Do you know how to rock fruity colors?

One makeup trend that’s rising off the charts is the use of sorbet colors, and why not? Spring is the perfect time to be fun and flirty with the hues you choose for your cosmetics and clothing. However, sorbet colors might not exactly be your speed, especially if you’re used to wearing dark grays and browns on your face.

You don’t have to completely ditch the idea of sporting these colors if you know which ones work best on your face. For instance, mint green and creamy lilac are sorbet colors that people are going crazy
for right now, according to Fitness magazine. If you aren’t sure which shades are ideal for you, see if you can try on the eyeshadow, lipstick or blush before purchasing it. This will help you become more comfortable with the idea of flaunting fruity colors.

To give your look some stability, don’t hesitate to create some hard lines with products such as liquid eyeliner around your peepers. Harper’s Bazaar magazine claims that winged eyes, as well as voluptuous lashes, will still be trending well into summer. A combination of these tips and sorbet-inspired makeup can help you look chic in the coming months.

Khloe Kardashian Odom shows off pout in nude shade

When she isn’t promoting her clothing line or reality television show, Khloe Kardashian Odom is making red carpet appearances around the world. Recently, the celebrity was present at the launch of the Glam Louder Program and Bling It On! Contest for HPNOTIQ liqueur, and she couldn’t have looked more stunning.

The Kardashian sister showed off her curves in a little, tight-fitting dress composed of horizontal red and white stripes – very summer chic! On her face, she wore a nude lipstick and only a hint of pink blush on the apples of her cheeks. Around her peepers, she opted for black mascara and a bit of black eyeliner to give her eyes some intrigue.

Just because you don’t have your own reality television show doesn’t mean that you can’t look fabulous this season! One way to fall in line with trends of the summer is to wear a neutral lipstick on your lips. Bella Sugar recommends looking for one that has a glossy finish to ensure that your appearance doesn’t fall flat. Before you put it on, be sure to exfoliate your lips to remove dead skin and give yourself a clean surface.

Isla Fisher shows off pout with glossy pink lipstick

If you’ve already got your True makeup alongside you in time for summer, you might think that you don’t need to do any more preparation for the upcoming season. However, you can always expand your knowledge of cosmetics and application by seeing what Hollywood celebs are doing on the red carpet.

One woman who can give you inspiration is actress Isla Fisher, who recently wowed crowds when she made an appearance at the premiere of “Now You See Me” in New York City. The fiery redhead knew just which features to highlight on her face with her makeup, and she showed that spring is the perfect time to rock a pink, glossy lipstick. While she chose to go bold on her pout, she kept it simple around her eyes with a little bit of silver shimmery eyeshadow to make her peepers pop. With a hint of dark mascara on her lashes, Fisher was ready to turn heads!

If you want to wear pink lipstick without looking too bold, InStyle magazine recommends trying a matte appearance. Simply dab a small amount of translucent powder onto your pout to finish off your look.

Stars shine with neutral makeup at Cannes Film Festival

Stars shine with neutral makeup at the Cannes Film Festival

Anyone who knows anything about movies will tell you that the Cannes Film Festival is one of the most prestigious film events of the year. Not only is it where some of Hollywood’s finest are recognized for their work on the silver screen, but their fashion as well! This year, numerous celebrities showed up to the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival to celebrate a year that’s already been filled with blockbuster hits.

Many of the stars who attended the event turned heads for their ensembles as well as the makeup they wore on the red carpet. Whether you didn’t get a chance to pick up a celebrity gossip magazine yet or search the Internet for Cannes Film Festival news, it’s not too late to see who wore what in front of the cameras! Some of these ladies’ fashion and cosmetic choices will likely set the tone for the upcoming season.

Emma Watson
This gorgeous celebrity has come a long way since originally gaining worldwide fame in the “Harry Potter” movie series. At the Cannes Film Festival, Watson chose to show off her natural beauty through the makeup she selected for the event. Rather than opt for a bold lipstick, she selected a subtle pink for her pout. Additionally, Watson kept it simple with her eyes – it seems that she had a bit of silver shimmery eyeshadow on her lids to brighten up her peepers. A hint of black mascara was also added to extend her natural lashes. However, there was nothing more than that on her face to showcase her stunning natural features!

