Spring is Nature’s way of saying “Let’s Party!!” ~ Robin Williams

Forget pastels.  This Spring is all about COLOR. 

The glossier the better!

 Brightly colored glossy lips are making an appearance.  Deep fuschias, baby pinks and corals.  (Be sure to pair it will a more natural eye and cheek) Expect to see this trend carry through the summer!

In addition, never ever ever underestimate the power of a good moisturizer to wake up and prep the skin!
