beauty TREND ALERT: Almost No Makeup

The air is still stuffy as the weather dabbles back and forth between winter and spring. Take care of your skin this season and embrace the bare face, helping you really focus on skin care. Instead of blush, highlighter, and bronzer, this season is all about your natural glow. Invest in quality moisturizers and spend this season preparing your skin for the harsh sun rays of summer to come. Although this trend comes around every spring and summer, this year things are a little bit different.  Instead of keeping all things bare, add a vibrant pop of color with a statement lip making this trend a little more funky than fresh.