Carey Mulligan
Watson wasn’t the only star who chose to tone it down for the red carpet event – Carey Mulligan, who starred in “The Great Gatsby,” also decided to wear less makeup in front of the cameras. Just like Watson, she proved that you don’t need to cake on the blush and eyeliner to look beautiful! Mulligan had a bit of dark mascara on her lashes to give them some volume, but did little else around her peepers. Instead of going with a vivid shade of lipstick, she thought it would be best to wear a nude shade on her pout, which worked wonderfully with her skin tone. It appears that Mulligan chose to skip the blush and opt for even more simplicity on her cheeks, and it suited her incredibly well.

Nicole Kidman
Another renowned actress who knows a thing or two about walking red carpets is Nicole Kidman, and she was present at the Cannes Film Festival. Kidman chose to wear a peachy lipstick on her lips that shined as she smiled for the cameras. She decided to be a bit bolder than Mulligan and Watson with her eye makeup choice, creating a cat-eye look around her peepers with mascara and eyeliner, according to My Daily. This technique was executed wonderfully to bring out the baby blue color of her irises.

Julianne Moore
At the Cannes Film Festival, many found Moore’s poofy retro dress to be a little much, according to The Huffington Post. However, she hit the right note with her makeup, which gave her a lively appearance. Moore had a bit of rouge blush on her cheeks and complemented the color with a deep pink lipstick on her pout. She also decided to create a dramatic look using black eyeliner and mascara around her eyes to truly make them sparkle.

Whether you want to recreate Emma Watson’s look or Carey Mulligan’s neutral appearance, it’s worth taking notes before you whip out your bag of cosmetics!

Say good-bye to colorful makeup in fall 2013

Say good-bye to colorful makeup in fall 2013

Is it a little too soon to be thinking about fall? Makeup artists don’t think so, and many of the cosmetics trends that are expected to take the season by storm can be found on the runway right now. Recently, Allure magazine reported on some of the makeup styles you’ll likely be seeing later this year once summer has wrapped up.

Most notably, you might want to keep your Dermablend concealer on hand, as natural, feminine looks appear to be reigning supreme on the runway. There’s no better way to showcase your beautiful features than with neutral eyeshadow, lipstick and blush, and this is what Valentino tried to stress at a recent show.

Another trend that seemed to be emerging was the glossy, nude pout. Gone are the days when women were scrambling to get their hands on bold red lipstick – now is the time to go colorless and show off your lips as they are.

If you’re used to wearing pops of color, it might be a bit challenging to tone it down a little bit. However, Real Simple magazine claims that you can easily take advantage of this trend once fall arrives by sticking to your concealer to hide your flaws and go bare.

Do you know how to bring out your inner 1920s flapper?

If you haven’t seen “The Great Gatsby” yet, you might be missing out on some of the hottest makeup trends of the season! It’s not uncommon for Hollywood to set the tone for styles in the world of cosmetics, and this movie was no different. Now, it seems like everyone wants to get a taste of the 1920s and bring out the Daisy Buchanan in herself!

The Huffington Post reported that the 1920s were all about bringing out the most of your feminine qualities through your makeup. This is why women were seen all dolled up with bold lipsticks and eyeliner – no, they weren’t just craving attention! This was the style of the day, and it was used heavily throughout “The Great Gatsby.”

Dark eye makeup was a cornerstone of style in the 1920s, and it wasn’t just flappers who rocked the look. Anyone who wanted to appear glamorous knew that dramatic eye makeup was the ticket. To achieve the perfect look from this era, Hollywood Life recommends being generous with your mascara and giving your lashes some volume. On your lips, opt for a bold red to make your pout truly stand out.

Best of all, makeup artist Pascale Poma claims that all of these hues can be worn regardless of your skin tone.

Kerry Washington knows how to flaunt her pout

One woman who knows a lot about showing off her gorgeous complexion in front of the cameras is Kerry Washington. When she isn’t acting, she’s making appearances at movie premieres. Recently, Washington was spotted at the debut of “Peeples” in Los Angeles looking more radiant than ever.

Washington decided to go glam for the event, showing off her curves in a beautiful black and white gown. On her face, she chose to use a bit of black eyeliner around her eyes and treated her lashes to an ample amount of dark mascara. However, it was her pout that truly stole the show – Washington opted for a mauve lipstick that accentuated the curves and voluptuous size of her lips. Under the lights of the cameras, she turned heads as she walked down the red carpet.

Not everyone is blessed with large, luscious lips, and you might be one of the many people out there with a small pout. That being said, don’t worry – there are many ways to create the illusion of more size! Parents Connect recommends using a lip liner to define their shape, then opting for a neutral lipstick.
