10 Most Talked About Beauty Trends for Spring 2012

Sharing is caring!

Looking for the most sought after beauty trends to wear this  spring? Like last year (actually every year), I narrowed down my huge list of beauty looks seen at New York Fashion Week to just 10 because I believe these are the most standout looks for spring. Get to know the hottest lip trends, eye colors, hair trends (bouncy blowout hair, fun braids, etc) and more for the spring 2012 season!

wet like hair spring 2012

The wet-hair look was seen down several runways like Victoria Beckham and is one of the most low-maintenance looks to wear for spring. This look could be worn free flowing, tousled, or slightly damped at the roots.

all about the brows

Fall’s bold brows trend rolls over into spring. It was all about brows at shows like Derek Lam. “I always love a strong architectural brow, ” said Makeup Artist Tom Pecheux.

metallic sheen

Metallic Sheen definitely caught my attention at shows such as Doo.Ri and 3.1 Phillip Lim. Shows like Fendi made the foil look fashionable.

colorful streaks

Colorful hair strands were spotted down several runway shows like Acne, Peter Som, and Thakoon. It’s one of the most bold yet rebellious spring 2012 hair trends.

spring 2012 statement lips

Wanna make a statement this spring? Make your lips do all the talking in electric shades such as bright red lips, punchy pinks, or go even bolder with blues and violets (Check out the looks backstage at Richard Chai).

just peachy

Tangerine is Pantone’s Color of the year so it’s no surprise to see peach and orange tones being a major hit down the spring runways and one of the most popular spring 2012 makeup trends.

tucked ponytail

The effortless ponytail is back once again in all shapes and heights. One style in particularly is the tucked ponytail look which is a fresh take on the classic chignon.

warm cheeks

For spring, cheeks were hit with warmer tones for a “sunburnt look” at shows like DKNY. The beach season is only a few months away so adding some bronze is the perfect way to warm up.

sophisticated plaited braids

Big oversized braids seen at Valentino adds a bits a elegance and sophistication to your spring look.

nude nails

Nude nails is the “it” color for spring. Though I love to see funky-cool nail trends down the runways, I was more excited to see something different for a change.

What beauty trend are you looking forward to wearing this spring?

  1. Wow! I am so excited about the spring beauty trends this year, they really let me off the hook…from the wet look for hair(I call it 4 day old greasy hair), to plastered bright eyeshadow (my kids can apply it for me & it would look better than these pics)…I can also quit being concerned about plucking my eyebrows (I can grow some thick ones). Most exciting of all, nude nails are the “it” color of the season…woo hoo…that’s great since I don’t usually paint my fingernails. When I think about all of these trends…this is honestly how I look just about everyday (maybe I helped start the trend), since I am mostly at home with the kids, and fixing myself up – well, it just doesn’t happen much during the week. I am not going to feel guilty about this unkempt look anymore (at least for spring), because “they” say I look like a current runway model…I just have to convince my husband of this! Hmm…maybe I can quit shaving my legs too 😉
