Spring is the best time to whip out those bright colors that were kept hidden in the drawers after the long cold winter and turquoise is my all-time favorite. While turquoise looks best against darker skin tones and makes brown eyes pop, it will look good on lighter eyes and paler skin as well. Just make sure you pick one that has a metallic or satiny finish. Matte turquoise can look dated.
For Gen Art’s Fresh Faces in Fashion at Fashion Focus Chicago 2008, Lancôme’s national makeup artist Alex Sanchez created a street chic look for the young and hip models.
Granite colors were smudged around the eyes to create a city vibe, brows filled in with pencil for a strong look, mascara and false lashes applied for thick lashes and lips painted in nude colors.

The Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week has officially ended last Friday and below are some of the trends spotted on the runway.
Trend 1: Nude Look
Yes the nude look is big again at the Spring 2009 shows. Models at the Marc by Marc Jacobs and MaxAzria shows were spotted with natural-looking skin, minimal eye makeup and barely there lips.
Fresh off the Fall 2008 Couture fashion shows, we are seeing graphic eyeliner everywhere – thick and winged out, on the crease and even under the eye. The look is young, bold and totally now so if you have not mastered the art of lining, you better dig out your eyeliner and start practicing pronto!
Jean Paul Gaultier
This reminds me of a look I did that was inspired by an Accessorize ad with super model Lily Cole. The trick is start out by drawing a line on your crease with a pencil before going over it with a black liquid liner. Keep the rest of your eye bare with just a thin line along your upper lash line and tons of mascara on top and bottom.
