Spring/Summer 2007 Makeup Trends

Makeup from the Spring/Summer 2007 runways range from sweet pinks to captivating metallics. What’s good about these makeup trends is that they’re not only hot on the ramp – they’re also wearable. Get glam with these fresh new looks.


Smoky Eyes

Smoky eyes (as long as they’re paired with soft cheeks and nude/neutral lips) are still hot this season for night makeup. The new smoky eye, however, is not limited to black. Experiment with blue green, bronze, violet or navy blue for your next night out.


Nudes

From the heavy smoky eyes, we shift to the new nudes. It’s all about highlighting cheek and brow bones here, as well as adding light shimmer on the lips.

Metallics

Don’t go too heavy on the metal. The right amount of metallic eye shadow, eyeliner and even mascara would look gorgeous on any skin tone. Golden hues are good for warmer skin tones, while fair ladies would look sublime in silver.


Shades of Pink

Deeper pinks are beautiful on morena skin, while lighter shades are more flattering on fairer skin.


Keeping the Balance

If you want to dress up your eyes, keep makeup on your lips and cheeks nude, neutral or just a little bit rosy. Remember to keep your look balanced.


For lips, you can still wear lipstick as long as it’s nude or a neutral or light shade. Finish it off with some gloss for a little bit of moisture.


Eyelashes

Don’t forget to curl your eyelashes and apply two coats of mascara to open up your eyes. If you don’t want them too heavy, you can still give them volume by curling them and applying clear mascara.


I highly recommend the Shu Uemura eyelash curler and the inexpensive but effective Bench clear mascara.



Don’t be afraid to experiment (at home!) and find makeup looks that suit you. Have fun!
