My Favorite Blowouts Ever

by

If you know anything about me, you know I am a blowout addict. My family, friends, and roommates are always on me about my blowout addiction (hello, credit card bill!). “You don’t need them,” they say. And while I agree, mostly because blowouts are pricey and do seem a bit superfluous, I can’t help but ...

Melanie Mills Interview

by

Her last name might be Mills, but Melanie is no run-of-the-mill makeup artist. In fact, this Emmy-award winning celebrity makeup and skincare expert has a rather impressive résumé, including stints on hit TV shows, films, and fashion shows. Still not impressed? How about working as the head of makeup for Dancing with the Stars for ...

Summer Skin Damage Control

by

There’s no denying the magic of those long (or too short) summer months—rising temperatures, sun-kissed skin, and relaxing beachside on well-deserved vacations. But while the summer season is a favorite for many, your skin is not a huge fan. And while the sun may seem to do wonders for your complexion, the harsh rays can ...

Your Smoothest Summer Skin

by

For me, the journey to smooth skin—especially in the summer—has not always been smooth sailing. Sure, the summer season is great: rising temps, beach days, short shorts—okay, stop there. Baring my pale, flaky skin (thanks, polar vortex) is about the only thing I wasn’t looking forward to this summer. Add on my new-found spots of ...

Summer Beauty Survival Kit

by

Every month when I sit down to write this column, I think of reasons why that specific time of year is so amazing for beauty junkies. From finding red-hot lipstick shades for holiday parties, to picking out pastel nail polish shades for spring, there really is something I look forward to with each passing season ...

The Blonde Vegan Interview

by

There’s something special about Jordan Younger, a.k.a. The Blonde Vegan. Is it her bubbly, warm personality? Her relaxed, straight-off-the-Cali-beach mentality? Or maybe it’s her enviable, bi-coastal lifestyle. Okay, so it’s probably all that and more. But what we love most about Younger is her super approachable vibe and surprisingly accessible vegan blog. Unlike other health ...

Staff Beauty Picks

by

Here at Cliché, we have a tiny obsession with all things beauty. Okay, it’s more like a serious addiction.

Below ...

Spring Awakenings

by

Ahhhhhh. The sweet sounds and smells of spring: birds chirping, the buzz of lawnmowers, the smell of freshly cut grass, and the fragrance of blooming flowers. It’s as if the world is suddenly reborn, as we eagerly emerge from our seasonal hibernation. This past winter, at least for us New Yorkers, has been a long and painful one. We have The Polar Vortex to thanks for the harshest winter in years, with record low temps and towering snow drifts that still line the streets days after the official arrival of spring. Not to mention the frigid weather has really done wonders for my already dry, flaky skin. Sarcasm and complaints aside, I’m looking ahead and looking forward to spring. It’s my absolute favorite time for amping up my beauty regime. Kickstarting your beauty rebirth is a great way to banish your remaining winter blues for good. Below are my favorite beauty-inspired, spring awakenings that are sure to please and get you ready for the welcomed change in seasons. Warmer, sunnier days are on the way, I promise! Stay fabulous always. XOXO, Elizabeth A Fresh Floral Scent  Nothing says spring like a fresh flowery scent. My choice for this season? Kate Spade’s Live Colorfully Eau de Parfum ($75-95, Nordstrom). It’s everything a spring scent should be: bright and floral with hints of sparkly mandarin and pink water lily, not to mention a touch of golden gardenia and Tahitian vanilla. Pastel Nails  Don’t get me wrong, I love rocking dark hues on my nails all winter long, but there’s something so exciting about having the excuse to play with lighter, pastel shades once spring has arrived. This year, think subtle, Easter Egg-inspired mani/pedis. As usual, my go-to is Essie, with their Spring 2014 collection featuring shades like Fashion Playground (think pastel pistachio) and Romper Room (a pale tea rose). At $8.50 each, these hues are sure to please all season long. Playful Pink Lips  Goodbye holiday reds, and hello pouty pink! Spring is the season to sport kissably soft, perfectly pink lips. My color of choice this spring? It’s no other than the Rose Lily sheer pastel pink lipstick ($15) from MAC Cosmetics’ A Fantasy of Flower’s Collection. If pastel pink doesn’t suit you, there are a bunch of playful colors to choose from in this collection, including berry, coral, and peach shades that are sure to do the trick. A Royal Flush   So you might not be getting any sun just yet, but there’s nothing wrong with a hint of bronze blush to jumpstart your spring awakening. We are forever obsessed with the Two-Faced Pink Leopard Blushing Bronzer ($30, Sephora). Besides the too-cute packaging and leopard palette, we love the combination of gold bronzer and rose blush shades. Who doesn’t love a shimmering, healthy flush all over?
