February is always an exciting time for color. By now it’s super cold and the dread of winter has dug in its heels. So, it’s around this time that we start to crave color. It’s sort of an emotional pick-me-up….after weeks of grey, slush filled streets – a girl needs a jolt. So here’s a quick how-to on infusing spring colors into your winter current routine.
Play up eyes with a bold hue. Start by ditching your usual black or brown. Instead, reach for a shade with a bit more depth and dimension. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil in Sapphire (212 872 2777) gets the job done. The midnight blue liner is a fresh change of pace. We love that Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil is soft enough for a smudgy, rocker-girl look, yet precise enough to create a fierce feline flick.
Look no further than a bright, punchy lip to lift your mood. Bypass your classic reds and rich Bordeaux’s. Instead, go a bit more girly and amp up the pink. And think slick…a glossier finish will feel lively and new. Try Lancome LIMITED EDITION Lip Lover in Rose Bagatelle (212 872 2740).
A fun new nail color is the quickest route to a winter pick-me-up. Christian Louboutin Beaute Spring Collection Nail Coffret (212 872 8819) offers three mood elevating shades from which to choose – Salonu: An opaque cement white, True Blue: a brilliant periwinkle blue and Hot Chick, a yellow so vivid it looks like sunshine in a bottle.
