The Beauty Beat: 4/29-5/5

Spring trends, free spa treatments and stretching.

Get the scoop on what’s big in makeup this spring from celeb makeup artist Tim Quinn, grab the girls for a spa party at Bliss and take that yoga class at IronFlower you’ve been putting off for eons. Just do it, already.


Head of Armani Cosmetics Tim Quinn knows what women want: To look beautiful. We sat down with the makeup master recently at Saks at Bal Harbour Shops and scored a few tips on what’s big for spring and coming up for summer. Here’s what he had to say:

Color: “When it comes to popular colors, look to pinks, corals and oranges in sheer for lips, which makes these bold shades more wearable, unlike a thicker lipstick.”

How to Pair a Colorful Lip: “With these kind of lips, a little bronzer goes a long way. Pair with an ethereal eye and not too much rouge.”

Skincare: “When it comes to your skin, stay away from heavy makeup. There are far better skincare products these days, so there isn’t as much of a need for so much cover up. Armani foundations offer coverage, but are light. That’s why they are always winning awards. We really do foundation the best.”

What’s Coming Up: “This summer, we’re introducing a lacquer for lips, cheeks and eyes. It’s runway inspired. And bold.”

What You May Not Know: Armani lipstick lids are magnetic to keep the lid in tact and trap moisture in the lipstick so it never dries out.”
