The Nordstrom Beauty Spring 2011 Essentials show on 4*2*11 @Valley Fair was Bright. Bright scents, bright complexions, bright lips & nails and bright eyes. Let me shine a light on this Spring's must haves!
Bright Scents: Bright notes of citrus, raspberry & pink pepper mix with lush floral notes of freesia, rose and lily; finish with sensual dry-downs of musk and woods accords.
Bright Complexions: Slough away flakes with a gentle exfoliate, then use an at-home peel to purify and brighten. Finish it off with a hydrating mask to moisturize your Winter-dry skin. Results are a softer, healthier, more radiant complexion.
Bright Lips and Nails: Bright lips made the biggest statement on the runway this season. It's easy to take it to realway with variations of brazen colours like tangerine, watermelon and hot pink.
Bright eyes: New advance technology in eyeshadows gives a velvety, creamy finish. Don't be afraid to accent your eyes with shimmery shades of gold, silver, copper, coral or any other iridescent shade.
Special guests this season included celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann, discussing new additions to her collection: Naked, Girls Just Want to Have Fun and Glitter in the Air.
Rita Brown for Dior educated us on the new DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum, for $28. Hot off the presses is the newly reformulated Addict Lipstick, a cross between the original Addict and Addict High Shine.
Celebrity makeup artist and BFF of Oprah, Ross Burton previewed his favourite items, such as Tom Ford Lipsticks. That white vessel is so easy to find in the bottom of your bag, which is full of black lipstick tubes and compacts.
Don't worry Gorgeous, it's easier than ever to change seasons for a budget-conscious beauty. Start with a new lipstick, a shimmery eye or a glittery nail. Add a fresh scent for a fresh outlook on Spring and don't forget to mail your RSVP to Summer, bright now. xoxo
