Color in Bloom

For spring 2012, it’s all about color! Especially bright colors and neons. Today, we’ll visit some of the hottest color trends of the season.

Take a look at JCrew’s Spring collection. The focus is definitely on bright, eye-catching colors inspired by all things in bloom for spring. Color blocking is a huge trend, which is pairing solid bright colored pieces with other solid bright pieces of different colors, like in each picture below. Notice the colored skinny jeans, which are a must have this spring!

Next, let’s look at makeup trends in color. On the runway, the biggest trend we saw was bright fuchsia or tangerine lips paired with a neutral eye with dramatic doll lashes and a peach flush on the cheeks.

Want to try this look? On the lips, use Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti for the look on the left, or Lollipop for the look on the right. Then sweep the Covergirl Eye Enhancers trio in Shimmering Sands across your lids. Top off the eyes with Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara for those dramatic doll lashes, then use Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Blissful on the apples of your cheeks for a warm glow. Leave your skin dewey, no powdering down. Matte is out, natural is in!

Another hot trend for spring and summer is neon nail polish! It will look great against tan skin and is perfect for the color blocking trend because you can paint your nails a bright color and not need to worry about matching it to the rest of your outfit.

What is your favorite color trend for spring? Will you try color blocking or are you just going to stick with one bright color at a time?
