Spring is a perfect time to experiment with new beauty ideas. New season, new look, new you! This Spring we see some keys trends that are very wearable and easy to achieve. We polled our Botkier Babes here at the office to see what their favorite looks were and paired it with Monica’s photography to illustrate them. Which one will you be sporting?
Rosebud lips, so romantic! The soft rose color blends in beautifully on all skin tones, especially when paired with a similarly toned blush, as makeup artists were fond of doing at the shows. Go for a creamy lipstick, then pat it in with the fingers or blot with a tissue for a delicate stain. Photo of Manon von Gerkan by Monica Botkier.
Power Brows are the new shoulder pads of today! Feminine and striking, the look of bold brows dominated the runways, recalling sixties-era icons like Liz Taylor. The best examples are darkened with pigment, brushed up, and shaped with a dramatic, strong arch. Photo of Joy Bryant by Monica Botkier.
Doll Lashes. Whether curled or feathery, don’t be afraid to experiment. Long, dark and precise – more is more! Photo of Janelle by Monica Botkier.
Modern Cat Eyes. The familiar flick of liner returned to the outer corners of eyes but this time fashioned with inventive, even playful variations. Combine with a brilliant burst of bright color for a look all your own. Wow and we thought handbags were all about brights this season… Photo of Rachel Roberts by Monica Botkier.
Sporty Cheeks. Athleticism inspired the dewy, sun-splashed cheeks seen backstage. Makeup artists mimicked the effects of the being out in the sun by contouring the high parts of the face with lush peach bronze. Skin even seemed sunburned at some shows — but in this case, the illusion proved to be prettier than the real thing. Photo of Tereza by Monica Botkier.
