Eye Makeup Trends for Spring Summer 2012

Rodarte smoky eyes spring 2012

On the contrary to the laid-back hair trends, spring 2012 makeup is definitely going to be turning heads. Let me put the record straight: eyes are the focal point of the most enchanting spring ensembles. The intense eye look obviously requires more preparation so plan your beauty schedule carefully so as not to get fashionably (too) late. Caution: these makeup trend ideas are definitely not suitable for a visit to the grocery store.

Eye makeup trend #1: Smoky eyes

Women’s favourite eye makeup trend taken to the extreme! Spring 2012 catwalks (especially Gucci and Rodarte) abounded with exaggerated metallic and gilded chrome eyes perfect for a night in the town. How to create this captivating raccoon eye look? Play up the drama with your favourite smoky eye set and get proud by practicing.

Eye makeup trend #2: Metallic eyes

It’s not actually the simple eye shadow makeup artists placed on models’ eyelids in Fendi to brighten eyes with metallic definition. This time it was a graphic metallic element, the ultimate gold and silver high shimmer reminiscent of the foil. Go for this theatrical and reflective look anytime you aim to create a vivid statement.

Eye makeup trend #3: Graphic eyeliner

Define your eye line to perfection with a liquid eyeliner for all-out dramatic look. Precise contouring is necessary to achieve a flawless winged eyeliner makeup we’ve seen in Jonathan Saunders. Go with a thick black cat-eye with an upward flick and bring the other the line back onto the crease. Very mod fashion-esque.

Eye makeup trend #4: Pop of colour

Whether you choose a daring vampire red (as seen in Miu Miu), or a dreamy blue (as seen in Vivienne Westwood Red Label) remember to apply the shade smoothly and evenly on the entire eyelid. Going bright and bold on the lids requires low-key clothing and barely there lips since highly pigmented eyes draw a lot attention.
