FEMALE STYLE TIPS: SPRING FASHION PREVIEW
When wearing short shorts every little layer helps. Try a button up underneath a sweater or a jacket thatâ€™s slightly longer in length than the shorts. Add a pop of color whenever possible, whether it be a bright necklace or full on printed pants. For a gorgeous and polished monochrome look, double up on pastels.

A Shade Better
Mukha Essentials was born from Maurer’s philosophy to empower women through their own unique beauty. He describes the process as “pure alchemy,” combining all natural mineral-based elements with artist-grade level of color, into a custom beauty formula that is as unique as the woman who wears it. All custom cosmetics are blended on site with direct input from the customer. The process of creating personalized foundation begins by matching a patron’s skin tone. Next, Mukha staﬀ consult with the customer to determine their skin’s speciﬁc needs. For instance, a moisturizing component could be added for someone suﬀering from dry skin, while peptides could be included for a person who is concerned with anti-aging. Blushes, eye shadows, and lip glosses are also made to order. Many of these products get their pigments and ﬁnish from crushed up gemstones like rose quartz and pearl. Furthermore a customer could choose their favorite indulgences, like real pink champagne, chocolate and crème brûlée, to add as scent infusions for lip gloss.
Everything in the Mukha Essentials collection is oil-, alcohol- and fragrance-free. Each product is engineered to work double duty to restore the texture and tone of the face. All products also have a multi-tasking component. For instance, a blush can also be used as eyeshadow and the base for a lip gloss, while a foundation infused with SPF stands in as a daily facial sunscreen. What’s even better: the cost to create cosmetics completely customized for your skin, is about the same or slightly less than mass produced products at department store beauty counters. Mukha Spa will also keep custom formulations on ﬁle so products are consistent each time a customer needs to re-stock their beauty shelf. Mukha’s custom cosmetic oﬀering is a treat unparalleled to any other and perfect for putting your best face forward.
Seemingly overnight, the popularity of nail art has exploded, launching one of the most popular Instagram tags, dedicated DIY communities and a full-blown cult following. This year during award season, the E! Network hosted a “mani cam” and encouraged celebrities to “ﬁnger walk” the red carpet to show oﬀ their nail art. Elaborate nail designs also graced the runways of New York Fashion week, warranting as much attention as the garments themselves. However, with this “anything goes” attitude comes the challenge of keeping pampered paws fresh and unique. Enter Columbus resident Natalie Dee of Super Black Lacquers, who creates completely custom nail polishes which are free from harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, and toluene.
Having worked as a successful cartoonist for 10 years selling apparel items inspired by her drawings, Dee has always enjoyed giving herself manicures as a way to destress. However feeling frustrated by the amount of time it takes trends to trickle down to the mass market, the online entrepreneur decided to take matters into her own hands by creating a side business selling custom, handmade nail lacquers. Dee ﬁnds inspiration for her custom creations everywhere from nature to children’s toys. She works to translate her vision into various nail polish color schemes using inclusions like glitter, sprinkles and holographs. In order to ensure her inclusions are stable, the designer allows them to sit in suspension for months to ensure they aren’t going to misbehave later. The various colors are
then tested and re-tested several times before the polishes are passed for production. In terms of Spring 2013, Dee says that we can expect to see lots of emerald as well as bolder colors like orange, bright pink and magenta. “A trend I am particularly into is French manicures with unusual colored tips, like bright neon or navy,” she said. In addition to her own creations, Dee also accepts custom orders and will work with a customer to build a polish that is completely unique in terms of color, texture and desired eﬀect. Her custom polishes are especially popular with bridal parties and other small groups.
Stepping out of the hustle and bustle of High Street and into Mukha Spa, it becomes immediately apparent why the urban sanctuary has become a Short North staple. With its peaceful colors, warm staﬀ, tranquil sounds of cascading waters and the aroma of the spa’s signature scent, no ambient stone has been left unturned. Now in their 10th year of business, Mukha Spa has much to celebrate. It seems only appropriate that founder and industry veteran Tim Maurer, keeps two items on hand at all times: bubbly and brie. The internationally renowned makeup artist has over 20 years of experience in the industry, has been featured in top beauty publications and ﬁlm productions and is now enjoying success as a spa and business owner for over a decade. While Mukha Spa is given much praise for their massage and skin services, their custom cosmetics line “Mukha Essentials,” is what really sets them apart, in the capital city and beyond.

LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT Trends you might hate now, but will be probably wearing later Bitchy Nails Notable for their pointy, stiletto shape, the latest trend in the world of nail art is catty claws. Spotted from coast to coast, this manicure has been popping up at New York Fashion Week and on Hollywood’s elite like Rihanna, Beyoncé and Katy Perry. It appears only a matter of time before this trend pounces on the Midwest.
Pumped Up Kicks When fashion designer Isabel Marant re-invented the sneaker to include a wedged heel, it spawned a full-blown micro-trend. Pumped up wedge sneakers are cool and comfortable, without sacriﬁcing those few glorious inches provided by your favorite pumps.
