Ring in Florals for Spring

Floral Inspired Fashion Makeup
Floral fashion is a spring constant, though this year the patterns are bigger, brighter and more whimsical, like the kind of blooms Alice might stumble upon in Wonderland . A whirl through your favorite boutique unearths a plethora of petals done up in painterly fashion. Spring makeup colors also take their inspiration from Mother Nature's most exquisite flora.

Our makeup M.O. this season is not for shrinking violets. Try blushes in sheer rose and orchid, which promise to give you a fresh-faced look and perk up your skin (bye bye winter doldrums).

Nail polishes go floral-inspied as well. If you're hot on the heavy petal look, complement it with fingertips painted lilac, tulip (yellow, oui, oui!), even stem green. Green shades are having their big moment, so don't be afraid to paint your nails the color of the dewy leaves outside in your garden. A gloss top coat look fetching on solid polishes void of shimmer or glitter.

Braids are a perennial hairstyle fave and for spring 2010, they were piled high at Alexander McQueen. Try a braid to go with your floral-inspired fashion. The trick is to wear it slung low and loose to one side. Tuck a flower behind one ear for a fabulously floral effect and you're ready to crash the garden party.
