Trendspotting: Spring Beauty 2018

With warmer temperatures in Chicago and blooms in full swing, I am feeling all of the spring vibes! So, I figured what better way to welcome the season than with a rundown of some of the hottest trends? Keep reading below to see what they are, and which products I prefer for each!

Hi-Def Lip // Lip color is a fun thing to play when you have a tan in the spring or summer! Add a statement to your outfit with a lip that’s blotted down, but pigmented in color. Velvety reds and saturated pinks attract the most attention! One formula I ADORE is that of Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Lipsticks. It’s creamy feeling, but wears matte and looks gorgeous. Fresh Beauty also makes these Tinted Lip Treatments with SPF 15 (a serious plus for that sun). One lippie I’m dying to try is the NARS Velvet Lip Glide. All about subtle formulas, but bold colors.

Simple Hairstyles // Sometimes less is more. Just go back to the basics! Plenty of last fall’s runway shows featured models with high-shine hair, deep side parts and loose waves. The best way to achieve the look is with a great shampoo/conditioner set (I prefer VIRTUE’s Recovery and Smooth lines. I swear nothing makes my hair shinier), a good curling iron (hello, T3 Micro Whirl Trio!) and a good night’s sleep. I find I get the best loose, loose waves when I sleep on my curls with my slip Silk Pillowcase. In a pinch? Brush or comb through them.

Luminous Skin // This is one trend I can SERIOUSLY get behind. I love when your makeup looks dewy and lit from within versus an overly highlighted cake face. You know? The best glowy look starts with your prep, so try using a primer or moisturizer like First Aid Beauty’s Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer or MAC’s Strobe Cream. Concealer, too, can reflect light well, including YSL’s Touche Eclate or bareMinerals’ Stroke of Light Eye Brightener. Lately, I’ve been lovely Make Up For Ever’s Ultra HD Soft Light on my cheekbones for a highlight that looks like it’s part of my skin. Apply it with your fingertips for the most natural finish!
