Imperfect Is In
According to The New York Times, the hottest trend for 2012 is imperfection. Finally!
Lip liner, overdone eyes, perfect skin and brow pencils are so last year. Who knew I was so ahead of the trend?!
"The new look for the new year is effortless, minimalist, just-out-of-bed-with-your-lover, according to leading hair and makeup artists ... tousled hair, smudged eyeliner, dewy lips and luminous skin are in," says The New York Times.
My favorite part is the new lipstick look, described as "popsicle mouth," because that's what my lipstick always ends up looking like anyway. Just apply the color to the middle of your bottom lip, press it into your top lip, then roll it. Easy peasy.
They're even saying to skip mascara! That one isn't for me, unless you want a zombie-like creature walking around. If you can pull it off, more power to you!
Another great part of this - hair should match your makeup look. It's about time my rats-nest hair is cool.
