I’m sitting here eating a basket full of leftover Godiva Easter bunny chocolate wishing sugar wasn’t pure bliss and trying to block out that my boyfriend keeps reminding me that he wants me to toss my one-piece bathing suits in favor of bikinis (What can I say? Some chocolate is just worth it.). Transitioning into spring from the winter isn’t always easy! While there are countless beauty trends being hailed as “musts” for the season, I’ve rounded up four of the ones that, in my opinion, are the most versatile…
If I can dish one bit of beauty advice, it’s NEVER get your brows tinted. And definitely NEVER get them bleached. About two years ago after getting my hair colored, I asked the colorist at Oscar Blandi to lighten my brows – biggest mistake ever. They turned orange within a few hours, and I’ve been dealing with the repercussions ever since.
A brewing trend thanks to runways and celebrities is ombré eyebrows. Don’t worry; it’s not like the ombré hair trend whereby there’s a clear color fade. It’s way more subtle – and for good reason. As someone who has made the mistake of lightening her brows only to spend YEARS living with the consequences I can’t stress enough how important it is to NEVER, ever lighten your brows via bleach.
NYFW had some crazy looks this season, especially Hood by Air’s un-blended contoured faces (read: clown makeup). One place where we saw beauty that can actually inspire real women was at Theory’s show where La Prairie and makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo led the team.
Brows are tough as evidenced by the fact that I live in NYC where there’s a brow salon every few blocks and yet, more often than not, mine will end up a disaster – even at top salons like Oscar Blandi.
