To perfectly match the explosions of colours and radiant hues that globally renowned designers have expertly crafted to complete the Spring Collection of 2011, an equally playful beauty look is stylishly appropriate. Poppy, diaphanous, and flowing fabrics cue in the strokes of jewel pink smoky eyes, translucent brows, and the mixing and matching of all ranges of candy colours. Easy and carefree hairstyles also come faultlessly harmonized with these, such as an effortless bun, and the entire vibrant spring ensemble is off and ready to go.
Fresh colours for facial make-up can flawlessly suit a spring outfit but one has to be careful in not overdoing it. A classic example of looking unsullied and chic at the same time is by applying an eyeful of gentle pink shades in cream-form that can be blended toward the lids and underneath the lower lash line. On top, an even lighter eye shadow can be dusted around to smoke out the eyes, giving off a sultry effect. To create depths, a black liquid liner can provide a thin etching on the inner rims and along the upper lash line, before smudging it to intensify already mascara-coated lashes. The finishing touch is a light neutral shade of lipstick which comes alive with shiny gloss.
The overall look of such a made up facade is a soft and feminine emergence of beauty, reminiscent of the “flower power” days combined with a classic Edwardian twist. It has been said that “both periods in time were very decadent and glamorous with an abundance of social periods that embodied opulence and excess.” The make-up idea influenced by it is an absolute downplay of the teasing hues, yet retained is the colourful play of varying gentle shades which any woman can apply on her own without the aid of professional make-up artists.
An elegant yet easy-to-reproduce bun is faultlessly suited as well for spring’s wardrobe collections and more particularly for the facial make-up. To make a replica of this chic style, comb a clean center part from the hair, gather a low ponytail below the nape of the neck, and twist it into a lose knot. Before securing it in place, make certain that both ears are covered to create the classic quintessence that better complements the calm shades on the face. And to counter the conservatism of the look, pulling out a few strands from the hairline would do wonders in accentuating a feminine appeal. A tortoise hairpin completes the style in exuding a debauched aura combined with a classical fashion.
For women requiring less subtle make-up tricks to better suit their flamboyant personalities and spunky lifestyles, shades of buttercup yellow, Ceylon blues, and other pastel watercolour prints sprinkled about can light up supersaturated pink lids. To fit this acid candy colours, a douse of rouge at the cheekbones, and another less heavy cerise flush can be stroked on the outer edges, extending up towards the temples. A dewy complexion crafted by applying non-matte foundation is pertinent to the style to neutralize the diverse arrays of bright colours. If not thoroughly content with the vivaciousness of this look, bleached eyebrows can exhibit an edgy, otherworldly, and unexpected element to the end product. This rosy and blushing creation also comes well-matched with low-slung, loose chignons.
