Spring Makeup Trends 2010

Okay Ladies, Spring is here! For us Southern Californians there isn’t really much difference between seasons, but the weather is getting warmer and it is time to adjust our makeup drawer! At Bliss we stay up to date on the latest trends of the seasons so that you don’t have to.

To start off, we are all starting to switch out our wardrobes for our spring/summers clothes which means we will be showing more skin. Now if you are like me and most of your body hasn’t seen the sun for about 6 months, you might be pretty pale. The best, most efficient way (not to mention safest way) to achieve a sun-kissed look is fake tanning. Now we are not talking Dancing with the Stars’ George Hamilton. There are classier ways to do it. Here are a few tips. Tip # 1 with tanning: professional tans are your best bet. If you can afford it, get an airbrush tan. It is the smoothest, most accurate tan you can get and it adjusts to your skin tone. Tip # 2: Use self-tanner on your face. Some great face tanning products are Jergens Natural Glow in the inexpensive range, Clarins Liquid Bronzer for Face, average price, and if you really want to go all out you can opt for St Tropez Whipped Bronze Self-Tanning Mouse for Face & Body or Clarins Radiance-Plus Self Tanning Cream. You can also use any of these products in between spray tans to make it last longer. And finally, Tip #3: Apply a bronzer. This will give you an overall glow and shimmer and ready for the sun!

For eyes this season we love color! Purple is a big standout and looks great with most skin types. We also like a mint shade of either shimmer or glitter for the lids. These colors that are brighter, fresher, and warmer create an alluringly natural look for the warmer days approaching.

Long eyelashes help accentuate the colors of the season. Personally, I think this is a year round trend, and it always looks great to have long eyelashes, but that is just me. This look can be achieved by using elongating mascara like DiorShow (expensive) or Maybelline XXL Extensions XX-treme Length Mircofiber Mascara (inexpensive), or you can buy some inexpensive individual eyelashes for a natural elongating look. Apply a few in the outside corners of your eye for a natural look. Or maybe for a night on the town you can apply more throughout the lashes for a fancier look.
Color is the theme this season and it is carried through to the lips as well. There has been a lot of peaches and coral on the lips to give a different look than just pink or red. You can also adjust the colors depending on your skin tone. This picture of Miley Cyrus she has some green going on the eyes with a light coral lip. There still has been a lot of color on the lips as well, mostly in matte. Just keep in mind when using a vibrate color on the lips it is good to tone it down on the eyes (and vice versa). It might be a little overwhelming!
Okay well there are some Spring 2010 beauty tips from your girls at Bliss! We hope to see all you ladies out there bold and beautiful with all the new colors. Call us soon to get started on your tans!!
