Forever two seasons ahead, runway models are already sporting Fall and Winter 2010 looks – and it’s not even spring yet. But in case you’re having a hard time remembering the upcoming season’s trends from last summer’s runways, we’re happy to give a little refresher course. Pastel eyes, pops of purple, peach lips, defined cheeks and beachy, voluminous waves are all totally wearable and perfectly suited for spring’s signature vibe of freshness and renewal.

Pastel Eyes

That’s right, the oh-so-80’s trend of pastel eye shadow is back with a vengeance, but keep it sheer to avoid looking like a fashion victim circa 1986. Jane Iredale’s Bling Eyeshadow Kit offers gold, blue, pink, purple and green in flattering shades that bring the look to 2010.

Pops of Purple

Whether on the eyes in watercolor washes of plum and lavender or on the lips in dramatic violet, purple makeup is in this season. Try it with NVEY Eco’s Matte Violet Rose Organic Lipstick, or Matte Periwinkle Lavender Organic Eye Shadow.

Peach Lips

Innocent but with a touch of sexy color, peach and apricot shades of lipstick can complement nearly any complexion. Josie Maran’s sheer coral beige is pretty and understated, while Korres Coral 45 makes the trend pop in a brighter, more vibrant shade.

Defined Cheeks

Moschino did it in sweet, succulent pink while Derek Lam took it in a decidedly more bronzed direction, but nearly all of the top designers gave their models some decidedly pronounced cheekbones this season. Keep it soft and youthful with Logona’s blush duo in Apricot, Peche or Mauve.

Beachy, Voluminous Waves

There’s just something about windswept, just-got-back-from-the-beach waves that feels inexplicably good, isn’t there? It’s so casual and carefree. Get this voluminous style with a sea salt spray like John Masters Sea Mist, which adds texture and volume. Check out a step-by-step tutorial at StyleList.
