The key to beauty is knowing when to take on a trend, and when to leave it on the runway:
LEAVE IT -- The spring runway's "bare face" was simply gorgeous! We are all for fresh faces glowing with bronze skin and nude shades. But no mascara? No way. That simply doesn't translate well on street...or even the beach. Makeup artists reveal that eyes simply don't pop without mascara; even one coat of waterproof can help delicate lashes stand out. And don't forget an eyelash curler! It takes just one squeeze to boast uplifted fringe.
LOVE IT -- Finally, the antidote to maximal dressing is here! Minimalist looks were prominent on the runways, and are key for spring/summer 2013. Chic black and white looks appeared casual (by Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, and 3.1 Philip Lim) and glam (Oscar de la Renta, Valentino). Prada is jumping onto the trend with a summer capsule collection of "breezy patterned dresses and accessories in the graphic color combination" now in stores. No matter what your style, less is more this season!
LOVE IT -- While the thrill of a new scent is fantastic, we clamor for classic summer fragrances that take us back to summers' past.
