On Beauty guestpost from Lindsay Rogers @bellebellebeau

On beauty, I know nothing, but what I do know is my perfect source of all things from skin care, to the perfect make up and all the prettifying things in between; bellebellebeauty or My Belle Belle as I like to call her. When it comes to beauty, I always go here because Lindsay knows it. FACT.

For Spring Summer she has put together some key looks we must rock…here goes;

Bold Lips

There is no easier way to dress up your face than a bold lip. This spring, hot pink, orange and coral are the “it colors”. YSL just came out with a revolutionary lip formula that I love.  This stuff has the texture and shine of a gloss with the long-wear of a stain. My favorite is Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Glossy Stain in Rouge Gouache. And there is absolutely no way you can go wrong with a classic like NARS Lipstick in Heat Wave.

If you want a sheer wash of color with serious moisture, try Korres Lip Butter in Quince. This hydrating balm just provides a wash of color, but it is makes your lips shiny and healthy. The butters are made with natural oils and extracts. Shea butter and rice wax provide hydration.

Full Brows

Put those tweezers down. Bold brows (are still) in. A prominent brow actually better frames the face. On it’s own, a filled-in, groomed brow can finish the face just as much as a swipe of lipgloss. To get the look, fill in your brows with the Tom Ford Brow Sculptor. It is simply the best. The calligraphy tip allows for precise but thick strokes. I love that the opposite end has a grooming brush. And after months of owning this, I just discovered you can twist the cap counterclockwise to reveal the sharpener. Then, to hold the brows in place, comb through Anastasia Brow Gel in Clear.

Metallic Lids

This is a quick way to channel the Spring runways. Forget contouring, shading and palettes. Just grab a metallic cream shadow like Tom Ford Beauty Cream Color for Eyes in Guilt or Platinum or Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24Hr Eyeshadow in Bold Gold. Apply a wash of platinum, silver or gold to your lid. Follow by a light application of Guerlain Terracotta Khôl Kajal in black and mascara

Vibrant Nails

Don’t be shy about vibrant nails. Nothing goes better with a summer glow. And if you are really feeling bold, mix them together! If brights aren’t your thing, try some of the new metallic shades by Tom Ford
