Barbara Mordini Make Up Studio Mount Lawley
The standout trend for this SS13 is bare beautiful skin either velvety matte or slightly dewy. Full eyebrows are still a must have look either pencilled or just simply combed. Blush is either sculpted with bronzer under the cheek bones or a natural kiss of soft colour in either pink or peach on the apple of the cheeks. These were the 3 key trends used in all of the top Designer runway shows
Colour on the face is also a big player this season either used on the eyes – think neon blue, green and pink as used in shows like Donna Karan, Channel and Versus, or on the lips either stained or matte in beautiful shades of barely there nude, bright pink, orange and red as seen in Versace, Missoni and Prada . Remember to play one or the other and keep everything else to a bare minimum.
Big bold false lashes were also seen in shows such as Gucci and Giorgio Armani and grunge eyeliner with emphasis smudged through the lower lash line featured in Phillip Lim and Lanvin.
