TREND: NUDE NAILS
Nude polishes are universally flattering and chips barely show which keeps your manicure looking fresher longer! Wear sheer shades like Sand Castle on long nails for a glamorous look! For a chic modern look pare a solid shade like Fauno with short nails. If you want to go completely nude buff your nails and finish with top coat. Be sure to save your polish as nude nails are going to be on trend this spring!

TREND: FULL ON GLAM
Dolce & Gabbanna gave us full on glam on the runway and we love it!
Finish the look with a class red lip. We like ZuZu Luxe Starlet for a classic red lip and Vino De Amor for a deep sultry look.
TREND: OH LA LA LASHES
Add more Oh la la! to your lashes with richly pigmented mascara! You can ease in to the trend with deeper shades like Midnight Violet and Navy or go for maximum impact with Mermaid! All three colors are cool tones which are universally flattering and make the whites of your eyes look brighter. To really make your eye color pop choose a shade that accentuates your eye color, Brown eyes look glam in Midnight Violet, Blue eyes will pop in Mermaid and Green eyes will dazzle in Navy!
Take the trend to a new level with two gorgeous colors!
To achieve this look apply several coats of Mermaid on the bottom half of your lashes. Once dried apply several coats of Midnight Violet to the tips.
FALL TREND: PRUNE EYES
We loved the raspberry, chocolate and purple shadows featured on the Gucci runway! To achieve the "Prune Eye" sweep GC Aubergene shadow over lids just past the crease. Go back into the crease area and layer to create dimension. Smudge the shadow along your lower lash line and line eyes with GC Chocolate Brown liner. Be sure to apply several coats of Black Mascara. The high impact shadow is best paired with lightly blushed cheeks, nude lips and a soft brow.
Gabriel's Tip: Apply your eye shadow with a wet brush for a bolder, glossier effect.
FALL TREND: STATEMENT LIPS
This season is all about a dramatic lip.
When Luis Vuitton, Zac Posen & Vera Wang sent there models down the runways with dark sultry lips we instantly fell in love. Whether you pair with barely there eye makeup or Rebel with a dark smoky eye, we say bring on the drama!

Gabriel's Tip: Make sure lips are well exfoliated so color goes on smooth and prime to lock color in place!
INTRODUCING: EXPRESS BEAUTY
Introducing three new buidable shades for the woman on the go! Gabriel selected colors that will flatter all skin tones, they start sheer and can be layered to highlight and contour.
A pop of color on the lips is this season’s must have accessory! Wear a saturated lipstick in pink, red, or Coral to make your look bold and beautiful. If you're going to have super bold lips, make sure to wear a primer so your lipstick stays in place. Keep your eye makeup simple and let your lips make the statement!
SPRING TREND: BOLD BROWS
I loved seeing Bold Brows on the spring runways! They frame the face and create a younger fresh look. The best way to achieve this look is with a creamy brow pencil, fill in sparse areas and extend out making sure to stay proportionate to your face. Once desired look is in place set with clear mascara. Check out some of our favorite beauty icons known for their beautiful brows.
