04.09.13

#1: GOING GREEN: GREEN IS THE COLOR OF THE YEAR! GO GREEN BY EATING RAW & HEALTHY TO KEEP YOUR BODY ALKALINE, GO GREEN BY RESPECTING THE ENVIRONMENT & GO GREEN BY BUYING VINTAGE AND RECYCLED CLOTHING AND FURNITURE.

#2 PALE NAILS: NEUTRAL NAILS ARE THE WAY TO GO FOR SPRING. FIND YOUR BEST NEUTRAL SHADE AND LAYER IT FOR DIFFERENT EFFECTS. WE LOVE RGB COSMETICS FOR THEIR HIPP FOUNDATION COLLECTION. PLUS THEY’RE CHEMICAL FREE. WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE?

#3: OIL CLEANSING : USE OIL TO CLEANSE YOUR SKIN. SOUNDS COUNTERINTUITIVE, BUT OIL BINDS TO THE NATURAL OILS IN YOUR SKIN AND LEAVES SKIN FEELING SMOOTH AND MOISTURIZED. PLUS IT REMOVES ALL YOUR MAKE UP NATURALLY! WE LOVE THE FOLLOWING BLENDS: CASTOR, JOJOBA & GRAPE SEED. AND IT’S SUPER EASY TO MAKE YOUR OWN. FOLLOW THIS CHART FOR PERCENTAGES OF CASTOR OIL VS. CARRIER OILS. THE OILER YOUR SKIN THE LESS CASTOR OIL YOU NEED. ADD DROPS OF DIFFERENT ESSENTIAL OILS ACCORDING TO YOUR SKIN TYPE AND YOU’RE GOOD TO GO! DIY SKINCARE.

OILY: 30/70

NORMAL: 20/80

DRY: 10/90

AGING: 0/100

#4: PASTEL MATTE LIPS: LIPS FOR SPRING ARE COLORFUL AND  MATTE. LOOK FOR SHADES OF MUTED CORALS,  PINKS. WE’VE BEEN BREAKING OUT NARS ROMAN HOLIDAY FOR A GREAT TAKE ON THIS LOOK.

#5: BOLD BROWS : BROWS OF THE MOMENT ARE FULL AND NATURAL. IF YOURS ARE STILL THIN, NOW IS THE TIME TO START GROWING THEM IN. TRY RUBBING CASTOR OIL ON THEM NIGHTLY TO PROMOTE GROWTH. OR BETTER YET – FILL THEM IN WITH POWDER AND A SLANTED BROW BRUSH. WE LIKE SONIA KASHUK’S BROW BRUSH AND LIZETTE FOR MINERAL BROW POWDERS THAT ARE WATER RESISTANT.

 #6: COLORED LINER: BLUE AND GREEN WERE THE COLORS SEEN ALL OVER THE SPRING RUNWAYS. USE THEM FOR A POP OF COLOR AND TO UPDATE YOUR MAKEUP FOR SPRING. KEEP THE REST OF THE FACE NEUTRAL TO LET THE COLOR REALLY SHINE.

#7: LIGHTWEIGHT LEATHER: IT’S NOT JUST FOR WINTER. LOOK FOR LEATHER SHORTS, SHORT SLEEVED LEATHER JACKETS AND PERFORATED LEATHER SHOES FOR SPRING

#8: HAIR ACCESSORIES: GET LONGEVITY OUT OF YOUR BLOWOUTS BY USING HAIR ACCESSORIES TO TRY A NEW STYLE. OR JUST TO ADD A TWIST TO YOUR OUTFIT. VINTAGE STORES ARE GREAT PLACES TO FIND SCARVES TO USE FOR THIS TREND.
