PondsMakeupArtist_NiloHaq

Spring is a great way to bring new colors into your makeup wardrobe. This spring brings together some bright, bold, and fun trends. Make up Artist & Brand Ambassador for Pond’s Arabia, Nilo Haq, put together this list of the hottest trends of the season. From orange lips, bushy eyebrows and white eyeliner there is something different for everyone to try!

orange lips
Trend #1: Bright Orange Lips

Orange lips have been a popular color during the warm weather for quite some time. Take this trend up a notch by going bolder and brighter than ever! It’s a great pop of color for the spring/summer as compared to the usual red lip.

Glowing Skin

Trend #2: Glowing Skin

This spring bring on the glow! Everyone loves healthy, glowing skin. Try the trend by mixing a bit of Pond’s Gold Radiance Day Cream into your foundation for a natural yet glowing complexion. For added shine, apply a powder highlighter on the cheekbones. You’ll be getting compliments all day!

Pops of Blue

Trend #3: Pops of Blue

Make your eyes a notable statement with bright blue eye shadow on the eyelids. Play with the trend to suit your personality by even placing pops of blue shadow under the eye or even bold blue liquid eyeliner paired with heavy mascara.

White Liner

Trend #4: White Eyeliner

White was a happening color this past winter and continues into spring 2014. Dare to wear something different by adding some white to your makeup! Try replacing your usual black eyeliner with white! It’s a fun way to change up your look without being too drastic. Complete your look by pairing it with a hot pink lip color!

Bushy

Trend #5: Bushy Brows

Overly shaped and even arched eyebrows are a trend of the past. This season it’s all about bushy brows. Bushy brows may not be for everyone, so instead change up the shape of your brow by keeping them square.

Orchid

Trend #6: Orchid

Radiant orchid is the color of the year for 2014! You’ll be seeing it from clothes to bags to coats. Adding orchid into your makeup bag is a must! Try the trend by applying some orchid eye shadow to your eyelids or a beautiful orchid shaded gloss. You will love it!

8 Essential Nail Polish Colors You Should Own

Polish

Nude
There are times in our lives when we need to wear barely-there hues. It’s those moments when a trusty neutral comes into play. Opaque or translucent, there are endless ways to wear nudes. In the end it’s all about touching your nails with a creamy hint of color. essie’s Like Linen achieves just that and leaves your nails with gorgeous shine!

Red
The most versatile nail color around, it has a rich history of complementing just about any look you could possibly channel. Classic, edgy, vixen, you name it, a vibrant red flatters all skin tones and acts as a trusted best friend (this shade will never let you down). Try Dior Trafalgar or Giorgio Armani Beauty Nail Lacquer in Teatro to give your nails the right punch of color.

White
Everyone enjoys a clean slate, so when bright colors aren’t cutting it, take a break with a sleek white. Short or long nails, this is again a universally appealing hue. During cold months when you’re rocking chunky sweaters and dark denim, add a snowy, fresh edge with white nails in NARS Ecume. This stash staple also lends its brush to creating some of your favorite nail designs like this fall modern art manicure.

Navy
A close cousin to wearing black polish, a navy is a must for the fall to winter transition. Whether you’re wearing a matte, shimmer, or crème, a navy makes a statement without being too in-your-face. It’s indefinitely luxurious and looks fabulous with your favorite fashion trends. Russian Navy by OPI is a top pick, as it pulls double duty with purple inflections.

Vibrant Pink
Your navy counter part, an electrifying pink never gets old. Pink makes a regular appearance on our nails during spring and summer (and even on our toes during winter). With the right undertones a pink can morph into coral or fuchsia–covering a nice portion of the nail polish spectrum. Our go-to pink is Maybelline’s Color Show Nail Lacquer in Pink Shock. The color is guaranteed to be a showstopper for decades.

Turquoise
No matter what time of year or what type of girl you are, no one can deny the appeal of turquoise. Sure there are vibrant hues to make you swoon, but a favorite is essie’s Turquoise & Caicos. This color reminds us of past decades with a modern feel! We love the creamy finish, how it gives us an escape from pink and purple pastels, and how it makes us feel like true ladies. A light turquoise may just be the shade that changes your life, manicure after manicure.

Greige
A combination of grey and beige, the range of colors that fall under greige are breathtaking. They are your creamy autumn hues with hints of mushroom and sage. They’ll flatter your hands, warm your look, and accent a wardrobe of blacks and neutrals. The cozy color suggested to stash? essie Don’t Sweater It.

Gold
How can a color that’s been around since 600 B.C. not be considered a collection staple? The elegance that a gold nail polish exudes is timeless. The hue lends itself to the seasons, as gold flickers in the sun during days on the beach and rings in the holidays during winter months. With Maybelline Color Show Holographic in Bold Gold your nails will shine and tease the eyes with its hologram effect.
