Summer Beauty Prep: What’s Hot

Mother Nature seems to be taking her sweet time tossing around the idea of warmer weather in that pasty little head of hers, but April is in fact coming to a close. (Easter is this Sunday! Looks like I’ll be in my Sunday best!)

In a couple of short months we’ll be welcoming summer and wondering how it got to be so blasted hot, where the cool breezes ran off to, etc. Instead of waiting until we’re sweating at the thought of leaving our air conditioned homes and offices, let’s explore summer beauty trends now and prepare to look fabulous!

Hmm. Or maybe funky is a better word for Summer 2011 beauty trends? Maybe both. Funky fabulous. Yep, that covers it.

Nails: I was inspired to start with this topic after eyeing OPIs killer Katy Perry shatter line!So cool! And bold as can be—the epitome of summer 2011. Can’t believe I don’t own Black Shatter yet. I want to layer it over Orly’s Oh Cabana Boy right this moment! And then maybe go tellHubby to clean a pool while I lounge in my matching bathing suit, sip lemonade and watch.

Daytime Natural: Opt for a natural, dewy look during the daytime hours. Even out your skin with some SPF foundation and emphasize your eyes with some lengthening/separating mascara. Highlight your cheekbones with a touch of blush (or highlighting blush!) and use a clear gloss on your lips to give them a natural, full look. Of course, you can get away with punchy pink lips during the day, but go light on the eyes and save the bolder shades for after work.shopbop.com

Hissyfit just sent me the perfect natural-look product to review. It’s called the Face Clockpot and I LOVE it! The kitincludes a highlighter, foundation, highlight powder, contour powder, all over powder and finishing glow powder for a complete flawless natural look. I’ve also been testing their Blending Finger Feather brush, which is (as promised) like an extension of my own finger—makes blending so simple!

Nightlife Bold: Apparently the general consensus here is to go crazy. Let loose your inner wild child! Feel free to load up on heavy eyeliner and funky eyeshadow. The faded smoky eye is a summer night favorite. Oh, and be sure to emphasize those lips in a vibrant red or Shiseido electric pink.

If you’re really feeling the color, grab a wild eyeliner or two. Don’t be shy, now!

It’s going to be a wild summer! How crazy will your makeup get?

For now, shop happy and have a very Springy Easter, girls. Don’t forget Earth Day! Plant a tree or pot a flower; oh, and stop by an Origins counter to trade in your old/empty beauty products for a free cleanser sample!

BONUS TIME!! Just thought I'd pass along the fun facts from a recent beauty survey!

When It Comes to Beauty Products, Women Would Rather
|Go Without Coffee, Chocolate and Yes, Even Sex,
Than Their Favorite Beauty Products

First Annual Spring Survey from L’Bel Highlights Women’s Attitudes on Beauty, Products and Lifestyle – from What Women Can and Can’t Go Without to this Season Must-Haves

According to a recent national survey* commissioned by L’Bel USA, women are willing to sacrifice coffee, chocolate, and even sex for one week rather than their favorite beauty product, and more likely to let an airline security take a pair of beloved shoes and/or jeans, than give up their favorite skincare and/or makeup items.  The findings are just two of many unique insights gathered by the international luxury beauty brand from a survey of more than 1,300 American women age 18 and older.

“Women not only want beauty products that make them feel radiant inside and out, but products that are customized for their skin and lifestyle. It’s no surprise they would rather go without a few of life’s other simple pleasures. Once you find a product you love, that’s affordable and works, you never want to let it go,” said John Krites, L’Bel USA’s beauty expert.

With its parent corporation Belcorp being the 3rd largest skincare company in South America and having over 40 years of beauty experience and success, L’Bel USA commissioned the survey to gain a better understanding of women’s attitudes on beauty and lifestyle, and the products that are top of mind for women this spring. Other findings include:

  • Beauty products play an important role in women’s lives, with the majority reporting that they carry a make-up/skincare related product in their purse regularly. Three-quarters of women (76%) report that they carry a make-up/skincare related product in their purse regularly, with lipstick/lip gloss (63%) topping the list of beauty-related items.
  • The top ranked item that women report is a “must-have” when they go out at night is their lipstick/ lip gloss.  Six in ten (59%) women prefer lip gloss to lotion (17%), fragrance (12%), foundation/concealer (9%) and mascara (6%).
  • Fragrance is the number one item on which women would splurge their paycheck. An estimated 25% of women would use their paycheck to splurge on fragrance. One in ten women says that if they could use their paycheck to splurge on one beauty product, they would choose foundation/concealer (12%) or lotion (10%).

