Spring Forward to 2011 trends

While I have talked about Fashion Week nail trends (here and here oh and a how-to here) I figured it was time to show some of my favorite makeup trends and how to achieve the look. So far Rachel Roy and Betsey Johnson have my favorite looks when it comes to makeup trends! Many of my favorite trends use MAC Cosmetics. However my two absolute favorites Betsey used Stila and Ms. Roy used Bobbi Brown.

Lips: Get a pale beige shade called Supremely Confident.

  1. I love all of the fresh looks for spring. And as much as I want to love DVF's makeup choice, I prefer the muted lips.

  2. I think the hair and makeup may be one of my fave parts of those fashion shows. That Rachel Roy look is so chic!

  3. I LOVE the Lica Luca look! I just think the makeup is so soft and pretty.


  4. I love the look by Luca Luca. It's so pretty and easy on the eye. The one by Rachel Roy looks more glamorous. It's perfect for a night out on the town.
