Here are our top 7 beauty trends for spring:
NEGATIVE SPACE MANIS
We are in love with this new trend in manicures. The look is not only fun and flirty but also surprisingly versatile. On trend with stripping down to the basics this spring, these manis are all about showing off your natural nail with a little bit of flare.
Create your own look using tape, some careful precision painting and a stellar top coat. Opt for high quality polishes to ensure minimal chipping, check out Bobbi Brown’s collection of colours – available at Holt Renfrew.
THE NUDE FACE
The spring air often inspires us to freshen up our makeup routine. A dewy, sun kissed cheek is a must-have this spring.
Get the look by starting with a solid skin care routine. As always, apply SPF daily to maintain skins natural elasticity. To achieve the ultimate nude skin glow, try MAC’s Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation. Stop by either one of our MAC locations for more expert advice on selecting and applying your shade.
We’re taking our obsession of all things golden and gilded into spring with us; eyelids, lips and cheeks all call for a metallic touch.
Find the perfect combination of shades for your skin tone with expert advice from Sephora. We love the Hourglass Moderinst Eyeshadow Pallete for warmer skin tones! The metallic glitz creates the perfect contrast with dark shades of purple.
We are seeing the trend shift from major lashes to major liner! Graphic liner refers to the use of liquid eyeliner to create a bold, almost geometric look. Rock this trend with Kat Von D’s tattoo ink liner, available at Sephora. If you’re new to the look, try different variations of the cateye to ease yourself into the trend. Find inspiration from celebs like; Kat Von D, Fergie, Coco Rocha and Kylie Jenner.
What exactly is Balayge Hair you ask? Balayge is the next ombre. A French word meaning “to sweep or paint”. Lighter highlights are applied free-hand with a brush by sweeping the colour onto the hair allowing for a more natural sun-kissed look. Jessica Biel, Jennifer Lopez and Christy Tiegen are some of the celebs that carry this look flawlessly!
We love this ultra chic hair style for spring 2015, the long bob… or Lob. Lighten your load by chopping off those luscious locks just in time for the summer heat. The length of the lob allows you to have it all – your hair will still be long enough to pull back into a ponytail but will also be a light and breezy down do.
BRIGHT PINK LIP
What’s spring without a little pink? Whether you prefer the soft baby pink or the bold cherry bubble gum pink, we salute you. This year we’re swooning over MAC’s Candy Yum Yum matte lipstick and the Bite Beauty Corvina high pigment lip pencil from Sephora.
