Each year I look forward to the Spring and Summer beauty trend show at Nordstrom. This year the event was held the past weekend. It started with light refreshments, such as coffee and pastries. The event was followed by fashion models on the runway with clothes for Spring, and beauty directors introducing the new and popular beauty products for the Spring and Summer. It was exciting to see the products from various lines, such as Chanel, Dior, Kate Sommerville, Guerlain, and Yves Saint Laurent.
Below are the highlights of the essential beauty trends for this Spring and Summer.
Healthy and Flawless Skin
Flawless skin is the key trend of the season. There was a lot of emphasis on skin products that clean and pamper the face to maintain a healthy appearance. By applying a foundation to healthy skin, your face will look beautiful and glowing.
Among the many skin products recommended during the show, I have some favorites – Dior’s “One Essential” Skin Boosting Super Serum, Kate Somerville’s “DermalQuench Liquid Lift” Advanced Wrinkle Treatment, and YSL’s “Touche Eclat” Foundation.
Blue and Green for Eye
Both blue and green are popular shades for Spring and Summer. Any shades of blue and green will make your eye color stand out. Before you layer on any eye shadow, it is important to prep your eye area with YSL’s Touche Eclat Radiant Touch to brighten up the area around the eye, or Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Kit to cover any dark circles.
Coral and Pink for Cheeks and Lips
I am glad to see that the coral color has come back for this season. Two years ago both Dior and Chanel had great lip gloss in coral, but they were limited-edition for Spring. I am glad I finally found good replacements from Dior and YSL for this season.
Defined Brows and Eyelashes
Strongly defined brows are the key for this Spring’s look. Anastasia Beverly Hills offers great products to help maintain your brows and enhance your eyes (such as Beauty Express for Brows & Eyes). Once you apply the new beauty trends products, you must complete the look with mascara to add dimension to eyes. Both Guerlain’s Cils d’Enfer Maxi Lash Mascara and YSL’s Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara are my favorites.
