The BOLD (and Bizarre) Beauty Trends of Spring/Summer 2013Michelle Horton
Summertime is all about bold colors and daring beauty choices — and 2013 is no exception.
Take a peek at some of the boldest (and, in some cases, totally bizarre) beauty trends of the moment. How daring will you be this year?
The Boldest + Brightest Beauty Trends to Try 1 of 8
Here are the beauty trends to keep on your radar, from chalkboard nails to a totally bizarre tattoo craze...
Water Color Hair 2 of 8
Hair chalk is so 2012. Yet the hair color trend seems to be coming back this spring/summer — this time in a more wearable hydrating color masque. And unlike hair chalk that dried out our hair (and melted too quickly), this conditioning hair masque keeps your hair looking soft and vibrant through 5 shampoos.
Buy from Urban Outfitters, $24
Ciaté Chalkboard Manicure 3 of 8
It was only a matter of time, right?
The trendy worlds of nail art and chalkboard paint collide in a beauty trend that'll turn us all into doodling 12-year-old girls again. And I mean that in the best possible way.
Buy from Sephora, $25
Majestic Cobalt Eyes 4 of 8
The cobalt-blue trend is heating up in the makeup department — specifically around the eyes. It's more wearable than last year's electric blue trend, but with that same bold pop of "woah" color.
See a how-to Cobalt Blue Smoky Eye Tutorial from Sephora's blog The Glossy.
Metallic Ombre Lips 5 of 8
Lip art is the new nail art, and OCC's metallic "lip tars" and shimmery "loose color concentrate" powder are leading this beauty trend.

Bright, Bold Lips 6 of 8
If metallic ombre lips are a little much for you, bold + bright lips are back — and more than ever. Especially in orange and hot pink hues.

Blue Lipstick 7 of 8
The beauty world is 'abuzz with Lipstick Queen's new "Hello Sailor" lipstick, which applies like a sheer navy blue. And the verdict? Everyone loves it.
Beauty experts claim that the berry tone brightens complexions and even whitens teeth — making this one unusual beauty trend that you might want to try.
Buy from Barney's, $25.
The Growing Tattoo Trend: Nipple Tattoos 8 of 8
So apparently nipple tattoos are a thing over in England — and a really BIG thing, at that. Women of all ages are opting to go under the needle for darker, more defined nipples. I'd like to say that this is a trend that won't make its way across the pond, but who are we kidding? The only question is which Real Housewife will get it first.
