Spring has Sprung and it’s time to update your makeup!


When the leaves start to turn green, and the tulips start to pop up, I know it’s time to switch from the deep colors of Fall and Winter to the fun, bright colors of Spring. It just feels good to buy a new pink lipgloss or a shimmery blush. Of course, I went to the makeup experts at Aillea Beauty to find out what’s new for Summer and here is what they told me:

Transitioning to Spring Makeup Colors – 
Fresh off the runway – there are a few hip trends that will help you transition to spring:
  • Rose Gold is the color of the moment. Items like RMS new Master Mixer is a rose gold wonder that can act as a blush/highlighter.  You can also mix it with any lip or shadow color to give it a pop and lighten winter’s darker colors to brighter spring shades.
  • Spring is all about a fresh face.  The key to that is dewy/healthy skin.
    • Use cream products vs. powders.  Ilia multi sticks and illuminators are great for the spring trends.
    • Keep your skin hydrated.  Even (especially) if you are trying to treat a breakout.  Drying out your skin can irritate it more and cause additional breakouts.  Instead, keep your skin hydrated and balanced with some amazing Suki facial oils.
  • Pinks and Coral shadows and shimmer eyes.
    • pinks, corals and light copper colors were all over the runways for spring 2016. They are a great pop to a natural look.  I recommend checking out Pink Champagne from Lily Lolo!
