A round-up of the crème de la crème of everyday essentials in beauty and fashion this week. Clothing basics get a sophisticated upgrade thanks to relaxed fits, expert cuts, and high-quality fabrics. Trends come and go, but good basics will always be there for you like a trustworthy friend.
With spring arriving just around the corner, it’s time to try out some of the season’s hottest makeup trends. Some of our favorite trends include soft berry lips, bright orange-red lipstick and sun-kissed, glowing skin. To create a healthy glow from within, brush a little bit of bronzer to the hollow of your cheeks and around your face in a “3” shape. Bronzer brings warmth to your face and immediately awakens dull looking skin. Sometimes we need a little help during the winter months considering the sun likes to make special appearances. If you’re looking for an affordable bronzer from the drugstore, try the e.l.f Studio Bronzer, $3 or Milani Baked Bronzer Press Powder, $8.49. If you want something a little higher end, go for the NARS Matte Multiple in Vientiane, $39. By Sarah Jaihe Lee
