Spring Beauty Trends on the Horizon

Posted: January 30, 2013

The approach of spring always brings with it new trends in beauty, and beauty brand ‘Tini Beauty has a look at what to expect for nails, lips and eyes in the coming months.

Accessorize All the Way to the Fingertips

From the red carpet to the runway, nails are the finishing touch for any look. Nailtini celebrity manicurist Elsbeth forecasts the hottest nail trends for this year will include:

  • Mixed Textures: Contrasts, like shiny with matte, glitter with cream, and appliqués on tips/moons, will come on strong.
  • Multiple Accent Nails: Accents and statements will show up on two or three nails at a time rather than just one.
  • Nail Art: Designs are here to stay, evolving this season into film reel or comic strip nails where each nail shows a different scene or step in a story.
  • Colors: Shades will be colorful but more muted and soft-toned rather than hot, bright or neon.

Cream Tops the List for Lips

On the lip front, 'Tini Beauty founder Michelle Toma Olson says, "Lipsticks are still hot for spring, but shimmer will take a back seat to creamier, more velvety textures." And another retro trend making a return? Using the same lipstick on the cheeks and lips.

Garden Colors Inspire Eyes

It's all about the garden when it comes to eyes this season, according to Toma Olson. "This is where shimmer will shine, in garden-inspired hues that give eyes a fresh, bright look,” she says.
