Spring into Beauty

Nature really shows in this season’s makeup color story. With names like hyacinth and luminous lilac, you can see how eye shadow colors mimic the florals we see in this spring’s fashions. You’ll find vivid mattes and polished pastels which can be worn alone or blended with a pearlized pigment for extra dimension. New exciting formulas help create a silky smooth finish.

The runway trend for brows is the “natural” look. Brow tints create beautiful true to life shades for fool proof brows. I am normally a huge fan of brow powder or shadow to fill in brows, but these new brow tints are like hair color for brows! Super easy and natural.

For a fresh and flawless complexion try the soft, smooth texture of a pressed Mineral Foundation Powder. Sweep these micronized high-pigment minerals over your skin for a finish that’s pure perfection.

Apply pink blush over the apples of your cheeks. Just enough to give a hint of radiance. Modern, chic and oh-so girlie!

On everybody’s lips — lipstick. Lips are more color saturated than ever before, appearing fuller, smoother, irresistibly luxurious. Never fear, saturation doesn’t necessarily mean dark or heavy, just color. But if it seems like a little too much color from the tube, dab it on your lips with your finger. Pencil not needed. Formula is significant these days as so many new lipsticks have vitamins, peptides and sunscreen in them. How great is it to get color and treatment all in one!

So, go out and explore the colors of spring — and don’t forget to smell the roses along the way.
