SS13 Beauty Trend: Flawless Skin and Bright Lip!

Maybeline ColorSensational Lipstick in 912 Electric Orange

As you have noticed last month was mainly about skincare, but this month there will be a lot more beauty looks, starting with... It's not very often that I enjoy wearing a bare eye make-up look, but in this case it's with the bright lip so I can manage! This type of look would be great for a beach or on a very hot and sunny summer day with a bit of tan... It was inspired by one of the SS13 beauty trends... The flawless skin with a bright lip trend encapsulates a bare and natural looking face mostly highlighted, keeping everything else pretty pale making the bright lip pop... 

This trend is not for everyone, as are most of the beauty trends! You have to remember that a teenage girl's [the model] skin is already pretty flawless to start of with... Most of us do not look like runway models - so the beauty trends have to be personalised to your own skin type and complexion... On me bare eyes don't look great, my eyes look small when undefined, equally pale skin with no bronzer or blush looks absolutely awful on me... So just have a good look at your face and try to bring out your best qualities and don't do something just because it's on trend!

On my eyes I used MAC Paint Pot in Nubile and MAC Eyeshadow in Naked Lunch over it... In my waterline I applied The Body Shop Eye Definer in Moonstone to brighten up the eyes even more... The face I kept quite highlighted but definitely adding warmth with the bronzer... I used Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic, blending the darkest and the golden shade for contouring, then the darkest with the bronze as a blush, and the golden with the lightest as a highlighter - I mentioned this quite a few times before but I absolutely love this bronzer - you can blend different shades to create whatever you want or feel like! 

And on the lips of course I used my beloved Maybelline ColorSensational lipstick in 912 Electric Orange! They are a must-have this Spring\Summer!! I just adore the super bright pigmentation, the beautiful colour selection and how moisturising they feel! For more shades and my full review click here!
