I Don't Hate It »
JoAnn Orr is an LA-based make up artist and self-proclaimed beauty product junkie. For the past five years, she’s been hard at work painting faces and testing every new beauty product under the sun. Suffice to say, this girl knows her primers, lipsticks, and lotions. A true trend authority, Orr has a lot to say about how to make runway inspired looks wearable for the everyday woman. “Make up for spring 2012 is looking very ethereal, blushy, and sun-kissed,” Says Orr. “Hair trends are looking very big on shine, with lots of soft waves, colorful streaks, and tons of ponytails.” How can we incorporate these trends into our beauty routine? Sometimes, all it takes is switching a few new products into your cosmetic collection in order to make some big changes. “Maybe we can’t afford a 500 dollar purse, or a pair of Christian Louboutins, but you can spend 30 dollars on a lipstick for a little piece of luxury and enjoy it every day,” says Orr, always a true believer in the magic of make up! Thanks to Orr’s expertise we can now confidently put our best face forward, knowing which luxe beauty items are splurge-worthy for 2012.
