Spring Beauty: Lilacs and Pinks

Stylist: Brendan Dowling

Model: Lauren Casaranova

Theme: Basic Beauty

Ushering in the Spring season with a dash of lilac and pink, Brendan breaks down his process for springtime beauty, “The goal here was to achieve a soft and easy to duplicate look. Runway looks are very severe, edgy and not easily duplicated by the everyday woman…or most everyday women may not even want to duplicate these looks. One of the runway looks that proved to be pretty and wearable was from the Naeem Khan Spring 2016 Ready to Wear Collection. Naeem Khan highlighted pretty pink lips and soft, delicate looks that are perfect for showing off beautiful skin that has been taken care of all winter long. Springtime is a time of rebirth and also a time to be inspired by all of the colors that bloom around us. In order to highlight great skin illuminated by the perfect makeup is your crown! The hair that frames the face should be just as soft as the makeup. What better than curls? In order to keep your curls intact it is important to have the right styling tools and products.
