Ah Spring. Longer days, warm weather…and an excuse to stock up on a slew of new nail colors. This season is all about nude and taupe nails. While we’re definitely on team nude and agree they’re great for a more natural look — you’ve gotta mix it up with bolder, brighter hues. Right? Thank goodness oranges, purples and even metallics are hot this season too.

Spoil your nails with this season’s must-have shades:

As beauty girls, it’s easy to get caught up in the new, and accidentally lose sight of old faves.

The upside to this is stumbling across these forgotten loves while rifling through our overpacked makeup cases and beauty drawers— it’s like discovering them for the first time all over again.

Smashbox’s Anti-Shine debuted in 2000, and is a long lasting, gel to powder mattifier meant to reduce shine and keep oil at bay all day, even under the hot studio lights it was created to withstand.
05861596802.jpgWhile the product is meant to be used both under foundation and as a touch up throughout the day, we find the best trick is to apply makeup normally, squeeze a small amount onto fingertips, and gently pat onto problem areas OVER makeup. Those of us without oily skin still love this product for the matte, flawless finish. A total winner in our book.

Now that we’ve rediscovered it, we promise to never let it go again…if we can help it.

$27, Sephora.
We’re perpetually on the hunt for the perfect highlighter and never seem to find it— this little highlighter is too glittery, this little highlighter is too greasy, and this little highlighter has us streaking all the way home. What’s a girl to do?

Enter Vapour Organic Beauty— their new Halo Body Spotlight imparts a luminous, lit-from-within glow that looks natural, and more importantly, doesn’t leave glitter bomb fallout on our cheeks. It’s the perfect shimmer to counteract dull, lifeless winter skin, and can be used on the face, shoulders, arms, décolletage.. the possibilities are endless.

Halo also delivers potent anti-oxidants into the skin to heal and protect it against environmental elements and pollutants.  It’s made with the anti-inflammatory Frankincense, moisturizing Lotus Flower and Tulsi, an ancient healing herb, and is 70% organic.

Added bonus? The packaging is so pretty: a steel blue-gray shimmer… and it smells awesome too! Sort of a light, fruity smell that makes us want to bite it…but we won’t. ;)

Halo comes in one universal shade, Moonlight, suitable for all ages and skin tones.

Senna Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer has taken the market by storm. The multi-tasking primer neutralizes eyelid tone, provides a smooth canvas for color, and keeps shadow vibrant all day. The added benefit of hydrolized hybiscus extract keeps eyes looking young by warding off fine lines. We tried it under shadow during the 12 hours days we’ve been keeping at Fashion Week, and it seriously gives a certain purple-bottled potion a run for it’s money.

Love Spell Refreshing Body Mist, from VS’s Secret Garden Collection, is a sweet and fruity body spray that leaves skin lightly scented with notes of Cherry Blossom, Peach and White Jasmine, moisturized with Aloe Vera and calm thanks to the infusinon of Chamomile. Though quite sweet in smell, we find a couple of sprays of this is just the right amount of lush sweetness to keep our mood positive and carry us through the day. $9, victoriassecret.com
