Spring 2009 Makeup Trends: Sneak Peak

Yes, I know it’s early, but I just can’t wait for spring to get here! We’re already so excited about the fresh trends for this coming season: Pinks, corals and a “summery smokey eye” are looking to be huge for the season.
Try fresh, peachy-pink blushes for a glowy, healthy look. Try similar shades for glosses and light lipsticks. Don’t go heavy though. Spring 09 is freshly flirty, ladylike and feminine. The smokey eye adds some subtle sophistication to this spring look. But still, the smokey eye should be softer than the heavier looks we saw all fall and winter. This season, try a muted gray or a soft, dark brown instead of dramatic black.

How to Create a Dramatic Smokey Eye

M·A·C Pro makeup artist Chantel Miller shows you how to create a dramatic smokey eye in this video tutorial. But (surprise!) this particular smokey eye tutorial offers an extra bit of glamour! She incorporates subtle shine and gorgeous highlights into the classic smoldering eye look.

This look is a great one for holiday parties and events, so we thought you might want to have a look now that the holiday party season is under way! The sophisticated sheen will look oh-so-gorgeous with most formal fashions and evening looks. Try it with a variety of party looks this season – think plush velvet, shiny satin, silk, and beaded party dresses! ;;)
