TREND REPORT // PRETTY IN PINK

When I opened up the February issue of Vogue Paris, the “Rose d’Hiver” editorial (above) was the first one that struck me–baby pink can be a bit too girly for me–I veer towards black, white, blue and navy regularly (all neutral, I know)–but the contrast of the natural, clean hair and makeup with the cool baby pink looks fresh (less Malibu Barbie) for Spring.

All shades of blush and rose have found their way onto the runway and have infiltrated all the spring lines of makeup–whether with undertones of purple or apricot, flecks of gold and silver, shades range from the palest whispers of pink to the neon bright lipstick release from Chanel in La Diva.

Although we’ve been beaten by a few polar vortexes and the snow just won’t quit, we can mix in some pink for a breath of fresh air among the sea of black and navy.

Dior was influenced by Versailles for their Trianon collection, and have released a range of the girliest of pastels in limited edition packaging that evokes the beautiful patisseries that Marie Antoinette herself would have eaten at her country hideaway, the Trianon.

All of the items in MAC’s Fantasy of Flowers range are named after flowers, making up the prettiest bouquet of colours. With Diptyque’s Eau Rose body lotion, you will smell like the queen of the flowers.

Fabrics are wispy and diaphonous: Adam Lippes‘ slinky minimalist incarnation, and Lela Rose’s feather-light silk organza off-the-shoulder dress create the most feminine of looks.

GET THE LOOK // JENNIFER LAWRENCE, VOGUE

I love Jennifer Lawrence–she’s just so blunt and super talented. I was pretty psyched when I saw via Instagram that she had cut her hair to a shoulder-grazing length, very similar to my haircut (pft). And when I saw her beautiful shots for the September issue of Vogue this year, I was totally taken aback by the retro look she was channeling. I love it. So, naturally, I wanted to figure out how to do it (no dogs and flowers included, unfortunately).
Makeup 
Face: Jen (we’re on a first-name basis now) sports a very nude, healthy looking, matte complexion in the spread. If you’re feeling extra special, slather on a pore-filling primer pre-foundation (though not recommended for daily use, it made me break out). Now, your foundation will glide on like butta, so do your whole face and blend well. Jennifer’s face doesn’t look too made up, but she does look luminous. Apply a light-reflecting concealer pen under your eyes to wake you up and on the tops on the cheekbones. Using a medium to full coverage concealer, dab on only where you absolutely need– blemishes, spots, veins, etc. Now I’d give a one over of your face, be it with your fingers or a soft buffing brush, just to make sure everything is blended well. Finish with a translucent powder, applying only to the T-zone to avoid and overly powdered face.
Brows: I wouldn’t touch your brows if you don’t have to. Maybe just a brush through with a spoolie, and fill in any spaces.
Eyes: These are what drew me to her look. She has quite a bit of makeup on her eyes, but it’s not the first thing you notice. I love it. Start by applying a taupe-y cream shadow all over the lid, to create a solid base tone. Now, using a dark brown, semi-matte shadow, make a V-shape (ie. this), pulling it out at the outer corners and blending into the natural crease. Line both the upper and lower lash lines (not to be confused with the waterline) with a matte black pencil, not being too precise. Remember, it’s not a graphic look, it’s meant to be soft. Curl your lashes and swipe on some black volumizing mascara, getting both the upper and lower lashes. Now you’ve got some va-va-voom eyes.

Cheeks: Katniss is sporting some seriously on-trend bronzer-as-blush cheeks. Get the look with a powder bronzer, however go for a product with pink-y tones as well, it will look more natural.
Lips: Lawrence sports a nude pout throughout the spread. Hourglass just came out with a great line of only nude lipstick crayons, so it’s a breeze finding your ideal shade. Smack on some of that along with a pinky-nude gloss and you’re out the door.
Hair

Using your hands, comb through your freshly washed, wet hair with both a thickening mousse and a nourishing oil. Blow out with a big round brush (2′ is probably preferable), making loose waves. If you’ve got the knack for it, curl the pieces so that they come towards your face, if you know what I mean. Once dried, comb through with your hands and voila.
