Guest Post: Spring Beauty Trends

Have you ever had a moment when you meet someone and you feel an instant connection with them????  Well, I had that moment when I met Lindsay who writes the fabulous Belle Belle beauty blog.  In addition to her beauty blog, she also dabbles in fashion on her blog Su-perb which focuses on casual/wearable style.  It never fails that I always find inspiration from one of Lindsay’s blogs.  With all this fabulousness, I was beyond thrilled when Lindsay agreed to do a guest post on Bolder featuring some of the top spring beauty trends.  Check out the fab trends and also stop by her blogs.  Thx Lindsay!

 Bold Lips

A pop of color on the lips isn’t just for winter. Pull out your pinks, oranges and fuchsias for a springy, fresh look. If you are just easing into bold lips, there are loads of sheer options so you too can rock this trend.

YSL just came out with a revolutionary lip formula that I love.  This stuff has the texture and shine of a gloss with the long-wear of a stain. My favorite is Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Glossy Stain in Rouge Gouache. And there is absolutely no way you can go wrong with a classic like NARS Lipstick in Heat Wave.

Full Brows

Put those tweezers down. Bold brows (are still) in. A prominent brow actually better frames the face. On it’s own, a filled-in, groomed brow can finish the face just as much as a swipe of lipgloss.

To get the look, fill in your brows with Le Metier de Beaute Brow Bound Eyebrow Pencil. It is dual ended with a brush at one end. Use this to comb out the brow hairs first. Then use it after to blend the gel-like formula. Then, to hold the brows in place, comb through Anastasia Brow Gel in Clear.

Metallic Lids

This sounds like a daunting trend to try, but couldn’t be easier! Forget shading, layering and different brushes. Just apply a wash of platinum, silver or gold to your lid. I like cream shadow for this look. Just use your finger. If you are up for a splurge, Tom Ford Beauty Cream Color for Eyes in Guilt or Platinum. For a drugstore option, try Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24Hr Eyeshadow in Bold Gold.

Vibrant Nails

Channel your inner tween and pick up a bottle of bright polish. Don’t be afraid to mix them together, with one accent nail pink while the rest are green. I am swooning over the new Thakoon for NARS Nail Collection.
