Top 3 Favorite 2012 Makeup Trends

S.O. Healthy — January 12, 2012

1.  Bold or Barely There:  One thing is for sure, a flawless healthy canvas is a must for 2012 makeup.  But does that really ever go out of style? Only the most opalene skin is deserving of the iconic red lip trend this season.  The same holds true for sporting the under-made-up look also favored on NYFW Spring/Summer ’12 runways.  Achieving a naturally healthy look starts with reaching for the sunscreen.


2.  Modernized Revival Eyeliner:  Whether in tribute to Amy Winhouse or Audrey Hepburn, winged eyeliner is back and it’s big! But only the most perfect winged jobs will do. Paired with another hot Spring/Summer trend, metallic shadow, winged eyeliner definitely makes our list.

The Dior stick on Velvet Eyes variety …  not so much.

3.  Chemical Free Cosmetics and Personal Care Products:  We saved the best for last. In keeping with our safe skincare sensibilities it is exciting to see that makeup is getting its rightful makeover. The market shift toward safer, naturally-based, eco-friendly and organic cosmetics free of hormone disrupting chemicals is very encouraging.  Consumers should be applauded for shopping savvy and weighing health risks with every purchase.  Given the research that women are exposed to 515 chemicals each day as depicted below, this is one trend we’re hopeful will stick around.
