Spring Beauty

Today we introduce this season’s best hair and makeup tendencies. For Spring beauty 2009, you will find the whatshewears.ie team’s favourite Spring styles and the top products for getting these looks.

Straight Hair

This doesn’t mean the end of beachy waves or curls anytime soon, but this season is all about straight, swingy hair, if you can imagine such a thing. Unlike the GHD straight hair of previous seasons, this look is full of natural, movement with no need for straight properness. Think Claudia Schiffer who captures this look perfectly and her fabulous flowing mane. To get this supermodel-type hair, here are some key tools of the trade:

My hair stylist once advised me to brush with a paddle brush to dry my hair, not a round brush. It gives you bounce and smoothness,all at the same time. The best brush to achieve this is The Body Shop’s Paddle brush (€9.65)

To get your hair feeling smooth and silky use Redken’s Satinwear 02 Ultimate Blow-Dry Lotion.

Bo ho Up do’s

..are a totally differently glam hair do for those of you who don’t have long locks. See how to sport this trend which we covered a few days ago.

Bold Orange Lipstick

Chloe Sevigny wears this lip colour no matter what the occasion or season. This sassy, bold shade was really big on the runways this spring, seen combined with messy hair at Proenza Schouler’s fashion show.
How to achieve this look? Leave your face “barely there”, with some mascara and let this lip shade take centre stage.

The easiest to come by lipstick in this shade is Mac’s Lady Danger (€11.20) which is described as vivid, right coral red.
Try this blood-orange lip colour by Max Factor’s Vivid Impact Max Lipcolour in Ms Right (€7.20).

Purple Nailpolish

If you haven’t already noticed, the colour purple was huge over winter and is big again this Spring. Zac Posen’s runway was full of futuristic violet shades which can by hard to pull off. Instead we have opted for the darker shades of this colour scheme, letting you dip into the trend without looking too space age!

Check out this luscious purple lacquer by Laura Mercier or a rich dark violet in the fabulous form of Vendetta by Chanel (€18).
