The Top 15 Make-up Trends for Spring 2013

19 Jan


Created backstage and presented on the runway, next spring’s make-up trends are clean and precise with faded colors, organically lined, smoky-soft eyes and skin healthier than ever before. brings you the top 15 trends to adapt into your beauty routine this spring.


Extreme Highlighter


White and its family of hues including eggshell, vanilla and sand are used to brighten the face this spring. Highlight bone structure just where the sun hits by either generously applying the color with a few wide strokes of a make-up brush, or by using it as a topcoat to fade darker tones and make for a fresh finish. Seen at: Catherine Malandrino, Emilio Pucci and Prada. Photo: Bottega Veneta.


Organic Liner


A continuation of the graphic eyeliner trend for the fall, this more organic version for the spring follows the structure of the eye perfectly to bring out the brow bone. Seen at: Acne and Giorgio Armani. Photo: Marimekko.


White Spirit


Seen all over the spring runways, white is the color for next season to wear alone, as a highlighter at the inner corner of the eye, or in touches elsewhere on the face to brighten features. For a white-hot look, combine it with silver or platinum to accentuate the eyes. Seen at: Issey Miyake, Roberto Cavalli and Catherine Malandrino. Photo: Emilio Pucci.


Lustrous Lips


For an iridescent finish, mother of pearl was sprinkled directly over lipstick or gloss, to match an ultra-luminous skin. Seen in various shades at: Paul Smith and Giles. Photo: Haider Ackermann.


Graphic Liner


Graphic eyeliner reinforces blood orange, white and aqua blue colors for 2013. Recreate the stand-out cateye look from the runways with a thick, bold line from the inner eye, out. Seen at: Dolce & Gabbana and Ohne Titel. Photo: backstage at Fendi.


Perfect Pearly Skin


Mother-of-pearl skin is coming back with force. For a nude chic look styled with blends of pearlized, gold and beige pigments, this faded-out effect creates a well-structured look. Seen at: Christopher Kane and Alexander Wang. Photo: Alberta Ferretti.


Soft Smoky Eyes


Defined but without sharp angles,” Lyne Desnoyers, M·A·C Cosmetics make-up director, told us live backstage. It’s official, smoky has gone soft for 2013 as eye color follows the natural bone structure without completely transforming the eyes. Seen at: A.F. Vandevorst and Carolina Herrera. Photo: Chloé.


Rectangular Brows


Last year’s beauty star, structured eyebrows take center stage once again this season with straight lines for a lifted look. To be adopted in your daily beauty routine, don’t be afraid to work a tomboy regard. See at: Burberry and EtroPhoto: Lourenco.


Pigment-packed Liner


The idea is simple: eyes go deep color with matching liner and shadow. The best technique? Mix raw pigment with clear mascara and apply directly to the lashes. Seen at Donna Karan and Jérôme L’HuillierPhoto:Véronique Branquinho.


Raw Pastel Ombré


Play with high graphic colors this season and move away from conventional application. Color is applied where you wouldn’t expect for a runway worthy beauty look. Seen on Costello Tagliapietra and Altuzarra. Photo:Peter Som


Color Layering


The idea here is to play with different shades worn together on the eyes and lips. Think Neapolitan ice cream, as you layer color from dark to pale without blending, for a clear line between each shade and guaranteed depth. Seen at: Marni and Francesco Scognamiglio. Photo: Jason Wu.


Healthy Bronzer


It’s been making a breakthrough for the past few seasons, and has finally emerged as a full-blown trend for next summer. Reach for amber tones, terracotta and ochre, but make sure you hydrate to the max first for an ultra healthy look. Seen at: Alberta Ferretti, Antonio Marras and Max Mara. Photo: Suno.




Applied generously all over the cheekbones for maximum structure, this monochrome coral blush reaches up to the eyelids, where more intense color deepens the eyes. Seen at: Burberry Prorsum, Blumarine. Photo: Costello Tagliapietra.


Primary Colors


With magenta red, cyan blue and canary yellow all making a Technicolor appearance on the runway, raw, honest primary colors popped up on lips and eyes. Avoid a serious style error by making sure your skin shows through under the product. Seen at: Moschino, Marrimekko, Christian Dior and Gareth Pugh. Photo: Michael Kors.


Glowing Skin


We spotted this trend on the runways in New York first, before it spread around the fashion world. Balmy skin, hydrated until it has drunk its fill, means radiant, healthy skin. Seen at: Marni, Matthew Williamson and Balmain. Photo: Theyskens’ Theory.
