Orange Lips

Orange is the next big color and it showed up on the runways on lips in electric hues as spotted at Rag and Bone, DKNY and at Dennis Basso.

No Makeup

Many designers went so beauty basic the makeup wasn’t there.  To achieve this look you just need some moisturizer and concealer, a dab of blush and a touch of liner. I usually think of this look as the weekend brunch look and I don’t feel it is appropriate for the office but designers like Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler make a good point to return to basic beauty.

Metallic Eyes 

Glitter and shimmer is all the rage for Spring 2014.  Once reserved for the tween-set, metallics are all grown up and can be used as a primary shade on the eyes or as an accent for those less bold. Charlotte Ronson, Carmen Marc Volvo and Jenny Packham

White Nails

Simple white nails are the hottest thing for Spring; and it doesn’t matter if they are matte, shiny, or glossy.  Just think White and your nails will be on trend or ready for nail art designs that are becoming the rage at Kate Spade and Nanette Lepore.

Brown Lips

Brown is back and stronger than ever as seen at Derek Lam and Chris Benz. While the look is reminiscent of a Grunge look this lighter shade is more now and really appropriate for this fall season.

Moon Manicures

The Moon Manicure continues into spring as a major accessory. Now evolving into multiple shades and colors from humble origins on the Ruffian Runway, and Lela Rose shows.

I plan on wearing the Ruffian Moon Manicure now for fall. What trend will you be ready to wear for Spring?  Or is there a trend that you will be wearing now?

This groundbreaking shade, which is custom created and not available for purchase was created by layering Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Mischievous and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Carnival together. Both shades are not yet available but will be arriving to stores in 2014; but in case you need to wear the trend now a good alternative is Tart and Trendy, a bright neutral orange lipstick cream by MAC Cosmetics.

Bright Orange lips were also seen on the runways at DKNY, Dennis Basso and Prabal Gurung.

A special tip to remember when creating this look is to protect your lips from drying out, in order for the matte look to look perfect, place a hydrating color first on your lips then a liner over the color.

Let me know if you plan on rocking the Orange Matte look for this spring or will you be wearing it sooner?
