What's your FAVORITE MAKEUP TREND right now?

So here I am on Friday night...happily at my computer with a glass of wine...reading through my tweets and other favorite beauty blogs and couple of things stick out to me in makeup trends!!!  Have you noticed what the big...BIG...BIGGEST trend in makeup is going to be for Spring??  Well, it seems to me that it's pointing in ONE direction....
Now for ME (my own makeup), I usually go with a bolder, smokier eye and a nice nude lip.  Anyone that knows me will tell you that.  I'm a little predictable with my nude colored heels and nude lips.  BUT...I love the idea of a bright fun lip color for spring!!!  YAY!!  Now when I go bright, I go REALLY bright - like a super HOT Coral orBRIGHT FUSCHIAPINK!!  No point in trying this trend if you don't go all the way!! 
Now...how to do this and do it right?? 
Well, first make sure your lips are healthy!  Bold color on lips that are peeling and cracked is just not okay.  If your lips are sad right now, stick to gloss. :)  See my blog on How To Keep your LIPS HEALTHY for some easy suggestions on how to cure those winter lips in time for spring color!!!  Once your lips are good and ready...go for it!!!  Follow your instincts and pick a color!!  Here are some helpful hints to help you along....
  1. A bold lip AND a bold (dark) eye do NOT necessarily go together.  I will say there are no rules in makeup, and there ARE ways to pull this off.  BUT...unless you're used to making a statement with your makeup, it's best to stick to this one rule - A BOLD EYE = soft lips....and...BOLD LIP-COLOR = soft eyes.  Make sense??
  2. Don't skimp on your skin. This trend looks best with flawless "looking" skin.  Hardly anyone actually HAS flawless skin.  But, make sure you have your skincare/foundation/ concealer/ powder routine in check before you throw on FUSCHIA lips!!  
  3. Then throw on a little cheek color and a coat of mascara and your good to go!!! 
Coming soon to MY BLOG - How to apply flawless bold color to your lips - a more detailed walk through of applying the color itself.  Until then, pick out your new FUN, BOLD lip-color for Spring and play with it at home!!  Remember - flawless skin...pretty cheek color, coat of mascara and your BEAUTIFUL BRIGHT lips - and you're ready for the next season!!!

NOW tell me what you try!  What challenges did you have??? I want to hear! And...
What's YOUR favorite makeup trend right now?
