Bold bright colors, smoky eyes, and red lips are the trends for spring.

Bold bright spring hues have forge their way into our  cosmetic bags. Much anticipated palettes and single shadows bear witness that bold and bright colors have followed the previews of Fashion Week. Colors ranging from bright flamingo pinks, pineapple yellows, kelly and kiwi greens, and shockingly dazzling electric blues and other assorted bright pigments that are eye catching, in nature, have rage ashore from the fashion and cosmetics industry lead from fashion houses of Milan, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami and everything around and between - from shore to shore.

Although bright colors seem dominant, don't go filling your cosmetic bags with just bright hues only.  You will find that the reign of the smoky eye has not been dethroned. The blacks, grays, and whites are classic smoky eye colors yet the smoky eye has evolved to neutrals and even carries a nontraditional theme of an explosions of colors that have brought a new wind that has transformed our minds as to how we view the smoky eye. Trends of purple, lilacs, sea glass blues and greens, vibrant reds have certainly elevated the traditional smoky eye look that takes on new dimensions.

Red lips...done right

Yielding great reviews  and compliments are always welcomed yet with red lips it is essential that they are done right.   Red lips have to be done with proper care and precision.
