Even though it seems like it has taken an eternity, the warm breeze of spring has finally found us.
With that, we all switch out our coats and overhaul our closets. In the apothecary world, I love a new regime and freshness in beauty. At space519 we always embrace the healthier side of the industry, with most of our partners being organic, natural and clean, but that does not mean one has to forsake the hottest trends. Here are some of my favorites that you will find at space519.
1. The Angelic Glow
One of the many lessons I have learned from Rose Marie Swift, of RMS fame, is that glowing, dewy skin looks younger, and matte dry skin reads older….
This season that is even more true with the launch of GOOP skincare. Here is is as important prepping the skin as to what you are putting on it. I am a fan of layering GOOP’s Enriching Face Oil with a dab of James Read Day Face Self Tanner as an all over moisture base. Letting that sit for a minute, then layering on GOOP Day Moisturizer with a smudge of Kjaer Weis Foundation, to give you a sheer moment of coverage. Let that dry for a second, than work RMS Luminizer on the cheekbones for that angelic glow. Follow up with a light pink cheek dusting to solidify the look!
2. The Strong Lip
This past season we have seen the resurgence of the statement lip color on the runways. This trend can definitely be seriously taken into daily life. This time you can still get the boldness but in a guilt-free, organic form. Paired with the sun-kissed face from above, I am obsessed with RMS’ new do-everything product, Master Mixer as a highly golden lid color. My favorites are the new SPF15 Kokomo from ILIA Beauty and Kjaer Weis’ Rapture. Both of these are a great way to nail this with the brooding berry tones of the season.
3. Natural Volume Hair
With the beauty industry leaning towards a prettier, natural feeling, the hair world is not far behind. What feels fresh and new is the un-forced trend in hair. Take your natural state, it being curly, wavy, etc. and embrace that element. The key here is to create luxurious, healthy looking hair that has movement, bounce and sheer. Not to sound like Prell commercial, we have been straightening, blowing and singeing our hair for so many seasons, so now it is time to give it a little TLC. Start with de-toxifying your hair with the organic Volume Shampoo & Conditioner from Rahua Beauty. Majeed form Rahua tells us that it takes two weeks for the hair to fully detox and clarify when using his regime. To get that full, bouncy feel, we love David Mallett’s Hair Serum to start and his Spray no.2 Le Volume to finish. You can’t go wrong with these two amazing lines!
4. Everything is coming up Rosy . . .
With the return of pretty, there is embrace of all things girly. Not only did we see this color in collections for spring, but we smelled it in our beauty appointments as well. This time around Rose has a more modern (not your grandmother’s perfume) feel. First, we started to see this in the nail polish world with Jin Soon’s Tea Rose color, which she used in the latest Miu Miu ad campaign. The pretty nail color felt fresh and light on shorter nails. Then we experienced it in the straightforward fragrance of French perfume line, Mollinard’s Rose. Done in a one note fashion, this scent felt new and elegant. For an easier take away option we are always fans of go-to organic fragrance line MCMC’s Kept. Layered with black tea, leather & clove, this roll-on oil is an easy way to see how pretty you can get…..
