Spring Beauty Guide + Nordstrom Trend Show

Every New York Fashion Week, Nordstrom goes backstage to assess the biggest beauty trends and then brings this intel back for customers at the retailer’s Spring Beauty Trend Event. I’ve been to several over the years and they’re so much fun—what’s not to love about getting to see all of the season’s freshest trends up-close along with insider tips, runway shows, free samples, mini makeovers and demos, and GWPs?! You know you need to stock up on bronzer and sunblock anyway! And it’s FREE! To find and RSVP to a Nordstrom Beauty Trend Event near you, click here. For a sneak-peek of all the trends, click here (hint: It’s all about luminous skin and hi-definition lips).

To whet your whistle, I’ve rounded up some of my own picks for spring below, all available at Nordstrom! 

Clockwise:  R+Co Skyline Dry Shampoo Powder ($36) – when the weather heats up, you need to up your dry shampoo game. Powder formulas like R+Co’s work overtime, especially when shaken in at the roots before bed! // Shiffa Jade Roller ($63) – Old as time yet suddenly all the rage, jade rollers stimulates blood circulation and lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness and impart a natural glow. Jade is a healing stone and a symbol of purity and tranquility. I like to use them to apply my serum or a mask, to really help it absorb. // Kypris Antioxidant Dew ($72) – My new favorite treatment product for A.M. this refreshing serum hydrates, protects, and perfects with 26 natural active ingredients. Layer it under your favorite moisturizer for all-day dewiness. // Charlotte Tilbury Unisex Healthy Glow ($40) – The self-tanner you’ve been waiting for! One part hydrating mask, one part facial faux glow, this genius lotion works wonders while you sleep.  // RMS Beauty Lip Shine ($25) – An oldie but goodie lipgloss pot that I rediscover every spring. Moisturizing, sheer yet stay-put, all-natural and in the most soft, beautiful hues. // Arcona The Solution Pads ($50) – Here come the sun spots . . . and there they go if you use these exfoliating pads a few times a week. They also give skin that smooth, taut texture that only a peel can do! // Trish McEvoy High Volume Mascara ($31.50) – Now that I’m off eyelash extensions (sniff), I’ve been experimenting with every kind of mascara I can get my hands on. Including what’s in my sister-in-law’s makeup bag. She swears by Trish and it’s definitely one is the most lengthening, glossiest, smudge-proof formula I’ve tried—and never heard of. // NARS Sunwash Diffusing Bronzer ($40) – Across between a finishing powder and a bronzer, this newish invention from NARS is so light and lovely it’s made for bronzing beginners as well as this time of year when you don’t want to overdo it, snooki-style. // Clinique 7-Day Scrub Cream ($22) – Sometimes, I just want to scrub my face. Like, really get in there. My roommate in college used this classic 20 years ago and a friend recently brought it along on a ski trip. Maybe it’s time I buy my own tube. // SuperGoop CC Cream ($32) – Trends come and go but CC cream is here to stay. This one’s my favorite of the bunch. Think of it as a tinted moisturizer with benefits—like SPF, a built-in primer, and pore smoothing skin diffusers.

P.S. This is Healing: A Letter From a Listener

Every time I get an email from a listener about how Healers has changed their life, I want to read it on air. Not to feel better about myself or the work we’re doing here, but because I want you to know that you’re not alone in your pain, anxiety or confusion, and I want you to see how these practitioners can hold space for you to find more peace in your lives. Today I’m finally going to do it. Thank you, Kristen in Arizona, for being brave enough to share your story with thousands of strangers.

And thanks to all of you for tuning in each week for this weird and woo woo ride! You’re the reason we do this show and we couldn’t do it without you. We’ll be back in a month or so with new episodes!

Shopbop Sale: Six Sporty Spring Picks!

Spring style is all about simplicity and practicality for me. It’s finally warm enough not to cover your entire outfit beneath a butt-length puffer coat, but still cool enough that you can layer a few cute pieces together. It also means mobility, and selecting pieces that get you ready and out the door quickly while ensuring that you are comfortable and ready for anything. These are the six style pieces that I’m most excited about for spring 2018, and you can find them all included in the Shopbop Spring Sale!  (use code Event18).

Crew Necks – Am I the only person who wants an entire collection of short and long-sleeved crew-necks this season? Give them to me in all the neutral colors, including stripes (stripes are the best neutral, IMO). I’m loving this one from Rag & Bone with it’s classic navy stripes and contrasting neck.

High-waisted Denim – Putting on a pair of high-waisted denim was pretty life-changing for me. Not only are they pretty damn flattering, they’re comfortable and they hug your curves in a way that low-rise denim just can’t. For spring I’m eyeing ankle length high-waisted denim, such as this pair from Habitual, which pair great with all my favorite flats.

A Sporty Jacket – Adding a bomber jacket to my wardrobe transformed how I was putting together outfits, and made me feel instantly chic for a quick errand run or walking the dog. I might have more navy in my closet than any other color, but this Splits59 Jacket had to join the team.

Cross-Body Bags – Warmer weather brings farmers markets, outdoor concerts and choosing the scene route over public transit, which means it’s also high time to clean out your shoulder bag and side down to a simple cross body bag that you can easily carry during long walks or bike rides. Tory Burch hasn’t failed me yet, and I definitely have my eyes on her Georgia Cross Body Bag in Navy.

White Sneakers – Does anything say “Spring” quite like a fresh pair of white kicks? I got a pair of these Superga 2750 Cotus last year and cannot wait to bust them out for a fresh season! They have just thick enough of a soul to offer some height, but are still comfortable enough for my long city walks.

Round Frames – While I love a thick, tortoise frame, I’m also a bit smitten with the look of round frames. I wear this Barton Perreira pair with red lipstick and a top-knot and call it a day.
