Mid-summer is upon us so it’s a perfect time to accent your new summer tan. Femme Couture has the perfect products to highlight and bronze creating the “just back from the beach” look. Try these four products and it’s guaranteed you’ll be asked where you spent your weekend.

 1.Powder

For a soft, subtle glow use Get a Glow powder all over.

2. Complexion Enhancer

To create fabulous and defined cheekbones use Get Radiant. It only takes a pea-sized amount – a little bit goes along way! Dot the product along the cheekbones blending up and outward to accentuate this area. For added drama, you can blend it on the bridge of the nose and just above the upper lip.

3. Bronzer

Femme Couture has perfect choices of Baked Mineral Bronzer for any skin tone. To create the most natural, sun-kissed glow apply under the cheekbones, along the forehead, down the nose and along the jawline.

4. Lip Gloss

Finish off the beach look with Lip Luster lip gloss. Choosing a natural, yet high-sparkle shade will highlight your lips while looking as if you barely have anything on. My favorite is Smooth Coral. It’s perfect universal and looks great on anyone.

Neons vs. Nudes Poll

Nail polish preferences are very “Different strokes for different folks” aren’t they? I like them all, minus sheers, but tend to gravitate toward brighter, statement nails. That’s why I’m loving all this neon that has infiltrated the beauty category. My polish collection currently resembles the highlighter section of an office supply.

On the other hand, a nude nail can look so classic and polished (pun intended), and is just as trendy this summer in the nail category.

Our Favorite Spring Nail Shades

Spring is here and around our office we couldn’t be more excited. Soon we’ll be able to shed our jackets, see greener landscape out our windows and enjoy a patio lunch. There’s nothing like feeling refreshed.

I polled our the fabulous girls behind our website and social media team to find out how they’re rejuvenating their nail colors for these brighter days. Our favorite colors right now include some gold tints and pastel hues.

Our Favorite Spring Nail Shades #SallyBeauty Our staff picks (L to R): Stardust Blush, In A Lilly Bit, Thistle Do Nicely,
Spring In My Step, Amazon Amazoff, Luxe, Rockin’ Renaissance

 

“My obsession with all things rose gold this spring knows no limits, which is why I’m loving Stardust Blush from the FingerPaints Shredded Chromes collection. It hits all the musts on my list – the perfect shade, a sparkly finish and a fantastic formula.” – Lindsey, Social Media Manager

 

“Currently my favorite Spring color is China Glaze In A Lilly Bit. It’s a lighter shade of purple that’s almost neutral, but still pastel.” – Donna, Social Media Content Coordinator

 

“China Glaze Thistle Do Nicely has just the right amount of sweet coral to welcome spring, and a hint of fiery red to give winter the boot.  It’s the perfect accessory for any spring outfit without looking like a walking Easter egg.” – Kayla, eCommerce Merchandise Coordinator

 

“My current nail crush is OPI Amazon Amazoff – it’s the definition of a perfect teal with a hint of shimmer.  It adds a pop of color to my usual all black attire, and is a constant reminder of my Hawaiian vacation in a few months!” – Kirsten, eCommerce Site Merchandiser

 

“You can’t go wrong with Spring In My Step from the City Flourish Collection! The name itself gives a shout out to the season. It’s a great neutral color that complements nicely the bright hues I plan on donning this spring.”
Cami, Email Deployment Coordinator

 

“My go-to nail shade is Orly Naughty in the winter months. As the weather turns warmer and my wardrobe starts to include shades of coral and blue, I turn to Orly Luxe. This shimmery, warm, metallic shade is the perfect accent for the brighter shades of Spring.” – Shana, eCommerce Site Merchandise Manager

 

“I’m really into the nude colors this spring.  I love to pair them with FingerPaints Rockin’ Renaissance.  It’s a pale pink textured glitter that goes well with most nude colors or by itself.” – Susan, Sr. Search Marketing Manager
