4 Spring Beauty Trends & How to Get the Look

It’s a new season, and that means there are a slew of new beauty trends to watch. If you’re ready to make the most of spring, consider these fabulous looks that we scouted on the spring/summer runways.

The Bold & Beautiful Lip

From radiant pinks to show-stopping reds, there was no way to miss the brilliant shades of lipstick that turned heads on every catwalk. The key, though, was in their less meticulous application. It wasn’t the precision that made these looks special, but the soft, almost blurred effect that lent the face a more casual, soft appearance. You can make that look your own by investing in a sheerer product, like Glo Minerals Sheer Lipstick, to elevate your pout without that heavily drawn-on effect.The Hint of Sparkle

Glitter, shimmer, everywhere! The sparkles lent models ethereal looks that felt soft, natural, and elegant instead of unapproachable. You don’t have to coat your eyelids with glitter to make sense of this trend, either—even a subtle take on the look can elevate your beauty routine in the best possible way. Try something that is easy to include in your daily regimen, like bareMinerals Highlighter Stick . Swipe it onto cheekbones for an instant glow that nicely complements your skin all season long.

 
The Romantic Hairstyle

While sharp bobs and quirky braids are two highly popular looks this spring, the other end of the spectrum shows the beauty of pure romance. It was tough to avoid the delicate curls, the wound-up braids, and the Victorian-era stylings that created balance for the otherwise edgy, modern ensembles on the runways. A great hairbrush is key to getting each style right—try Bio Ionic BoarShine Paddle Smoother Brush  to smooth strands and elevate your shine.

 
The Pretty Pastels

If you’re not about to slick on a coral lipstick and don’t want to coat your eyelids in electrifying hues, you’re in luck—pretty pastel shades were just as present, if not more so, on the runways. These shades touch on the lighter side of the spectrum and provide you with a spring-fresh way to capitalize on some of the season’s sweetest products and most unexpected shades. Now is the time to experiment with the greens and roses you might not otherwise wear. Pick up a couple of Tigi Cosmetics HD Eye Shadows  to perk up your eyelids.

Running late in the morning? No problem. You can lock in this fresh-out of the shower look in place by working a dollop of Oribe Creme for Style  through wet hair.

Sleek blow-outs will always be in style. We loved how Dior accentuated long layers by adding bouncy flips to the ends of models’ tresses. Add a nickel-sized amount of BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT Acai Daily Smoothing Serum  to towel-dried hair to lock in moisture. Blow dry hair on medium heat using a round brush, alternating pieces towards and away from the face for a more natural bounce. To finish, warm a small amount of Keratin Complex Shine Vibrant Shine Serum  between your palms and smooth gently over strands for a megawatt sheen.

Back to School: The Beauty Essentials College Students & Teachers Need

It’s that time of year again! As summer slowly winds down, college students and teachers begin planning for the months ahead. In addition to those ever-important school supplies, you may also need to consider a few new additions to your makeup bag. After all, how can you expect to get through a long day on campus or in class without your favorite lip balm or hand cream? We’ve rounded up the essentials you absolutely need to ease back into the busy school year.

Moisturize well. As it gets cooler outside, you’ll find that your skin requires far more attention that it did during summer. Stash a few hydrating essentials in your desk drawer or bag. bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm  not only drenches lips in deeply nourishing passion fruit seed oil, but also protects with vitamin E and leaves behind just a hint of color. It’s perfect for on-the-go and between-class touchups.

Grab a mirror. You’ll be grateful you thought to tuck a pocket-sized version into your arsenal, even if it’s just to check on the state of your foundation in the middle of the day or touch up your lip gloss. The London Bath & Beauty Compact Mirror is a fun choice available in several patterns.

Hydrate often. Don’t dismiss the importance of a high-quality moisturizer that you can use everywhere from your face to your hands. DermOrganic Hand & Body Moisture Lotion  protects skin with a rich combination of Moroccan argan extract, lipids, and vitamins C and E. The healing combination is completely free of fragrances, so it’s great for sensitive skin.

Tame your hair. Don’t allow a frizzy mane to take away from your polished look, whether you’re teaching or attending class. A s
mall bottle of a healing hair product, such as Obliphica Professional Seaberry Serum  can work wonders in an instant. Not only does it calm flyaways, but it also adds shine, preserves color, and leaves your mane softer.

Brighten up. It’s never been easier to fake a wide-eyed appearance, thanks to products formulated specifically to reflect light and illuminate your skin. bareMinerals Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener  works like magic to enhance the appearance of a tired complexion. Apply it directly to dark spots, under the eyes, and on imperfections to reveal brighter, more luminous skin.

Add some color. Just twist, swipe, and blend! That’s all you need to do to add some quick color to the apples of your cheeks, thanks to the convenience of Jane Iredale In Touch Cream Blush . Available in four colors, it boasts a smoothing cream formula that glides into the skin and blends beautifully. You can even use it on your eyelids and lips if you need to pull your look together just a touch.

How To Choose The Right Hair Brush For You!

choosing-the-right-hair-brushThe right hair brush can dramatically affect the condition of your hair. Be sure to be working with the correct brush to get that marvelous hair you’re striving for because gorgeous hair is just a brush away.

Detangle

Hair is structurally weaker when wet, so rough brushing can cause snags and tears. Gently loosen your tangles with a brush that has widely spaced bristles designed to detangle wet hair.

Curl

If you want soft curls without using a curling iron, use a round brush with a ventilated metal, thermal, or ionic barrel. These barrels efficiently trap and circulate heat when you blow dry, plus you’ll cut drying time in half using the ventilated design. The Bio Ionic Round Wave Brush is great for creating curled or wavy hairstyles and looks.

Smooth

A flat, boar bristled paddle brush is perfect for smoothing hair after a blow dry. A flat paddle has a larger surface area designed to reach larger sections of your hair. The Macadamia Paddle Brush with Boar bristles is a quality hair brush that is gentle on the scalp. This brush will create a naturally smooth straight finish.

Straighten

You can blow dry all hair lengths and textures straight with a round brush. Choose metal, synthetic or natural bristles depending on your hair texture and condition. The longer your hair is, the larger the brushes diameter should be.

Style Long

A mixed bristle brush is best for long hair. The natural boar bristles polish the hair while the synthesize nylon ones gently grab and hold sections of your hair. Look for a brush with an air cushion, which allows the brush to glide over painful knots that could potentially break long locks.

Volumize

Vented brushes work wonders for volume! The open design evenly circulates air throughout your strands when you blow dry, resulting in a light, and bouncy finish with tons of movements.

Tease

Use a narrow brush with rows of densely packed bristles to backcomb your hair and smooth out the top layers.

Remember… “a hair on the head is worth two on the brush”
