Spring/Summer 2012 Makeup (Part 1)

As spring is on its way, I think it is my duty as a beauty blogger, to share with you some of the Spring/Summer 2012 makeup trends.
I'll divide this topic into three or four posts for this week, so stay tuned. Each post will feature one single trend, this way giving me more time and space to discuss it properly. I hope you won't get bored :)

And without further ado, let us move on to number one beauty trend and the most talked about lately: Pastels.
Firstly, I'd like to show you this editorial from Flair (Austria) magazine, which in my opinion is the best representation of what Pastel makeup should ideally look like.

Of course it is not everyone's cup of tea and in the magazines the makeup is quite exaggerated to give a better understanding of the trend and in order for it to be more vital.

 My advice to you is don't copy the makeup exactly how it is on the paper, just be inspired by it to create your own, with a little twist. 

I don't know how about you, but I think the first look from the editorial seems most realistically wearable for every day. A beautiful porcelain base, two coats of mascara, a barbie pink blush and a glossy pink lip that' s all you need.

I've selected a few products, both high-end and drugstore, which might encourage you to embrace the pastel trend this spring/summer. Let's look into them:

Dior's Spring Garden Party 2012 collection 
Revlon Matte lipstick in Smoked Peach
Revlon lipgloss in Lilac Pastelle
Revlon nail polish in Sunshine Sparkle

I hope these gorgeous spring colours brightened up your day,
