Fashion and beauty essentials for spring

You know what I love to do when I’m bundled in sweaters, scarves, and puffer coats? Think about SPRING. I love the bold colors, peplum skirts, and ladylike dresses that are coming, and I love to think about what sorts of goodies I’m going to add to my makeup bag. In this episode, P&G beauty expert Sarah James brings us some award-winning beauty products and we dress her up in three spring looks that we’re especially excited about. 

When it comes to trends and designers, I'm all for taking risks and trying out new things. Products are a different story. I prefer to go with what’s solid and proven and effective. Sarah James brought over a few of her favorites from brands with an impressive pedigree—they’ve won a combined 32 Readers' Choice Awards and 30 Best of Beauty awards from Allure magazine in the past three years.

Youthful glow

We all want this no matter how many birthday candles are on our cake. Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream hydrates, lifts and firms around the jaw line.


Bouncy blowout

High-volume hair is key to lots of the looks of the season. To amp up fine-textured hair, Sarah loves Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions Flat to Volume Shampoo and Conditioner.


Bold lashes

Whether you prefer smoky eyes or love to rock neutral shadow and bold lips, add volume and length to your lashes with COVERGIRL’s LashBlast Fusion Mascara.


Waterproof protection

Everything starts to heat up in the spring! Secret Clinical Strength Waterproof deodorant outlasts heat, humidity, and water.


…. And the looks we love for Sarah hit on three trends we’re loving:


Colored skinny jeans

They’re still going strong. We chose a pair in an electric "Tangerine Tango" shade and styled it with a silky button-down and a some sexy pumps.


Dropped-waist dress

 Add even more sparkle to a 1920s-inspired sequined tank dress with metallic flats and statement earrings.


The urban anorak

Not the shapeless kind! Spring runways were filled with hooded, fitted options that add a sporty flair to a casual look.
