Well, spring is a few weeks away. LITERALLY! While Pantone may have Tangerine Tango as the color of 2012, another color has stolen the show for spring makeup. Think Pink, lovelies!
The great thing about pink this spring is that it doesn't matter which shade or intensity your choose. You can go with the palest pink like Urban Decay's SWF Single Shadow or as deep as Edward Bess' Compact Rogue for Lips and Cheeks in After Sunset. The key to wearing pink successfully this spring is not go monochromatic with it. If you want that pink flush all over, wear different shades and intensities. Go matte for cheeks, shimmer for eyes and creamy for lips. Or play up one feature with pink.
Also, consider pink as the new red for evening. Emma Stone's Oscar beauty is the inspiration to go for. Her rose petal pout was deep enough to complement her stunning Giambattista Valli couture gown. Her cheeks a soft creamy pink and her eyes where swept with a whisper of pink shadow and winged eyeliner. The look was flawlessly elegant with just right amount of drama to be noticeable.
If you want to copy Emma's look to the letter, check out the beauty scoop on her Oscar beauty at Allure. Lovelies, you know I am always for taking a trend and putting your own unique spin to it -- make it work for you. So play around with pinks this spring. I know I plan to be pretty in pink for spring 2012.
Catch ya later lovelies!
