Spring is a time to spruce up in more ways than one. Most of our beauty routines could use a good shake up and we’re here to help with Spring trends, tips and products that will make you look and feel fresh and young this season.
Your skin is the foundation for any look and its health is of course of the utmost importance, given that good skin will never go out of style.
Protection from the sun not only keeps our skin looking younger and healthier, but it actually makes it healthier too. Dr. James R. Jordan of the Face and Skin Center explains that using sun protection doesn’t have to be messy or difficult. “Our powder sunscreens go on just like applying makeup, making it easy to protect your skin,” he says. “These offer great, even protection.”
EVE LOM’s cleanser was described by Vogue as “probably the best cleanser in the world” and is the foundation for the entire EVE LOM skin care regime. The cleanser is expertly balanced for all skin types, skin concerns and environmental conditions. Made from a blend of four aromatic plant oils, the result is glowing, radiant skin with a smoother, more refined texture. You’ll get deep cleaning without drying or stripping your skin. Get the entire EVE LOM regime at CoatTails.
At Ridgeland’s BellaChes, we’ve discovered a product for those that want younger, plumper lips without the cost and hassle of injections – Lipsmart. With combined moisture and plumping qualities, you’ll look as young as a Spring chicken!
As the weather warms, we often find ourselves craving a sunkissed glow. At Material Girls, you can snag Kismet’s Body Bronzing Lotion. The quick drying formula is infused with aloe vera and chamomile and won’t rub off on clothes. Sounds like a win-win to us!
This Spring, trade in a dark and moody smoky eye for bright and feminine pastels with a little shimmer. But rest assured, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice glamour if that’s your go-to style. Just freshen it up! Amy Head of Amy Head Cosmetics says, “My favorite color concept for Spring is peachy pink with a shot of gold. Jazz eye shadow is my new sexy gold that I’m wrapping around the whole eye. Keep gold in mind this Spring to pair with everything from fun, bright lips to the softest of nude lip color, too.” Amy recommends gold lids with lots and lots of lush lashes.
Also try Amy’s Gelato shadow, a clear burst of peachy pink sheen, a beautiful, complimentary companion to the sultry gold of Jazz. “I love Gelato with translucent pink lips or with a strong, orange lip color with shine,” says Amy. “It’s just gorgeous!” As the name implies, it pulls the whole look of peach, pink, and gold together. “Place on the apples of the cheeks all season long and it goes with all the colors in your Spring collection.”
For nails, go for a fun, lighthearted hue as the days get warmer. We’re loving Arco Avenue’s picks of Blue Orchid, Fashion, and Chantilly Lace by Deborah Lippmann.
