As we are finally transitioning into spring season, it’s time to look at what lies ahead for Summer 2013 makeup collections. Surprise surprise! Radiant, bronzed skin is in at Giorgio Armani, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Laura Mercier and Clarins. The most surprising collection — or I really should say shocking — is Chanel. This atypical Chanel collection brings vibrant colours inspired by butterfly wings, including four brightly coloured mascaras (blue, aqua, lime and yellow). My favourite visuals and collections — I can’t choose just one! — are from Dior and YSL. The beauty blogger world is all abuzz about the Dior Nude Tan Paradise Blush and Bronzer Duos. I’ve only started to discover the items from YSL’s Marrakesh-inspired collection, but I fall in love with each new product as I apply it for the first time. The coral glossy stain I used here is a must-see! NARS and Revlon will make colour junkies very happy with all the punchy colours their little hearts desire.
What new collection and/or product release are you most excited about for this summer? I’d love to hear it and maybe, build the wishlist!
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).
