I’m so excited spring is around the corner, and I’m even more excited about the new spring goodies out there! Here is a list of my faves and why they are so essential for spring 2013!
One of our faves of the year, this new powder foundation is a must-have. The powder leaves your skin with a matte finish so even the spring and summer heat won’t ruin your makeup or let your skin turn oily by the end of the day. The best part? For more intense coverage, layer on this product with a wet brush. Buildable colour that suits every skin type, available in 25 different shades, with three different undertones – does it get any better? I don’t think so.
Stella McCartney was one of the many designers to show us that emerald green is definitely the colour of the year. From fashion and accessories to makeup, emerald green is the spring trend you can’t afford to miss out. Naturally, the beauty gurus at Sephora have got you covered with this complete set. Containing two shadow blocks, one jumbo eyeliner, glitter dust, lid stain and mascara, the Color of the Year Set in Emerald will have you rocking this shade, no sweat, this spring.
Combining the softness of pink with a dramatic grey, this luxe palette is all you need for a spring-inspired smoky eye. For a soft smoky eye, you can opt for the pearlescent pink, which we happen to adore. If a bold evening look is what you’re in need of, the magenta shade will do the trick.
A mix of subtle pinks and a touch of colour, these shimmering beads are the perfect addition to any spring makeup collection. Not only are pastel shades hot for spring 2013, but the shimmer effect of these highlighting beads will brighten your look and shine some light on your best features. For best results, apply sparingly to the cheekbones only.
This new product is enriched with the same argan oil as their amazing line of hair products. With its anti-aging properties, argan oil hand cream is a great way to fight the first signs of aging. (Did you know aging is first noticed on the hands and lips?) Plus, this cream will leave your hands feeling silky soft.
Definitely a luxe purchase, this sensual fragrance is actually meant to be sprayed on your lingerie and sleepwear. This iris, sandalwood, vanilla and rose fragrance will definitely kick up the sensual side of things in the bedroom. But, I think it dubs as a great fragrance on the skin, as well. Double-duty products are always our favourites.
This subtle pastel shade should be on every beautista’s wish list this spring. Pastels are hot and the 2013 runways proved it. The ever-so-pale hint of pink in this polish is aptly named, reminding us of the femininity and delicacy of a ballet dancer. Besides, what nail polish collection is complete without a little OPI?
A classic red never goes out of style but this season, we’re all about matte finishes and punchy pouts so this shade is perfect. Think bold, bright and vibrant for spring 2013. And at a price like this, we think we’ll take two!
Yes, it’s finally time to say goodbye to pale faces and re-embrace the power of bronzer! This new bronzing powder from Annabelle is ideal for any skin tone as you can go as light or as dark as you’d like, depending on how you apply it. For a darker effect, gradually sweep on more product. The combination of deep shades and shimmering and matte finishes means it highlights and complements the skin in a way monotone powders can’t.
A blend of peaches and pinks, this bright blush is perfect for rocking the brights trend. Add a pop of colour to your cheeks with this smooth, matte pressed powder. For best results: we recommend applying this to the apples of your cheeks. That rosy glow os exactly what your skin could use after its long winter slumber.
