Makeup trends!  

7 comentarios

Hello again people! Yes, I know it's been at least 1 week since my last post... lazy is my middle name.
But here I am again, bringing you the latest trends in makeup :) Since I run out of trends for clothing and accessories I remembered that well, I do put makeup on sometimes, so why not research a little on what's hot?

Let's take a look at trends in each category:

  • Skin: matte and uncolored or glowy (great for summer looks if you are tanned)
  • Blush: pink :)
  • Lips: any shade of pink to almost white / bright red
  • Eyes: gold with smokey eyes, silver (icy eyes), pink/violet, deep colors like green, coral, blue, yellow.
Overall I'd say pink is the color for makeup this summer: blush, eyes, lips.

I did a small hunt in Etsy to bring you the handmade products we can use to achieve this looks, and here is what I found:

Sellers, from top to bottom, left to right, are (link to the item): PureMineralsSource, pinkquartzminerals, Clearmineral, MineralMakeup, anaaya, pinkquartzminerals, PureMineralsSource, beautybysaria, MixologyMakeup, PureMineralsSource, Clearmineral, Backtotheearth, PureMineralsSource, Clearmineral, Lollibomb, beautybysaria

If you are the kind of girl that doesn't use heavy makeup I think you won't really care about makeup trends, but on what makes you look best. I'm one of those girls. When I go to work I only use a bit of concealer (aarrgghh dark circles!), and sometimes a bit of mascara. If I go party at night then I wear some eyeshadow, mascara, sometimes eyeliner, blush, ya know, the whole kit. For me what is most important is what kind of eyeshadow to wear to make my eyes nicer.
Eyeshadow color depends on your eye color, and blending in etc depends on the shape of your eye/face.

I found some kits for different eye colors in Etsy, I really like their colors:
I'm a mix between brown and green eyes, so depending on the day I choose one or the other style :)

A couple articles on eye make up for different eye shapes:

shapes of eyes and how to enhance them with make up
Eye Makeup for Different Eye Shapes

And if you want to get the whole star look, I found this super awesome videos on youtube that describes step by step how to achieve different looks from videoclips or famous girls: amy winehouse look, leona lewis bleeding love, britney spears I'm a slave for you, and a big etc

Amy Winehouse eye liner makeup inspired look
LEONA LEWIS - Bleeding love inspired make up look
DUFFY -Mercy make up inspired look

I have to say for me it's a little difficult to understand her because of the accent lol but I'm sure for native English speakers will be easier ;)

Hope you enjoyed this makeup review and that it helped you a little, maybe?
Tell me if you liked it, what is your favourite makeup/look, what you think looks better depending on the eye color, and, very important if you know, how to make the dark circles under the eyes go away???? (or at least be less visible... mine are sort of a genetic thing so no way to get rid of them I suppose)

Next time: I don't know yet! Need new and fresh ideas ;)

Found the makeup trends in this blog: Beauty Care Blog

    Pretty cool video. I tend to wear a subdued look on my eyes. Lately I tried a Rimmel four colour eye shadow kit called 010 Lazy Days and it really makes my blue eyes jump out. It gets me lots of compliments so I'm pretty happy about it :o)

    Very interesting stuff! I tried neutrogena mineral foundation, and was very dissapointed, it broke me out, and mostly went flying into the air, not my face.

    I'd like to hear more reviews of mineral make ups, there are so many now!
