Spring Makeup Trend: Estheticians and Makeup Artists Alike - Take Note

Every couple of seasons, the makeup trends cycle back to the Nude and Natural look.  For Spring 2013, the nude look is back, however, the goal is not faking nude, but actually going au naturel.

Celebrity makeup artists, including KJ Bennett and Emily Katz, advise using very light concealers an virtually no foundation.  If a foundation is absolutely necessary, Bennett recommends a silicone-based product that is light to nearly sheer.  In addition, lips should be colored to match their natural color.

Estheticans and Facial Specialists are an crucial part of this Spring Trend, because flawless, or nearly perfect skin is essential to pulling off this look.  So how do you incorporate this trend into your services?  Bennett recommends using and retailing products containing Hyaluronic Acid Gel and Silica.

Since lips are going to look bare as well, your clients will need to have exfoliated and moisturized puckers ready for spring.  Lip Treatments are an easy add-on and the June Jacobs Lip Kit works great as both back bar product and retail.

Finally, dewy is in and shiny is out, so no matter what part oft he beauty industry you are in, blotting papers are a must at your check-out counter.
