Spring 2013 Trend: The Vintage Lip

i love spring makeup trends. something about the promise of sunny days ahead warms my soul. after attending Spring/Summer 2013 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week i have been chomping at the bit to start putting some of those fashions into effect.

last week i received my Nordstrom spring catalog and this pastel vintage lip was rampant among the catalog models. i loved it. spring trends typically focus around pastels and spring 2013 makeup trends are no exception.

the above before and after pictures are showing the exact same lipgloss, however the second photo has the white base coat.

to recreate this popular spring 2013 makeup trend, follow the steps below:

  • using my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil, i applied a white base coat.
  • following that i topped it with my rose pink lipgloss.

    1. definitely a great lipgloss color, but sometimes a little variety is fun :)

  2. I had never really thought of using a white to lighten a shade. That's a great idea! I just learned the trick to put foundation on lips to lipstick true to color.

    1. the found over your lips for truer lipstick color is also a great technique. thanks for the reminder Arielle! xo

  3. I like the first one also..

  4. Great idea to lighten dark lip glosses :)
