Spring is HERE!!!

Spring is all about self expression & creating that healthy, flirty, feminine appearance. It’s the time to bring out the floral dresses, strapped sandals and expose your skin to the sun. Sun kissed skin is the ideal, but with golden tans comes the potential for damage. Over exposure, dehydration, improper care, all of these things can create skin that is dull, skin that appears aged. Skin conditions change with each season; therefore it is very important to update your skin care regime as well as the type of makeup you wear.
Choosing the right skin care is the first step to having radiant skin. To avoid dehydration from sun exposure and heat, cleanse with a hydrating cleanser, using a manual defoliant to stimulate your blood flow and purge your pores. This will reduce dullness in your skin, reintroduce much needed moisture and reduce blemishes. After this cleansing wait a few minutes and moisturize your skin, making sure to moisturize your whole face, especially under your eyes, continuing down your neck. A daily application of a sunscreen should become routine before ever leaving the house. The final touch for luminous, healthy skin begins on the inside. Drink water, it’s a simple step, but one of the most essential to maintaining a healthy body and healthy skin.
With the changing season comes a need for a change in your makeup as well as your skin care. Colors change each season so be sure to pick a foundation that will match your new golden tones. A light foundation that wears well in the heat followed by a translucent powder to set your makeup, even out the skin tone and keep your makeup from running. Water proof mascara is always the right choice, it won’t run underneath your eyes, and it makes your eyes pop.
Choosing eye shadows, lip tones, skin tones can seem daunting, but with proper education, or a personal consultation with a trained cosmetic artist will guide you in the right direction.
