Spring Mark Makers

The hottest makeup trends for spring

Fashion trends for spring showed us a variety of fashion options; from bright, bold, statement making prints and colors, to anything but-boring beige, khaki and nude hues. Makeup trends are following suit with similar trends. Here are some of the hottest makeup looks to try this season.

Vivid Cheeks
This season blush wasn’t used just to create a healthy glow on the runway, it was meant to be noticed. Bright pink and rose blush tones were swept from the apples of the cheeks to the upper cheek bones, reminiscent of an 80s high school style.

Loud Lips
Similar to bright cheeks, lips will be lively and bright this season. Models wore creamy, matte lipsticks in saturated hues like fuchsia, orange, purple, red and even  used contrasting shades to color-block the top and bottom lip. This season you can give your nude gloss a break and enjoy the colors.

Glossy Glow
Another hot trend was glowing skin thanks to pearlized highlighters, shimmer and moisture balms. Highlighter was added to the upper cheekbones, forehead, temples and inner corners of the eyes for an added shine.

Eye Catchers
Eye makeup this spring is all about adding a pop of color; meaning electric blue, green, yellow, pink or even orange. Models were seen with bright hues swept across the entire lid and just below the eyebrows. You can make this look yours by adding a thin swipe of color to your upper or lower lash line.

Time Turning Tresses

The best hairstyles to help you look younger

In the crusade against aging, there is a lot of focus on skin care and makeup, but did you know that the right hairstyles can turn back the clock as well? Here are some of the best hairstyles to make you look (and feel) younger!

Healthy Start
Just like good skin care, taking care of your tresses is important. Youthful hair is shiny and moisturized, so use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner on a regular basis. Once a week, give yourself a scalp massage and follow it up with a deep conditioner to give your hair a healthy boost. Regular trims also help prevent split ends and keep your hair from looking damaged. For shiny locks, apply a nourishing hair oil before heat styling and finish with a shine serum.

Bang It Out
Soft, gentle bangs are excellent to hide forehead wrinkles and other imperfections. Side-swept bangs are another option if you’re not too sure about fully committing. Try to avoid harsh, blunt straight-edged bangs, which can have the opposite effect and make you look older and harsh.

Layer It Up
One of the best styles for women with mid-length to long hair is a relaxed, long layered cut. The layers give your hair movement, volume and energy. Ask your stylist for face-framing layers that start at your chin to maintain length without being thin or stringy. If you have short hair, choppy layers throughout will make your hair look thicker and more playful. Style short layers with a pomade or wax to create an edgy, youthful texture.

Keep It Light
No matter what your hair color or skin tone, face framing highlights can add a gorgeous glow around your face, making it look brighter. Highlights can also draw attention to your cheekbones and eyes, giving your face a young, full appearance.

Matte About Spring

Best colors for the trend of the season

One of the hottest lip trends this spring is a luxurious, matte lip. While matte lipstick might conjure images of a dry, flaky pout, the newest formulas, like JAFRA’s Full Coverage Matte Lipsticks deliver bold, opaque color while keeping your lips hydrated.  One of the most compelling reasons to try a matte lip is the staying power. This look really lasts! Matte lipsticks in the right formula can give you smoochable lips and true-to-tube color that lasts all day. Matte lips are sophisticated, glamourous and luxurious, and look just as fabulous in natural nude tones as they do bold, bright colors. Try these shades on for size to get you in the mood for spring.

Haute Pink
This spring a bright, fuchsia hue is joining the conversation. Wear it with denim and a t-shirt or on a sexy night out on the town! A great one to try is JAFRA’s Full Coverage Matte Lipstick in Flirt; a glamourous, creamy pink that makes a statement without being overbearing.

Citrus Chic
Try a matte orange lip and be playful and on point at the same time! This isn’t an electric dayglow kind of orange we’re talking about, these hues are far more wearable. Shades can range from coral tones, like JAFRA’s Full Coverage Matte Lipstick in Sunset Coral, to an earthy orange, such as JAFRA’s Full Coverage Matte Lipstick in Crush.

Berry Browns
Rich, dreamy matte brown lips look modern and fresh and they’re in for this spring. From camel colored cashmeres to berry browns like JAFRA’s Full Coverage Matte Lipstick in Love Affair, you’re lips are going to look subtly sophisticated and oh-so-kissable!

Sneezy Chic

Don’t Let Allergy Season Wreck Your Good Looks

The itchy red eyes, irritated nose, dry skin and overall puffiness that can result from seasonal allergies are all tough beauty challenges. Yet, they can be managed and camouflaged successfully with hydrating beauty products, color correcting, a few waterproof makeup products and some application tweaks.

The Prep
When your face has been attacked by allergies, switch to a gentle hydrating cleanser. Harsher soaps can leave skin even more irritated. JAFRA Advanced Dynamics Soothing Cleanser is formulated to minimize redness.

If you look puffy, put a clean, damp washcloth in the freezer until it’s very cold. Then, apply it to your face like a mask, making sure it makes contact with any particularly swollen areas, like underneath your eyes.

Allergy medications may cause facial skin to appear dry, as does the constant use of tissues. Before applying makeup, use a moisturizer and concentrate on the dry or flaky areas, like around your nose. Allow the moisturizer to dry and absorb into your skin before applying the rest of your makeup. You may have to dab on extra moisture here and there to get a smooth finish. Finish with eye drops to combat redness.

The Cover Up
Dark eyelids and under eye circles, as well as redness around the nose can be masked with a color correcting concealer. Apply it  before your foundation. To mask dark eye areas, dab on a yellow tinted concealer where necessary. To hide irritated red skin, go with a green concealer. JAFRA Imperfection Corrector contains both of these concealer shades. Next, even out your entire complexion with foundation or use a skin-toned concealer over only the affected areas and blend.

You can also line the inner rim of your lower eyelid with an eye pencil that matches your skin tone to reduce the look of redness.

Do’s and Don’ts
Waterproof eye makeup is a definite “Do” during allergy season, but for some, even waterproof mascara may not be the best lash enhancing solution because of eye sensitivity and watering. Instead, make lashes appear fuller by applying waterproof liner as close to your lash line as possible and then following up with an eyelash curler.

If your lips are chapped, avoid matte lipsticks that may dry your pout out even more. A hydrating lip color or a simple tinted lip balm are going to be your best bets for bringing your lips back to life. JAFRA Moisture Rich Lipstick hydrates and conditions in nine gorgeous colors.
