OMG!!!! There is a warm front hitting the Midwest and I am ready for Spring! Except, my makeup is still looking a little winterish. What’s a girl to do?!
I asked my friend, Nadine Banks, who just returned from Mary Kay Cosmetics’ Spring Trends conference, to give us the scoop on colors to use and trends to try.
“The trend this Spring is all about carefree days and reinventing the timeless beauty of 1960’s Americana. The feeling is yesteryear, but the time is now,” says Nadine.
Take a road trip to carefree times with a relaxed, nostalgic vibe. Think sunsets, beach tunes and retro living. Faded, but bright shades create a laid back beauty that is all about maximum impact with minimum effort.
Aptly named, the Mary Kay Spring Collection for 2014 is called…Hello, Sunshine!
Spring will be full of color. Coral and a pale yellow along with bright blues and bronzes.
Sun washed hues create looks drenched in warmth from sunny citrus, dreamy roses and bronzy nudes.
Pops of color on the lips and eyes with a bronze cheek.
Another trend for spring is the cat eye. Not only is easy to do with a black gel liner, it is “Retro Reimagined!” Watch this video from Luis Casco for application tips!
When looking to get that sun kissed glow, use a great bronzer! These are some of the things you want to look for and are offered with the new MK bronzer.
- Made with light perfecting technology
- Skin appears smoother and more even looking
- Luminous pearl finish that applies evenly
- Lightweight, fade resistant, and long-wearing
- Never looks dry on skin
- Won’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles or pores
Spring is all about being beautiful with minimal effort. This makes CC Cream perfect for the season! CC Cream is a tinted moisturizer with sunscreen. Just put it on like a moisturizer and go!
From instant brightening to protection against future damage, from hours of hydration to diminishing the look of blemishes and redness, this silky formula leaves skin looking healthier, younger and more vibrant. It’s a can’t miss, if foundation is more coverage than you need or if you want an easy out the door option with out that “made-up” look.
Hands and Feet
Don’t forget to show hands and feet a little love. Nail colors in creamy yellow and coral are all the rage this season.
