So, who all watched the Oscars on Sunday? If you were watching closely, you should have seen plenty of spring styles! In this post, we’ll focus on what we at Alan Murphy predict will be a hot trend this spring: red lipstick and long lashes!
Spring has always embraced the red lipstick look, and this spring is no exception. But don’t go too crazy! There are some rules…
- Rule #1: Keep the eye makeup light! If you don’t, you’ll end up looking like a clown!
- Rule #2: Red lipstick tends to bleed, so fill in your lips with lip liner beforehand.
- Rule #3: It has to be the right color for it to work. For example, if your complexion is pink, you’ll look better in plum shades.
Overall, be mindful of the colors/shades you’re using. If you need help with any of this, just come in to Alan Murphy and talk to one of our stylists!
Long eyelashes have always been a sign of femininity throughout history and culture. Their purpose is to block the eye from debris and serve as a sensor warning us that an object is near the eye.
Even if you’re blessed to have naturally-long eyelashes, you still need to have the right products to accentuate them. We suggest Aveda’s Mascara Plus Rose and an eyelash curler.
A huge trend (and one we aren’t signing up for, thank you very much) are ‘permanent’ false lashes applied individually. They last a couple weeks and are especially big on the West Coast. Not ready to go the glued route? Layer on the mascara. Several coats should do you fine. Don’t believe the old beauty ‘no’ that you should only apply 2 coats of mascara. You just can’t get lush, thick lashes with only two coats.
Again, our stylists at Alan Murphy are always ready to help you out if you have any questions. Stop by and chat with us! Maybe this coupon will give you some incentive? Hope to see you soon!
