SPRING has finally arrived and it's my favorite season in the beauty world. It's when we see the biggest releases of new products as well as new style trends that will take us through the year.

Without a doubt this seasons biggest makeup trend is COLOR... it is literally everywhere! Makeup brands are releasing candy-colored eye shadow palettes, neon lipstick shades, and bold blush hues, that make getting ready totally fun and experimental.

In fact, this is the most color I have seen in my entire career! I love it, and I hope you do too.

So to dive in- here's what you should know; [video here]

Rainbow Colored Shadow: Try playing around with adding water to your shadow brushes before dipping into your shadows. This creates more of a watercolor situation where application is easier and we can easily blend more than one color on the lid. Fav rainbow palette: ProFusion Festival Palette

Neon Lips: Keep the rest of the face simple and clean, but then add a BIG bang with a neon lip color. Opt for a super pigmented version like this one: Wet n Wild Liquid Catsuit

Orange Blush: This one is a great option to ease into bold colors... simply swap out your pink tones for a bright coral or toasty orange. It may seem too bold, but with a light hand this color really works on all skin tones and gives a gorgeous warm-weather hue to the cheeks.

On the Hair side of things two major trends make a big comeback, and they are in a word; classic.

Sleek, shiny, flat ironed hair is nudging out the beachy waves we've been wearing over the last 5-6 years. A shiny glass- like finish is the goal, and that can be achieved with the help of some sleeking products like these: Garnier Sleek Shot & Iron Spray

The classic blunt BOB never really goes out of style, but lately it seems like every celebrity under the sun is making a big chop. The great thing about this cut is that it is age appropriate across the generations, and is very flattering on all face shapes. Avoid this cut if your hair is overly thick or textured however, and opt for a longer LOB version instead.
