Even though the view out the window may not shout Spring, a quick look on the calendar confirms that Winter is indeed over.  What better time to take a look at what's new for the face?

1. Flawless skin. Okay, so this isn't really a trend, more like something we strive for at all times. For the under 12 set, this is pretty effortless but for those of us who are a little older, getting that smooth and even complexion takes a bit more work. Luckily, this is where MaMa comes to the rescue. [Link Removed] , that is.  Armed with a combination of two gentle AHAs (malic and mandelic acids) and potent anti-inflammatory marine extracts, MaMa Lotion removes the dead skin cells that can dull complexion.  Your skin will become noticeably smoother and brighter while reducing the appearance of uneven pigmentation.

2. Orange Lips.  Orange is THE lipstick color this spring.  Whether you choose a coral, melon or bright tangerine, orange can complement any skin tone.  And it's the perfect color to evoke the  feeling of being on a tropical vacation while waiting for the temperature to warm up.

3. Minimal eye makeup.   Smokey eyes and dramatic liquid liners move aside for minimal eye makeup.  Pencil eyeliner applied with a feather-light touch won't compete with the statement lips.

4. Soft blush.   Adding  color to the apples of your cheeks will accentuate the bare skin and give it a natural glow and freshness that's in step with the feeling of the new season.

5. Sunscreen. No list would be complete without mentioning sunscreen, of course! Perhaps we can be excused for skipping it during the colder months when our focus is on keeping dry skin at bay, but now that we're shedding our winter layers, sunscreen is a must, every day, rain or shine. UVA rays, the ones that age us, are prevalent year round, so a broad spectrum sunscreen is essential. Finding one that you love to wear is the key. For those who have been looking for one that doesn't leave a white finish, [Link Removed]  family delivers Mexoryl protection, is non-greasy, easily absorbed and has a dry touch finish with no white marks.

I'm so ready for a spring makeover.  Who's with me?
