I admit that spring is personally my least favourite makeup season. Typically there is a deluge of pastels, which isn’t the most flattering for anyone with darker than medium skin. However, looking at the Spring 2013 visuals, there is something to be excited about. There are your typical collections (Dior, Laura Mercier) where everything is pink, but you can’t deny that these looks are so pretty! I’m glad to see bright watermelon pinks from Chanel and Lancôme, not to mention that insane bright turquoise eyeliner on Emma Watson. We’re seeing a lot of greens and blues in eyeshadows as well (Bare Minerals, Giorgio Armani, YSL). Clarins‘ vampy wintery look is so surprising and looks totally out of place in this visual board. shu uemura is — as expected — bringing all colours under the rainbow and feather-everything (!!!). The most interesting collection to me is NARS. Anticipated by many to think outside the (colour) box, NARS is featuring saturated matte powders, including a glorious bright orange eyeshadow and deep berry blush (swatches on Makeup and Beauty Blog).
