Spring is when all the magic happens.
This season’s makeup and hair trends are all about electric colors, whimsical sparkles, dramatic rouge, sexy braids, and natural hair textures executed with fierce confidence. The 80’s are most definitely back, with all their glitter-filled hype, captivating romance, and heaps of eye-candy jewelry. Our favorite Spring 2017 trends are anything but boring. So break out of your usual makeup routine, work that floral hair gear, or let your natural hair do it’s own thing. It’s time for a change, and we will show you how…
Get ready for a fresh take on looks that kill, and hair that makes heads turn. Colorful gemstones, fresh flowers, and flawless skin are all in. Enjoy these looks whether you’re heading to a festival, dance party, out for a city stroll, dinner plans or a hot date. And remember, this time around, ANYTHING GOES. Be bold, explore your beauty, and enjoy the process.
Embrace romance this season with poetic hair and makeup looks. Let those locks fall loosely in natural textured waves. Sexy and feminine waves created by Junya, using Pai Shau, Biphasic Infusion.
Golden eye-shadows accentuate the beauty of the eyes, as they say, “the eyes are the mirrors of the soul”. Jamie applied NARS eye paint in Iskandar creating these dreamy sensual eyes, which look very eclectic paired with rouge berry-red, or orange-red lip color by MAC
Get this look by using the following products:
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal, MAC lipstick in So Chaud
Jewelry: Rings 18K Gold Blue Topaz ring and silver Amethyst ring with diamonds by Pianegonda.
Rigorous, meticulous braids with fringes at the ends, or sculptured, tight braids are this season’s staples, for day or night. Get them right: part your hair into 4 sections and tightly braid, fixing the look with Pai Shau, Biphasic Infusion. Leave the ends loose to create a fringed effect for a wild, come-hither look. Work a bit of styling infusion or pomade in before braiding to get hair to stay together for this provocative look. Hair products by Pai Shau.

Channel your inner fairy queen this season! Enjoy the sparkling rays of the sun, in all their shades of orange and gold glory. Artsy shadows applied around the eyes, striking rouge lips, and a soft blush accentuate the no-mere-mortal portrayal. Go for big statement jewelry, day or night. Don’t be afraid to mix the most bizarre colors (you’d be surprised how a soupcon of confidence can pull even the most out-there looks together). Embrace all the joy and drama of spring.

GLITTER AND SHINE
Spring brings us the sun, shining, hot, and oh-so desirable. This season, we want everything to have a sexy glow. Try pairing sparkling cat eyes with pale, natural lips for a breath of sensuality. Don’t be afraid to take it to the extreme. High-watt shine feels new, fresh and breathtaking. Apply a touch of glitter to the sides of your eyelids, experiment with different shades. This will create your new favorite statement look.
On eyes: MAC CHromacake in pure white, rick purple, and magenta, Violet Voss glitter in Paige. On lips: MAC lipstick in Kinda Sexy.

Be sure to draw focus to your eyes in the most unexpected ways. Use the colors of the rainbow as your palette. Right now, it’s all about bold contrast eye-shadows applied vigorously on lids, creating a striking effect. Cat eyes are here to stay, and to steal your attention. Don’t hold back, be daring, show off those smoldering irises.

It wouldn’t be spring without a swipe of soft red lipstick. And don’t forget peach, orange and pink. Definitely try a pop of bold color on the mouth against a bare face, it serves to enhance your natural beauty and still look feminine without seeming too calculated. Laid-back and effortless makeup applied by Jamie using Lime Crime Lip Velvetine in Rustic.
