This is Beauty 2012

New season, new hair and make up.
Get ready for fresh looks and Inspirational extremes.
Spring/Summer beauty!

YSL spring '12

This season is no different and make-up is fun again. From choosing your place on the hair-textures spectrum, embracing vintage metallics, working a perfect peach or creating " danced -in" skin, here are the trends you need to know.

If last season was all about the " powerful woman" then s/s'12 is her younger sister's turn!

Nicole Farhi

Charlotte Tilbury


Bright lips were conspicuous by their absence this season, so flowery-inspired techniques stood out:
Rosebud lips at Erdem, tulip pink at Issey Miyake and a burting orchid effect at Prabal Gurung.

(I like Revlon super Lustrous Lipstick in wild orchid )

Issey Miyake



Max Mara, Versace, Louis Vuitton and much more.. Peach is the new bronze. 
Why? because it's warming to the complexion and has a flattering effect to the face.
Make up maestro Path McGrath ( i have wrote about her in my previous posts)
 used peach at most of her shows. including Prada and Gucci - to create highlights and make the skin look healthier. It makes the models look sunny and gorgeous without the illusion of a tan.


(I like Blush Horizon de Chanel)

The blues

This was the surprise hit of the summer catwalks.
Blue is usually wintery look.
The early twentieth century provided the inspiration  - there were sparkle at Ungaro and Gucci


Art deco shapes at Rodarte

Eyeshadows applied heavily up to the browbone then smudged out.

Craft Works

Makeup artists looked beyond the traditional this season.
Again :) Pat McGrath did eyelid sequins at Givenchy, pearls at Chanel and the crafty use of pink card and black tape in place of eyeliner at Victor & Rolf and Richard Niccol.

Victor & Rolf

both Chanel

( can try our Mac lashes by Gareth Pugh )


Metallic make up took on a vintage rather than futuristic feel.
Eyes were burnished in muted shades of silver and bronze.

Mark Fast


( i like MAC Metal X eyeshadows)

 make-up artist  Peter Phillips says that this will be the season of strong brows.
At Chanel, Kenzo, Jil Sander he filled them in using deep brown eyeshadows rather that traditional pencil. He explains that it enhances them without being obvious.

Jil Sander

( i like Chanel Ombre essentielle in Mahogany)

I hope that this Post will be useful  for you in your everyday life or working for projects :)

Have a nice week :)
