Spring/Summer 2011 Make up Trends

Bright, Bold in your Face Make-up! 

Like Fashion Make-up moves with the seasons and it can really add to an outfit and complete a look. So spice up your wardrobe and your make-up bag with the amazing trend for Spring/Summer, but make sure the make-up suits your skin tone and don't just wear it because its trendy! Sooooooooo.... whats Hot this year?

 Bold Bright Lips
Red, Orange as well as Hot Pink (my fav) are just some of the colors which are rite on trend, use a matte version of these shades and keep the rest of your make-up very natural use your favorite foundation and powder and emphasize your eyes with lashings of black mascara also use black eyeliner on the root of your lashes to create fuller looking lashes.


Bold Lip


Almost Nude.
Keep it natural... pretty must your trying to achieve the "I'm not wearing make-up" even when you are look. Use a foundation, concealer and a light translucent powder to get the flawless looking skin look, use a touch of blush on the apples of the cheeks, a coat of mascara and leave the lips natural or use a very natural looking lipstick and your done and also on trend!


Natural Look.

Bright Eyeshadow
Wearing bright bold eye shadows is a great way to attract attention to your eyes and its a change from the usual browns or black. I love this look but don't think I'd be brave enough to try it it'd be great for a night out but can be hard to pull off. Orange, Pink, Yellow, Green and Blue seem to be the colors to try out, if your gonna go mad and try one make sure and use it in block colors with a heavy black liquid liner along the lash line and loads of mascara and keep the lips very natural or if your really brave go for a contrasting colors like... Bright lime green eyes with a red lip. (hmmmm not for me!!!)

Bright Eyes.

World Of Inspiration.

 Where do i get my inspiration? ..... eh EVERYWHERE from nature to celebrities to something in a film music video or even cloths or funky shoe's or jewelry! As long as it's colorful u can use it to create a make-up look  from mad eyeshadow to bright eye catching lips. The colors of the season are very bright coloured eyes wit nude or contrasting lips, like lime green eyeshadow with a touch of liquid liner and lashing of mascara or equally bright lips and a natural eye. Magazines are also a great way to get inspiration and to keep up on trend looks and to see what looks models or celebrities are supporting, I love going through heaps of magazines and trying to copy or tweak looks for nights out! :)


Magazine Clippings. 

Rihanna is a personal favorite when it comes to make-up she supports many different looks, In her new video "Who's that chcik" Rihanna is wearing a very bright on trend yellow eyeshadow with a touch of green and a defined crease with a bright hot pink lip. Another up and coming singer I am loving is Jessie J who in many recent interviews is wearing heavy black liquid liner very like the MAC Autumn/Winter Satin Eyes look which i love!

MAC Autumn/Winter Satin Eyes 

The 1st Of Many....

This is something i did for my college portfolio a few months ago something a little crazy to start this whole blogging thing off :) Its like a mad Barbie gone wrong look with a lot of colour and back combing to the hair! I don't no why I started putting eyeshadow down her cheek but it seemed to work then just to brighten and define the eyes I lined them with the Blue Metal Liner and used the Blue Rose Pink on her lips in the style of the Geisha Girls.

The model was my good friend Jessica.
