I have been avidly following recent runway photos and reports over the Internet, and have picked up a bevy of beauty trends that I think, will definitely be prevalent this 2013. I'm actually excited for it because this year will be all about modern simplicity!

At the latter months of 2012, I got news that CC Creams are set to take over BB Creams. As early as this month, some major beauty brands like Chanel, Olay, and Juice Beauty have already released their own versions and even though it’s hard to believe, BB Creams are indeed seeing the end of their glorious days.
What exactly is a CC Cream?
CC Cream means Color Correction or Complexion Correction Cream. It has been developed in Japan sometime in 2011, and is now spreading like wildfire across the globe.
It is designed to retain the benefits of BB Cream, but with even better coverage, overall feel, and staying power-It can also conceal and correct skin discolorations. The big benefit of CC Cream is it can REPAIR existing skin problems—it’s something that good ol’ BB Cream can’t do as it is mainly a preventive product. Also, BB Cream is a more general type of skin care- based makeup, whereas CC Cream is more specific, with Aging as its primary concern.
In every goodbye there is always a new hello. I guess it’s now time bid BB Creams farewell, but I’m sure we’re all pretty excited to see what CC Creams can actually do to our skin.
PALE NAILS, TWO-TONE NAILS, METALLICS, DARK NAILS
These are the nail looks that have been dominant in most runway shows at the start of 2013. Actually, we’ve already seen most of them-especially the Two- Tone manicure by YSL-way, way back, but they’re making a grand comeback and this time, they’re gonna be big.
A MINIMALIST STATEMENT: Strong Brows, Bold Eyeliner, Twiggy Lashes, Bright Red Lipstick
This year, the focus is on a flawless, healthy canvas with either a touch of thick brows and lashes or graphic eyeliner. There will also be a diversion from the modern true red lipstick to the bright, poppy kind of red. Bottomline, this year's makeup is all about utilizing the most important features of the face.
SEAS OF BLUE AND GREEN
Since it's the year of Emerald Green, the lush, green eyeshadow will be a staple eye color of Spring/Summer 2013. It is backed up by a pastel, aqua shade of blue for a look that is utterly modern, fresh, bright, and youthful.
How about you? What particular 2013 beauty trend are you excited about? I'm leaning towards this combination: lush lashes, strong brows, bright red lipstick, plus two- toned nails! :)
