There are some really unique and fun spring trends this year and this week the Makeup Wars bloggers are featuring their favorites.
Below is Sandra Sisso’s Oscar’s look.
Ana Suarez recently wore the look yet again when she posed for a particular magazine. I can’t show you the full picture on this one, so you can guess the magazine!
In case you don’t remember her, here is the original Rockstar Barbie. Given the rich culture, talented musicians, and inspiring fashion of the 80’s, I am not at all surprised to see these influences coming back as the latest trend.
To create an 80’s Rockstar Barbie look, all you need to do is grab pastels. A lot of pastels. MAC is usually pretty good for this (I think these were all press samples given to me for review).
I did a look up using various MAC items. Here it is. If you are going to do this look, don’t forget to add a fluffy scarf. It is a key element of the look. Also, although it is quite bright, women are wearing this as a daytime look, even wearing it to the office.
Another key to the look is to not blend your eye shadow and really play up the blush and lips (I am wearing MAC Matte Candy Yum Yum with a bit of sparkly lavender gloss over it) . Focus instead on strips of color. MAC paint pots work quite well for this.
Previously only younger women would go for looks like this, perhaps for parties or clubs. But now it is all the rage for women in the 40-60 age range. If you are a teen, show this to your mother. She will know all about it! If she doesn’t, she will want to try it!
So, have you tried this look yet? If not, what are you waiting for! You can also see some great new trends for spring at the links below.
