Spring Beauty Regime Reboot

No time is better than now to update your beauty look for Spring. But if you’re short on time (um who isn’t) we found a quick, easy and on budget way to do it…Laura Geller Beauty La Dolce Vita.



Our two faves form the fab kit are the hybrid crème powder and Love Me Dew Moisturizing Lip Crayon in Watermelon Cooler. Score it for youtself, valued at  $124 exclusively at Ulta for just $39.

“Nail It” for Spring

If you’re getting the itch to update your look, but have a minimal budget, the answer is NAILS! And this season, anything goes. Our pal Elaine D’Farley filled us in on how to design our digits.


Basically, go with whatever your heart desires. Creative is key. Elaine likes to use Sally Hansen’s 3D textures because you just swipe them over your nail color for an instant style pick me up. So easy!

If you’re feeling funky, top on the glitter and add extra shine, or go bold with the cracked look…more sophisticated, try something matte. The point is to have fun! If you don’t like it, you can just take it off.

Skip the same old resolutions of getting back to the gym, losing weight, etc, etc. Instead, start the year off with a few beauty updates that will make you look and feel like a new YOU in the new year. Plus, they’re a little easier to attain and stick with. So, how did we get so smart? A little birdie from SHAPE, Bahar Takhtehchian, filled us in.

Tip 1: Skin Makeover                              Tip 2: Blowouts All Year Long


Amarte skincare has a two-in-one serum and toner that’s really going to help your skin look and feel more hydrated and smooth. The Aqua Veil Hydrator is infused with cucumber and optimizes your skin’s ability to absorb and retain moisture.


Upgrade your at-home blowout with a Rowenta Inspiration Pro Dryer. It has an ionic generator that reduces frizz, and a professional-quality motor reduces dry time.








Tip 3: Change Up Your Hair Color          Tip 4: Confidence with a Smile


Salon-quality color right at home with the do-it-yourself kit. It’s a foam formula, which means there are no drips, no mess, and no way you’ll miss those hard-to-reach areas.


Listerine Ultraclean has a new EVERFRESH technology that gives you a dentist-clean feeling every time you use it. Reaches 75% of your mouth that brushing alone might miss.
