  • Seven of spring's top fashion trends

    Now that spring's here, your wardrobe might be in need of a few minor adjustments. After all, fashionable clothing is always a great way to play up and show off your perfectly applied blinc cosmetics. Once your face is all dolled up with tube mascara and liquid eyeliner, slip on a few of these fashion trends for spring 2012!

    1. Bright color-blocking. According to Glamour Magazine, bold outfits with cheerful color-blocking were all over the spring runways. Sold-color items like a wrap dress, skirt or cardigan are easy and effortless. Just make sure you stick to a maximum of three colors to avoid looking like a rainbow.

    2. '20s-inspired threads. Harper's Bazaar reports that '20s fashions were all over the runways, from drop-waisted dresses to sparkling sequins. Throw on a few classic items and don a strand of pearls to really nail the look.

    3. Pastels. It's really no surprise, but Elle Magazine points out that pastels were all over the runways, lending the shows an airy vibe that's perfect for spring. Pair pastel shades with neutral pieces or other pretty pastels for a modern take on these soft hues.

    4. Bold prints. These days, prints are everywhere, and they're bigger than ever. Glamour points out that oversized floral prints, geometric shapes and even bird silhouettes are all fair game. Pair a bold piece with understated black pants and a simple solid-colored top, or mix and match prints in the same color family for a head-to-toe statement.

    5. Anything white. There's nothing like white to break you out of your dark winter fashion slump. Harper's Bazaar reports that anything crisp, tailored and structured will fit in with spring's fashion choices. Pick up a white jacket with a statement collar or a pair of tailored cream pants.

    6. Metallic basics. Rather than keeping your sparkle to your accessories, Glamour recommends choosing metallics basics to wear with any outfit. Pick up a sparkling jacket, a pair of shiny pants or a shimmering skirt. Worn with neutrals, they look super fresh.

    7. Peplum skirts. If you're a woman who loves showing off your legs, you'll be thrilled with Elle Magazine's pick. The peplum skirt is a versatile item that can go with a number of different tops. Choose a bright color like pink and rock it with your favorite heels.

    Once you've chosen an outfit, don't forget to take your ensemble to the next level by using blinc's tube mascaras and liquid eyeliners to define your eyes and make you truly unforgettable - no matter the occasion!

  • Tips to help you combat allergy season

    There aren't many things that are less cute than red, watery eyes and a blotchy face during allergy season. If you're one of the women who wakes up every spring morning with puffy eyes and a stuffed-up nose, you're probably looking for ways to make yourself look a bit more presentable. Here are some tips to help you clear up your symptoms and appear like yourself again.

    The best way to handle allergies is to cut down on triggers that might be causing your symptoms. MSN Health recommends identifying what you're allergic to by going to an allergist for a skin test. That way, you'll know exactly what's causing you to react and you can take steps to eliminate the problem.

    It's also a good idea to keep your windows closed if you're allergic to the pollen outside, and frequently clean your bedroom - including the mattress, carpets, curtains and pillows to make sure no spores are lurking.

    Spa-sensations.com recommends talking to your doctor about an allergy medication that can help you deal with your typical reactions. There are many varieties these days, so you won't have to worry about feeling as groggy as you look. MSN Health also suggests taking the meds before allergy season takes its hold - check out the National Allergy Bureau to find out what the pollen count is in your area to help you decide when to start.

    If you're frequently blowing your nose, you may notice a bit of chafing around the area, which can be fixed with a gentle oil-free moisturizer. A good lip balm may also be necessary to avoid flaking, and an over-the-counter bottle of eye drops can help to fix any redness.

    Once you've taken the steps to prevent and treat your allergies, you can choose makeup products that can help you spruce yourself back up. Spa-sensations reports that a yellow-tinted concealer can help you cover up raw, red areas on your face. Nude or pink-toned makeup can help wake up your complexion.

    To make your eyes appear whiter, Prevention Magazine suggests using blue eye makeup. Pick up blinc's blue tube mascara and liquid eyeliner to neutralize red and make the whites of your eyes pop. As an added bonus, these formulas are guaranteed not to run or smudge, no matter how watery your eyes get throughout the day. You won't have to worry about looking like a raccoon - even on the most pollen-filled days!

  • Tips to help you safely bask in the glory of warm, sunny weather

    Now that spring is here and summer's not that far down the road, you'll probably be spending a lot more time outside trying to soak up the rays and get your skin back to its normal, not-so-pale color. Aside from wearing blinc's sweat- and smudge-proof liquid eyeliner and tube mascara, you should also be applying plenty of sunscreen. Here are a few other helpful hints to keep your skin safe from sunburn this season.

    1. Lather up on sunscreen before you get dressed, suggests Allure Magazine. This will ensure that you don't miss a spot by having to work around your clothes. It's also good to apply before exposure because the lotion usually takes about 20 minutes to soak into your skin and begin offering protection.

    2. Don't skimp. You might think that all you need is a thin layer of sunblock to get the job done, but Allure reports that you'll need at least a shot glass' worth of lotion to lather up your whole body, and an extra teaspoon of product for your face.

    3. Stay out of the sun when the rays are strongest. According to the American Melanoma Foundation (AMF), this is between 10 am and 3 pm each day. If you have to go outside during these times, make sure you're protected with SPF!

    4. Reapply often. Despite what the bottles say, most sunscreen needs to be reapplied every two hours or so, reports AMF. This is especially true if you've been sweating or swimming.

    5. Don't rely on makeup alone. Although many brands of skin creams and powders have SPF, the amount of coverage you'd get from applying the normal amount of product isn't even close to enough to protect you from a burn. Allure reports that you'd need to apply about 14 times the amount of normal face powder to get the same coverage that sunscreen would provide.

    6. Don't use expired products. While it might be tempting to use up the last of that bottle of sunblock you had since two summer ago, Allure suggests stocking up on a fresh bottle. The active ingredients in sunscreen can lose their effectiveness over time, so it's important to be wary about the expiration date.

    Now that you have the info you need to protect yourself, feel free to lather on the SPF, doll up with tube mascara and liquid eyeliner and hit the beach!
