Fresh Faced for Spring

While the current weather is keeping my ballet flats in their shoe boxes and my light blouses tucked away in my closet, it's never too soon to start experimenting with spring hair and makeup trends.  While watching the Spring/Summer 2012 collections last September, I made notes of some of my favorite trends to try out.  They are listed below, along with some of the products and tools that will be needed to make them possible.  

Romantically Pink at Ralph Lauren
Soft pink blush, sheer golden lip gloss, and lots of black mascara set off this amazingly simple and wonderfully spring look.  The sleek hair finishes off this angelic trend and I'm dying to try it.  
Chanel Poudre Tissee in Brompton Road, DiorShow Iconic in Black, Mac Lustreglass in Instant Gold

Fluffed Up-Do's at Diane Von Furstenberg
Completely in love with the voluminous up-do's that all of DVF's models sported on the runway.  Combined with barely there makeup, the look is completely fresh and oh so elegant.  
Pantene Pro V Voluminous Hairspray, Conair Pro Styling Comb, Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray

Mod Hair & Girly Makeup at Erin Fetherston

Messy ponytails, thick eyeliner, and pink stained lips give off a sexy and youthful vibe.    Paired with sweet attire (like polka dots and bows) the look is retro and fun.
Estee Lauder Doublewear Eye Pencil in Onyx,  Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me, Goody Ouchless hairties.

Dramatic Falsies at Zac Posen
I love nothing more than a good fake eyelash - and I'm loving the varied lengths of these particular  lashes.  With just a simple eye shadow and not much else, this look could even be day appropriate.
Rimmel Glam'Eyes Macara, Urban Decay Naked Palette, Revlon Runway False Eyelashes 

Natural Beauties at Calvin Klein
The "no-makeup" makeup look is a trend that will never go away.  The keys to this look are glowing skin, a slightly glossed lip, and flowingly care-free locks.
