Beauty trends and tips for 2013

Happy New Year! It’s always exciting to venture into a new year and wonder what it will bring.

We’ve been pondering the beauty trends of the year ahead and deciding which products we should be investing in during 2013. Yes, beauty products are an investment. Not a frivolity. Right? Right.

According to Vogue, eyes are going to be big this year. The mag reports that the four major fashion shows for spring/summer 2013 all featured eyes very heavily.

“Eyes were the focus at shows across all four cities, with Donna Karan and Altuzarra in New York, Clements Ribeiro and Christopher Kane in London, Gucci and Versace in Milan and Chanel and Dior in Paris all choosing to draw attention to coloured liner, jewelled lids and extra-long lashes,” says Vogue.

Elle magazine, meanwhile, says that for spring, designers are plumping for black eyeliner to define lids.

So that’s a tremendous reason to splash out on some natural eye make-up such as Dr Hauschka liquid eyeliner, the Dr Hauschka eye shadow palette and some Lavera long lash mascara.

Lips are going to be important this year too. Grazia says lips are “burning fiery hot!” If you’re feeling really brave, try Dr. Hauschka Inner Glow Lipstick in pink topaz. Go as bright as you dare!
