LUX Beauty Boutique is a beautiful local shop overflowing with top beauty products and has quickly become the go-to spot for local and visiting cosmetic junkies alike! You’ll find products you didn’t even know your beauty routine needed, but will be all the better because of them. Natasha Ross and Danielle Decruyper — two of the in-store beauty experts and makeup artists — share their picks for keeping your routine fresh for spring:
What trends are we seeing in nail colours for spring?
Pastels are really in this spring, in all hues. It is less about the sparkles and nail art and more about pure color in beautiful tones. Deborah Lippmann just released their Spring Reveries collection, which is filled with gorgeous tones that exude the feeling of springtime. My favorite is La Vie en Rose, it’s a pale pink tone with a light shimmer that looks amazing in the sunlight. Layering tones is also really big this spring. Try a coat of a sheer pastel nail lacquer on top of a more vibrant colour you already have — the results are gorgeous.
What about makeup trends for the season?
Spring is all about freshness and renewal, and this really reflects in the makeup for the season. Light, sheer tones are going to win and flatter everyone. Plus they are really low maintenance. Luminizers and cream blushes create a dewy finish, and lip color is moving away from matte and more into light and sheer finishes. Paul & Joe’s new lip colors, especially Poppy and Peony, which are citrus orange sheer and bright pink sheer finishes, give your natural look a little somethin’ extra.
Can you recommend a great spring fragrance?
How can spring not be about floral fragrances? The key to this season is that scents are being mixed, matched and blended to create a full garden of notes. MCMC perfume oils are very outdoorsy and the oils blend together nicely to create personalized scents. Library of Flowers also recently released mini perfume sets that encourage you to be adventurous and create new fresh scent libraries.
