Top Beauty Trends for 2012
One major trend to hit the red carpet this year is gold and pink tones for makeup. Roberto Cavalli, Valentino, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang, and Versace all chose beautiful, rich looking neutral gold tones for their runway models. It’s a very natural looking color combination that would look great on many different skin tones. It’s similar to the metallics that everyone loved last fall, only slightly brighter and more ready for spring.
