Spring Trend: Honeysuckle

BY MAKEUP ARTIST AND KEEP ME BLUSHING BLOGGER SAMANTHA MICHELLE

Smashbox Cosmetics

We’re in denial about any shreds of winter left. Full speed to spring, please. Bright colors! Lighter fabrics! We even spotted a pair of bright pink wedges in our midst today.

With Smashbox Cosmetics on our horizon, we turned to Keep Me Blushing blogger, Samantha Michelle, to enlighten us on the color of 2011: sweet, pretty honeysuckle – a mouth-watering, reddish-pink hue. Check out her tips, then let us know if you’ll be up for a little (or a lot) for spring.

I love the color of 2011. It’s happy, warm, and beautiful, and looks great on just about anyone. It’s easy to add this color into your wardrobe and accessories, but don’t forget your makeup bag! Some of you may think this honeysuckle is too bright to wear on your face, but when done correctly it looks so great – especially for spring/summer.

Rue La La: We hear there’s this special, secret wax…  
Cindy: completely bare Ouch-Less Wax – it was developed to grab onto the hair follicle and not the skin. The wax has positive sensory recollection, allowing you to disengage from the waxing experience and indulge in a personal memory evoked by the fragrance of the wax.

The Crib Sheet: Better Skin, Head to Toe

BY DR. MICHELLE COPELAND

Dr. Michelle Copeland Skin Care

Smooth, soft skin is healthy skin. And it’s very achievable.

Cover your head. Avoid excessive UV exposure – use Daily Moisturizer with SPF 20 for protection and Sunless Tanning Bronzer for a healthy glow.

Clean your face at least once a day. But bars of soap are too harsh no matter what the moisturizing claims. Surfactants, ingredients that produce foam in liquid products like shampoo and soap, are extremely drying. Choose non-foaming cleansers that don’t strip the top layer of oil from the skin.
