First up is all about the eyes. To keep up with the latest eye make up trend, you need to make sure your make up bag includes some blue and green shades, from teal to turquoise. You can see these looks all over the catwalk including Dior and Michael Kors and if worn correctly can look amazing. One of my personal favourites is a green smoky eye. Now sometimes green can be a hard colour to work with on the eyes, but emerald is a shade that works with most skin types. I think using a darker matte green with a lighter emerald will be a great take on the classic grey or brown smoky eye and will look so fresh and cool for spring. If you're using a bold or bright colour on the eyes, make sure you don't over do it and use neutral and nude colours on the cheeks and lips.
My favourite hair style that is going to be big in spring is the side sweep. This vintage inspired style has been taking the red carpet by storm and has been everywhere at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards. It's a seemingly effortless and timeless look that is so chic and suits any type of look, whether its a casual day out with your girlfriends shopping, or a night out with your man. Hair stylists say the trick is to make the look seem natural and glamorous, but not grungy! Parting your hair to the side with tousled curls is a look I just love!
Another look I already love and use a lot is cat eyes with nude lips. I've been such a huge fan of cat eyes for so long; it's a look that suits nearly everyone and can be so easy to do (although it can be a pain trying to even them out!). Adele is famous for sporting this classic look, and pulls it off so well! I'll definitely be continuing wearing eyeliner in this way, whether it's a trend or not!

Finally, it seems bright nails are taking the spotlight on the hand front, along with dark shades, nude shades and an appearance from metallics. I think wearing good nail varnish is so important as it can change your whole appearance! However, I do have to admit I am a chipped nail varnish culprit some days :( My favourite colours for this spring are coral, teal, lilac and mint green. Barry M have recently released a new nail varnish called the Hi Shine Gel Effect Nail Polish and it is available in so many different shades, definitely a must have for next season! I already have the shade Green Berry and am planning on posting a review of it soon :)
So there's my favourite beauty trends for Spring 2013, I can't wait to start wearing them as soon as possible! What do you guys think about them?
