Spring Beauty Trends

In Australia, our favourite season Spring is already in full swing. So with weather warming up it's time to give your makeup routine a spring clean and embrace this season's beauty trends. As featured in Myer's My Beauty catalogue for Spring 2011, this season's lips make a statement in rich shades of pink, red and orange. For eyes are intense with bright colours in single shades of green, orange and teal. This spring is certainly about bright vibrant colours for eyes, lips and nails. 

TREND 1. Bright Bold Nails 

Revlon's glamorous new Top Speed Nail Enamel provides amazingly quick colour & glossy, salon-smooth nails in just 60 seconds! With the built-in top coat these new runway-worthy shades are perfect for the glamour gal who loves effortless beauty with maximum results. 
32 cool colours to chose from means that there is a colour perfect for every occasion! 
Bright bold nails will be this Spring's hottest fashion accessory. We love Revlon's hot new shades in Electric (a sunshine yellow), Chilli (a bright fiery red) & Lava (a magenta pink).

TREND 2. Bright Fluorescent Eyes

Create a spring sensation with pretty peepers by adding a wash of colour to your eyes in shades of lime green, bright orange, lemon yellow, aqua blue and royal purple.  The key to pulling off this look is pairing your bright eyeshadow with a neutral lip in soft pink or peach. 

Our favourite vegan eyeshadows are Lime Crime's Magic Dust. These vibrant shades can be used wet for an intense vibrant look or dry (over an eyeshadow primer) for a super pigmented look. The perfect spring eye colours are Lime Criminal (a bright lime green), Circus Girl (bright golden yellow),  Empress (vibrant royal purple), Troubadour (shimmery turquoise) & Shoe Addict (vibrant ocean blue). 

TREND 3. Statement Lips

The hottest runway trend this spring season is bold statement lips in shades of siren red, fuchsia, magenta and orange. This daring look will certainly stop traffic! Pair your picture-perfect bold lips with nude/naked eyes, simply lined with black eyeliner for definition. 

For runway-ready lips we love Napoleon Perdis DeVine Goddess Lipstick in their new limited edition colour Artemis. This nourishing lipstick glides on smoothly, leaving a just-been-kissed flush of romantic rosy pink. Perfect for date night or lunch with the girls. Napoleon says it's "Swoon-worthly lipstick" and we agree it brings a new meaning to the word divine. If this shade is not your cup of tea, don't worry, Napoleon has created lots more desirable lipstick shades. Our other DeVine Goddess favourites include Calypso (a bright fuchsia pink) and Aphrodite (a sexy siren red). 

TREND 4.  Sweet & Fruity Fragrances 

When it comes to Spring & Summer, fresh floral fragrances and sweet summery scents are a beauty-must in any Glamour Gal's daily beauty routine. 
Just in time for Spring and Summer our favourite diva and new celebrity mum Mariah Carey  has release 3 brand new scents, Lollipop Splash The Remixes. This new collection features vibrant purse-friendly-size bottles in bright pink, orange & magenta. Each bottle includes Mariah's signature butterfly cap with matching candy bling gift boxes. The new scents named after popular Mariah songs, Never Forget You (orange), Inseparable (pink) and Vision of Love (magenta) follow her best selling Lollipop Bling fragrance collection. 
With ingredients like french macaroon, coconut, vanilla beans, raspberry and pink musk they smell almost good enough to eat, almost! 

This spring it's time to ditch the dull and embrace vibrant & bold colours! From fuchsia pink to siren red to vibrant orange, this season is all about experimenting with colour and putting the fun back into your beauty routine!
