Makeup trends for spring 2013 take shape around the clothing trends they accompany. But when it comes to beauty, each new season is also about expanding your horizons, experimenting and trying something new. From the runway trends to the tutorials and how-tos, this is where we'll constantly update you on all things makeup related for spring.
It’s as much anticipated for its high energy performances and props as it is for the actual lingerie… and each year Victoria’s Secret delivers something that’s as bouncy and glittery as you can possibly imagine. While this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show won’t be broadcast until Tuesday, Dec. 4 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, that doesn’t mean we can’t get some sneak…
You can’t fault the beauty of Frida Gustavsson: even when she’s having her hair tugged in every direction she manages to look a picture of serene elegance and grace. It was hard to believe the transformation – this was backstage at Jean Paul Gaultier’s spring 2013 show after all – that soon occurred from classic beauty to ’80s Madonna.

Charlotte Free amidst the madness of Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights? Kayka Ko as Tamara de Lempicka’s Art Deco driver? Diana Moldovan caught up in the surrealist world of Dali? As far as model show packages go, IMG’s latest is a work of art. Literally. The artworks themselves may not be original but the concept of pastiching them to model photos as showcards feels…

Topped by a barrel-wave of rockabilly hair, Frida Gustavsson stars in the summer 2012 look book from high street chain H&M. It’s a particularly enticing collection for anyone bitten by the ’50s bug; vintage influences melded with sporty, modern silhouettes and fabrics.
