Forget the skinny lines and go for thicker ones when it comes to eyeliner this season. The runway makeup for spring 2013 showcased diverse looks using eyeliner, from the smudged softness used by Lanvin and Roberto Cavalli to the retro style shown on the catwalk at the Miu Miu and Mugler shows.
Experiment with the eyeliner while keeping away the thick coats of mascara for the best look inspired by the spring 2013 makeup trends.
Red Matte Lips
Bold bright lips, a look traditionally reserved for the fall/winter season, is a major trend this spring, thanks to Burberry, Prada and Jason Wu.
Whether you choose bright reds or sophisticated shades of plum, make sure you use a matte finish to get one of the hottest looks of spring/summer 2013 makeup.
Gorgeous False Lashes
If you’re not willing to experiment with eyeliner, try big false eyelashes. While Gaultier went for a curled look and Gucci preferred straight for a fresh spin on the Twiggy look.
Big eyelashes place a lot of emphasis on the eye, especially in daring combinations like the one used by Moschino with white liner, so combine this trend with nude lips.
A few older trends have returned to the runway makeup for spring 2013, but none is as popular as the revival of ample eyebrows. From Marc Jacobs to Anthony Vacarello, the thick eyebrows are back with a groomed look, enhanced with pencils and brow powder.
The best way to get on the power brow trend fast is to brush brow hairs down then use a pencil fill in sparse ares or create a contour, making your eyebrows fit right in with the spring 2013 makeup trends.
If smokey eye is one of your favorite looks, tweak it a bit to get on trend this season, turning it into a day look. As seen during the Marc Jacobs show, the smokey eyelids could end up being a stable of the runway makeup for spring 2013.
Reduced in size, the smokey eye is focused on the eyelids and works best with a clean and bare look for the rest of your face, to prevent it from becoming too much for daywear.
Perhaps inspired by emerald, the Pantene color of the year, makeup artists flocked to vibrant shades of blue and green with a posh finish, as seen in the Moschino, Stella McCartney, Gucci and Kenzo shows.
From turquoise to bright aqua, the looks works best minimal color in other areas and can adorn the upper or lower eyelids with shades of blue or streaks of green. For an evening look based on this spring/summer 2013 makeup trend, experiment with a few sparkles around the eyes.
Fresh and natural is perfectly fashionable this season if you’re not interested in stronger colors. The Dolce & Gabanna glowing look isn’t just about natural beauty as it adds a lovely glow using a few simple tricks.
A light-reflecting primer is the best way to start, followed by liquid foundation applied with a brush. Using a highlighter on the high points of the face helps achieve this trendy looks, along with combining 2 or 3 types of blush for rosy natural cheeks. Nude lips and a touch of mascara complete this fresh look, considered one of the most important spring 2013 makeup trends.
Dior, Chanel and Gucci used plenty of metallic eyeshadow to add a cool twist on an almost nude look. Keep it on your eyelids and you can’t go wrong this season.
If bright eyelids aren’t your style, you can sport the look using neutral-colored eye shadow with metallic accents and bold red matte lips.
