While some say spring showers bring May flowers, at Nous we know it’s time for trend watching! Burnished metallics and soft rosy hues have been making appearances everywhere this season and are showcased beautifully with a sweep of shadow above a carmine pout. Warm, neutral tones accented by a pop of color are seen on Maggimae, a color pairing that is making major waves as this year’s festival season is in full swing. Nordstrom paired with Glossier cosmetics in this luxurious beauty shoot to create a variety of looks, from fresh-faced to glamorous. With minimal jewelry and tousled hair, this shoot reminds us to put our best face forward this spring.linebreak

The Unexpected Accessory That Makes Any Outfit Pop

When you think of spring, pinks, pastels, and the like probably come to mind. But if your style isn’t overly feminine, what’s a girl to do? The key is to keep your outfit clean and simple, adding hints of color in the form of an unexpected power accessory: your lips. With sunny weather in full swing, there’s no better time than now to play up your pout with COVERGIRL’s Oh Sugar! collection. From layering your shades to creating a just-bitten look, this is how you make your lips the hero of your outfit.

Scroll down for three stylish ways to make your pout stand out.

If you want your lips to be the focal point of your look, opt for a simple silhouette in white, like this dress from the Who What Wear collection exclusively sold at Target.

 When wearing neutrals, it’s easy to pile on the jewelry. But in this case, layering necklaces and earrings could distract from your lips. Instead, add a skinny scarf that’ll help keep the attention on your pout.

Using COVERGIRL Oh Sugar! Lipstick in Punch, apply to lips straight from the tube; add multiple layers to give your pout a just-bitten stained effect. The rest of your makeup should be light and natural; after adding a hint of color to your lids, finish your look with multiple coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Full Lash Bloom Mascara to emphasize your lashes and make them stand out.

Gearing up for the weekend? Kick-start your Friday night with the latest arrivals from Clinique featuring Sydney and Monica. Clinique is pretty much our favorite go-to brand for the highest quality makeup and skincare, so we couldn’t be more proud of these beautiful ladies for being chosen to represent them!

Sydney has us swooning over her perfect dewy complexion, stunning as an exotic vintage beauty with kohl-lined eyes and the perfect red lip for one look, with flirty pink accents to smoky taupe eyes in a second more natural option. Monica, on the other hand, is making a strong impression for minimalism sporting menswear and the new Pep Start Eye Cream, creating a beautiful contrast with the vivid wash of color she wears as a modern-day flower child for her second look to promote the Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm.

Warning: Viewing WILL make you want to try out these products for yourself, so head to Clinique, bag some goodies, and thank us later!

Beauty. It’s so much more than just a pretty face, especially when it comes to the world of beauty photography! Part portrait, part fashion editorial- it’s an extremely difficult niche to master as a photographer. Not only do you have to have superior retouching skills and a keen eye for detail and editing, but you also need to have a killer makeup artist and a powerful connection with the model. A great beauty shot is something truly striking.

Jenn Collins and her arsenal of insanely talented MUAs have got all of the elements of a perfect beauty image down to a science. Time after time, Jenn and her team have demonstrated that they are some of the best artists in their field.  Here are some of the highlights of their best work with Nous Models:
