Spring Grunge Fashion

Another spring trend is definitely, is spring grunge fashion.

After seeing this trend at the Neiman Marcus spring trend show I couldn’t help but fall in love with it. This trend is easy because you can mix and match the things that are already in your closet. Though I totally understand that grunge trends can be extremely scary if you don’t do them right. Mix your leather and plaid with a fun braid or something pink is the perfect way to transition into this look. One thing to keep in mind, when styling a grunge outfit, is only incorporate elements into the entire outfit.

However, I also chose to compliment the outfit with a pair of wedged heels and a fun girly braid. The combination of these two drastically different styles allow for a seamless outfit. Mixing and matching are going to be your best friends in this situation. for Every grunge piece should be complimented with a completely opposite trend. What pieces would you mix and match to make a spring grunge outfit?

Clarins Makeup Spring 2014

Ya for spring and an extra Yeah for spring makeup. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet up with Clarins at Nordstrom. I must say, this is a cosmetic and skincare line that I haven’t given much attention to in the past. However, I am loving so many of their products.

Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base

A moisturizing complexion base that instantly adds radiance and unifies the complexion. Provides protection from pollution and free radicals.

Clarins’ exclusive High-Lumitech complex illuminates skin and corrects imperfections. Katafray extracts calms, soothes, and hydrates.

Both of these radiance boosters are absolutely amazing. I have used them countless times over the past few weeks and they are seriously amazing.

Multi-Blush Cream Blush

A smooth, multitasking cream-to-powder blush that delivers a flush of natural-looking colour. Can also be used on the lips.

Clarins Ligh Optimizing complex adds radiance and illuminates the cheekbones.

Of all four of these products, this is my favorite. I have probably used it the most and it also truly lives up to the name of cream-to-powder blush.

Thank goodness it is finally getting warmer. Don’t get me wrong, I love it being cold, but it is nice when I can leave the house in only a sweatshirt. It is now the season of floral and fun pastels. However, you don’t have to be wearing pastels to dress for spring. Light fabrics and spring inspired prints will help you transition out of Winter and into Spring. This will give you the perfect feminine spring look.
