LUX Beauty: Spring Beauty Picks
Sunny Summer days are almost here! But that doesn’t mean that your Spring beauty picks have to be packed away already. LadyLUX has found some great products for face, nails, hair and body that can transition from Spring all the way into the Summer season. From bright nail colors to organic skin regimens, you need to get your hands on these products asap!
When spending your sunny days out and about you want to glow, not melt away! For flawless foundation application, use the Inglot Under Makeup Base before you apply. It will set your skin perfectly while creating an even canvas for the rest of your makeup to stay on throughout the entire day. The Make Up Forever HD Microfinishing powder can be applied over your foundation or worn alone to mattify your skin without changing your natural contours. The mineral powder contains 100 percent silica and softens the appearance of imperfections. It’s translucent, so it will go on any skin tone and will even out any complexion for glowing skin. The Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Météorites Perles D’azur Illuminating Powder consists of multi-colored pearls encased in Pucci-adorned packaging. It’s enriched with a corrective blue pearl to even out any skin tone for picture perfect results.
Everyone loves to have luscious lips and that starts with protecting them. Have your lips sumptuously conditioned with shea butter and botanical waxes just in time for summer when you apply Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm. There are six fresh, fabulous and flattering shades to coat your lips with. Wear it under your lipstick or by itself—the sheer tint will add a subtle pop of color on your pout. The Sugar Lip Treatment in Coral is the perfect thing to throw into your bag during the hotter months of the year. With a blend of reparative oils, waxes, an SPF of 15 and real sugar, this treatment will moisturize and protect your lips religiously. It provides essential protection against UV rays and wrinkles with black currant oil, antioxidant grapeseed polyphenols and vitamins A, C and E. Match your lips to your nail color when you wear Lippy Lipgloss by Butter London. These long-wearing, lacquer-like glosses are rich and pigmented like the polishes. They do not contain parabens, petroleum, sulfates or bismuth for pure moisture and color.
Nail your Spring look by adding some haute hues to your fingertips. Butter London nail colors can be used by themselves or even together for a more glamorous manicure. Lady Muck can be used as a base coat with Knackered for its top coat. For another cool combination, use Yummy Mummy as the base coat and All Hail the Queen as its top coat. Or, for a beautiful hue to stand on its own, use Trout Pout. You can also choose six limited edition nail colors by NARS featuring an advanced polymer system providing chip-resistant, extended and durable wear. The colors are inspired by label Thakoon’s 2012 Spring collection that was marked by vibrant and exuberant colors of an Indian spice market.
