[Fashion] Beauty Buzz

I don't typically write about beauty stuff in my Fashion Fridays, but I've decided to switch things up a bit this week and see how it goes! I've got a case of the winter blues {go away dreary weather!}, so I'm quite looking forward to the colorful and fun hair & makeup trends for Spring!

Fashion Friday: Beauty Buzz

Peach Lips
Peach lips are so so pretty this season. This soft shade is great for daytime but can easily be dressed up for evening with rich black eyeliner {even push it further with a fun bold blue}. The glossier the better, this flattering color can come across delicate or even more vibrant if you choose.

Taupe Nails
According to WhoWhatWear, taupe nails are all the craze. Simple, earthy and intriguing. I absolutely adore this color and believe this is the best way for people with my skin tone to wear it. Since my fair skin can't pull off taupe clothing, so I am all about this trend! I think I just might be purchasing this today!

Goddess Hair
It's going to take me awhile to achieve this - as my hair is short and crazy right now - but boy, am I looking forward to it! Sexy, tousled hair is all the rage. Tease out those curls, invite bedhead in... it's all about just-off-the-beach loose and natural curls this season. Like they say... easy, breezy, beautiful.

Bold Eyeliner
Line your top lid and keep the rest of your look fairly simple. This is perfect for a night out or even a Valentine's Day date. My personal favorite is a deep navy blue or green color extended out the corners of your lids, à la Audrey Hepburn.

Red Hot Lips
The red lipstick trend is still totally in... if you haven't yet jumped on it, now is the time! One of my favorite bloggers {Bleubird Vintage} made it a resolution to try out red lipstick this year - how adorable is she {below}?
