I’m obsessed with Fashion, and I love seeing what trends are going to be popular for the upcoming season in beauty and style. The runways of Fashion Week are such a great indication of the Spring Trends. As much as I love a good theatrical runway show, some of the looks that walk the catwalk are not practical for everyday life. So I thought I would take a dramatic runway look and make it wearable for the Everyday Starlet. I started with the trend of a glossy eyeshadow on the lid combined with a vampy lip.
A dark lip color is usually seen more in Fall and Winter, but this year it’s carried over to Spring. I used a more subdued plum shade, my MAC Plumful to be exact, to make the vampy lip wearable for daytime.
Glossy lids have been a trend since the days of Old Hollywood Starlets. It’s usually strictly an evening look, but I used a honey tinted lip balm to give it a natural glow. You’ll be hard pressed to find a glossy lid look that won’t gather in the crease, but I was surprised how much my Pixi lip balm held up. If you really can’t hand the glossy lid feeling or creasing, you can use a shimmery cream shadow, like my favorite Maybelline Color Tattoo, for an even more wearable look.
Here’s the look in action…
