Fresh Spring Beauty: Floral Inspired




     Even though we still have a couple months left of winter, the Spring 2013 Paris Couture fashion shows have gotten us in the mood for some bright updates!  We’re channeling the warmer months with the petal inspired colors seen on the runway.  At Marni and Chanel it was all about a light petal pink pout.  While the models strutted in lip shades of bright poppy orange and deep rose at Rochas and Prada.  

    In an interview with makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi said, “I love a cheerful, unexpected [pop] of color in the winter.”  She also recommends wearing the lighter pink shades with a smoky eye for evening to balance the look.  And if you’re going bold with the bright poppy and siren shades she suggests keeping the color matte for a more modern look.
