Minimalistic breath of fresh air taken from nature.
This season there is a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. An eclectic, ethereal mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals take center stage as designers draw from daydreams of simpler times. Remembrances of retro delights, folkloric and floral art, and the magical worlds of tropical landscapes restore a sense of well being as we head into warmer months.
Some of our favorite springs moving into summer shades you will see in makeup for sh. cosmetics are soft, cool hues blending with subtle warm tones to create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.
Soft pinks throw a wonderful glow to the skin on the cheeks and lips and compliment all skin tones.

Wine shades that show strength and confidence with a natural earthiness. Perfect for eyes or lips.
Custard shades are sweet, sunny cheerful and a perfect neutral highlighter to the eyes or face.
Gray shades which are cooling and provide a perfect backdrop to highlight any eye color and a perfect solid like a rock, neutral shade.
Cool blue shades- calming, watery feeling, transparent feel and stress releaser and a wonderful accent to the eyes.
Soft cool orange-energizing yet not jarring to the eye. Tangy inviting shade that invites a smile to the lips worn alone or a friendly enough to highlight the eyes.
“Many feel compelled to be connected around the clock because we are afraid we’ll miss something important. There is a growing movement to step out and create ‘quiet zones’ to disconnect from technology and unwind, giving ourselves time to stop and be still. Color choices follow the same minimalistic, ‘en plein air’ theme, taking a cue from nature rather than being reinvented or mechanically manipulated. Soft, cool hues blend with subtle warm tones to create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.”

January tends to be the month of broken promises. But why not make 2015 the year you pick resolutions you can totally keep? I started writing my own and with success in mind, I called on some of my favorite experts to offer up their beauty resolutions, smaller goals from the inside out for self-improvement in every aspect of our lives. Here is the advice that'll make this year your best ever.
Drinking tea makes me feel incredibly relaxed yet alive at the same time. I get giddy when I find new flavors yet I never take the time to make it! This year I will create a tea experience each evening. No microwaving, no tea bags. I will boil water, add tea leaves, and slowly enjoy each sip. Not only does tea have intense healing properties (from skin beauty to cancer prevention), but the entire tea experience makes you energized and alive! #beautyfromtheinsideout

When I was a child my father always said “Don’t let the turkeys get you down”. I always wondered what this meant. Years later, after my father passed away suddenly, I figured out the meaning of this saying..which lead to my philosophy of life. I learned that to be a beautiful, mentally healthy person, one needs to let things go. Don’t let the little things affect your inner beauty and your outer beauty will shine.

Here's my healthy resolution for 2015: "Upon waking up every morning, to sit on the floor and experience the sound of silence and of breath coming and going from the body. This allows me to tap into the unmanifested source of all life and creativity, which creates a peace that stays with me throughout the day, even when life gets hectic."
Anger blocks Liver chi from moving freely which causes pain, stiffness and an ugly face. Nothing makes me crankier than being mad at someone and not saying it. Fear that stops me from expressing anger and that blocks the love I want in my relationships. I'm resolving to let that stuck chi flow, speak my mind, and letting go of anger.

“The biggest change I am making to my morning routine for 2015, is making a conscious effort to wake up earlier than anyone in my house so I can have just a little bit of quiet time to myself to prepare for the day. Taking this time to compose myself, put on some concealer and blush and face the day in quiet is already paying off in happiness dividends, plus I feel fresh and ready for the day when everyone wakes up!”

My 2015 beauty resolution is to accept the things I can’t change, and change the things I can. Age creeps up on you, and forces you to reassess. I am accepting me for whom I am. Wrinkles and all, meanwhile I’ll treat my mind body and soul well with exercise, surround myself with like-minded positive people, keep up a healthy vegetarian diet, eat organic as much as possible while I continue to create and share products that protect and promote healthy skin, inside and out, nothing but the best for our largest organ the skin!
