Some make-up trends for spring-summer 2012

For those of you who wants to change and experiment with your make-up in hotter days, I have prepared a few looks from spring summer 2012 runways. Among many different looks there were styles that you can schedule in your make-up notes 🙂

Red lips in different shades (top photo): Dior and Donna Karan among others have designed their make-up with focus on the lips with statement colors from deep red to bordeaux wine or bright red. Sophisticated and always chic!


Strong eyebrows: were presented as a masculine inspired look. Designed with a thick strong line or blended well it doesn’t matter, the key is to emphasize them and exaggerate. For courageous one!

Derek Lam - Altuzarra


Eyeliner in all its forms: There were wings on the eyes at many shows: from 60’s inspired, to penciled and natural looking or colored with thick lines and long extended. Retro glamour with a modern twist!

D&G - Jonathan Saunders


Smoky eyes:  Even though they are not a total spring look, they were reinvented on many shows: black with addition of gold metallic pigments, in natural earth tones and those mixed with dark blue colors. Sexy and mysterious!

Versace - Rodarte


Silver sparkling: This look reminds me more of a frost winter, but can be very nice worn even in spring, especially on pale skin. There were many options how to interpret silver on the eyes: all over shading on the eyelids, silver eyeliner or a strike of silver just in the crease of the eye. Futuristic!
