Spring has sprung with vibrant colors and sun-kissed skin!  We love the refresh that comes with this new season.  To highlight some popular trends we’ve turned to our go-to makeup artist and skincare expert, Danika Blood of Artistry By Danika, for all things beauty.  Known for her flawless makeup application and tending to the skin of Hollywood’s elite at the Kate Somerville Skin Health Experts in West Hollywood, Danika has her finger on the pulse for everything up and coming in the beauty world.  Check out her top five Spring 2012 beauty tips that she has shared exclusively with us:


1.  Fuchsia!

Shades of fuchsia are so bright, cheery and feminine.  We will be seeing this color a lot this Spring.  Try NARS lipstick in Schiap for a bold pop of pink on the lips.  For a more subtle look, try Clinique Almost lipstick in Flirty Honey.  Another fun way to wear this color is on the nails.  I love Laura Mercier’s nail lacquer in Luscious.  It’s gorgeous!

2. Smooth and Glowy Skin

Spring is the time to get your skin in shape!  My favorite way to do this is by exfoliating.  One of my favorites is Kate Somerville’s ExfoliKate Intensive.  This little tube will have your skin feeling like a baby’s behind after just one use!  They also have one for the body that I love called ExfoliKate Body.  Great for the arms and dècolletè.

3. Brighten Up those Peepers!

Laura Mercier’s Secret Brightening Powder is one of my new obsessions.  Dust a tiny bit under the eye after your concealer and your eyes will look as bright and rested as ever.

4. Work on Your Tan…Without the Sun!

Try this after Tip # 2 for a longer lasting and more even bronze glow.  I love, love, love the 360 Tanning Towelettes by Kate Somerville.  They are so easy to use and won’t have that self tanner smell.  Your skin will have a natural golden bronze after just (4) hours.  LOVE these!

5.  Even Out Your Skin

Jane Iredale’s PurePressed Mineral Foundation is one of my all time favorites for evening out imperfections.  It looks super natural on and feels very light.  It’s a very “clean” makeup, which means it won’t cause any blemishes like a lot of other makeup products out there.  Another plus is that it has an SPF of 20.
