Multitasking Beauty Buys on New York Live

Jeannine-morrisWant to know what my favorite multitasking beauty products are? Sure you do!  These days, with our busy schedules, if a beauty product doesn't have more than one use, it shouldn't exist.  On Wednesday I had the pleasure of doing a segment showcasing some of my favorites on New York Live with Lilliana Vasquez.  Check out the segment!

Top 5 Spring Makeup Trends

One of my favorite spring makeup trends is orange lipstick.  Call me crazy, but yes everyone can pull it off.  Last week on NBC's New York Live, I chatted with Jacque Reid about how to take the top five spring makeup trends from runway to real way. Yes, I promise you can even begin incorporating blue eyeshadow into your look. Here are all the details and my segment.

1. White Eyeliner

White eyeliner is fresh and can give the appearance of bigger eyes, while minimizing any redness in them. You can replace your black liner and  line your upper lash line or simply your waterline, because white liner makes a statement no matter where you place it.  Not ready to go bold, try a using nude for the same brightening effect. Try Rouge Bunny Rouge Brightening Liner Duo in Eyes Wide Open, $32.67 at beautyhabit.com.

2. Orange Lipstick

When trying to pull off such a striking color you need to consider your skin tone. You can wear true orange if you're have olive skin.  Otherwise, opt for a red orange like a coral.  Pick a matte consistency to help control it from bleeding and choose the intensity that works within your comfort zone using either a bit of a stain or layering liner and lipstick.  I like mark Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain in Frilly, Lolli and Pop, $7 at meetmark.comNARS Lipstick Rouge A Levres in Heat Wave, $26 and NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square, $25 at narscosmetics.com.

3. Radiant Orchid Cheeks

This look is very feminine, but can be as fashion forward as you want to take it.  Here, you want to experiment with texture.  A highly pigmented powder will give you more drama, while a tinted cheek stain will have a less dramatic effect.  Two examples: Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Plum Pop, $21 at Sephora.com and Tarte Cheek Stain in Flush, $30 at tartecosmetics.com.

4. Blue Eyelids

One of the biggest spring makeup trends is using blue on the eyes.  There are two ways to wear blue eyeliner without looking crazy.  For an all over wash of pigment, use a cream based eye shadow and take your ring finger.  Dip it into the pot and slide your finger across your lids.  You can reapply to create a bolder, more intense fashion forward look.  You can also incorporate the shade into a smokey eye.  Try using cream shadows for the all over wash of color like wet n wild Idol Eyes Crème Shadow in Distress, $1.99 at drugstores or Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Inky Blue, $25 at Sephora.com. 

5. White Nail Polish

I recommend getting this professionally painted so it doesn't look sloppy.  Some white polishes are too streaky, which makes them look cheap instead of sophisticated. Experiment with the texture and use a polish with a blue or grayish tint, because it will look good on all skin tones even if you're pale.  Check out Jin Soon Nail Polish in Kookie White, $18 at Nordstrom.com.
