Things are warming up outside and we are finally seeing blue sky and exchanging our faux fur for a lighter leather jacket. I couldn’t be happier- even though it is tough for me to hang up the faux fur until next season. There is something magic that comes when spring starts- a new beginning, a new awakening. Your mind hits the restart button, you start making changes in your beauty routine, your eating routine, and your weekend routine. As we start this new season, I want to keep you up to date on what you need to introduce (or re-introduce) back into your beauty regimen. This fall/winter, I was crazy about the matte lip. I couldn’t get enough of it. Literally. Like any trend I get obsessed with, I didn’t think it was possible to ever wear any other style lip. The thought of lipgloss or shine made me laugh- there was no way these lips were going to gloss!
Then, as the days started to be longer and the sky started to show blue, I started to find that the products most worn on all of the spring campaigns, magazines, and launches were the long wear glossy lip. I was first introduced to it by YSL- then noticed Loreal, Maybelline, and other brands had their version. Trust me- I’m still warming up to the idea- being that I had such a strong love affair with the matte lip, but I’m also enjoying the feeling of change and newness. What is impressive is now the fomulas for these products are long wearing- so you can get the benefits of a gloss, the color of a lipstick, but the longevity of a stain. Here are a few favorites-
So retire your matte (for the moment) if you feel like updating your look for Spring….or add it into the mix of your beauty looks- Xx and Happy Spring!!
