spring makeup inspiration

Now that the weather is getting warmer (actually no that's a lie, the weather has been crazy sporadic - rain, wind, cold, and heat all in one week...haha, that rhymed....anyway...), and spring is just around the corner, I've been constantly looking at spring makeup. Seeing photos from the spring 2012 runway shows and observing the makeup has really inspired me and has gotten me really eager for the weather to get warmer so I can sport some of these looks.

I've compiled a bunch of my favorite photos and makeup looks from various spring fashion shows. The two looks that I really really reeeeeeeally like are the 'fresh faced' look and the coral/orange lip. I'm currently obsessing over coral/orange lips and have the urge to go out and buy some more lipsticks.. (even though I'm running low on $$$.... agghhhh).
The "fresh faced" look is one that I generally love. I enjoy minimal/light makeup all year round, but it's especially pretty in the spring. The first three pictures are from the Dolce and Gabbana spring 2012 runway and I was immediately drawn to the pinks/golds in the makeup. The fourth photo is from Oscar de la Renta show. The minimal makeup look is always in style, in my opinion. With the nudes and light, natural pink flush, I think it's absolutely gorgeous!! The last photo is from the Chanel runway and again, just a very pretty, natural look. (The pearl accents in Karlie's hair are so cool!!) 

Onto the fun makeup!! Gahhhh, the pop of color is just ah-mazing. The first photo is from tumblr and the rest are from the Jason Wu spring 2012 runway. I'm normally not attracted to this bright and bold of a lip, but for some reason I'm just in love with this look!! I love the contrast that it has against any outfit. Now, if only I had the confidence to rock a bold lip like this...I would, but this spring I'll be rocking a less bright orange and more of the peachy/coral lip. 

........all this makeup inspiration makes me want to go out and buy some lipsticks... however, I'm constantly reminded by the dwindling amount of cash that I I must refrain myself from going too crazy..-waits for buy one get one sales at the drugstore- It's funny 'cause I'm not much of a lip makeup person, yet I like buying a lot of lipsticks and have a ever growing wishlist of lipsticks that I lust over.....hmm.../girlproblems

  13. I love the fresh faced look, looks far more natural it makes me cringe so much when you can tell people have pilled on the make up. I totally agree with you about lipsticks everytime i see a bold colour, i lust after it for ages then when i get the money together its gone! :-(