New Beauty Products

“It’s been a long, cold winter. Women want to feel radiant and alive this spring, and what better products to help them do just that, than a fabulous plumping lip gloss while they’re out with their friends, or a fragrance that dares her to imagine all the possibilities made possible by Spring’s arrival,” said Krites.

With fragrance and skincare being among women’s top must haves, L’Bel USA has several new products available, including two new fragrances, Illimitée for women, and 1200° for men, as well as a new renewing and perfecting facial treatment cream, Neuvive Si.

  • Illimitée, the new fragrance for women, is a floral-woody scent laced with a hint of German Iris. From the fragrance house of Firmenich, created by Ilas Ermenidis, its diverse aroma is sweet, velvety, and slightly citric.
  • 1200°C, the new fragrance for men, has a combination of strength and energy that emphasizes the scents power, which derives its name from the heat of lava. From the fragrance house of Firmenich, created by Richard Herpin, the scent is both spicy and smoky.
  • NeuviveSi a wonderful new skincare treatment, uses biosilicium technology to encourage the skin’s cellular renewal cycle, Neuvive Si stimulates the protection of skin renovation, protects the skin giving it a renewed appearance, and eliminates and removes dead cells without irritation.

Much kinder to the waistline and the environment, LUSH’s bath bombs are solid which means they are preservative and packaging free.  LUSH also doesn’t test on the Easter Bunny (or any other animals for that matter) – we just use them as inspiration!

M∙A∙C Jeanius

Is there anything more enduring (besides love and heartbreak) than denim? Jeanius is a celebration of the journey – country cousin to haute couture – the whole world wanted to go on since America made it a national obsession. Since tooth-and-nail workwear jumped the pond in farmer’s overalls to gussy up in the glam of the great Paris couture houses…France may take the credit for creating it in 18th-century Nimes (de Nîmes = DeNim), but bright young American women took it higher! M∙A∙C keeps up with a Jeanius collection of moody blues and indigo ink, the quantum of modern cool, with four new limited-life denimized Eye Shadows, along with NEW limited-life shades of Lipstick, Lipglass, Blush and Biker Blue & Frayed to Order Nail Lacquer. Like the faux-metal “snap” on the Eye Shadow…completely riveting.   


Dermacyte

The changing of the seasons can be a nightmare for your skin. Sometimes, searching for the right products can be exhausting, especially when they all contain the same formulas. If you are hoping to brighten up your complexion and replenish your skin before the strong sun of summer, you might want to consider an idea that may be novel to you: oxygen.

 

Oxygen might not be the first beauty ingredient that pops into your mind when looking for a product, but it should be. Offering a revitalizing solution to your skincare needs, oxygen purifies, moisturizes, and heals skin, restoring youthfulness and radiance. This is something that Oxygen Biotherapeutics has known for years, and with its recently launched products, Dermacyte Oxygen Concentrate and Oxygenating Eye Complex, you can actually harness oxygen’s powers to overcome common skin problems.

DERMACYTE® Oxygen Concentrate

 

DERMACYTE® Oxygenating Eye Complex

 

A multi-beneficial oxygen spot treatment that brings the look of youth to your skin.

Oxycyte technology, the extraordinary skin-oxygenating process attainable with Dermacyte Oxygen Concentrate, revolutionizes oxygen skin care. The Oxygen Concentrate bathes your skin with rich oxygen, smoothing and moistening it while helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines.  Your complexion is instantly brighter and energized. Think of DERMACYTE Oxygen Concentrate as an oxygen bar for your skin.

 

A smooth, delicate treatment to refresh, hydrate and restore the appearance of youth to your eye contour area.

Stress and pollution deplete your skin of oxygen and moisture, especially in the under-eye area, your most delicate and fragile skin, resulting in dark circles, deep lines, and puffiness.

DERMACYTE Oxygenating Eye Complex is a gentle marriage of modern technology and nourishing emollients extracted from avocado essence, oat kernel, sunflower oil, the calming High Ash, a tree indigenous to European forests rich in antioxidants,  Vitamin C and seeds from the Pacific Northwest Meadowfoam plant among other nurturing ingredients.
