I definitely feel the same way as you about the recurrence of trends, Christine. Every year, the beauty industry is all “pastels for spring! How new and fresh!”, followed soon by “flawless skin for summer! How new and fresh!” and finally, of course, “dark lips for fall! How new and fresh!”

Seriously, it happens every. Single. Year. Ridiculous!

Which isn’t to say that I don’t sometimes follow them, though 😉 There’s just something about winter that begs for a darker lip….

Not really.
I do change the colour range i wear every season.
My favorite seasons are Summer (golds and corals) and Fall (Bronze, coppers and other warm colours).
During winter i usually opt for smokey eyes in various cool tones.
And during spring i love doing light coloured eye looks with bold coloured lips!

XOXO

meh to an extent but its not really to follow the trend. Take for example dark lips and eyes for fall with purples and dark reds. I tend to lean towards these colors in the fall but thats because when its fall I feel like my mood changes and I like to reflect that in my makeup. Besides I like wearing reds and purples year round, its just it feels appropriate to wear them during winter and fall, I just don’t limit myself. I do pull out the hot pink lipstick in winter and smokey eye in summer(if its not too hot haha then I just feel gross).

It depends on the trend. I wasn’t one for black lips when that was popular a while ago, but I’ve been known to wear red in the winter like you. 🙂

Yeah I amy follow the seasonal trends or what’s in the magazine once in a while superficially but really I just go with my mood and me using makeup of any kind from the eye make up or the color of lipstick I’m using really does follow along with my moods which ever way they swing!

I sort of do, it all depends on how I feel about the trend. I am not going to follow something I think is ugly. (like UGG boots for some reason I just cant stand them.)

I really dont i must say. I always stick to my favorites all year around. The only thing i might change or follow is nail polish color trends but not always.

Not really. If something doesn’t look good on me in the winter it’s not gonna look good on me in the summer either. The only things I change seasonally are how many layers of clothing I wear.

Eh, not really. But then, there’s a fairly large hole in the recurring “summer” trends that look TERRIBLE on me. I am NOT a bronzer and nude l/g kind of girl. No matter the season, I prefer bright colors, strongly defined eyes and lips, fairly even porcelain skin on myself. No bronzers, artistically wearing tinted moisturizers to show off freckles, barely-there eyes…. It just isn’t flattering on my skin tone and face shape.

Kind of. My usual look is base, rosy brown or peach blush, winged liner or smokey eyes, and whatever lip goes with what I’m wearing. I guess when I start digging out my fall clothes, I apply slightly darker shades. I don’t really wear peaches or pinks in fall/winter, but I would wear grey/plum in spring/summer and I think a lot of women do the same.

Usually just for nails, but I do it because it feels right to use darker, more gloomy colors for fall/winter & brights, pastels & softer colors for spring/summer
