Wanna add some “new” to your makeup routine? Then check out these beauty trends slated to be all the rage in 2012. Think bold, bright colors, beauty enthusiasts! If you’re looking to shake up your look, these three trends are just what the beauty doctor ordered!
Colorful eyeliner will take your peepers from ho-hum to whoa in seconds! Try bright colors like aqua, tangerine, or hot pink – the bolder the better! You can rim the entire eye or keep the bright liner on the upper lashline only. This trend truly is all about making a statement. But remember to keep lips to a simple pink or peach tone as the bold eyeliner will be the star! Try Almay Intense I-Color Eyeliner in Deep Jade ($6.99) or Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Lust ($19).
Creative manicures are a major trend we’ll see in 2012. From Two-tone manis to sparkles to extreme artwork, creative nails are a must-do! For inspiration, check out this slideshow or head to your local nail salon and ask ‘em about the latest mani styles! Want to DIY? There are a bazillion how-to tutorials online that provide a step-by-step guide. Or if you want all the benefits of trendy nails without the hassle, try stick-on patterns such as Sephora Nail Bling ($7) or Butter London Nail Skins ($10).
Vibrant cheeks are a must this year! Take your cheeks from bland to blushing beauty with shades of bold coral or bright pink. Don’t be afraid to be heavy-handed as the idea is to make the apple of your cheeks pop with vibrant color! Try LORAC Baked Matte Satin Blush in Flaunt ($24) or NYX Stick Blush in Orchid ($5.99).
