Top 3 Beauty Trends for Spring 2011


New York City's Spring 2011 Fashion Week is finally over, which means that the leggy models, cranky editors, and Lady Gaga wannabes will soon be moving on to London.

But before we travel across the pond, here's a recap of the biggest beauty trends you'll see next spring.

1. Violet makeup
From pale lilac to bright violet, purple makeup — especially in eyeshadow — is the bold color of choice next season. My favorite? The Lancôme Violet Groove polish (new for Spring 2011) on nails at Chris Benz.

Spotted at: Jason Wu, Chris Benz, Monique Lhuillier, Rag & Bone, Victoria Beckham, Whitney Eve

2. The side part
Very '70s schoolgirl, deep side parts anchored hairstyles from stick straight to beachy messy. Adding barrettes and hiding behind sideswept bangs is optional.

Spotted at: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Badgley Mischka, Carolina Herrera, Chris Benz, Cynthia Rowley, Cynthia Steffe, Dennis Basso, Diane Von Furstenberg, DKNY, Donna Karan, Jason Wu, Lela Rose, Marc by Marc, Michael Kors, Narciso Rodriguez, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte

3. Gold metallics
Whether it was glittery eyelids at Anna Sui or gilded lashes and lips at Rodarte, gold has replaced 2010's pearly silvers as the must-have metallic for 2011.

Spotted at: Anna Sui, Behnaz Sarafpour, Donna Karan, Rodarte, Thakoon
