With daylight savings in full effect and Monday ushering in a new moon, we’re definitely in a mood for change. Spring has always been a great time to shed the old and embrace the new, especially in fashion. This week, we’re letting go of the grays and blacks and letting gorgeous color take over. Long hair that kept us warm during the winter months can now also be swept aside, making way for a chic new look. Speaking of new looks, we’ve picked out 3 great inspirations for a chic spring cut. From Marion Cotillard’s angled cut with side bangs to Olivia Palermo’s do-no-wrong shoulder length waves and finally, the always style sassy Ginnifer Goodwin’s pixie, there’s a little something for everyone.

Any girl will tell you that no matter how great your makeup brush is, you’re always on the lookout for a better one. There’s always the fear that you’re missing out on something great or worse, that your current one will get discontinued. Let me start by saying that I like my makeup brushes full, thick and soft (much like how I prefer my hair too as a matter of fact but that a story for another day). After many disappointments with kabuki brushes falling apart and natural/organic brushes not living up to their best potential, I finally hit the jackpot with a recommendation that came from my make-up artist sister. One of the beautiful perks of having a lot of girls in the family is that you never miss out on a good product.
What I love most about e.l.f products is that you get something great without having to pay a fortune. Most of the individual products are under $5.00. The studio powder brush in particular ($3.00) has the fullness and sturdiness of a kabuki brush while giving you full coverage with a natural finish. It’s a dense brush that picks up the perfect amount of powder and feels incredibly soft on the skin. In addition to its anti bacterial properties, it can also be used with wet or dry products. e.l.f products are available at your local Target stores or online.
