TOP 5: SPRING BEAUTY TRENDS WITH JORDY POON

Vancouverite Jordy Poon has hit it big in New York City, beautifying the likes of Sienna Miller, Katy Perry, Devon Aoki, supermodel Liu Wen and editorials in Vogue, Elle, Nylon and Russh. We caught up with him to discuss spring make-up trends.

Bright Eyes
S/S 2011 is all about strokes of bold colour on the eyes. Nothing too technical-looking but more of a smudge or a wash of colour across the lids. I love all of Lancôme's new Color Design Eye Brightening All-In-One five shadow and liner palettes. They come in beautiful bold colours and are easy to use. Purple is the biggest colour for spring

 

Bold Lips
After so many seasons, bold lips are still a big beauty statement. Now we are leaning more towards a matte or creamy texture. Nothing frosted, metallic, pearlized or sparkly. In terms of colour, it’s about reds and pinks. Try NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils for a one step quick fix.

 

Eyeliner
Eyeliner is always a good way to accessorize and accent your style. I love Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils. They go on effortlessly.

 

 

 

Contoured Cheeks
The contoured cheek look is definitely the only way to apply blush this season. Try neutral blushes or use your powder bronzer to create shape. As for bright pinks or peaches, use them only as an accent over the sculpted cheeks.

 

Matte Skin
Natural glowing skin never goes out of style, but we are starting to appreciate a perfectly powdered complexion. If you have never worn powder, this is the season to experiment. On the other hand, if you have been wearing powder for the past fifteen years, it's time to throw it out!
