Fashion/Hair/Makeup: 2013 Spring/Summer Makeup Trends!

So what’s hot this season for Eyes and Lips?
According to, Lisa Niven,, “Matte lips and jeweled eyes with colored eye liner were very popular at this years 2013 Spring/ Summer Show.”

All about Eyes

According to,,”Eyes were the focus at shows throughout all four fashion weeks, with Donna Karan and Altuzarra in New York, Clements Ribeiro and Christopher Kane in London, Gucci and Versace in Milan and Chanel and Dior in Paris all choosing to draw attention to coloured liner, jewelled lids and extra-long lashes.”


According to,,”… matte lips at the likes of Giles, Rochas and Burberry Prorsum pepped up pared-back beauty looks, whilst Marc Jacobs and Moschino’s Sixties focus held its own against the Nineties grunge liner at of Lanvin and 3.1 Phillip Lim.”

How can we achieve this Runway -Vogue look to our everyday lives?

I like to view any Runway show, as a Fashion Art display. Meaning that the models may wear everything from the line of Calvin Klene, but in reality, the everyday person is really meant to wear one of the pieces with their outfit. The same logic can be applied to Runway shows, displaying  make up concepts.


You are likely not going to come into the office on Monday morning wearing the Eye look, above. However you could tone it down so you could. Pick two neutral eye shadow colors, one light and one darker.  First apply an eye primer, allow to dry. Then apply the light color over the entire eye lid. Then apply the darker color to the crease of the eye. Make sure you do not apply too much, keep it very light for day/office life. Then apply a light glitter/shimmer shade right below your eyebrow and on the part of your eye lid where you placed the lighter shadow color.  You have now created an everyday on trend Eye look!


Scene the popular look for lips this season, includes a matte lip color, you should likely be fine to bring this look to work. However keep in mind the environment. Be respectful of the company dress code rules. If you are not allowed to wear black nail polish to the office, it is likely that giant bold red or pink lips look will not serve you well. Instead you can find a nice neutral or lighter shade of the red/pink and wear that.
