SPRING FASHION TRENDS

To rock it out this Spring be sure tyo include Pretty Pastels to your wardrobe. A rainbow of soft springtime shades reigned throughout the collections. The best thing about the pastel trend? You can pick your most-flattering color and wear it with whatever silhouette flatters (and excites) you. From a minty-green board-shorts suit to a sexy-CEO lilac dress to sporty baby blue bombers, the sky's the limit on how pastel-happy you want to get. Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung, Rebecca Taylor

THE CRISP, MENSWEAR-INSPIRED DRESS SHIRT ENJOYS A MAKEOVER WITH INVENTIVELY COOL, CONTRASTING COLOR AND/OR TEXTURED COLLARS AND CUFFS. THIS ELEVATED WARDROBE ESSENTIAL IS PERFECT FOR SNEAKILY KICKING UP YOUR WORK OUTFIT (JUST MAKE SURE TO BUTTON UP ALL THE WAY!). ALEXANDER WANG, COSTELLO TAGLIAPIETRA, ALTUZARRA

10 WAYS TO LOOK GORGEOUS 1. Go for contrasting lids and tips. Pair a smoldering eye look with a crisp off-white nail polish. The combo looks elegant, plus you won't have to worry about your manicure matching your clothes. Shadows we love: Bobbi Brown Eye Kohl Palette, $37, MAC Eyeshadow in Print, $13, and Chanel Basic Eye Color in Argents, $46. 2. Get tan and toned. Look like a golden goddess by mixing liquid bronzer with a firming body cream, then massage it into your arms. It'll temporarily tighten your skin and give it a glow, says Scarlett Messina, a Pennsylvania-based makeup artist. 3. Perfect your complexion. Camouflage any pimples by applying a yellow-based cover-up to counteract the redness. Use a concealer brush to pat it on precisely, then blend the edges with your ring finger, says Tracy Brennan, owner of Kalologie, a beauty boutique in Los Angeles. 4. Pump up the volume. For oomphy, tousled strands, try this trick from Nathaniel Hawkins, a celeb hairstylist who has worked with the Olsen twins: When you're finished blowdrying your hair, switch to the cool setting, flip your head over, and aim the nozzle around randomly for a few minutes. "This creates pockets of air between your locks so they look extra full," he says. 5. Sweeten up your cheeks. Create a foxy flush with a deep berry powder blush. Use a fluffy brush to swirl it in small, circular motions over the apples of your cheeks and back toward your hairline, says NYC makeup artist Greg Vaughan. This will blend the color evenly. Try Cargo Blush in Mallorca, $22.


6. Make your gloss multitask. Keep a pearly white lip gloss in your desk drawer to slick not only on your lips but also on your brow bones and cheekbones as highlighter, says Pati Dubroff, an L.A.-based celebrity makeup artist. A universal hue she loves: Dior DiorKiss in Sorbet Meringue, $19.

7. Rework your hair flair. A glittery accessory adds instant glamour to any hairstyle. If you forget to bring one to work, use a brooch from your sweater 8. Fake a gorgeous glow. Mix one part foundation with one part liquid illuminator, and then use your fingertips to massage it all over your face, says Brennan. Try American Beauty All Over Face Glow in Gold Glow, $15, and Mark Duotint in Double Rose, $6. Top it off with a dusting of a lightreflecting shimmer powder. 9. Sweeten your handshake. Since you're going to be shaking hands and mingling, mist your fragrance on your palms so that your touch will release a small amount of scent throughout the night.

10. Work a sexy updo. Starting with dry locks, tease the hair around your crown, then flip your head upside down and mist the underneath layers with hair spray, says Patrick Melville, creative director of Warren-Tricomi salons. Flip back up, then gather all of your hair — except the front section — into a loose bun and secure with bobby pins. Now mist those face-framing pieces with hair spray and use a round brush to blow dry them so they're sleek. Insert a sparkly hair accessory a few inches above one of your ears.

HEALTHY SNACKS

Snacking should be as mandatory as breakfast. Dietitian Rachel Beller, a nutritionist on The Biggest Loser, told Redbook magazine that grazing during the day has big impact. If you get too hungry between meals, that can deplete your willpower and make you consume more calories overall. The trick to snacking for health? Choose nutrient-rich foods and filling combos of protein and fiber, like these popular picks from top dietitians and weight-loss bloggers.
