Spring Is Here- Do You Have the Right Makeup?


Forget heavy foundations and smokey eyes this Spring.  According to local fashion expert and CEO of Joliesse and Las Vegas Fashion Week, Jenifer Strom, this hottest makeup trend this Spring is “natural”.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

“That’s easy for you to say”, I think when Strom, 28, describes how less foundation and eye makeup with a heavier lipstick will keep you on trend this fashion season.  She reassured me that even at 40, I could get the coverage I needed and moisturizer to smooth those (not so) fine lines by using a tinted moisturizer or “BB cream”.

Jenifer suggests using a light BB cream for foundation, like Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($43 Sephora) that hydrates skin and softens fine lines with a sheer hint of colour for a healthy, dewy glow.  Another great BB cream is Garnier BB Cream, suggests Strom, which sells for about $11 at many local retailers including Target, Ulta and Walmart.

Garnier BB Cream

Use Garnier BB Cream with minimal eye makeup and mascara then a “pop” of blush and a big pop of color to the lips.



Our staff picks to get the perfect pop of Spring color is NARS Blush in “Orgasm” (a peachy pink with golden shimmer)…. that name does describe the color, doesn’t it?  We found ours at Ulta.

My personal favorite blush is Coralista by benefit.  It gives me a golden peachy shimmer.   Yes, I got my blush last season, but I think it will do the trick for Spring 2013 as well.  New products by benefit that I can’t wait to try this Spring are Dandenlion Face Brightening Powder and “Coral My World”!

Red is all the craze this Spring to give that big “pop” of color.  Our staff picks for lipstick this Spring include Cover Girls lipstick in Hot.  My personal favorites are Kat Von D in “A Go Go” which is a reddish coral color.
