Posh Beauty Blog recommends makeup and fragrances for spring 2016
by Carla Snuggs
Now that we’re weeks into spring, have you transitioned from winter makeup to summer spring makeup? If you’re still using the same foundation, lipsticks and fragrances from the winter, don’t fret - Posh Beauty Blog has the latest and most fabulous makeup to help you update your makeup mag!
Mally BeautyShadow Stick Extra
This spring I'm loving a new launch from Mally Beauty, Mally BeautyShadow Stick Extra Eyeshadow by Celebrity Makeup Artist and Founder for Mally Beauty, Mally Roncal. If you love the smudge-proof, transfer-proof, crease-proof, bullet-proof Evercolor Shadow Sticks, these reformulated shadows add MORE hydration making them anti-aging too! You can go for a sheer wash of color, or layer it on to dial up the drama as you get thirty seconds of playtime before the shadow sets. Blur or blend any way you like for a look that stays put until you decide to take it off.
Nudestix is a brand that is new to me and I am enjoying this collection of makeup crayons that creates a fresh-faced look to fit any fashion-forward lifestyle. Nudestix can help you get some of the hottest spring makeup trends such as the magnetic Eye & Nude Face using Nudestix's Magnetic Eye Color while you perfect the no-makeup, makeup look with Nudestix's Concealer Pencil or Sculpting Pencil. Smudge away blemishes and get a long lasting natural look without the use of a brush or a sponge. If your eyes are the windows to your soul, your eyebrows are the frames, so tame unruly brows or make tame brows unruly this season. Use Nudestix's Brow Wax and Eyebrow Stylus Pencil.
Avon True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick
Meet your perfect matte. True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick from Avon is the next generation of matte lip color. Inspired by the shine-free lip trend, this new lipstick is Avon’s first-ever true matte lip color. The formula is packed with intense color and provides a 100% matte look with lasting comfort. Perfect for a refined look with a classic shade like Red Supreme, or a romantic look with soft pink like Pure Pink, Ultra Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick offers sophisticated long-lasting color with weightless comfort.
“A matte lip has never been more on trend,” explains Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen. “However, sometimes with super-pigmented color that’s shine-free, it flakes or feathers throughout the day. With True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick, that’s definitely not the case. The formula glides on velvety smooth with long-term comfortable wear—meaning your lips look as good as they feel all day long.” Visit AVON.com to locate an Avon Representative or to shop online
CLEAN Reserve is a luxury fragrance collection that believes in sustainable beauty. The 9 fragrances are blended with raw ingredients that are ethically harvested and manufactured with the lowest possible carbon footprint, all while giving back to their farmers, tribes and communities to sustain their crops and economies. Posh Beauty Blog recommends CLEAN Reserve Terra Woods for spring. It's an unexpected scent that your inexplicably drawn to. Crisp and zesty notes paired with creaminess and woody base provide a unique contrast. This features Sustainable ingredient Madagascar Vanilla - By choosing to harvest the highest quality vanilla from ECOCERT plantations in Madagascar, CLEAN isn't just ensuring their perfume is infused with rich, deep, and warm aromas. They are funding continued education for farmers and their families by supplying school equipment and computers to foster growth and development.
The spring and summer season means more time in the sun so as my skin tone becomes richer, I usually switch up my foundations and concealers to match. I recently rediscovered Black Opal which was founded over 20 years ago with the mission to create skincare and makeup products specifically for women of color. There are a wide range of concealers (3 options in up to 7 shades per formula) and foundations (six options in up to 14 shades per formula) with a wide range of shades suitable to many women of color. They are also great for beauties on a budget, so if you haven't tried Black Opal in a while, I suggest giving them another go! My favorites are the Flawless Perfecting Concealer and the Black Opal True Color Pore Perfecting Foundation – both go on smoothly, match perfectly and unlike many drugstore foundations, they don't cause my face to break out.
Tyra Banks, super model and super businesswomen recently launched her own cosmetics line and experience, TYRA Beauty. The lip colors are gorgeous, vibrant, hydrating and long-lasting! Recommendations: Tyra's What Lipstick? and Lip Model in What it Takes which has micro-mirror technology!
Chrome Girl is the 8-Free Nail Lacquer I recently raved about. E.J. Johnson teamed up with Chrome Girl to launch an exclusive nail polish called “Jaded”, where 100% of profits benefit NYC’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community! Jaded is a fabulous color for spring, along with How Merlot Can You Go? and Just Peachy.
