The Haute List
Learning about fresh and new makeup for Spring is like dipping hands into a candy jar with so many different shades and flavors to take in and consume. A trip to the mall can be nirvana when heading to a favorite makeup counter or an overwhelming experience. Always have a plan and a list for starters to avoid the "I am melting down" syndrome. Recently on such an excursion a new foundation that is utterly silky and sublime on skin made it home along with a few other items. Let the games begin. Winter is indeed over and Spring has arrived like a lion.
I. The Haute Foundation: It is important to start with healthy and clean skin before adding a foundation that evens out skin tone. Yes - you need foundation even if you hear you don't because you are using the latest and greatest miracle skin care line. Finding a skin care routine is personal and depends on the condition of your skin. I have tried many lines over the years and have seen a dermatologist with rashes more times than I can count from harsh and active chemicals. For me, always trial and error. Luckily, I have found a good line of skincare that keeps my skin happy. And, as one ages, there is a need for more moisture and other ingredients to keep the skin moist. Definitely invest in a high quality skin care line. After the skin is cleaned and moisturized - a foundation with SPF is key. This weekend, I happened upon Cle de Peau Beaute Radiant Fluid Foundation SPF 24. Oh my gosh - amazing. The foundation goes on like silk and gives a dewy and beautiful finish. And, I didn't break out!! This is top of my list for Spring Makeup 2017. Expensive - yes - but will last for months.
Use only half a pump!

II. The Haute Mascara: Like skin care and foundations - I have tried many many mascara brands. I received a sample of MAC 'In Extreme Dimension Lash' Mascara and was surprised at the length and volume. Eyes will pop open with no clumping or flaking. With the unique brush every eyelash is covered in a conditioning formula. Absolutely a must have for Spring 2017!

III. The Royal Eye Shadow: Purple or lilac eye shadow is the "it" shade for Spring 2017 makeup. This Lancome Color Design Eyeshadow Pallette set is essential with a combination of hues that will highlight the eyes. Hazel eyes will appear very green and so pretty.

That is it for now. Until next time - enjoy the beauty of Spring 2017.
