As I was flipping through the new Sephora catalogue, it hit me there are two very different makeup trends in 2008. One natural-looking, the other vibrant and artistic. On the one hand, spring 2008 fashion shows feature bright colors and boldly glamorous looks. On the other, natural mineral makeup is growing in popularity. The best known — Bare Minerals — has been joined by Leeza Gibbons’ Sheercover, Rawminerals, Laura Mercier Mineral Makeup collection, and others. The appeal is look and feel. Mineral makeups are safer on sensitive skin and enhance your natural look, rather than cover it.
On the glamor front, Sephora mentioned these makeup trends for 2008:
– Bright 60’s-style, purple, or golden lids
– Thicker, larger brows
– Fresh, natural skin
– Rosy cheeks
Cosmetic companies demonstrating these and other trends in step-by-step videos include Hank Hoffman of Smashbox Cosmetics, showing the spring 2008 “Fuji Rock meets ’60s Flower Child” look:
