Can't wait to wear the beautiful makeup trends seen on the Spring 2013 runways? We've rounded up ten of the most gorgeous looks that you can work into your winter look now. From sexy glossy lips at Issa to subtle orange cheeks at Dolce & Gabbana, get a jump on some of the hottest and most happening beauty trends today.
Carlos Miele's Matte Red Lips
Unlike in previous seasons, this spring's red mouth is more sophisticated and mature thanks to a muted palette and a matte finish. For inspiration, channel Carlos Miele's sultry siren who keeps the focus on her glam mouth by keeping the rest of her face au naturale. Get the look with Yves Saint Laurent's ROUGE PUR COUTURE MATTE ($32) in Rouge Rock, a creamy, rich matte red hue that stays put for over eight hours without cracking or bleeding.
Chris Benz's Plum Shadow
More fresh and exciting than the typical spring pastel, plum shades are sultry, sophisticated and even a bit edgy. At Chris Benz, models displayed plum lids that highlighted the whole eye area and also helped sculpt the cheekbone. For similar results, try Stila's Eye Shadow ($18) in Poise, a shimmery eggplant purple hue that is meant to favor all skin tones.
J. Mendel's Dewy Skin
Rather than a trend, make dewy skin an everyday situation by channeling J. Mendel's luminous goddess. Wearable for every occasion, including at work, dewy complexions give off a healthy just-got-back-from-vacation vibe. To get this glow, skip the heavy foundation and instead opt for a lightweight tinted moisturizer like Laura Mercier's Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer $43 in Radiance.
Balmain's Messy 'Do
If going by Balmain's SS 2013 messy hair, perfect is about to take a backseat this upcoming season. Strategically undone hair is more casual, and at times a whole lot sexier, than more severe or strict styles. To keep your messy bun or braid in a lasting hold, make sure to spray on a bit of hair mist before styling. Our pick: Josie Maran Bohemia Argan Hair Mist $22.
Louis Vuitton's Monochrome Visage
For chic and forward beauty, channel Louis Vuitton's monochrome face which gives exclusivity to a gorgeous bronze shade. Used on the lips, eyes, cheeks and even hinted on the headband color, bronze was the color of choice for one of fashion's best. To get this modern and sophisticated trend, look for an all-in-one multi-purpose stick like NARS The Multiple in Orgasm ($39), a peachy pink shimmer stick that builds upon application without ever looking overdone.
Alberta Ferretti's Golden Eye
Alberta Ferretti's SS 2013 collection might have brought the ocean onto the catwalk with all sorts of blues and greens, but beauty belonged exclusively to gold. Models sported striking gilded lids from lashline to brow bone. To get this golden look, use a cream based metallic eye shadow that can be applied either sheer or intensely. We recommend Bobbi Brown's Metallic Longwear Cream-shadow ($24), in Goldstone, a creamy rich formula that is infused with a hint of sparkle.
Dolce & Gabbana's Subtle Orange Shimmer
While Dolce & Gabbana's Sicilian-inspired spring collection was filled with accessories, details, and flashy accents, its beauty was more on the minimal side. Aside from lined eyes, only a bit of orange shimmer graced the beautiful Mediterranean women. Both on the lips and cheeks, a faint hint of orange felt refreshing and spring-ready. For a similar look, try Stila Lip & Cheek Stain ($24) in Mango Crush, a sheer coral hue you can apply without hesitation all over your face.
Blugirl's Fairy Hair
Channel your inner fairy or hippie-chick this spring by putting some flowers in your hair. A bit lost on how to go about this whimsical trend? Scope out Bluegirl's SS 13 collection, which featured enamel wreaths on the models' hair. For a similar look, shop Cult Gaia's Electric Blue Crown $75, a gorgeous blue floral wreath that has already been spotted on the likes of Leighton Meester and Lana del Rey. It will look great when paired with a winter white ensemble.
Giles' Bright Pink Pout
Nothing says spring like a bright pink pout. Not only will an electric color like the one seen at Giles look fresh and modern, particularly in the middle of winter, it will also brighten your smile. This neon-like hue works on almost all skin tones, and can be worked either sheer or intensely. Copy this look by swiping on Lancome Color Design ($32) in Poodle Skirt, a gorgeous pink lipstick that is both bright and a bit shimmery.
Issa's Glossy Lips
Give your evening a gorgeous upgrade by infusing sexy glossified lips like the ones seen at Issa's Spring 2013 collection. Sexy and feminine, glossy lips are definite spotlight stealers, and should be reserved for special occasions. To get Issa's electric pout, make sure to opt for a high-shine long-lasting lip gloss like Dolce & Gabbana's ($29) in Charm, an intense fuchsia pink gloss with multi-color shimmer.
