2013 Makeup Fashion Trends and Classic Colors

Every year there are new and different makeup fashion trends. There are also those classic colors that are timeless in the fashion world. While I like to stay up on the new fashion trends don’t always follow them, unless of course I like them. I like to do my own thing and wear what I like. It just so happens that two of the main fashion color trends for 2013 are my favorite colors; emerald green and purple. These fashion colors apply to clothing, hair, makeup…anything.

2013 Makeup Color Trends

As I was scoping out the the make up and color selection of Blast Make Up, I totally fell for their varying shades of purple. I recently had purple highlights put in my hair, so obviously I’ve been on a purple kick, lately. I ended up choosing their Sensation shade of eye shadow along with their Plum eyeliner and Portal lip gloss:

Eye Shadow and Liner

The light shimmer of the sensation eye shadow is perfect, it is exactly what I was going for. It blends easily and works well for an all over lid color. I like to use this color and add a darker purple in the crease of my eyelid. It’s also a nice shade to use for highlighting the brow bone.

Lip Color

The Blast Lip Gloss is my absolute favorite. While it is a little more sheer and not as bold as I was hoping for it is very moisturizing and not sticky at all.  It adds a nice tint to the lips.

Classic Makeup Colors

Just as red lips will forever be a classic look, so will shades of tawny. I’ve never had a lot of luck with blushes, they’re either too dark or too pink or just too not right for me. When I saw the Tawny Peach blush by Blast, I knew it was one that I wanted to try. See, I have dark hair, but pretty light/fair skin, especially in the winter, so I kind of get that vampire look going on at times without trying to. Tawny, Peach, Apricot and Coral colors are all classic colors for the fair skin toned. The Tawny Peach blush paired with the Apricot Toast lipstick make for a great combo and timeless look.

This blush works really well for me and my coloring. For the first time ever I’ve found a blush that I am happy with.
