Brights, nudes and neutrals are all words that describe 2012 spring/summer makeup colors. However, your clients may be asking, “Are they wearable for the everyday woman?” Absolutely! Not only are they wearable for women of every age, they also may help clients feel refreshed and renewed as they step into summer after a long winter. The key to making bright colors wearable is to use the bold color only in one area and go neutral with the rest.

In this makeover, Christi Nicolet, a mother of two from Townsend, Massachusetts, effortlessly wears the bright pink 2012 hot color, cabaret, on her eyes, along with a set of beautiful, full, shaped eyebrows, sheer pink blush and a soft lip.

Step 1: Apply moisturizer with fingers and use a disposable lip brush to apply a lip balm to the lips.

Step 2: Using the fingers, apply face and eye primer all over the face.

Step 3: With a small, synthetic camouflage brush, apply peach concealer to the under-eye area and blend well.
