Spring Trend 2011--Red-Orange White and Gold

06 April 2011
Good morning chicklets,

So much is going on in my little world that today I will bring you two posts. I have to postpone the Makeup Basics for black women with olive undertones for tomorrow because I finally received the pics from my latest photo shoot and I think you will LOVE THEM... So those will go up later. For now I am bring you another spring trend.. COLOR!!.. Yes we are saying goodbye to the heavy colors and saying hello to vibrant happy colors and metallics.. Today's trend report is all about RED!! Now, I am a bit biased about this color because it is my favorite color in the whole world. Red just rocks! So without further ado, I present to you red featuring gold and white. :D

White jeans are alla moda this spring so if you do not have a pair you might want to invest in one. I love white jeans they are very springy to me and they can be dressy or casual. And no white does not make you look bigger if you wear it correctly or choose the correct silhouette. And Bell bottom boot cut looks good on everyone. And of course a spring/summer staple--espadrilles. Every girl should have a pair, the blue nail polish is a must have spring AND bonus it is the complementary color of orange (red/orange):

3. Bianca Espadrille, Nine West
4. Barbados Blue Nail Lacquer, Essie
5. Animal Clutch, Ninewest

Makeup Board for fair to medium skin-- Smokey Eyes and Coral lips


Makeup Board for med-dark to deep dark skin, Smokey Eyes and Coral Lips


I decided to go with coral lips because the coral complements the red shirt. It does not overshadow it. I did not want to use a red lip because it would have been too much red and a nude lip would have been a disservice to the red, so I settled on a color that is vibrant on its own but that is willing to take a back seat when paired with a equally vibrant color. Again, I hope today's trend boards have inspired you. A dopo!
