After MONTHS of wishful thinking and battling a polar vortex, SPRING IS HERE!!!! No more losing mittens and ruining a good hair day with a toque! This spring’s beauty trends are gorgeously optimistic and the perfect way to celebrate ~spring break~. Here are my must-haves to look gorgeous and on trend while we enjoy some sunshine!
Nude, perfected skin: Maybe Beyoncé wakes up flawless, but most of us need a little help balancing out our skin tones in a way that looks like we aren’t really wearing any makeup!
Try: Clean & Clear® Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
Moisturized, protected skin: The “natural” look is a huge trend for spring/summer 2014. Keep your skin looking flawless by moisturizing and protecting it from harmful UV rays.
Try: ROC SOLEIL PROTEXION+ FACE Mattifying Quenching Fluid
Dry Shampoo: Not only does it keep your hair from getting stringy, it keeps your locks smelling fresh!
Try: Batisse Dry Shampoo
Soft berry lips: Neon too much of a statement for you? Keep it soft and smoochable with a soft berry tone.
Try: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in ‘Elusive’
Neon orange lips: That bright burst of colour is back! Nothing says summer is around the corner like a punch of neon!! Neon orange popped up several times on the runways for spring, and it looks great on pretty much everybody!
Try: MAC Lipstick in ‘Neon Orange’
Pastel eyeshadow wash (blue, pink): Such an easy way to be on trend. Wipe a single shade of a pastel colour over your lids for a modern take on 1970’s glamour.
Try: Illamasqua Eye Shadow in ‘Anja’ or ‘Toxic’
Silvery white eyeshadow: I love this ethereal, angelic look. Make sure it’s sheer and not too packed on and you will look fresh off the runway!
Try: MAC Pressed Pigment Eyeshadow in ‘Angelic’
Inked liner, drawn shapes: Who doesn’t love a classic cat eye? This season bring out your inner artist and try a slightly edgier look †by drawing more geometric shapes to flatter your eyes!
Try: Illamasqua Precision Ink in Abyss
White lids/eyeliner: A pop of white eyeliner on the upper lids on an otherwise nude, sun kissed face? Yes please!
Try: MAC Eyeliner Pencil in ‘Fascinating’
Glittery lower liner: An instantly effective way to achieve understated glamour – try a thin line of an opalescent glitter liner along your lower lash line.
Try: Lise Watier Eye Glitter Liner in ‘Opale’
Nails: A nude or a blue polish will give your nails the perfect spring treatment.
Try: Essie ‘Truth Or Flare’ or ‘Cocktails And Coco’
Happy Spring Break everyone!
