Spring Fever: Are You Ready for These Spring 2013 Makeup Trends?

18 Feb

Go Big or Go Home

In Vancouver, you can smell spring in the air. It’s the perfect time to get ready for your spring makeup palette.

Here are a couple of Spring 2013 trends on the horizon.

Big Blush

As a throwback to the 90’s, blush is back in a big way.

To get the best effect for the upcoming season’s blushing trend, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks for a flushed look. One long lasting and pretty new blush to try is Lancome’s Blush in Love.


If you don’t have blue eyes, you can still jump on the aqua trend for shadow. You can either swipe your whole lid with the color or just apply to your lash line. Try Estee Lauder’s Intense Kajal Eyeliner Duo in Black/Blue to get the look.

High Drama Lashes

If you haven’t got the picture yet, I’ll spell it out for you. Spring makeup is about drama. If you’ve never tried false lashes yet, now is the time to try on a pair like Benefit’s pin up lashes. Or, skip the faux lashes and try  Clinique’s High Impact Waterproof Mascara for a deep black effect.

Bold Lips

Now that you’re used to a deep red lip, you can carry the trend forward. Try pink lips with lots of gloss or a vibrant orange or coral shade. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in L’Eclatante will help you get the trend right. Or, tint your lips with a bold shade like Crush (a la Orange Crush) from Joe Fresh.
