Demure is a sexy quality. That's why subtle style is the perfect component for your off-the-page personality -- too much glitz and it'll overshadow the real you! Painting your nails in matte colors is the perfect understated way to show some class. The non-reflective, wall-lacquer like polish is summer's coolest nail trend. Glossy and lustrous finishes have their place, but sometimes the look can come off gaudy, and even worse, messy. For an everyday chic, smooth and creamy lacquer creates a clean look that's sharp on its own accord. Matte finishes are also great for nails that you don't have time to treat -- the simplicity of the look is a great way to cover-up flaws, as more glittery polishes tend to draw attention to un-buffed fingers. With your nails matted, they never feel slimy, like with most other sparkle paints, making your nails feel closer to their natural, naked state. Take a peek at these slideshow of matte nail lacquer versions to find out just how wearable the un-shiny paint can be!
Even if you've already gotten a head-start on counting down to Spring Break, it is only the first week of March, and your dreams of a summer tan are still officially a little premature. While you can easily resort to self-tanners and bronzers to achieve the deepened skintone that the sun can't give you yet (it's the safer way to go, anyway), it's still a little early for the full-on sun-kissed look. As an alternative, face luminizers are the ideal product for transitioning from winter-dry to spring-fresh skin, and are perfect for the color-shy girls who haven't yet mastered the feat of making bronzer look totally natural. Instead of deepening color, luminizers work with your own skintone to add subtle shimmer or light-reflecting radiance to emphasize cheekbones and give you that pretty spring dewiness in a way that doesn't appear oily or shiny. They still give you the contour and glowing appearance of bronzer without the fear of piled-on color. Plus, since they're mostly sheer, application doesn't have to be perfect -- in fact, many are designed to be rubbed in with your fingers for a more natural look. Take a look at the slideshow for a selection of products that'll help you achieve the perfect springtime glow!
