With the holidays just around the corner here at BeTrendMe we thought we would take a look back on our favorite trends from 2012. Color Blocking was seen everyone this year from jackets to pants. What’s great about this trend is it is so versatile you can still wear it this winter BeTrenders! Bold prints were a great way to add an edge to an outfit and make your basic pieces stand out such as with a bold printed bottom. Pastel hues dominated the runways this year from lilac to mint green to pastel pink. Whether it was a dress or dip dyed hair, we’re looking at you Charlotte Free, pastels were crucial for 2012′s fashion. Metallics were the perfect way to dress up a basic outfit from daywear to a night on the town, whether it was with a pair of silver leggings or a silver blazer. Peplum was spotted everywhere this year from the mall to Kate Middleton. This trend adds elegance and makes for a more formal look. We cannot wait to see what next year’s biggest trends will be!

If you have not watched one of Bad Lip Reading’s youtube videos, stop what you’re doing and prepare to laugh uncontrollably. The creators take popular videos and scenes from movies and put what it looks like the character is saying when you read their lips, which are usually outrageous and random. There are currently 35 videos ranging from Twilight, the 2012 debate, scenes from movies and popular music videos. Here at BeTrendMe our personal favorite is still the “Edward and Bella” video. These videos are definitely perfect for when you’ve had a bad day. But be warned BeTrenders, once you watch one video you’ll want to watch them all!

2012 was a great year for trends of all kinds, BeTrendMe is going to show you our fave top five beauty trends from 2012. The first trend that BTM loves is the bold lip. The bold lip is a great trend, and anyone can wear this trend, there are a variety of versions of it. For spring and summer, you can wear a bright pink, or orange and for autumn or winter the look can still be transitioned into a deeper fuchsia or a darker orange. The next trend that BTM loves is bold brows. This trend has graced runways everywhere, and this trend is super easy to achieve. BTM loves the way a bold brow frames the eyes! BTM loves the fresh faced/au natural look that has been popping up everywhere. It is a great look for daytime, for school, and for a day of shopping with your girls! Lip stains are a fab way to have some color on your lips, without the weight or thickness of a lipstick. Lip stains come in variety of colors and shades, from bright bold colors, to darker hues. BTM has noticed that everyone seems to ranting and raving about BB Creams! A BB Cream is an “all-in-one” facial cosmetic that has a serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock all in the same product. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder. The coverage is buildable. BTM loves all these trends so much that we just had to share them all with you BeTrenders! What do you think BeTrenders?
