March is just a couple days away and with daylight saving time, spring, Easter, and St. Patrick’s Day- it is a month full of change and new beginnings. Still working on how Patty’s Day fits into that, but point being – March is a great time for a mini (or MAX) makeover!
Schedule a haircut, do some spring cleaning on that skin, get a fresh face complexion, a warm glow, and a sweet pout. Want some suggestions on how to do all that? Here’s how I’m getting it done! —
Haircut: The wob and lob (or wavy bob and long bob) are still going strong. I’ll be going for the lob. It’s a great length to update your look without going too drastic. The lob is long enough to throw in a pony tail or top knot, and to camouflage those clip-in extensions for the days you’re craving length.
Skin spring cleaning: Whether you schedule a facial or do an at-home peel, give your face a pamper and jumpstart that glow with some spring cleaning exfoliation. I’m partial to the annual laser peel coupled with regular at-home treatments. The 3-step Power Peel by Ole Henriksen (6 treatments for $50) is one of my all time favorites!
Fresh face: I recently discovered the Burberry Beauty ‘Fresh Glow’ BB Cream ($44, I wear the Medium) and I love it. Super hydrating, it’s perfect for bringing winter skin back to life. Mix a pump of the BB cream with a pump of Burberry ‘Fresh Glow’ Luminous Fluid Base ($48) for an extra shot of radiance. The Luminous Fluid Base comes in two colors – Nude Radiance (perfect for spring), and Golden Radiance (for that summer glow). I, of course, have them both.
Warm glow: Last month I searched all over and tried many products in my hunt for the perfect bronzer. I wanted something not sparkly and not orangey. And Burberry came through for me again. The Burberry Beauty ‘Warm Glow’ Natural Bronzer (No. 1 Warm Glow, $52) is everything I hoped for and more… except for the price. It was hard to part with $52 for a bronzer (?!!?!), but when I say I tried many products – I really mean a $#!+ TON. And for me, the Burberry Warm Glow Bronzer was – at that point – worth it. And I will say that the Burberry bronzer seems to be really highly pigmented, i.e. a little goes a long way, so I’m hoping it will last and last and last.
Sweet pout: While at the Burberry counter I also discovered the ‘First Kiss’ Fresh Gloss Lip Balm (No. 1 Soft Peach, $26). A soft glossy balm with a hint of color and not at all sticky! Want a bit more color? Check out the color lineup from my lovely lips post a few weeks back.
