Ladies, it has been a rough winter…cold winter days of snuggling over heaters or under blankets in bed are long gone #WINTERISOVER! Dry Lips, cracked skin and bad hair days tucked under beanies (sigh!) are over and done with. It’s time for bright colour and drama, ladies. Here is a list of Spring beauty tips that Live has compiled for you….but remember fabulousity is the only beauty that shines through.
Bold, Bright And Big Lips
From Joe Fresh’s corals to Evan Biddell’s rockin’ rouges or Lucian Matis’ fuscias, spring/summer 2013 is all about the lip. The trend can be a little daunting to pull off if you’re not used to wearing make-up, so start off small by swiping some colour on your pout and neutralizing the shade a bit with lip gloss. You can wear the lipstick matte, if you’re more daring. Just be sure to pair the look with a neutral eye.
Spring 2013 is all about saying “see ya” to your heated hair tools. It was nice to see so many of the models at World MasterCard Fashion Week sporting loose braids, top buns and bouncy curls (too often it looks like a model’s hair has been teased, flat-ironed or permed into oblivion). Let your strands go stray (seriously, it was thing at Arthur Mendonca) and embrace your lovely locks being natural.
The “Fresh” Face
Spring is about freshening up and awakening to a new season, it is no surprise to see bare-faced looks on a runway. Perfect your barely there appearance by dabbing on some lip gloss, using a tiny bit of mascara and adding a few swipes of blush to cheeks; these three small steps will give you an enviable natural glow.
A dramatic eye is still a hot go-to for evening for spring. From dark and mysterious — with black eye-liner and greyish eye shadow — to a more natural, blended effect — think browns and beiges — perfecting the smoky eye (regardless of the shade of make-up you use) is a must for next season.
Turbans And Hair Accessories
This could be the coolest and most daring beauty trend from Toronto Fashion Week: turbans. Courtesy of Soia & Kyo, this hair accessory is going to be the thing you want your hair to be whipped into place with. Not only will turbans give any outfit a serious cool factor, they’ll also hide a bad hair day in a cinch. You can also opt for clips and barrettes to hold up buns or keep braids in place.
If you think your peepers are your best beauty asset, you’ll love this look (which was featured on runways belonging to Holt Renfrew and Pavoni). Designed to complement a natural face (and, presumably, neutral clothing), many a designer featured models who had green and blue eyeliner thickly drawn on eyelids. There were even futuristic silver options at VAWK and VAWKIN. Pair this bold eye with neutral lips and a few swipes of mascara.
