Beauty 411: ULTA Beauty Trends for Spring 2012

ULTA Beauty Trends for Spring 2012

ULTA Beauty suggests the following top spring beauty trends with products to get the look:

1. Soft Glow

Natural nude and pink shades on lips and cheeks create a luminous and dewy look. Using an all over luminizer, dusted lightly across the face, adds a healthy glow just in time for Spring.

ULTA Beauty Recommends:

LORAC Unzipped: The Nude Collection, $34
LORAC TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer, $32
Too Faced Natural Face Natural Radiance Palette, $39
Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s up, $30

2. Metallic

A hint of metallic is fresh for spring. Metallic eye shadows accent eyes while powders with a touch of silver or gold can be used to highlight cheekbones. A super-luxe metallic is a perfect way to add glimmer to a classic daytime look or sizzle at night before hitting the town!

ULTA Beauty Recommends:

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow, $19
Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals High Shine Eyeshadow, $13
Too Faced Glamour Dust Glitter Pigment, $17

3. Brows

Too much tweezing and waxing is so last season! A bold, full brow is the trend moving into spring and textured brows are the easiest way to frame your face and express your individuality.

ULTA Beauty Recommends:

Laura Geller Brow Marker, $23
Benefit Cosmetics Brows a Go-Go, $38
Pur Minerals 3-in-1 Universal Pencil, $17

4. Eyes

From runway to realway capture the dramatic eye – it’s all about winged cat eyeliner and an extreme smokey eye this season. Feeling impulsive? Add a touch of neon or jewel-tone color in shadow or eyeliner — green and cobalt are strong this season.

ULTA Beauty Recommends:

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, $19
Urban Decay Naked 2, $50
Stila Smudge Pot, $20
Smashbox Smoke Box Eyeshadow Palette, $42

5. Lips

Lips range from luscious nudes to bubble gum pinks to classic reds with overtones of orange and coral. No matter what shade you choose, be sure your lips stand out to provide a finishing touch for your overall look.

ULTA Beauty Recommends:

Napoleon Perdis Devine Goddess Lipstick, $24
Napoleon Perdis Luminous Lip Veil, $23
CARGO Lip Gloss, $14
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick, $19

Tip: To complement all of spring’s hottest makeup trends, try bold hair color, “big” hair with 70s-inspired bouncy curls, or a sexy, polished and youthful look with a low-side swept ponytail or braid. Don’t forget to be perfectly nail polished: pale pinks, nudes and creamy shades are perfect for any age. Or, show off your exotic and wild side with hologram prints, sequins, strips and Navajo-inspired nail art this season.

    Glad to see the full brow is in. Now I can stop feeling like I have to try & find time (which I never seem to do!) to get my brows done!
