Beauty must-haves for spring 2013

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

It’s time to clean out the old (i.e. all of that fall/winter makeup that’s currently in your makeup bag) and make room for all of this great new spring makeup that’s on the market!

Here’s a great rundown of all you need to start off your spring right.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder ($45 each, Sephora.com)

What It Is: A collection of six face powders that utilize photoluminescent technology to refract light, create transparent coverage and help to make skin look younger, even-tones and radiant.

Why You Need It: Who knew that a face powder would have the ability to make your skin look so luminescent and fresh? Upon application, it’s kind of like you just photoshopped your face, so all you see is glow.

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids ($7.49 each, Maybelline.com)

What It Is: Let the bold take you away with these 10 super saturated lipsticks that promise rich, bright color that promises to last for up to four hours.

Why You Need It: These lipsticks are the best way to experiment with lip color without putting a dent in your bank account. I was surprised to see that upon application, they don’t look tacky and each contains lip conditioners and honey nectar. This means that you’ll feel like you’re wearing a super pretty shade of lipstick instead of gloss and who wouldn't love that?

Make Up For Ever Technicolor Palette

Make Up For Ever Technicolor Palette

Make Up For Ever Technicolor Palette ($45, Sephora.com)

What It Is: If you aren’t rocking a bold lip for spring, try a bold eye color instead! This new palette from Make Up For Ever has you covered in every way possible. Inspired by the 1930s cinematic transition from black and white motion picture to color imagery, Danny Sanz (Creator & Artistic Director of MAKE UP FOR EVER), purposely over-saturated these eye colors to make them appear more alive.

Why You Need It: From Apple Green to Espresso & Beige, this palette contains pretty much every shade you’ll need for the spring season. Layer the colors for an intense look, or sheer it out with just a slight swish of the makeup brush that accompanies this kit.

Cover FX Anti-Aging Smoothing Eye Primer

Cover FX Anti-Aging Smoothing Eye Primer

Cover FX Anti-Aging Smoothing Eye Primer ($34, Sephora.com)

What It Is: Keep your eye makeup looking fresh no matter what the weather with this long lasting eye primer! Unlike most, this eye primer also works to soothe, hydrate and reduce eye puffiness. It’s also vegan, paraben, fragrance, gluten, mineral oil and talc free so it’s perfect for even the most sensitive of eyes.

Why You Need It: Primers work to keep your makeup looking fresh and sometimes eye makeup is the first to slide off in sweltering heat; which makes you wonder what the point of even applying eye makeup is in the first place! Even though I’m in New York where the weather is still a bit on the chilly side, I didn't have to worry about re-applying any of my eye makeup no matter what the shade (deep or light).

Revlon Color Stay 16 Hour Eye Shadow in Sea Mist

Revlon Color Stay 16 Hour Eye Shadow in Sea Mist

Revlon Color Stay 16 Hour Eye Shadow in Sea Mist ($7.49, drugstores nationwide)

What It Is: From Revlon’s Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman comes The Pacific Collection for Spring 2013! Inspired by sculptural sea glass and a touch of Tahitian glamour, Westman created some pretty amazing eye shadow palettes that are not only super affordable, but also deliver great staying power!

Why You Need It: There are two eye shadow palettes in the collection (Sea Mist & Free Spirit) but Sea Mist proved to be my favorite because I love the way the blues and greens blend together. Also (just in case you tend to get a bit intimidated by colors such as these) there’s a great tutorial on the back to show you which shades to apply where on your eye and how to blend them.

Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss

Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss

Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss ($24, janeiredale.com)

What It Is: An ultra glossy lip gloss, this stuff goes on smooth without feeling sticky or tacky due to its hydrating formula of organic oils that include Moringa Butter, Lotus Flower Wax and Orange Peel Wax. It also contains Vitamins C & E!

Why You Need It: This is perhaps one of the worlds most perfect lip glosses. (And that’s a compliment that shouldn’t be taken lightly considering the fact that I’m a lip gloss hoarder and have tried pretty much every one ever created.) Not only does this collection contain a great selection of shades (my favorite is Red Currant), but they smell amazing and leave long lasting pretty gloss so you don’t have to keep re-applying 8 million times per day.

