Put a Lil’ Spring In Your Step – Beauty tips

Attention ladies, it’s spring already! Spring doesn’t only mean a lovely aroma, flowers and sunny days; it also means that there are new beauty trends coming up!

Natalia Zurawska has some beauty tips for you (from head to toe) which will help you through the spring time!
Enjoy!

Tip 1: Lips
Orange lips are really big for spring and look especially amazing on South Asian Skin tones.

Elizabeth Arden has come out with a Beautiful Jumbo Colour Gloss Stick, only available for a limited time. This has got to be one of my favorite makeup goodies yet and I hope it does end up staying in their line. The gloss stick is extra moisturizing providing vibrant colour and shine. It comes with a sharpener as well. Just perfection for the perfect pout!

Best Tips:

  • To keep lipstick on extra long, line your entire lip with the same colour of lip liner.
  • To prevent lipstick from bleeding, apply powder around the lip line to set.
  • Make sure to keep eye makeup more muted if lips are going to be vibrant.

Tip 2: Eyes
Blue, green and purple eye shadows and eyeliner are back! Do not be afraid, a lot has changed since the 80’s. For an added pop of colour, simply line your eyes, or apply only to the inner corners with a more neutral colour along the lid. Really bright eye shadow colours should be used as an accent for a day look. Darker shades of blue, green and purple may be applied to the entire lid like a smokey eye for a night on the town.

I love the eye shadow quad sets by Clinique. The colours are gorgeous, already matched and stay on for hours. I especially love the On Safari (green tones), Galaxy (blue tones) and Going Steady (purple tones)

Best Tips:

  • Make sure not to extend eye shadow into the brow bone.
  • Keep lips neutral if you are going for a dramatic eye look.
  • Apply concealer to eyelids before eye shadow application for lasting results.

The Tightline cake Eye Liner by Laura Mercier is a truly spectacular. You can activate it with water or with the Tightline Activator to keep it waterproof. Create a paste using the Laura Mercier flat brush and apply by wiggling in between lashes and inner eye line. With gorgeous shades such as Bleu Marine, Plum Riche and Forest Green, there is a colour for everyone. It also comes in more classic tones such as Charcoal Grey, Mahogany Brown, GunMetal Smoke and Black Ebony.

Tip 3: Body
I love the new cream by Soap and Glory. With major moisturizing ingredients such as shea, coconut bar, lime and almond oils, it nourishes post-winter skin leaving it smelling oh so fresh and rejuvenating. Kiwi juice water is also added. Yum!

Tip 4: Hair
Dry shampoo is always great to keep on hand or in your purse. I love the travel size one by TRESemmé. TRESemmé volumizing dry shampoo has such a great citrus scent to pep you up all while freshening up your hair, adding volume and eliminating oil. It also helps keep hair colour with less washing. Simply spray on and brush through before styling hair.
