Most Wanted Make-Up Colors for 2013


Every season brings with it a new fashion craze, making it hard to decide which beauty products to wear. To help you we have compiled most wanted trends in makeup colors for 2013.

Red Lipstick:
Eyes are being toned down and becoming more natural in 2013 with lips taking center stage. In terms of finish, matte is in. You can choose from Burberry Lip Cover in ‘Union Red’ Shade, Clinique High Impact Lip Colour SPF15 in ‘Sassy Spice’, Anna Sui – Lip Rouge V in shade ‘Vivid’ and L’Oreal Colour Riche Serum Lipstick in Shade S503 – Bright Burgundy.

Emerald Eyeliner:
The trendiest color this year and especially this season is… Emerald! If you are looking for what to wear as clothing or makeup for your next party, choose this color and you will be the star everywhere you go! The Glitter Strobe Eyeliner Set” is perfect for those who like to wear the emerald trend subtly, because you can wear a natural or neutral eye shadow (beige, ivory, soft brown or soft pink for example), and add a touch of color with a thin emerald eyeliner. The result is amazing!

Copper Eye shadow:
This spring try out shades of copper for that frosted metallic finish from Make Up For Ever #12 — creamy, rich copper with a metallic finish, NARS Isolde — two shades of coppery browns, MAC Amber Lights — rich, metallic copper with a strong golden-copper shimmer, Giorgio Armani #5 — darkened coppery brown with a metallic finish, Inglot #405 — metallic copper

Charcoal Nail paint:
Add glamour to your finger tips with a touch of charcoal nail paint. Go for NYX Girls – abyss, Savina – charcoal sparkle. Look for a charcoal with a hint of silvery gray shimmer, like OPI Nail Lacquer polish in Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees, dark gunmetal shade that manicurists brush on nails. Keep the fun rolling.

Plum Blusher:
Au Naturale’s blusher is a mulberry pigment with rose undertones, and a touch of sheen. Apply it on your cheekbones for that flushed, breezy look. Choose one that glides on smoothly and blends easily for seamless color and a natural, radiant finish.

Sky Blue Eye shadow plus liner:
Vibrant blue shades are a beauty trend that has staying power simply because it can be striking on the right woman. Experts say the right shade of blue can make blue eyes pop, while lilac and purples are gorgeous on brown eyes and black and olive-skinned women. Try a deeper-hued shade of blue eye liner. Navy or indigo works great. If you’re opting for blue eye shadow, keep the rest of your makeup light.

Electric Purple Lipstick:
Want to look girly, whimsical and a little intimidating, then pair MACs Lipmix in Burgundy with MACs Pigment in Violet and be electric. This color cannot be worn at all times and certainly not to the office.

Platinum Eye shadow:
Excellent for fair skin tone proving an alternative to gold and silver eye shadows. Platinum has taken the smoky eye to the next level, making the eye look bigger without the extreme drama of charcoal. You can also try pairing warm glimmering platinum (Elizabeth Arden Eye Pencil in Platinum Glow) with smudgy black liner for a streamlined futuristic look. Or, create the illusion of wide-open doll eyes by applying just along the inner rim of your bottom lashes.

Opaque White nail polish:
Want to play with the shade this season? Since white nails make a statement, this is a great option to downplay the color’s boldness. You can try Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Spirit, an opaque, bright white.

Hot pink lipstick:
For those with fairer skin try an icy pink, and for fiery redheads there’s no need to be wary of clashing colors as an apricot or coral based pink is the perfect shade for you. Dab a touch of your regular foundation or nude lip liner before you apply your first coat of color and then blot with a tissue before applying a second layer. This technique absorbs any moisture in the lipstick, making the color brighter and ensuring your pout is party-ready even when the night is over.