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes ($16 each, Clinique.com)

What It Is: The original Clinique Chubby Sticks were such a hit that the brand decided to come out with the same product for eyes! These super cute shadow sticks contain a silky formula that glide on easy. Each contains Vitamin E.

Why You Need It: If you’re not an eye shadow applying pro, then these sticks were made for you! Available twelve shades, each goes on super sheer. The best part is that each of these pencils are buildable so you can create a dark look as well as mix and match.

NARS Creamy Concealer

NARS Creamy Concealer

NARS Creamy Concealer ($28, narscosmetics.com)

What It Is: Just like it says on the packaging, this creamy concealer glides on smooth and even. However, what it actually delivers is something completely different (but in a good way). It contains light diffusing technology to blur imperfections and lines as well as even out your skin tone without looking gunky.

Why You Need It: Let’s face it: we all have those days in which our skin doesn’t look its stellar best. I like to call this stuff “Magic In A Stick” because it literally covers everything, including under eye darkness and redness. Believe it or not, it can even be worn alone (which is how I rock it) and since there’s a nice array of shades in the collection you’ll be sure to find the right hue for you.

Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Periwinkle

Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Periwinkle ($20, Sephora.com)

What It Is: Fresh off the runway of alice+olivia’s Spring 2013 presentation, this pretty blue is all you need to add a pop of color to your eyes.

Why You Need It: With its super fine tip, this eye liner is easy to apply and can be used to create a bold eye or smudge in with other shades for something a bit more subtle. It doesn’t fade or feather, so you can expect amazing stay-put color all day! Love.







House of Coach Coffret Set

House of Coach Coffret Set

    • Woman shuts down saleswoman who called her $130 engagement ring 'pathetic'

      When it comes to love, it's not about the money. Quinn and Ariel McRae dated for two years before tying the knot. But a saleswoman where the couple bought Ariel's rings tried to put a damper on the festivities by calling the jewelry "pathetic." "My husband doesn't have a lot, neither of us do," McRae explained in a Facebook post about the encounter. "We scrape and scrape to pay bills and put food in our bellies, but after almost 2 years of dating we decided that we couldn't wait anymore, so we didn't." "I wasn't even thinking about rings, I just wanted to marry my best friend," she continued, "But he wouldn't have it. He scraped up just enough money to buy me two matching rings from Pandora." The two headed to the store and picked out a pair of rings they could afford — two rings for $130. SEE ALSO: Little boy proposes to his classmate with his mom's diamond ring McRae was was thrilled to get her rings, and then, the couple encountered a saleswoman. "While we were purchasing my rings... another lady that was working there came over to help the lady selling them to us," she wrote. "She said, 'Y'all, can you believe that some men get these as engagement rings? How pathetic.'" "I watched my now husband's face fall," she continued. Quinn was already upset that he couldn't his fiancé a more expensive ring, so the saleswoman's words crushed him. "He was so upset at the idea of not making me happy enough and of me not wanting to marry him because my rings didn't cost enough money or weren't flashy enough," she explained. "Y'all I would have gotten married to this man if it had been a 25¢ gum ball machine ring" she proudly posted. "When did our nation fall so far to think the only way a man can truly love a woman is if he buys her $3,000+ jewelry and makes a public decree of his affection with said flashy ring?" McRae quickly shot down the pretentious saleswoman, calmly saying, "It isn't the ring that matters, it is the love that goes into buying one that is." "My husband was so afraid of me not wanting him because he couldn't afford a piece of jewelry," she posted. "But here I am though, courthouse married, $130 ring set, the love of my life by my side and happier than I could ever imagine." Looks like this marriage is off to a pretty perfect start. Mashable reached out to McRae for a comment, and will update the story when she replies. BONUS: Tom Hanks photobombed a wedding photoshoot in gym shorts

    • Japan's sex problem is so bad that people are quitting dating and marrying their friends

      The Japanese sex problem has become so desperate that its young population are giving up on dating and are just marrying their friends. A Government survey found 69 per cent of Japanese men and 59 per cent of Japanese women do not have a romantic partner. One Japanese aggregator website has since been awash with stories of how people have simply got married to life-long friends. The country has one of the lowest birth rates in the world, with just 8.4 children being born per 1,000 inhabitants over the last five years. Its population of 127m people is predicted to decrease to 87m by 2060. The survey, carried out by the country’s National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, also
