Makeup trends for spring summer 2009 - get inspired by the hottest makeup trends like the new lip color trends, eyeshadow colors, face makeup or smokey eyes.

The new season brings softness, freshness and optimism into makeup.
Natural tones are combined with bright, vivid ones. The new make-up trends are all about fresh pink flushed cheeks, strong eyes (throw back inspiration from the '80s), colorful hues from fuchsia to aquamarine tones.

Trend: Sexy Pout
New lip color trends are not much different from the trends seen for last season, however reds brighten up a little - from cherry to coral, fuchsia or wine tones.

Trend: 'Bare' Face
The 'no makeup look' is back. All you need is a sheer foundation, a pink-ish blush and a touch of brown mascara. For the lips, use you favorite lip balm or a clear lipgloss and you're good to go.

Trend: Highlight and Contour
Well structured cheekbones are a huge trend for spring/summer 2009.
Makeup artists use this contouring technique, but it's time for you to learn how to define and enhance your features for sculpted cheekbones, a slimmer nose or even a slimmer neck.

Trend: XXL Lashes
Beautiful long lashes gorgeously open up eyes and give you 'that thing' - according to the new trends, lashes get extra long and thick. Natural or false, black or brown, lashes have to be extra long, extra curvy and extra sexy.

Trend: Pretty Pastels
Put away your neutral eyeshadows this spring! Use your imagination and combine pastel colors for a look with lots of personality. It's not hard at all, just like playing with colored crayons.

Trend: Smokey Eyes
This spring/summer eye makeup remains generous, with dramatic accents. For a goth inspired smokey eyes look that's bang on trend, use grey, indogo-blue, brown or black - any combo is hot as long as it's dramatic.

Trend: Rosy Cheeks
If you don't usually blush, then it's time to fake it! Rosy cheeks are so hot this spring - not only make you look angelic and innocent, but will give you a young and fresh appearance.
