Beauty Editor’s Note:

A sure sign of spring for me is when the clocks spring forward and we have more sunlight. I get so excited because I know spring is finally here! This season treat yourself to something new and explore the possibilities. Have a great spring! Dana

Gloss is Boss

In the fall lipstick made a comeback. Now that spring has arrived, gloss is the new Queen. It reminds me of the 90s when lip gloss was everywhere at one point.

I’ve mentioned in an earlier post that I love Burt’s Bees lip balms, I also like their lip glosses. It has a nice feel on my lips without feeling sticky or tacky. A little goes a long way and I apply it with a lip brush to get an even coating. I also blot my lips with a tissue after application.

If you want to avoid the goopiness of gloss, just apply it to the center of your bottom lip and press your lips together to disperse the color. If you are feeling creative make your own lip gloss. It will save you money and is a great project to do with your friends or family. There are plenty of DIY recipes out there so pick one and have fun!

Hair Pins

From sleek and straight to voluminous blowouts you can try something new for spring. If you want a smooth sleek look, when using your blow dryer get a comb attachment when you blow dry your hair. But first, make sure you get the tangles out of your hair. Make sure you use the appropriate heat protecting and smoothing products If you are doing it yourself.

For a great blowout, use a nylon and boar bristle round brush. When I would use this method on myself, it kept  the volume in my hair without making it look flat. In addition, using a heated round brush will work just as well and it might be even easier for you.

I’m so glad hair accessories are coming back in a big way. Who doesn’t love a good scrunchie? I wore scrunchies a lot in college.  I would put the scrunchie around my bun  to give it a decorative look that matched my outfit.  Now I just stick with black and navy with a little gray. 

Hair clips are back as well, from butterfly clips to headbands. Pick out something fun and glittery to go with your spring wardrobe. Please remember to wash your cloth headbands and scrunchies as they get dirty too.

Inside the Nail Files

I believe there is something for everyone when it comes to the trends in nails this spring season. Soft pastel polishes would make for a twist on a French manicure for example. A powder blue shade as your base color with white tips.

Neutral shapes are big and are always classic. Nail embellishments such as rhinestones and chains are popping up on nails. You can find these types of items at a craft store so you can express yourself for those who love to shine with their nails!
