A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.


Spring 2011 Color Trends

Color is what spring is about. Vibrant, crank-up-the volume color transforms everything around us especially in beauty and fashion. Here are some of the hottest hues right now...

PINK: Honeysuckle showed up on the runways abroad. It is THE pink shade of the year. Be daring and pair it with other brights or tone it down with neutrals like sand, beige or khaki that won't compete. Add it to your beauty routine with a bold lip. The color actually lights up your face. Try PAUL & JOE Lipstick in Poppy/$20.

CHARTREUSE: Citrus is quite refreshing on a warm day. Brighter tones pop against dark complexions and deeper muddier versions are pretty on fair skin. Add some sunshine to your eyes with a pop of eye color on G.N.O. One of my favorites is Bitter from MAC Cosmetics/$14.

TURQUOISE: This tropical blue is a spring/summer staple. It's perfect with contrasting or nude accessories! Mimic runway trends by wearing a solid wash of the aquatic color as pictured. For eyes, I like MAKE UP FOR EVER Matte Turquoise 4/$20. Use as a cream shadow or rim the lower lash line for a eye-brightening look that lasts all day.

Other fun colors for spring include tangerine orange, purple and cobalt! These colors can rev up any ensemble or accent your beauty look. For makeup application be sure to find the right tone for your skin and focus on one feature with bright shades. Go ahead, explore the rainbow!
