Hottest Beauty & Hair Trends for Spring 2014
After a brutal winter, there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. The weather is warming up, which means Spring is finally here!Warm temperatures calls for colorful dresses, fun shorts, and bright accessories. And to complement your new fashion, you will need to update your beauty, skincare, and hair routine as well. Here are the hottest beauty and hair trend for Spring 2014:
Sleek & Straight Hair
After voluminous and curly hair was all the rage, sleek and straight hair will be making a comeback. This spring, hair will be all about simplicity and sophistication. While straight hair may seem like a lot of work, it is actually a very simple look to achieve. All you need is a straightening iron, like the TI Luminous Iron, and a mousse or gel to keep the flyaways in place, such as the Finesse Extra Control Mousse.
Radiant Orchid Nails
While corals were everywhere in 2013, the hues of 2014 are purples. The Pantone 2014 Color is Radiant Orchid, a beautiful shade of lavender. Purples will be a huge trend in makeup and beauty for 2014. If you don’t like the idea of wearing purple eyeshadow, you can easily incorporate it into your look through nail polish. OPI’s Lucky Lavender is very close to radiant orchid. It’s the perfect Spring nail polish shade.
Dewy & Glowing Skin
Dewy and glowing skin is a trend all year round but especially in the Spring time. While dewy skin can be easily achieved through the makeup, the easiest and most natural way to get the look is through effective skin care. If you have the right skin care regimen, your skin will glow from the inside out – no makeup needed, which is great since makeup is not comfortable to wear in warm weather. Start with a light moisturizer, like the Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15. In the nighttime, remember to fully remove all makeup and use a toner, like the Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner, to get rid of any excess dirt or gunk.
Light & Citrus Scents
A popular scent for winter is vanilla and musk. But once we get into Spring, it’s all about light, citrus scents. Instead of a perfume, which can feel and smell too heavy, use a light body spray, like the Dolce & Gobanna Light Blue For Women.
With the warmer weather, you will be heading out to more events and parties. The look of full lashes is always a great addition to any outfit. However, it can be hard to achieve without false lashes. While the look is great, false lashes are a hassle to put on an take off. Instead, use a mascara that is specifically formulated to give your lashes extra volume, like the CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion Mascara. You will get the same look without all the extra work.
