Amy Says:Spring may be here, but that certainly does not mean that
mother nature knows it! With changing temperatures from day to day, this may be
the most difficult time of the year to get dressed. Even for a seasoned stylist
like me, it can get really annoying…. So why not have some tried and true
looks that will always keep you stylish and weather proof!?!
Cameron Diaz has done a fabulous job of rocking a look that
can go anywhere from sixty to eighty degrees. It is all about the layering
folks! Her light spring scarf and chic blazer make this a realistic outfit for
the vast range of temperatures that this time of year can bestow upon us.
Nothing about this outfit is too far off range that any person could feel
comfortable in it. Truthfully, look at the foundation of the ensemble: Jeans
and a t-shirt. Seriously folks, that is it! She punches up the look and makes
it appropriate for spring by adding in pops of color. The purple scarf and
yellow flats make the basics of the outfit really sing. The simplicity of her
bobbles, her necklace and layered bracelets, keep the look fun and flirty.By
piling on or peeling off any of these sassy layers, you to can weather the
storm of mother natures ups and downs!
Lo Says:As we throw off our socks, hats and
gloves it can be a little frightening to see what we have had covered
up for the last six months! Fear not, as I have a few simple tricks to
help transition to warmer weather.
It can be frightening to bare your limbs after a long winter
so one of my tricks is to use Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer. This is a
great multi-tasking product which hydrates your skin and gives you a little
glow. We don’t want a “fake tan” we just want to take the glare off!
The subtle self tanner will warm up your skin gradually and is great for
dry skin. Don’t forget to step up you SPF now that the sun is out – you will
thank me in a few years!
Time for cut and color ladies! Nothing puts a spring in your
step like a fresh cut and why not add some subtle highlights or color those
pesky grays. Think fresh, not fake.
Don’t you dare bare your toes in flip flops without a little
spring pedicure. A fabulous pedicure can lift your spirits and make your
skin tone look gorgeous. I always wear a red tone, but I also love a great
pink, coral or French manicure. Heck, go with blue as long as you add a
little pep in your step.
Lips and Cheeks
As you stroll through the department store every sales
person is trying to sell you the new spring colors! Guess what, you
probably already have them because they are basically the same as last year’s
spring colors! Your neutral eye shadows and eyeliners can carry you
through every season, but you want to change up your cheek and lip color.
Spring colors are cooler in tone and tend to be sheerer than winter makeup.
Take a clue from the pinks and purples that we wear for spring clothing.
The colors may look too bright but because they are sheer, they can look
more like your natural pigment than the duller looking colors.
