While we love gabbing about fashion, we also love to get glammed up! Fashion trends often relay into beauty trends so when it comes to color for your lips, eyes and toes a lot of the hues that you have in your make-up kit will resemble those that you have in your wardrobe. We are not saying that if you are wearing a red dress, that you have to wear red lipstick, or that if you love neutral colors for your clothing, you need to go bare with your makeup; however, we do recommend that you be on the look out for fun color options so that you can be "on trend" with your make up too. Like clothing, it is important to have enjoy putting yourself together!
As we have mentioned, metallic colors like silver, bronze, pewter, and gold have been hot on the red carpet- and wouldn't you know it- these are colors are on trend for your eyes, fingers and toes too! While you might not feel like you could pull of the "heavy metal" look right now with your clothing, you can still incorporate this look into your beauty regime with a fun mani/pedi in these colors, or with a great eyeshadow. This look does not have to be harsh because there are lots of lovely soft metallic options out there as far as color palettes go. Perfect for any age or skin color, soft shimmery tones look great on everyone.
Speaking of nail color, we know that many pregnant women are hesitant to use nail polish because they fear that the fumes will endanger their babies. However, nail polish is safe for mom and baby as long as you avoid the“potentially” harmful chemicals: formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP. We recommend looking at the ingredients of your favorite polish and if it gets the green light, just bring it with you the salon, so that you don't have to worry.
Another favorite color trend that is lends itself well to both beauty and wardrobe is jewel tones. Colors such as dark green, royal blue, and purple look fab when worn on the eyelid and create a rich-looking smokey eye. Great for a night out on the town, the sultry look of a smokey eye that is created with a "pop" of color rather than just the typical grey or black, really brings out the eyes. Bold and sexy, we love jewel tones for clothing and make up because they are powerful colors and make a statement.
Bares and neutrals. You've seen it already at award shows, and you will continue to see the pale color trend progress into spring. From see-through tops to sandy and muted colors, subtle colors are demure, simple and not at all boring when worn properly. Whether you want to "dare to go bare" with your clothing or makeup- make sure to pick a color that compliments your skin tone. Generally speaking, you should choose a neutral color that is darker or lighter than your skin, but never the same tone or it will wash you out.
Refreshing your color palette for spring is a great way to get excited about the warm weather and it will ease those winter doldrums!
