Isn’t it wonderful that winter’s finally over and springtime blossoms have reappeared? Don’t get me wrong. I like the cold seasons as much as anyone, but it sure is refreshing to see bright blue skies and flower gardens again.

This year in particular has already seen an impressive new selection of products with an emphasis on bright; bright eyes, bright nails and even bright skin.

It’s time to put on your freshest face and update your beauty case for the new year. With so many products and looks, finding your favorite makeups, lotions, and cleansing products can be quite the chore.

As the year draws to a close and 2014 rapidly approaches, we’re all looking forward to new makeup and hair looks to try out.

Change is a good thing. So isn’t it time you set the traditional pink and red lipsticks aside for something a little more daring?

Every year, new trends are ushered in as others fade away, and 2013 was packed will all kinds of unexpected beauty revelations.

Now that you’re getting in the holiday spirit and dusting off your glitziest party dresses, it’s time to upgrade your cosmetics for something a little more shimmery.

Especially as the holidays are fast approaching, it’s likely that you’re going to be seeing glitter everywhere.
