The Beauty Beat: Top Beauty Trends for Spring 2012

Spring 2012 beauty trends are a combination of definition and unkempt glam. From big bushy boy brows to beautiful stained lips and defined cheek bones, spring beauty is all the buzz.

Metallic eyeshadow and shoes, are making their way into my heart one shimmer at a time. Palettes made of silvery blue hues have decorated the faces of Givenchy, Philip Lim and more.

Tribal nails are the rage from Pamela Love. Painted in an upside down V shape using a light color for the base and a darker, bold color for the V. I have also seen nail rings on a few models but I just can’t get on board with that one. Stick to the nail art instead.


Bold, beautiful brows are another trend that I have a soft spot for. Since thick eyebrows are my signature, I can’t help but love this look. Some of the brows are more than I can handle but most can be designed with a simple brow kit. You may want to grow yours out a bit just for fun!

Contouring your cheeks is a must this season. As you can see in the image above and the image below, bronzer is used to create definition and make the cheekbones pop.


Soft, shimmery, dewey make-up is also something on every Gap model in their new Be Bright campaign. Make-up is soft and shimmery with subtle eyes and bright, glossy lips.


Bright electric lip color and stained lips is something I will embrace. The stained lips are matte and bold some with a multi colored look from inner lip to lip line.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  2. Very interesting info!Perfect just what I was looking for!
