It’s been a brutal winter here in Canada and just the thought of spring evokes nostalgia for radiance, vividness, brilliance and warmth, which are the colour trends for Spring/Summer 2014 – how cool is that?!

Do you want to rock these colours like a diva on the catwalk? Well, to do so, you need to know what your seasonal colour is.  Seasonal colours pinpoint the perfect makeup colours to compliment your eye, skin and hair colour.  You are either a winter, spring, summer or fall/autumn woman. I am a winter woman.
