Makeup Trends for Winter/Spring 2011

For Winter/Spring 2011 Makeup Trends you have a diversity of looks to choose from!  Some looks are basic natural and some are breaking the taboos of the last few years.  They are fun, daring, wearable and fashionable.

  • Matte Face
  • Natural Makeup/Nude Face
  • Bold Lips: Hot Pink, Violet, Orange and Sheer Red
  • Violet Eyeshadow: Sultry and Sexy, purple metallic will stand out.
  • Bright Eyeshadow: Blue, Green, Pink or Orange
  • Red Eyeshadow.  This is a trickier look to pull off, but it’s worth a shot if you are feeling daring.  My recommendations:  Ben Nye Cherry Red Lumiere Luxe(a true red with a bit of shimmer),  MAC Cranberry eyeshadow (not so bright), Coastal Scents Prism Palette (the red in it.)
  • Bold Lips and Eyes!  In the recent past the trend is to either play up your eyes or lips, now play them both up!  Coordinate your lip color and eyeshadow boldly.
  • Smokey Eyeshadow- Always a hit, vary it up with black, gray or dark blue eyeshadows.  Add a metallic eyeshadow for the ultimate 2011 smokey look.   Blend well.
  • Natural Eyebrows.  No overplucked or heavily drawn on brows this year.  Stick with a brow powder and an angled brush.
  • Light, Natural or No Blush
  • A pop of color or a pastel eyeshadow on the inner corner of your eyes.
  • Transition to spring with lovely Easter Egg Pastel color eyeshadows.

I don’t know how I feel about the red on the lower lashline.  I think it’s neat how it matches her jacket, but I think the red line of shadow is too thick..but then it’s the runway!

Bold Eyeshadow:


Bold Lips and Eyes:  This shows both the lips and eyeshadow as pink, but you can change it to differing colors, such as the photo under the pink one.

Matte Skine with bold lips and eyes:

Purple Eyeshadow:  One of my favorites, looks good on any eye color especially hazel and green eyes.

Colorful Lipstick:

A pop of color on your inner corners of the eyelids/contrast it with your skin color to maximize the effect:

      unless you are going for a rainbow look, the best colors to go with red are neutrals, such as copper, gold, silver, bronze etc if you choose to use metallics. otherwise, regular neutrals work as well. Keep in mind the color of your skin and eyes. Warm toned beauties look good in gold while cool toned beauties look good in silver. Experiment around and tell me what colors worked for you!
