From MAC to OPI to Kat VON D, we've got the lowdown on what's hot in makeup trends this spring.

Kat Von D True Romance

Kat Von D True Romance

If you’re going to do bright lips, it’s best to tone down your eyes. The Urban Decay “Naked” eye shadow palette sells out as fast as it gets to stores, so several other companies are getting in on the act—Too Faced has a Natural Eye Collection ($35 US) or you could try the Lorac Private Affair Palette that comes with a mini eye primer, sponge-tip applicator and 6 eye shadows ($38 US).

Or try a pastel like the Hello Kitty Charmmy Eye Shadow Stick in shade Cream Puff—a shimmering lavender ($16 US).

Kat Von D has her “True Romance” eye shadow palette available in a pastel version called Truth—8 soft shades of greens, peach, and lavender. ($34 US at Sephora) And there is the Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Palette, also 8 shades of eye shadow to take you from day to night ($38 US).

I am one of those people who tends to wear the same perfumes year-round, but for those who like to switch to lighter, fresher, scents, there are a few new ones this year, most notably Jennifer Aniston Lolavie. The notes for this fragrance are listed as: citrus grove accord, rose water, night blooming jasmine, wild violets, Amazon lily, musk, amber and sandalwood. Fragrance blogs are reporting that it is “beachy” in nature.

For fans of Bath & Body Works scents, the new addition to their lineup is Carried Away. The description from the company says that it contains “lush raspberries and juicy pear nectar with white jasmine and whipped vanilla” along with bergamot, Meyer lemon, mandarin, freesia, tuberose, violet, sandalwood and musk.

I’m just looking forward to the lily of the valley that blooms in my garden!
