BEAUTY: It's March!

It's Spring Time
And I'm MATTE bout You!

When we think of spring we usually think of flowy hairglossy skin and shiny lips but this year we have an unexpected trend of  more refined and polish looks. The modern Matte finish is modest and minimalist, but far from boring. 

I can't help but think of the 1920s, the renaissance of the beauty culture, rouge, lipcolours, eyeshadows and powders.  I picture a scene from the Great Gasby as Daisy met Nick for tea.  
Full eyebrows framing the face, her smooth velvet complexion, skin soft and feminine, well sculpted cheeks and lips. Tres Romantic!


Using a satin finish foundation lends to a more youthful airbrushed finish


The neutral tones of eyeshadows and contour offer a more balanced palette so features appear more refined especially  those of us with stronger facial features.

Even though we can still make a statement by using Vivid unique lip colours, a matte finish gives higher pigment payoff than a gloss.

Because your lip colour gives zero hydration Use a moisturizing lip balm to prep the lips, add a drop of concealer then some powder to set.

A lip stain also does the trick and can go from a more sheer coverage or can be built up for a bolder look.

Fluffly hair can be acheived with a dry shampoo or volumising powder/ spray taking some off some of the  excessive sheen, generated by natural oils from our hair.

Also use your favorite nail lacquers but instead apply a coat of Mattifying top coat.
