The beginning of a new season always calls for a refresh, and the easiest way to instantly and inexpensively update is getting back to your basics. So, if you had to pick, what do you consider your most important accessory??? If your thoughts are going straight to your favorite shoes, piece of jewelry or glasses, put on the brakes, shift gears and get way more personal. Your most important accessory really isn't any of those "material" things - it is YOU. Your hair, skin, and nails are with you all day every day no matter the season. That means before you pay attention to any of those other great accessories that really help complete your look, you need to make a detailed analysis of YOU.
Just start from the top! First up is your hair. Wearing the same style for too long can put you in a rut, so check out the newest on trend cuts and hit the salon for an update – even if it’s minor. This spring, your perfect look just might be the wavy lob. It's easy and breezy just like the weather!
Next up is your skin, Take advantage of the pros at makeup counters for skin care and makeup advice or check out YouTube tutorials for a few tips and tricks. A pretty option showing up on spring runways and in beauty magazines is a pink face palette, with the same soft and rosy hues on eyes, cheeks and lips. Remember that a change in season often also necessitates a slight tweak of your cleanser and moisturizing routine. What works in dry, cold air might not be as effective in heat and humidity, and your makeup always looks much better when applied to a perfectly prepped and primed surface!
Moving on, take a close look at your nails. They should be clean and shaped and if time is an issue and you can't do the upkeep, don't be ashamed to go clean and bare. No polish is always better than chipped polish! We really like the new rainbow pastels but a super practical and always appropriate alternative is a great neutral and the newest offerings in mixed neutrals go with everything!
When you tweak the details of your personal appearance to reflect seasonal trends you are off to a fabulous start! Then, once you have YOU in order, it's really the icing on the cake to concentrate on all of the other fun accessories that help keep you on-trend. Hot looks to consider adding to your shopping list right now include colorful eye shielding sunglasses, top handle bags, bucket hats, hair clips and belts with significant buckles.
Spring is a lovely reminder of how beautiful change can truly be. Cheers to taking some time to make it all about YOU!
