow, with cerise cheeks and red or raspberry lips and you get the idea. So start playing with all those bright colors; just please make sure you just don't wear them all at once :)
