Spring Beauty Trends at Beauty Collection
It can be daunting when it comes to choosing beauty products. Thanks to the leading makeup artist at Beauty Collection at Corona del Mar Plaza, we were steered in the right direction on what’s out there. Here’s your tip sheet:
When it comes to foundation, the trend is soft and light with a dewy finish and less powder. Colors are soft too, with a lot of neutrals; bronzers are big; soft nails in pastels; liquid liner is hot for eyes; more pinks for lips, or you can get bold and daring with hot red and orange.
Here are some great products at Beauty Collection that will get you on the right track for the spring.
Hydrating powders and foundations
By Terry: Founder. Terry de Gunzbur, formerly the creative director for YSL Beauté broke out on her own and makes a must-have line. She’s known for using rose water extracts in her products that have amazing skin care benefits, and her hydrating powders and sheer coverage foundations are some of the best. Vincent Longo is known for its Liquid Canvas dew finish foundation that’s also waterproof.
Lipsticks and bronzers
Jane Iredale. Her mineral makeup line also nurtures your skin. For spring, try the her new reformulated lipsticks and contour your cheeks with bronzer, another must for spring. And, Lorac also makes an incredible TANtalizer body bronzer for summer.
Gorgeous’ liners go on very nicely; and Stila makes the top selling liquid liner.
The trend is to stay away from waterproof mascaras, turns out they are drying. Most of the big lines stopped making them, so now a waterproof top coat is all the rage. NeuLash, is a lash serum that makes your lashes grow without the side effects.
BB and CC Creams
These tinted moisturizers on steroids just went extreme with the CC Cream such as the one by Gorgeous; it’s more than a tinted moisturizer, it offers more moisture benefits. The Jane Iredale BB Cream is wonderful for its coverage and mineral base.
The oil people can’t stop talking about
Rodin Face Oil is a great moisturizer that absorbs into the skin and made from a blend of 11 essential oils.
