Bobbi Brown Spring 2012: Neons & Nudes

Nudes & Neons

With the ongoing neon trend, Bobbi Brown’s spring 2012 collection Neons & Nudes is the perfect make-up look to complement your new bright outfits. This season, Bobbi’s mixing easy-to-wear neutrals with bright jolts of colour.

„I love the juxtaposition of subtle with not-so-subtle colours – it’s about highlighting one feature at a time.“

Bobbi Brown

I recommend getting a bright orange lipstick and wearing it for example with a neon pink sweater. Keep the rest of your make-up simple and neutral.

Dior’s Spring Make-up Look: Garden Party

Dior Garden Party

“After women, flowers are the most heavenly creation.” — Christian Dior

Here is your perfect make-up look to complement your new floral outfit. The huge S/S 2012 fashion trend has also come across the world of beauty. Dior‘s “Garden Party” collection is amazing and will be available in Switzerland starting on the 18th of January, 2012.

Karlie Kloss Dior

First of all, let me tell you a little story:

Christian Dior grew up in Granville, on the cliffs of Normandy, in a house buffeted by strong winds, and seemingly unsuited to the creation of a garden. However, the young man’s creative strength and relentless hard work defied nature, and today one can still admire the garden in bloom and in particular, the fantastic rose garden planted with his own hands.

Christian Dior also loved the excitement of parties, and often hosted the aptly named “Grand Balls of the Century” with enchanted beauties from the Normandy coast and Paris alike. The theme of the festive garden is still alive today throughout many Dior creations. The Dior spring colour collection is inspired by Dior’s fantastic garden.”

Let me get you started with the stars of the collection and my absolute favourites: The two SCENTED nail polishes in 694 Forget-me-not (light mauve) and 504 Waterlily (soft green) which you can see on my nails below.

DIOR VERNIS “Garden Party” (one-shot): CHF 38 each

The nail polishes come with a rose scent that is only discernible when you hold your nails close to your nose (which started to look weird as I couldn’t stop myself from smelling my yummy finger nails). The scent only starts to appear when the polish dries on your nails. It is amazing, love, love, love it!
