For those of you who wants to change and experiment with your make-up in hotter days, I have prepared a few looks from spring summer 2012 runways. Among many different looks there were styles that you can schedule in your make-up notes 🙂

Red lips in different shades

Dior and Donna Karan among others have designed their makeup with focus on the lips with statement colors from deep red to bordeaux wine or bright red. Sophisticated and always chic!

Strong eyebrows

were presented as a masculine inspired look. Designed with a thick strong line or blended well it doesn’t matter, the key is to emphasize them and exaggerate. For courageous one!

Eyeliner in all its forms

There were wings on the eyes at many shows: from 60’s inspired, to penciled and natural looking or colored with thick lines and long extended. Retro glamour with a modern twist!

Smoky eyes

Even though they are not a total spring look, they were reinvented on many shows: black with addition of gold metallic pigments, in natural earth tones and those mixed with dark blue colors. Sexy and mysterious!

Silver sparkling eyes

This look reminds me more of a frost winter, but can be very nice worn even in spring, especially on pale skin. There were many options how to interpret silver on the eyes: all over shading on the eyelids, silver eyeliner or a strike of silver just in the crease of the eye. Futuristic!

    I love the thick eyeliner for a night out! The red lips are gorgeous, but I can’t find a red lip that has a good ingredients in it. I was thinking about experimenting and making my own.
