Nordstrom Flagship Spring Cosmetic Trend Show 2012 (Recap)

Nordstrom held their spring 2012 Cosmetic Trend Show last Saturday and as usual, it was quite the show! It was my second time covering the Trend Show as social media press, and really enjoyed tweeting each of the looks from the front row. 

Even though the Trend Show highlights what's hot for spring and summer beauty and fragrance, Nordstrom didn't fail to support with spring fashion looks from various departments in the store. Feast your eyes on all of this amazingness from DvF, Rachel Roy, Citizens of Humanity, Elie Tahari and Derek Lam:

All of these avid beauty fans were up bright & early for the show!

Nordstrom always sets a clever theme for their Trend Show, with each scene featuring essential makeup pieces from all the great brands in the store. This spring's theme was "Getaway", featuring "Glow Getters" golden, healthy radiance; "Sun-Dressed Eyes" with rose gold and shimmery yellow palettes; and "Splash-Glam Lips" with luscious corals and reds.

This year's Trend Show counts these trends among this spring & summer's beauty getaway essentials. You can see them demonstrated in the various looks in my photos:
